As time is passing by, more and more reports regarding the unavailability of Android 10 updates for various smartphones are creeping up. Another entrant of this list is the Razer Phone 2.
Razer Phone 2 is a powerful gaming beast that is meant for hardcore mobile gamers and was launched back in 2018. Earlier, we have documented a report that as per the Razer Phone support representative, that there is no exact date for the Android 10 release.
But, this report is from December 2019 and we are in the last month of Q1 2020. By the looks of it, there is no clarity regarding the compatibility of Razer Phone 2 with Android 10, let alone any fixed date for the release.
And adding fuel to the fire, in a new development, when Redditor u/TheNotoriousYoda, asked Razer Phone chat support about Android 10 update plans of Razer Phone 2, support stated that the engineering mobile team has feedback as of yet regarding this.
In fact, the mobile team is yet to review the compatibility of the phone and the team will soon announce if they have any plans for it.
So, what we can depict from the above response by the Razer Phone chat support is that there are still no plans to update the Razer Phone 2 to Android 10.
Since the device came out in 2018, the device is eligible to get updated to Android 10 OS. Moreover, the handset is now picking up the February 2020 security update, which clearly indicates that Android 10 is not imminent, this month at least.
