About a month ago, Razer announced that it will improve the camera of the Razer Phone through a series of software upgrades. The gaming is indeed delivering on that promise, as a new update is now making its way to owners around the globe.
With a size of 97MB, the patch introduces a number of camera and audio improvements in addition to various other tweaks and fixes. Here are the highlighted changes in this build:
Improved shutter speed in low light and when using HDR
Reduced noise and clearer shadows
Improved picture quality with better color cast
Crushed bugs and performance improvements
"Tweaked the knobs" for greater clarity during playback
Improved call quality for HD Audio
Fixed some issues with Dolby audio
Smoothed out the auto-brightness luminosity
Updated Arrival theme icons to a dark style
Various other bug fixes
The update is available OTA, but it might need some time to reach all compatible devices. As always, make sure that your phone is sufficiently charged before proceeding.
Other changes that you should expect to see in the following months include further improvements to low-light performance, the inclusion of an "instazoom button", and "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.
