The rest of the phone looks nearly identical to the original Asus ROG Phone, but with a 6.59-inch AMOLED screen instead of 6-inches, a 48MP camera instead of 12MP, a 3.5mm headphone jack, and two USB-C ports. Sensors on the phone include accelerometer, compass, proximity sensor, hall sensor, ambient light sensor, in-display fingerprint sensor, gyroscope, and an ultrasonic sensor.
ASUS is even using a 240Hz touch sampling rate for the best in touch response with a touch latency of just 49ms, something that you should see the results of instantly when it's in your hands.

You can also run either stock Android or Asus' ROG UI - just choose the one you want during setup. While the OLED panel's resolution is lower than Samsung's best on the Galaxy S10 Plus, the ROG Phone's 386 dpi should be plenty sharp.
Gaming smartphones are yet to find a more mainstream appeal, with them remaining niché offerings for the moment. The star of the show, at least as far as the ROG Phone 2 is concerned, is the Adreno 640 GPU, which is clocked at 672MHz and represents a decent step up in performance over the standard 855. In the back of the phone is a dual-lens 48MP and 13MP camera system. A USB Type-C port supports both Qualcomm's latest Quick Charge 4.0 spec for powering up and USB 3.1 Gen 2 for 10 Gbps connections to peripherals or PCs to transfer files. Based on my brief time with the phone, I felt the ROG Phone 2 can handle anything you throw at it easily. The handset is equipped with a 6,000mAh battery, which the company claims can provide over 7 hours of PUBG with a 60Hz screen rate.
According to the current state of affairs, the smartphone should also support fast charging with up to 30 watts - a sensible thing with the ample battery. Lastly, Asus is updating its range of accessories to include new versions of the dual-screen TwinView dock and the clip-on AeroActive Cooler.
ROG Phone 2 is a marked improvement over its predecessor, the original ROG Phone, giving fans a much-needed flagship despite seeing incredibly great phones from rivals. Chinese release details will be revealed tomorrow in partnership with Tencent, while the global model will launch in the first week of September.
