If you love mobile gaming then I’m pretty sure that you’ll love this news as ASUS has just launched their newest gaming smartphone — the ASUS ROG Phone II. It’s the sucessor of last year’s ROG Phone and this time, we got a more powerful hardware and better specifications inside along with the accessories that will blow you away.
First, the ASUS ROG Phone II is the first smartphone to pack the Snapdragon 855 Plus processor which is a boosted Snapdragon 855 that performs better in CPU and GPU and then there’s the upgraded 120Hz display which will give you a smoother gaming experience on the smartphone and oh, the smartphone doesn’t have a notch too so it has bezel which allows you to plug in some accessories.
For gamers, I’m pretty sure that you’ll be excited to know that the ASUS ROG Phone II will come with a 6000mAh battery that will last long even if you love playing games on your smarrphone and then there’s the 30W ROG HyperCharge for non-stop gaming.
The design of the ASUS ROG Phone II is very similar to the precessor but we now have an in-display fingerprint scanner and also a side USB-C port for landscape use.
The ASUS ROG Phone II also features a dual surrounding vibration with front-facing stereo speakers and a lot of modular accessories. Speaking of accessories, the ASUS ROG Phone II will come with new accessories.
There’s the ROG Aero Case which will protect your smartphone and then there’s the all-new Aero Active Cooler II which will make sure that the ROG Phone II is running cool and still be able to work with a gamepad. The ASUS ROG Kunai Gamepad is their own gamepad that is made for the phone and this will make your smartphone work like a Nintendo Switch.
lastly, there’s the TwinView Dock II which will give you a dual display but unlike the predecessor, the TwinView Dock II will allow you to use the ROG Kunai Gamepad alongside with it.
There’s no pricing for the ASUS ROG Phone II yet but expect that the smartphone will launch in the Philippines too soon.
