Asus has confirmed via its ROG Weibo social media handle that it will be launching the second generation ROG phone soon, and that it8217;ll feature an industry-leading 120Hz display.
With the ROG Phone 2, Asus will build on the first model that was shown off little over 12 months ago at Computex 2018.
By having a 120Hz display, it will mean being able to play games at up to 120 frames per second, allowing for some very graphically intense titles, with super smooth animation.
One such title built by Tencent 8211; the company behind breakout hit, PUBG 8211; translates to 8220;Under the One Man8221;, but it promises that more popular games at 120Hz will be launching soon, and will take advantage of the fast refresh screen on the next Asus device.
There are other brands, of course, like Black Shark and Red Magic, but mainstream phones from the likes of OnePlus and Honor have also seen advancements made with the aim of boosting gaming performance.
Honor and Huawei optimised its internal GPU performance with a feature called GPU Turbo in 2018, with an aim to keep consistent high frame rates and efficient performance.
The one advantage the ROG phone has over OnePlus and Huawei 8211; at least among gamers 8211; is that it8217;s an established gaming brand, with a big following.
We don8217;t know when the phone is going to be officially unveiled, but it8217;s likely to come with the most powerful processor from Snapdragon when it does, as well as fast storage, plenty of RAM and advanced cooling.
