If you’re the owner of the Razer Phone 2 and are wondering where the Android 9.0 Pie update for your phone is, not to worry because it looks like it should be released in the next week or so. This is according to Razer who announced that the Android Pie update will be issued to the Razer Phone 2 starting on the 27th of February.

For example AT&T is only expected to release their update for the phone on the 4th of April, while other carriers will begin pushing out their updates on the 14th of March.
