After a long wait, ASUS Malaysia has finally brought in their successor to the original gaming smartphone that they unveiled last year – the ROG Phone II, which is another phone that has gotten attention as much as ROG Phone. With that said, let’s see what new about the ROG Phone II
ASUS ROG Phone II
The ROG Phone II is far more bigger than the previous iteration. On the front, it boasts a 6.59” FHD+ AMOLED Display covered with a Corning Gorilla Glass 6. To make things interesting the display has a peak brightness of 600nits and has support for DCI-P3 with Delta E<1. Not to forget the fact that the display now supports up to a whopping 120Hz – making the whole experience buttery smooth. To go with the superior display, the phone features a Dual Stereo front-facing speaker with support for DTS:X Ultra – giving it an amazing sound quality during gaming sessions or even while watching movies.
What really makes the ROG Phone II superior is the specification because it’s a gaming phone. The phone packs the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 855+ coupled with 12GB of RAM and comes in two different storage configuration – either a 512GB or a 1TB non-expandable storage. That’s a lot by the way. In order to offer better performance, the phone packs a better and much improved Graphite Cooling System and includes the AeroActive Cooler which we have seen in the previous ROG Phone.
It gets interesting from here. The ROG Phone II packs a whopping 6000mAh battery which supports 30W Fast Charging which is included inside the box with a C-C Cable instead. On the back, the phone houses a dual camera setup: a primary 48MP and a Secondary 13MP Ultrawide camera. On the front, the phone houses a 24MP camera for decent selfie shoots.
ROG Phone II Accessories
Other than the phone itself, ASUS ROG Phone II comes with few accessories that will be sold separately – such as the ROG Kunai Gamepad, the new ROG TwinView Dock, ROG Case, ROG Pouch to store it away and the accessories which we have seen previously like the WiGig Dock and the Desktop Dock as well.
The ROG Phone II comes in two different finishes and it also indicates the different storage configuration as well. The 512GB variant of the ROG Phone II will come in Black Glare whereas the 1TB Variant will come in a Matte Black Finish. It will be priced at RM 3499 for the 512GB and RM 4499 for the 1TB variant. The 1TB variant of the ROG Phone II will be made available later in November.
