Android 9 Pie may be coming to the Razer Phone 2 soon
A recent posting on Geekbench's benchmark site shows a Razer Phone 2 running Android 9.0 Pie. This could mean that Razer is testing Android 9 on their latest handset and may be releasing an update soon. This would put the Razer Phone 2 in an elite class, as only a handful of other phones are running Android 9.
The Razer Phone 2 is one of the best Android devices on the market, and it may be getting even better. According to a recent result listed on Geekbench, Android 9.0 Pie may be coming to the Razer Phone 2 soon.
The post, which is dated November 2, can be found by searching for the Razer Phone 2 in Geekbench’s online database. The operating system listed for the benchmarked device is Android 9. The scores themselves are also fairly impressive: this Razer Phone 2 scored 2364 in the single-core test and 8857 in the multi-score test.
If the Razer Phone 2 gets updated to Pie in the near future, it’ll join the small echelon of Android phones to run the latest and greatest from Google. As of this writing, the only devices that are running Pie are the Essential Phone; Google’s own Pixel family of phones; the Huawei Mate 10; the OnePlus 6 and OnePlus 6T; and (as of today) the Pocophone F1. If you’re a Razer Phone 2 user, keep your eyes peeled for an update notification.

I've been a computer geek my entire life. After graduating college with a degree in Mathematics, I worked in finance and banking a few years before taking a job as a database administrator. I started working with Notebookcheck in October of 2016 and have enjoyed writing news and reviews. I've also written for other outlets including UltrabookReview and GeeksWorldWide, focusing on consumer guidance and video gaming. My areas of interest include the business side of technology, retro gaming, Linux, and innovative gadgets. When I'm not writing on electronics or tinkering with a device, I'm either outside with my family, enjoying a decade-old video game, or playing drums or piano.
