Asus has finally announced its flagship ROG Phone II smartphone, a successor of the ROG Phone launched previous year. Although the ROG Phone II is amazing in itself with a 120Hz OLED screen and top-notch specs, the company also announced an upgraded variant called ROG Phone II Ultimate Edition.
The ROG Phone II Ultimate Edition features faster LTE performance, 1TB built-in UFS 3.0 storage and a new design with matte black finishing. However, the hook here is the 1TB storage, which is double the maximum storage capacity of 512GB or 256GB that you otherwise get in several Android flagships.
In other things, the ROG Phone II Ultimate Edition variant is similar to the ROG Phone II. Inside it is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Plus and an Adreno 640 @ 675MHz which outperforms even the standard version.
However, the huge draw is the 6.59 inch 19.5:9 FHD+ screen with a resolution of 2340×1080 pixels. It can run optimised games for users at higher refresh rates. The company has also claimed that the smartphone’s 6,000mAh battery can supply power to run the phone through PUBG mobile sessions at 60Hz.
Meanwhile, the design of ROG Phone II is the opposite of the very PC and understated gamer. There is no guessing in what you can expect from its 48MP rear camera. The ROG Phone II is priced at €899 and will be available by end of this month while the ROG Phone II Ultimate Edition is priced at €1,199 and will be available starting October.
