Asus ROG Phone 2 confirmed to feature 120Hz display

The front of the Asus ROG Phone

It was inevitable that ASUS would bring a second-generation of its ROG Phone to market, but the company has been rather tight-lipped about what features the device will offer - until now.

Over the years, gaming phones have been the first to embrace displays with higher refresh rates, with the Razer Phone and Razer Phone 2 both including a 120hz LCD screen. The firm has also promised that upcoming games will be enhanced to deliver 120 Hz experience. The only other smartphones that have managed to launch so far with a 120Hz display are the Razer Phone and the Razer Phone 2.

After announcing its partnership with Tencent Games for its upcoming gaming smartphone, Asus has confirmed the first major feature of the Asus ROG Phone 2. To recap, the current ROG Phone already sports a display with 90Hz refresh rate, which is already impressive in its own right.

Erdogan: Purchase of Russian S-400 air defence systems complete
North Atlantic Treaty Organisation member Turkey has signed up to buying 100 F-35s and has invested heavily in the F-35 programme. But Erdogan said Wednesday that his government would hold to account anyone who excluded Turkey from the F-35 program.

At this point, no other specs have been confirmed for the ROG Phone 2, although a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 SoC is nearly certainly to be onboard this time around. The new ROG phone will also feature exclusive gaming software optimization from Tencent Games for a more immersive experience.

There's still no information regarding the rest of the ROG Phone 2's hardware. There is a possibility that the smartphone may come with a robust heat dissipation system and it may sport a better design.

For now, all we know is that the Asus ROG Phone 2 will be released in July, but no word on pricing and availability has been given by Asus. Asus till now has refrained from providing an exact date for the launch and whether or not the device will come to India.
