Asus ROG Phone 2 laughs at OnePlus 7 Pro, will have higher refresh rate

The Razer Phone and Razer Phone 2 are the current refresh
rate champions, offering a 120Hz refresh rate for smooth
performance and touch input. We’ve also seen the likes of the
Asus ROG Phone and OnePlus 7 Pro offer 90Hz refresh rates,
but it looks like Asus is taking the fight to Razer.

According to a machine-translated version of a post on the

Asus ROG Weibo page
(h/t:
GSMArena
), the Asus ROG Phone 2 will sport a 120Hz refresh
rate. The translated post also notes that video game “Under The
One Man” will support the new refresh rate, with more compatible
titles to be announced later.

The original ROG Phone offered a 90Hz refresh rate via a full HD
OLED screen, but it’s unclear whether the new phone will use OLED
or LCD technology to deliver 120Hz support. Razer’s smartphones
are the only Android phones on the market to offer 120Hz
capabilities, and they use Sharp IGZO LCD screens.

We don’t know anything else about the Asus ROG Phone 2, but
we’d expect a Snapdragon 855 chipset, at least 8GB of RAM, 128GB
of storage, and a large battery. The original device also offered
three ultrasonic triggers for gaming, a variety of gaming
peripherals, and a side-mounted port for said accessories.
