Asus ROG Phone 2 has been announced by the company earlier this week. The predecessor of this phone the Asus ROG Phone was the first device which was titled as a dedicated gaming phone. ROG fanboys loved the external plug and play accessories.
This time Asus is said to be partnered with Tencent, China-based game designing company, for creating the all new Asus ROG Phone 2. It means we can expect this smartphone to perform better with Tencent produced games such as PUBG mobile and Free Fire.
Sources say that this ROG Phone 2 will be launched on 23rd of July this year in Beijing, China. Also, this phone is said to have a dedicated game customization software which is called as Tencent Game Customization. Now that Samsung started ditching the older devices by removing their game optimizer, this move by Asus shall be taken count as a wise one.
The company also announced that this Tencent game customization application is available only to the Android gamers
Asus ROG Phone 2 Specifications:
So far there aren’t complete information available about the internal specifications of this device but based leaks and confirmations, it is known that this device will come out with a display with 120Hz of screen refresh rate. Its predecessor had a 90Hz display, which brought complaints that it wasn’t working efficiently with third-party applications. Even OnePlus 7 Pro with 90 Hz display has this complaint where the screen refresh rate drops with certain apps.
But as far as ROG Phone 2, the company themselves has acknowledged that the drop of refresh rate won’t be a problem with the new device. And they have also said that the developers need not customize their apps to match with the refresh rate of the new ROG phone 2.
Apart from this, the device features 12GB RAM for long intensive gaming sessions. There aren’t enough details about the internal storage capacity. We think it is going to be 64 and 128 gigs as usual.
The liquid cooling solution has become a common feature these days. Every phone out there with liquid cooling feature has been known to perform just slightly better than a normal “non-liquid cooled” smartphone, but Asus guarantees that ROG phone 2 will definitely have a better thermal performance as they have included an improved liquid cooling system in it.
Added to that Asus has also included frequently requested “Chroma RGB lights” on the logo which will be in the rear. This feature was introduced to the smartphone industry by Razer on its Razer Phone 2.
The Asus ROG Phone 2 seems to pack the latest Snapdragon 855 chipset. It helps the phone to perform much better on gaming sessions than its predecessor. The combo of Snapdragon 855 and Adreno 640 GPU is known to be the best for all sorts of tasks right now, especially gaming.
This jam-packed mobile machine is absolutely going to be a rockstar on gamers hands, but how much do they cost?. It is expected to be priced at 635$/570€
This all new Asus ROG phone 2 will be showcased on the ChinaJoy 2019 event on August 1.
