Razer Phone's cameras will get better soon thanks to software updates

Launched in the US last week, the Razer Phone is one of this year's most interesting handsets - not just due to the fact that it represents Razer's first foray into the smartphone market, but also thanks to its appealing list of features (including 8 GB of RAM, and a 5.7-inch Quad HD screen with an impressive 120Hz refresh rate).  


While Razer seem to be very happy with its first phone, right now, the company isn't fully satisfied with the experience that the handset's cameras (8 MP front, dual 12 MP rear) are offering. Thus, the company is working on software updates to improve things.  


According to Razer CEO Min-Liang Tan, over the next few weeks, the Razer Phone will receive updates bringing enhancement related to low light camera performance and "many other optimizations" (all related to the camera app). In the coming months, the camera app will also get an "instazoom button" (to better make use of the rear shooter's 2x optical zoom), plus "4x slow motion" (120p) video recording capabilities.


In the first quarter of 2018, the Razer Phone will be updated to Android 8 Oreo. This update will include even more camera improvements, like portrait mode, 60p video recording, and increased overall speed.  


It's nice to see that Razer is committed to continuously improve its first phone, isn't it?
