Snapdragon 855 Plus is the most powerful processor in the world right now.

Taiwanese technology company Asus has announced that its upcoming Asus ROG Phone II will be the world’s first gaming smartphone to be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 855 Plus mobile platform.

We should mention that as of now, Snapdragon 855 Plus is the most powerful processor in the world and since Asus ROG Phone II will be powered by it, it is bound to have an excellent performance. Considering that Asus has promised to get a better gaming performance with its ROG Phone II, this obviously is a plus for the device.

It is worth adding that some high-end offerings like Samsung Galaxy S10 series come with the Snapdragon 855 SoC, and the processor on Asus’ device is supposed to be better than that. As of now, not much is known about the upcoming Asus ROG Phone II, the company is expected to roll out a number of new gaming-oriented features in the device. The handset will succeed the ROG Phone that was launched in August last year.

The company has confirmed that it will be launching its new gaming-centric Asus ROG Phone II on July 23. We would get to know about the detailed specifications and features of the smartphone then. But since Snapdragon 855 SoC will be powering it, we can say that the smartphone will have a powerful performance.

According to Asus, the Kryo 485 Prime CPU in the Snapdragon 855 Plus runs at up to 2.96GHz and will offer a 4.2% improvement as compared to the 2.84GHz that was present on the Snapdragon 855 SoC. It has also been announced that the Adreno 640 GPU in Snapdragon 855 Plus is clocked 15% faster than 855 SoC.

Other than this, it has also been confirmed that Asus ROG Phone II will feature a 120Hz display and house a massive RAM. The only other smartphone to have a display with 120HN refresh rate is Razer Phone 2, which is also known for its gaming capabilities.

Asus ROG Phone 2 will be launched in two variants and will reportedly hold a starting price of CNY 4,399 (approximately Rs 44,400.


The predecessor of the smartphone – Asus ROG Phone – was launched in June 2018 globally and it made available in India in November 2018. The handset packs some powerful gaming-centric specifications and is powered by an overclocked version of the Snapdragon 845 SoC.

After being launched, Asus ROG Phone II will compete with the likes of Razer Phone 2 and Xiaomi’s Black Shark 2.
