Images of the Asus ROG Phone 2 surface on the web
The Asus ROG Phone 2 is a device that gamers are eagerly waiting for. While there is no official news regarding the release date, or launch date of the handset, for that matter, information regarding the gadget started surfacing. First of all, we found out that the next gaming smartphone made by Asus will have one of the highest refresh rates, 120Hz, available on handsets. Now, thanks to a couple of images that recently surfaced on the web, we also know that users will be able to set the refresh rate of the smartphone according to their current needs.
The images showing what seems to be the Asus ROG Phone 2 appeared on Weibo and they show a smartphone that doesn’t get in line with any other current flagship device. Instead of opting for a punch-hole selfie camera or even a notch, Asus seems to have stuck with the traditional bezel housing the front-facing camera sensor. The back of the smartphone, on the other hand, is probably going to be really different from any other devices with its specific design that certainly impresses a lot of gamers. Naturally, the handset features a large screen that will turn playing games into a real blast.
While there aren’t too many pieces of information out there regarding the Asus ROG Phone 2, the manufacturing company did confirm that it will sport the brand new Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Plus chipset. At least 8GB of RAM and 128GB internal storage are also in the cards. The first ROG Phone also offered ultrasonic triggers and a variety of accessories that will most likely be available with the Asus ROG Phone 2 as well. It’s not quite clear yet whether we should be expecting an OLED screen or an LCD one, however, the majority of people do bet on an LCD display as this is the type used in other devices with high refresh rates too.
Asus will soon have a ROG event, so we might find out more about the upcoming Asus ROG Phone 2 then. The event will take place on July 23rd which is only a few days away. Even if the company announces the handset at this event, the release of the smartphone will probably not be immediate.
