It will be offered with 12 GB RAM and 512 GB storage, but its price is going to be €899 (that’s the equivalent of $990).
The new ROG Phone II is a product to be enthusiastic about. It is officially the first smartphone with Snapdragon 855+ chipset and comes with 120 Hz 10-bit HDR screen.
Asus equipped the device with a 6.59” AMOLED, now comes with an under-display fingerprint scanner, and according to the company, it exceeds the bounds of the DCI-P3 color space (108%) and boasts perfect color accuracy.
The screen is accompanied by two DTS:X Ultra speakers with larger chambers for a mightier sound, while the back keeps the original design of the first ROG Phone. This device sports a 48 MP main camera and a 13 MP wide-angle secondary shooter (a setup also seen in the Zenfone 6).
The device can be pre-ordered on Asus’ website starting today, but shipping and availability with third-party retailers is beginning on September 20.
There is also the ROG Phone II Ultimate Edition with double the storage (that’s a total of 1 TB) and Cat.20 capabilities of the chipset. It will be sold right in time for the holiday season at €1,199.
