ASUS introduced the second-generation gaming smartphone ROG Phone 2. It was the first device to receive the recently announced Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Plus processor.
The device is equipped with a 6.59-inch AMOLED display with a resolution of 2340×1080 and support for 10-bit HDR, a dual main camera with 48 and 13 megapixels, a selfie camera with 24 megapixels and a battery with a capacity of 6000 mAh. The latter, according to the manufacturer, should be enough for 7 hours of continuous play in PUBG Mobile.
In addition to the Snapdragon 855 Plus chipset, the hardware base is 12 GB of RAM and up to 512 GB of internal flash memory. Users will be able to choose the interface between the ROG UI shell and Android 9.0 Pie. ASUS also claims that the delay in touch is 49 ms, and this figure is the lowest among all smartphones.
The company has expanded its range of accessories ROG Kunai Gamepad, TwinView Dock II and AeroActive Cooler II. The smartphone will go on sale in China on July 23 and in the US on September 1. The price of ROG Phone 2 has not yet been announced, but, as the manufacturer noted, it will be at the same level as the cost of the original (from $ 899).
