ASUS confirms that the ROG Phone 2 will have a 120 Hz display
The ASUS ROG Phone was one of the best gaming smartphones of 2018. It not only had an excellent 90 Hz AMOLED display but also surprisingly good cameras and useful gaming accessories. Last month, ROG posted on Weibo that it had partnered with Tencent Games to develop games that could run at 120 Hz in anticipation of a ROG Phone 2.
Now, the company has reaffirmed that the ROG Phone 2 will have a 120 Hz panel and that it is almost ready to hit the shelves, putting it on track with its expected release this month. Chinese website DigiTimes claims that ASUS will unveil the device in Beijing on July 23, with the company showcasing it at the China Intl Digital Entertainment Expo & Conference (Chinajoy) in Shanghai between August 2-5.
ASUS should equip the ROG Phone 2 with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 SoC, along with at least 8 GB of LPDDR4 RAM and UFS 2.1 flash storage. The device should also have a large battery since its predecessor had a 4,000 mAh capacity. The ROG Phone also retailed for around US$900 too, so expect to see ASUS price the ROG Phone 2 at around that level.
