ASUS ROG Phone 2 to get key screen tech upgrade


If ASUS stays on schedule, next month we should see the release of the ASUS ROG Phone 2. This will be the second phone in the company’s smartphone line that is built specifically for gamers. These types of phones are typically packed full of hardware to help keep games running fast and smooth, albeit for a hefy price tag. To help match some of the other players in this niche, in particular Razer, ASUS took to Weibo this week to announce an important screen technology they plan to include in the new ASUS ROG Phone 2.

According to the information provided, the new device will come equipped with a screen running at a 120Hz refresh rate. The first generation of these phones from ASUS ran at a 90Hz refresh rate. However, that did lag behind the Razer Phone and Razer Phone 2 which both shipped with 120Hz technology.

Most smartphones are equipped with screens running at a refresh rate of 60Hz. This is true even for flagship level phones like the Samsung Galaxy S10 or some of Apple’s offerings. For typical use, this is more than adequate to provide a crisp, responsive user experience.

However, for gamers who use their smartphones for fast-paced action titles like PUBG Mobile or Fortnite, a normal 60Hz refresh rate may leaving them feeling like the sharpness just isn’t there. The phone makers in this segment do tout the benefits of running a much higher refresh rate and while noticeable, some sources have suggested the gains are not as impressive as they are made to sound.

Any mobile gamers looking forward to seeing what ASUS is able to bring to market with the ASUS ROG Phone 2?
