ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) introduces the ROG Phone 2, the exciting successor to the game-changing ROG Phone. 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 world's first announced 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.

ROG Phone 2 also features the world's first 120Hz/1ms AMOLED 10-bit HDR 6.59-inch display, which offers a world-beating Delta-E <1 color accuracy and unrivaled touch response for a truly extraordinary visual experience.

Non-stop marathon gaming is provided by the monster 6000mAh battery and the innovative side-charging design, combined with a 30W ROG HyperCharge power adapter for safe, ultrafast direct charging.

ROG Phone 2 is designed from the ground up for fully immersive gaming, with its unique landscape-oriented design incorporating upgraded AirTrigger 2 ultrasonic sensors, Dual Surrounding Vibration technology, and powerful front-facing stereo speakers. Brand-new accessories include the TwinView Dock 2 for immersive dual-screen gaming, and the multi-configuration ROG Kunai Gamepad for the ultimate console-like gaming experience.


Introducing the ROG Phone 2 Ultimate Edition
The new ROG Phone 2 Ultimate Edition features an exclusive new color theme and upgraded specifications. The understated Matte Black colorway gives the phone a unique personality, with the distinctive patterning emblazoned on the back cover adding emphasis. The hardware specification of the Ultimate Edition has been upgraded to a massive 1TB UFS 3.0 ROM, and users can also enjoy faster Cat 20 4G LTE download speeds of up to 2Gbps. This upgraded version with its exclusive design and powerful storage performance offers owners the finest integration of design and technology.

Dominating performance
ROG Phone 2 delivers dominating performance in every arena, with no compromises. It's the world's first gaming smartphone to be powered by the new Snapdragon 855 Plus Mobile Platform, with the Qualcomm Kryo 485 CPU clocked at up to 2.96GHz and teamed with 12GB RAM for effortless gaming power. The special Adreno 640 GPU — 15% faster[i] than the current Snapdragon 855 — offers faster display throughput and greater power efficiency, making ROG Phone 2 a graphics powerhouse that's unfazed by today's demanding visuals. The Snapdragon 855 Plus comes fully integrated with Qualcomm Snapdragon Elite Gaming, which provides gamers with a full arsenal of competitive features that are optimized for gaming.

To ensure maximum sustained performance, the second-generation GameCool 2 cooling system in ROG Phone 2 has a newly designed 3D vapor chamber that’s even more effective at removing heat from the phone. There’s also a new AeroActive Cooler 2 featuring redesigned fan blades that deliver even more airflow into the ROG Aerodynamic System, and which can fit over the bundled ROG Phone Aero Case. The AeroActive Cooler 2 is now whisper-quiet, with a 24dBA noise level — 4X quieter than the original design.

And it doesn’t end there: the high-capacity 512GB UFS 3.0 ROM provides ultrafast data storage, and connectivity is supercharged with 4G LTE Cat 18 download speeds of up to 1.2Gbps[ii], the fully integrated Wi-Fi and Bluetooth subsystem delivers blazing-fast pre-Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) capabilities, and WiGig using 60 GHz Wi-Fi delivers wireless speeds up to 4.6Gbps[iii]. Gamers craving mind-blowing performance need look no further than ROG Phone 2.

Supercharged visuals
ROG Phone 2 takes gaming visuals to the next level with the world’s first 120Hz/1ms AMOLED 10-bit HDR display, a truly magnificent 6.59-inch display that delivers unbelievably fluid, blur-free gaming and entertainment. Its world-beating color accuracy — with a Delta-E of less than 1 — ensures games look just like the developer intended, and the world-first 49ms touch latency delivers instant responsiveness for a competitive edge. To protect this state-of-the-art display, it’s covered with super-tough Corning Gorilla Glass 6.

Non-stop stamina
The monster 6000mAh battery in ROG Phone 2 provides non-stop gaming power anywhere. ROG HyperCharge direct-charging technology — which takes the charging circuitry out of the phone and puts it in the special 30W charger — gives ROG Phone 2 shorter, safer charge times (up to 66% charged in just 58 minutes). Support for PD charging means gamers can easily charge their phone with any USB Type-C (USB-C) charger, or conveniently charge other devices with their ROG Phone 2.

Fully immersive gaming
ROG Phone 2 is engineered for victory from the ground up, with its pioneering landscape-oriented ergonomic design. Uprated AirTrigger 2 technology provides extra-precise ultrasonic touch controls with a vibration latency of just 20ms. They now also support both tap and slide motions — with fine-tuned feedback for a console-like button feel, and the Dual Surrounding Vibration technology creates a powerful 3D force-feedback experience.
The unique side-mounted USB-C charging port and 3.5mm audio jack let users keep their phone topped up and their headphones plugged in without cramping their style during marathon sessions. And it doesn't end there: the dual front-facing speakers are positioned at top and bottom of the phone for perfect stereo imaging in landscape mode, while the groundbreaking multi-antenna Wi-Fi is designed to deliver maximum landscape-mode performance.

The all-new TwinView Dock 2 offers a genuine dual-screen gaming experience, with a 6.59-inch AMOLED FHD+ (2340 x 1080) auxiliary screen that's great for split-screen live-streaming, extended game display or group communication. This accessory is now lighter and better balanced, featuring a new turbo-fan cooling system and a high-capacity 5000mAh extended battery pack. The ROG Kunai Gamepad can also be used to add full physical controls and create a complete self-contained dual-screen gaming system.

For the ultimate gaming experience, ROG Phone 2 can be expanded with a unique range of accessories. The existing ROG WiGig Display Dock Plus and Mobile Desktop Dock are both supported, and there's a new modular ROG Kunai Gamepad that provides physical console-like gamepad controls. The ROG Kunai Gamepad consists of three components — the ROG Kunai Bumper, ROG Kunai Controllers and ROG Kunai Holder.

The two-part Kunai Controllers can be attached to the Kunai Holder to create a standalone gamepad, or combined with the Kunai Bumper to add physical gamepad controls to ROG Phone 2 itself. ROG Phone 2 also supports Qualcomm aptX, aptX HD and aptX Adaptive for low-latency high-quality audio over Bluetooth connections.
