The phone comes with unbelievable specs to run high-end mobile games without problems.
As for cooling, the phone has a "3D vapor-chamber cooling system" that Asus claims provides 16 times larger surface area for heat dissipation than your "standard" heat-pipe cooling system. If you're perhaps more of an Overwatch or Counter-Strike player, you may want to instead check out the ROG Strix Scar II instead. The front snapper is an 8-megapixel unit and the rear camera system uses 12-MP and 8-MP sensors together. The back of the phone has copper accents, cooling vents, and an RGB LED-illuminated ROG logo.
The phone's AMOLED, 2,160x1,080 display has HDR support as well as a 90Hz refresh rate and 1ms response rate. The one on the bottom is USB 2.0 and supports 20W fast charging, while the one on the side is USB 3.1 Gen 1, but only supports 15W fast charging.

Johnny Depp sparks concern from fans after gaunt pictures
After a few photos of Johnny Depp looking thin appeared on social media sites, his fans have gotten anxious about his health. In 2017 Depp also faced divorce proceedings from actress Amber Heard after she accused him of physical abuse.
There's more. The phone has three ultrasonic "AirTrigger" touch sensors - two are created to be left and right triggers at the top of display for gaming in landscape mode, and a third one designed for portrait-mode use. That doesn't quite match the Razer Phone's insane 120Hz, but it's still a huge improvement over the standard 60Hz and the quality of OLED should definitely make up for it. The docks also seem to be separate purchases, but at least the AeroActive Cooler going to come in the box. It's mated to 8GB LPDDR4 RAM with onboard storage options of 128GB or 512GB. Asus claims that on full charge, the battery can offer up to 7 hours of Wi-Fi gaming.
A price was not listed for the USB Type-C connected ROG Delta headphones. The ROG Phone runs on Android 8.1 Oreo with Asus ZEN UI on top.
To expand its gaming possibilities, ASUS has also introduced an optional TwinView Dock which turns the phone into a dual-screen console. ROG Ryujin series also features Aura RGB lighting, along with reinforced sleeved tubing for better durability. That's not all, there's also two side controllers called the Gamevice that clip on either side of the device, and you can also get a variety of docks - including a desktop mounted one for full-scale gaming.
Asus says the combination of the Intel 8th generation Core i7 processors, Nvidia GTX 1070 graphics and up to 32GB of RAM means you'll love the gaming performance on this laptop.
All of this makes the ROG Phone quite heavy at 200g, but that's understandable for a device that puts performance and cooling above everything else. However, when under really extensive loads - such as Pokemon GO, the most demanding game known to man - Asus has a new accessory to deal with excess heat. The company had little to say about the ROG Phone's cameras, a big change from the barrage of recent Android flagships that have been touting enhanced camera features as a way to stand out from the pack.
