The ROG Phone launched last year came with a 90Hz display, but the ROG Phone 2 will boast a 120Hz screen. Details are scarce about this smartphone right now, but it's safe to say that it will have Snapdragon 855 SoC at the helm which will be paired with up to 12GB RAM. You can also expect it to come with a cooling system and a glowing Asus logo, like its predecessor.

More information about the ROG Phone 2 should follow soon.

Exactly! So. we'll need an equal or say better hardware (gpu + Cpu) to push a 120fps. Or else it'll remain as a gimmick.

Yes. Hz means Actions done per seconds. since we're talking about a screen. a refresh rate of 120 Hz would mean also 120 FPS (FRAMES per second. and since we're talking about things per second.) we're finding out that 120 FPS=120 Hz.
