ROG Phone II is launching in Malaysia on 16 October

The first-generation ROG Phone was launched nearly a year ago, defining how a gaming phone should look and feel like while also packing the internals to match.

Despite being a mobile powerhouse, the best part of this phone is its "display".

Asus' gaming brand, ROG, has finally dropped a Malaysian launch date for the ROG Phone II. The new ROG Phone 2 will also get an in-display fingerprint scanner. On the camera front, the handset offers a 13MP sensor at the front for selfies.

Asus has designed the ROG Phone 2 to provide you an optimal and comfortable in-hand feel, especially while gaming, says the Taiwanese giant. And, while that may hardly seem impressive, the display also gets a maximum refresh rate of 120Hz, never before seen on smartphones. It is a 10-bit panel with HDR support and boasts a 500,000:1 contrast ratio.

ROG Phone 2 was the first to be released with the new overclocked Snapdragon 855 Plus chipset in tow. It is paired with 8GB/12GB RAM and 128GB/512GB storage. The phone runs on Android 9 Pie with a custom skin on top. The latter gives the phone the true look and feel of a gaming phone. The famous Aura logo is also on the back and is customisable too.

Asus ROG Phone 2 was launched in the China market earlier this year in July.

In terms of camera, ROG Phone 2 features a dual rear camera setup with 48 MP and a 13 MP sensors. There's also a 24MP/4C selfie camera in tow and it is such a tiny module that it fits on the same side as the rear cameras. On the front, the Asus 6z gets a 24MP front shooter. The phone is powered by a 6,000mAh battery with 30W fast charging support. Moreover, the ROG Phone 2 also features UFS 3.0 storage, which delivers better read/write speeds than UFS 2.1. The retail package of this variant will include the 30W ROG Charger, AeroActive Cooler, and the Aero Case. Asus is now gunning for the upcoming OnePlus 7T, which debuts on September 26, with such an attractive and salivating price tag. The smartphone will be launched at an event scheduled for 12:30pm in New Delhi.

As for the launch offers, Flipkart will offer 10 percent instant discount on purchases made using ICICI bank credit cards, and an equivalent discount for orders using Axis bank credit and debit cards.
