Asus ROG Phone 2 specifications

The Asus ROG Phone 2 will come with a 6.59-inch AMOLED display with up to 120Hz refresh rate. The 10-bit HDR display also boasts 108 percent DCI-P3 color space. The panel operates at 2340 x 1080 pixels resolution. It is powered by Qualcomm’s flagship Snapdragon 855 Plus chipset, paired with Adreno 640 GPU. Asus could launch the handset in 12GB RAM and 512GB UFS 3.0 storage option.

For a complete gaming experience, the smartphone boasts front-facing stereo speakers with DTS:X Ultra support. The speakers come with larger chambers, and are reportedly twice as loud as the ones found on the ROG Phone. The handset also packs a dedicated 3.5mm audio jack. There are four microphones onboard, as well as specially placed antennas that streaming is seamless. The ROG Phone 2 will also come with a bunch of gaming accessories. These include the likes of the Kunai Gamepad, TwinView Dock II, AirTriggers, and more.

On the ROG Phone 2, Asus has heat control systems on the inside as well as outside. It comes with vents that direct the heat from the vapor chamber to the external vents. Since the heat is redirected outside the phone, the company includes the second generation AeroActive Cooler II in the box. This drops the temperature of the exterior by up to five degrees.
