In the era where competitive professional gaming is no longer confined to consoles and the PC, smartphone makers have continuously attempted to push the boundaries of mobile device – every piece of hardware, every millisecond, every frame, may mean victory or defeat.
ASUS positions ROG Phone 2 as your ultimate Android-powered mobile gaming device
As such, ASUS, a company with a well-renowned portfolio in gaming, decided to create the ultimate smartphone for the job, one that will boast the highest of numbers, and deliver nothing but the best-in-class performance – the ROG Phone 2.
With the phone’s pre-order details announced ahead, the game-changer has finally made its official debut in the Philippines, ready to be harnessed by those who are worthy of wielding its capabilities.
ROG Phone 2 boasts a 6.59-inch AMOLED display with FHD+ resolution, 120Hz refresh rate, 1ms response time, and 240Hz touch sampling rate, all for the smoothest and most fluid visuals combined with the most immediate input response, allowing you to quickly react to any crucial moment in the game.
ASUS ROG Phone 2 is the world’s first smartphone with Snapdragon 855+
It’s also the world’s first smartphone to be powered by the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 855+, backed by 12GB of LPDDR4X Ram, and up to 512GB of UFS 3.0 storage. Allowing the phone to sustain its peak performance are three layers of cooling – 3D Vapor Chamber, Heat Sink + Internal and External Vents, and the optional AeroActive Cooler II.
Imaging-wise, there’s a 48MP main sensor at the back, coupled with a 13MP Wide-Angle snapper. A 24MP sensor is in charge of handling the selfie work.
ROG Phone 2 runs on on ROG’s custom UI, but if you prefer a more standard Android layout, there’s an option for that too. It packs a 6,000mAh battery with support for QC 3.0 and PD 3.0.
