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).
