Reviewers were quite displeased with the overall quality of the dual 12 MP camera setup on the Razer phone, so the Razer CEO himself came forth and ensured everyone the company is well aware of the camera bugs and it will roll out fixes in the coming weeks.

Razer has recently unveiled their gaming smartphone that is first to feature a 5.7-inch 2K display with 120 Hz refresh rate and Ultramotion technology, which is similar to Nvidia’s Gsync or AMD’s Freesync technologies. Since it is meant for gaming, the specs on the Razer Phone make it faster than some of the most powerful smartphone models of 2017, including Samsung’s Galaxy S8. The Razer Phone is also equipped with advanced imaging hardware like the dual 12 MP cameras with smooth zooming / dual-tone flash. The quality is great... on paper, but reviewers found out that the camera setup has some major software flaws. A fix for this issue was requested by most of the reviewers, so Razer went ahead and announced through a Facebook post coming from its CEO Min-Liang Tan that the next updates will first and foremost focus on the imaging aspect of the phone.

Tan explains that the Razer Phone team will roll out improvements for the camera app in the near term. Users can expect performance updates for the shutter speed and the low light accuracy. These features should be released in the next few weeks, but more improvements will come in the coming months. The next major camera app update will include a new instazoom button, portrait mode, 60 fps video and additional speed improvements. These should come in Q1 2018 with the Android Oreo update planned by Razer.

All upcoming announcements regarding the Razer gaming phone will be posted on Facebook and Twitter, so make sure to follow those accounts.

I stepped into the wonderous IT&C world when I was around 7. I was instantly fascinated by computerized graphics, be them from games or 3D applications like 3D Max. I like to keep myself up to date with all the new technologies that get released at an ever increasing rate these days. I'm also an avid SciFi reader, an astrophysics aficionado and, as of late, a crypto geek.
