Asus ROG Phone 2 is the most impressive specialized smartphone now thanks to its strong configuration, high-frequency scanning screen, terrible battery, and unique and complete accessory ecosystem. The world’s first Snapdragon 855 Plus-fueled smartphone is here and The first gaming smartphone under its Republic of Gamers (ROG) was called a ROG Phone that came with high refresh rate OLED display. The latest ROG Phone II from Asus powered with the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 855+ SoC with GPU overclock to 675MHz, Prime core Overclocked to 2.96GHz.
The display has received a major upgrade. It’s a 6.59-inch 1080p OLED panel with an integrated fingerprint sensor, support for 10-bit HDR, and a Razer Phone 2-matching refresh rate of 120Hz. The touch sampling rate is twice that, at 240Hz, and Asus claims its touch latency of 49ms is the lowest of any phone.

Behind the screen, there’s a Snapdragon 855 Plus processor, which is Qualcomm’s new gaming-focused SoC that provides 15 percent faster GPU performance and higher peak clock speeds on the CPU. Asus says its cooling system, including a vapor chamber and vents, will prevent throttling of the 855 Plus’ peak speeds. The ROG Phone II also has 12GB of RAM, up to 512GB of storage, a 48-megapixel camera, and a 6,000mAh battery that the company says should be good for more than 7 hours of PUBG with the screen set to 60Hz.
