Razer Phone Android 8.1 update is on hold after reports of SIM issues

The Razer Phone was not only the first smartphone announced by the gaming-focused Razer company, but also the first handset especially made for the rising mobile-gaming scenario. The device came with high-end specifications and a stunning 120Hz display, however, it came with Android 7.1.2 Nougat, although Oreo was already available for manufacturers.

True to its promise, Razer started the Android 8.1 Oreo rollout two weeks ago, but the update has yet to reach some markets. Unfortunately, things don’t look so good for Razer Phone owners in the UK, as one carrier announced the update has been delayed.

According to UK carrier Three, Razer confirmed that Android 8.1 Oreo for Razer Phone has been delayed due to some issues. Three says that it’s working closely with Razer “to get a reliable 8.1 software update soon and hopefully a release can be pushed out in the near future.”
