The Razer Phone was released back in 2017 and came with the first 120Hz display on any smartphone. It was also one of the first dedicated gaming smartphones, a category which has only grown in popularity over the past two years. The phone launched on Android 7.1.1 Nougat and got subsequently updated to Android 8.1 Oreo.
Starting today however the phone is getting its second major update - Android 9 Pie is seeded alongside the July security update. The new firmware comes in at just over 1GB and will likely be the last big update for the phone.
The changelog reveals lists the standard Android 9 goodies including Digital Wellbeing, Adaptive Battery, Gesture Navigation and better notification management.
Other additions include bug fixes and improved performance. As with most firmware updates, this one comes with a scheduled release so it can take some weeks until it reaches all areas.
That information is outdated and false, a modern LCD drains less than OLED while its on but more when both is off since the OLED actually shuts down parts when they display black or nothing... Tough if both shows majority black the OLED wins if both ...

Pretty sad to only be getting 9 when 10 is likely mere days away.
