Razer Phone update adds Portrait Mode, new privacy policy for GDPR compliance
Razer and its gaming smartphone are making headlines once again. The most recent update available for the Razer Phone promises to bring some camera improvements and security changes for GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) compliance.

The most important new feature is the addition of the new Portrait mode, which is supposed to allow Raze Phone users to “take fantastic Portrait shots.” Furthermore, the Privacy Policy has been updated for GDPR compliance, which will be effective beginning May 25.

The 370MB update includes some bug fixes and performance improvements, according to the official changelog. One issue in particular that many Razer Phone users have been complaining of, the multitouch bug should be addressed in the update.

Finally, Razer has decided to include the May security patch along with the update, so Razer Phone owners should be up to date with the security updates that Google releases each month. The update is deployed in waves, so if you see a notification on your phone, then you can go ahead and download it, otherwise, you'll have to wait a few more days.
