ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) today unveiled it’s famed ROG Phone 2, the much anticipated successor to the first ROG Phone. The phone had already launched in China about a month or so ago so you can imagine how long the month long wait was for our local fans of the phone.
The ROG Phone 2 builds on the innovative gamer-centric design of the first-generation ROG Phone, and takes performance to an epic new level with the implementation of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Plus Mobile Platform, which is clocked at up to 2.96GHz. Graphics are provided by the new Qualcomm Adreno 640 GPU for pro-level gaming experiences, and the uprated GameCool 2 3D vapor-chamber cooling system sustains full-speed performance for even longer.
On top of that, the device also features the world’s first 120Hz/1ms AMOLED 10-bit HDR 6.59-inch display, which offers a world-beating Delta-E color accuracy and unrivaled touch response for a truly extraordinary visual experience. The phone also comes with an unbelievable 6000mAh battery, which in all honesty is unheard of in flagships of today, to allow for marathon gaming.
Of course, the phone, which is probably the most specced out phone in the market right now also got its local price today, and it starts at RM3499 for the 12GB+512GB variant and RM4499 for the 12GB+1TB variant.
