With a bevy of mobile games flooding the app stores as of late, like PUBG and Pokémon GO, ASUS has taken it upon itself to develop one of the best performing gaming phones in the current market – The ROG Phone II, following up its preceding ASUS ROG model.

Among all the new features the phone offers, one distinct highlight is its Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Plus Mobile processor, a big step up from common CPUs in most smartphones. Running steadily between a range of 2.84GHz to 2.96GHz, its Kryo 485 CPU enables a smoother gaming experience.

The Qualcomm Adreno 640 has also been added, along with 12GB of RAM and a choice between 128GB or 512GB of flash storage. To deal with the intense processing power, the phone comes with a vapor chamber and a cooler that latches perfectly onto the phone. As a finishing note, the display reaches just above six and a half inches long with an aspect ratio of 19.5:9. Other specs like the finger scanner, 48MP rear camera and 24MP front camera, DTS:X speakers and a noise-canceling microphone round up the features of the new smartphone.

Though no official dates have been confirmed, keep it locked here for the latest updates on the official release of the upcoming ASUS ROG Phone II.

Elsewhere, Microsoft is set to invest $1B USD in Elon Musk’s OpenAI.
