The Razer Phone 2, the company’s flagship gaming phone will soon be powered by Android 9.0 Pie.
Mobile gamers can look forward to a major software update to the Razer Phone 2 to Android 9.0 Pie, which provides operating system enhancements including gesture-based navigation with Google Assistant, interactive app functionality and search, battery life optimization, privacy features including background app controls, access to digital well-being, video recording in 4k at 60fps.
Android 9.0 Pie is designed to adapts to how you use your phone, learning your preferences as you go. Your experience gets better and better over time, and it’s supposed to keep things running smoother, longer with features such as adaptive battery and brightness.
Its App Actions predicts what you’re about to do, so you get to your next task more quickly. If you do something like connect your headphones, the playlist you were listening to earlier is front and center.
The new features also looks after your digital well being with improvements to Do Not Disturb to silence not just notification sounds, but also all the visual interruptions. Calls from starred contacts will still come through, so you don’t have to worry about missing something urgent.
Discipline your usage and set a daily schedule to get your phone ready for bed. Grayscale fades your screen to gray while Do Not Disturb silences notifications for a restful sleep. In addition, App timers let you set daily time limits for your apps. When you reach the limit, the app is paused for the rest of the day.
It all comes together on the App dashboard which provides a daily view of the time spent on your phone, how frequently you use different apps, and how many notifications you get.
The new Android 9.0 Pie operating system version will be delivered via Over-the-air (OTA) update to all open market Razer Phone 2 units, commencing from February 27, 2019 (US PST).
The update will then start rolling out to all carrier phones in accordance with each specific carrier software build.
