ASUS had confirmed that its upcoming ROG Phone 2 will be using the slightly overclocked Snapdragon 855 Plus mobile platform. The company has finally unveiled its new gaming smartphone today. It does indeed come with the Snapdragon 855 Plus mobile platform from Qualcomm. The specs are on another level entirely and in a league of their own compared to any other Android device on the market today.


The ASUS ROG Phone 2 is powered by a Snapdragon 855 Plus chipset with an overclocked Adreno 640 GPU. It also features 12GB of LPDDR4X RAM and up to 512GB of UFS 3.0 storage. There’s a 6.59 inch 2340×1080 pixel resolution 120Hz/1ms AMOLED display with 10,000:1 contrast ratio.

The handset has a chunky 6,000mAh battery with 30W fast charging. There’s also a 48 megapixel + 13 megapixel camera system at the back and a 24 megapixel front camera. It runs Android 9 Pie with the ROG UI and features an in-display fingerprint sensor and two USB-C ports.

ASUS has added upgraded ultrasonic air trigger shoulder buttons and the new GameCool II 3D vapor-chamber cooling system. The 3.5mm headphone jack is also present. ASUS will be offering several accessories separately which include a new AeroActive fan cooling attachment and an updated TwinView Dock. ASUS hasn’t confirmed how much the ROG Phone 2 is going to cost and when it’s going to arrive. One can reasonably expect that it’s going to cost a pretty penny.
