ASUS has released their first gaming smartphone and it is called ROG Phone II. The hardware in this model is insane, as it comes with an overclocked CPU, 120Hz refresh rate support. This new phone is available for purchase starting from tomorrow in China, while the rest of the world should get it in September this year.
Being a supercharged gaming smartphone means that the hardware parts packed by the ASUS ROG Phone II should be incredible. This smartphone packs a 120Hz capable FullHD+ AMOLED screen, under-display fingerprint scanner, an overclocked Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Plus capable of reaching 2.96GHz, 12GB of RAM, 512GB internal storage, 48MP rear camera designed by Sony, a secondary front-facing camera with 24MP, a 3D vapor chamber to reduce throttling when gaming, 6000mAh battery capable of 30W fast charging, 3.5 mm headphone jack, dual front-facing stereo speakers, and others more.
The ASUS ROG Phone II is going to run the Android 9 Pie and you can choose between running the stock Pie interface and the ASUS ROG themed UI. The stock Android should offer you an experience that is closer to vanilla Android found on the ZenFone 6, while the ROG UI is an updated UI with several extra visual tweaks.
The screen of the ASUS ROG Phone II comes with 60Hz capabilities out-of-the-box, but you can change the refresh rate from the Display settings. A cool thing about this phone's screen is that you can set different refresh rate values for individual apps. ASUS also states that this device might be the most powerful unit currently on the market and if you decide to buy it, then you should also know that they are releasing several accessories for you to enhance your experience even further.
Here are some of the great accessories that you can buy with the ASUS ROG Phone II: AeroActive Cooler II, an Aero Case, Mobile Desktop Dock, Pro Dock, RGB Lighting Armor Case, ROG Kunai Gamepad, TwinView Dock II and the WiGig Display Dock Plus.
