Razer Phone Android 8.1 Oreo update rollout on hold due to issues
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.”
It's unclear whether the Android 8.1 Oreo update has been delayed in other countries as well, but we know for sure it's already available in the United States.
Razer Phone owners who have already updated to Android 8.1 Oreo complain of issues with the SIM card. Apparently, the issue is widespread as consumers all over the world claim they have cellular data problems regardless of the carrier they use.
There's no official statement from Razer yet, but since Three confirmed the company has already acknowledged the issue, we're expecting a fix to be released for all Razer Phone users who already updated to Android 8.1 Oreo.
