Notable Features of Asus ROG Phone II

The Asus ROG Phone 2 has the new  Snapdragon 855 Plus chipset, and it’s the first phone to have it. It’s a processor that’s based on the Snapdragon 855, which we’ve seen in quite a few latest smartphones such as One Plus 7 and all, but tweaked to be better for gaming and virtual reality, with increased processor and graphics speeds.

Talking of high-speed: the handset’s display also has a 120Hz refresh rate, meaning the screen shows images twice as fast as the 60Hz of a normal smartphone. This makes it great for edge-of-your-seat action gameplay, and should give gamers a competitive edge.
