Asus is planning to launch its next iteration of the ROG gaming phone, and it has been confirmed that the device will be launching soon.
But till now, there wasn’t any solid proof of what it would have or what it will come with. Now, it has been confirmed that the Asus ROG Phone 2 will have a 120Hz refresh rate display.
The confirmation comes from a Weibo poster of a Chinese fighting game which will be partnering with the Taiwanese electronics maker.
The game is named Under the One Man and it is based on a comic book franchise of the same name, it is published by Tencent Games with which Asus was already in a confirmed partnership.
The Asus ROG Phone 2 will be the successor to the Asus ROG Phone which is one of the best gaming smartphones of today. The company has already confirmed that the Asus ROG Phone 2 will be released in July of 2019.
Talking about the Weibo post, the poster states that the Asus ROG Phone 2 will come with a 120Hz display which according to the company is ideal for the game Under the One Man.
The poster also states that the 120Hz display is suitable for a fighting game as it will be giving the players a “more delicate and refreshing fighting experience’.
The poster further mentions that “more popular 120Hz games” will be coming soon.
This could mean that collaboration between Tencent Games and Asus could see more games being released for the Asus ROG Phone 2 by the company.
It should be noted that the newly launched OnePlus 7 Pro comes with only a 90Hz display while the Razer Phone 2 which was launched last year had a 120Hz display.
But how will Asus ROG Phone 2 go up against other flagship smartphones will be seen once it launches next month? Xiaomi’s Black Shark 2 recently was launched in India and with it, the gaming smartphone industry in the country is slowly becoming more mainstream.
The Asus ROG Phone was launched back in November in India for a price of Rs 69,999.
This Asus ROG Phone comes with ROG UI which is a unique UI developed especially for the Asus ROG Phone.
The Asus ROG Phone is already a flagship smartphone with many top-class specifications and the next iteration of the device will pack much better performance than its predecessor.
This Asus ROG Phone 2 is expected to be powered by a Snapdragon 855 SoC and most probably will over-clock the CPU to offer better performance.
But it still remains to be seen how much Asus overclocks the CPU of Asus ROG Phone 2 which is already the top-end SoC from Qualcomm.
