Many are no doubt anticipating the launch of the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 and the Google Pixel 4, but it looks like both phones are going to have to take a backseat because ASUS has since launched their latest flagship smartphone, the ASUS ROG Phone 2, which based on its official specs will give Samsung and Google a run for their money.

The ROG Phone 2 will be the latest gaming smartphone from ASUS. While the first ROG Phone did pack some decent hardware, the ROG Phone 2 is certainly making waves as it is the first smartphone to be using Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 855+ chipset, a slightly upgraded version of the Snapdragon 855 with faster clock speeds.

Also, as previously promised, the handset will be coming with a 6.59-inch AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate. This puts it on par with handsets like the Razer Phone, while also beating out other branded handsets like the OnePlus 7 Pro. On top of the 120Hz refresh rate, the display will also support 10-bit HDR.

Other hardware features include the likes of front-facing stereo speakers with DTS:X Ultra support, and with the use of a larger chamber, it is said to offer up louder audio compared to its predecessor. There are also a couple of built-in vibration motors that will provide directional haptic feedback when playing games.

ASUS has also included a second-gen AeroActive Cooler II that gamers can use to help keep their phones cooled during prolonged gaming sessions. It will also come with a whopping 6,000mAh battery that should last you quite a while. There is also a dual camera setup on the back that combines 48MP + 13MP sensors, and a front-facing 24MP sensor. There is no word on pricing just yet, but it should be roughly around the same price as its predecessor.
