If some of the $ 1000 + prizes on new flagship phones give you a sticker, you might want to turn off Razer's online store tomorrow. Razer Phone 2, upgraded and competitive with most new phones by the end of 2018, will be just $ 499.
It's for the unlocked, carrier-agnostic version you buy from Razer yourself. AT&T also sells the phone that several retailers like Amazon. They should reflect this change tomorrow or shortly thereafter – it's a $ 200 discount on Razer Phone 2's current price. There is no word on how long this promotion price will remain (if it is advertising at all), so take a quick if you're ready to buy.
But wait, there's more! Razer also announced that the phone will be upgraded to Android 9.0 Pie from today. Razer's phone software is already pretty close to stock, with some game-friendly additions to take advantage of the 120 Hz screen and illuminated rear logo. Razer's consistent updates were a highlight of the original.
It takes about six months for Razer to get the upgrade in the hands of the users, which is pretty good – my Oreo gasket Galaxy Note 8 looks jealous of both the new software and the low price.
