Razer Phone receives major camera update

Starting today, the Razer Phone is receiving a major update that address some issues that have plagued the device since its launch last month, most notably the disappointing camera performance.

Razer jumped into the smartphone market this year for the first time with the Razer Phone. It was the fruition of its purchase of Nextbit Robin, and thus delivered a metal version of the phone. It’s an impressive device, with its sturdy design and 120Hz refresh rate display standing out the most, but its camera left a lot to be desired. The update is meant to course correct that.

Among the camera improvements, the update adds improved shutter speed in low light, reduced noise and clearer shadows and improved quality picture with better color cast. This should hopefully improve what has been by far the weakest part of the Razer Phone.

Other refinements include audio improvements such as fixing issues with Dolby audio and “tweaked nobs” for greater clarity during playback and display tweaking with smoothed out auto-brightness luminosity.

All Razer Phone users should be receiving the update today.
