Asus ROG Phone 2 leaks on Weibo, showcases 120Hz refresh rate

Images of the Asus ROG Phone 2 have surfaced showcasing that the rumoured phone likely features up to a 120Hz refresh rate. The images first appeared on Weibo, a China-based microblogging site.

It appears users will be able to select between a 60Hz refresh rate, a 90Hz refresh rate and a 120Hz refresh rate. A higher refresh rate on display results in games and movies will playing more smoothly.

The phone will sport top and bottom bezels and feature front-firing speakers if these images are accurate.

Further, the Asus ROG Phone 2 doesn’t feature a bezel-less design, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing for gamers. Minimal bezels offer a better grip and less accidental touches.

9to5Google speculates that the ROG Phone 2 will be the first handset to feature the recently announced Snapdragon 855 Plus chipset. The enhanced chipset features an improved CPU and GPU that should, in theory, result in enhanced gaming performance.

Asus will reportedly launch the ROG Phone 2 on July 23rd.
