Asus announces the ROG Phone II

It’s been a year since Asus announced their first gaming phone with the ROG Phone. Now the company is back for round two with the ROG Phone II.

The design of the ROG Phone II hasn’t changed all that much, there is still metal and glass and uses Corning Gorilla Glass 6.

The ROG Phone II has a 6.59-inch display with a 19.5:9 aspect ratio and 120Hz refresh rate. The back of the device features the ROG logo that has RGB backlighting.

Powering this beast of a phone is the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Plus processor with up to 12GB of RAM. There’s also 128 or 512GB of internal storage.

The phone comes with a USB-C port and headphone jack on the bottom and another USB-C port on the side of the phone for accessory support.

There’s also a 6,000 mAh battery that should easily last more than a day or so and the dual-cameras on the back are 48-megapixels and 13-megapixels.

The device also comes with dual front-facing speakers and in the box is the ROG AeroActive Cooler II that helps cool the ROG Phone II when gaming.

The ROG Phone II will be running Android 9 Pie with Asus’ ROG UI which comes with a lot more gamer-centric look and feel.

Asus has confirmed that pre-orders for the ROG Phone II in Canada will be in late August but Canadian pricing and the actual release date is still TBD.

The Asus ROG Phone II should be available in the coming months, possibly October since that’s when the first ROG Phone released.
