Razer has mentioned that the android should be available for download by mid-April this year. However there no changelog available for the Android 8.1 Oreo as of yet, so it would be hard to point out what new changes could be. For the users who wish to get their hands early on the 8.1 Oreo update, manually downloading the developer preview would do the trick. However, it would be worth noting that the developer preview might not be a perfect update as it may have some bugs and could hamper the daily performance of the device. That said let's have a look at the specification and features of the Razer phone.
