Announced earlier this year at Computex, the ASUS ROG (Republic of Gamers) Phone turned more than its share of heads at its announcement. The phone brought top of the line mobile specifications with a sharp focus on delivering the best mobile gaming experience on the market. Up until now, the claims of better gaming performance have yet to be tested. However, after a long wait, we’re finally seeing the ROG Phone make its way into the market.
Here’s a little recap of what the ROG Phone will be packing. ASUS’s first ever gaming phone will be packing a specially calibrated version of Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845. Referred to as the speed-binned Snapdragon 845, the processor in the smartphone is tuned to 2.96GHz, a setting higher than any other Snapdragon 845 in the market.
