Even though the ROG Phone is not yet available for purchase, Asus fans are already coming up with interesting design ideas for the 2.0 version of the device. Concept creator's design includes a slimmer metallic case, red accents on the back, streamlined air vents, a repositioned dual rear camera setup, plus a sliding area housing a selfie cam, which allows for a truly bezel-less screen.

Asus announced the ROG smartphone at Computex earlier this month and it looks like many Asus fans are loving its revolutionary design and all the crazy attachments that come with it. Unlike previously launched gaming phones from Razer and Xiaomi, the Asus ROG phone really integrates a custom-cooling solution that allows the Snapdragon 845 SoC to overclock to 2.96 GHz. While the ROG smartphone is not yet available for purchase, a well-known designer aptly named Concept Creator released what he believes the second gen ROG phone should look like, hoping that Asus would take some queues from him.

The 25-second teaser presents an overall slimmer device with red accents and more streamlined air vents on the back, which rapidly disperse heat from an improved version of the vapor chamber cooler. This cooler will most likely deal with an overclocked 7 nm Snapdragon 855 SoC running at 3+ GHz. The rear camera setup is repositioned towards the upper center of the device and it looks like there are two sensors, so nothing crazy in this department.

What really stands out is the sliding action featured towards the end of the presentation. Such a sliding design could allow Asus to include a truly bezel-less screen and hide the selfie cam with the other front sensors in the sliding area. This area area may also house additional gaming tech or even more RAM, meaning that the 2.0 version of the ROG phone could come with as much as 10 GB RAM.

Of course, Asus could completely ignore these ideas and come up with its own interesting designs. Judging by the hype behind the launch of the ROG phone, Asus may choose to release updated versions once per year, also expanding the phone attachment portfolio.

I stepped into the wonderous IT&C world when I was around 7. I was instantly fascinated by computerized graphics, be them from games or 3D applications like 3D Max. I like to keep myself up to date with all the new technologies that get released at an ever increasing rate these days. I'm also an avid SciFi reader, an astrophysics aficionado and, as of late, a crypto geek.
