In its 30th anniversary year, ASUS is at IFA with its 13-year-old gaming sub-brand Republic Of Gamers (ROG) to showcase several new products, including the ROG Phone II. Aiming for the three pillars of best-ever performance, battery life and immersive experience, the second evolution of this smartphone has already proved successful in China: in July it sold out the initial run within 73 seconds and took over 2.5 million pre-orders. When it releases in Europe in October, gamers can expect a landscape-aligned 6.59in screen with curved-edge strengthened glass, a 6000mAh battery, twin speakers with DTS:X Ultra processing, the elusive 3.5mm headphone jack and – crucially for the highest-possible performance – Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 855 Plus processor. It has desktop-class 12GB of LPDDR4X RAM to provide both high capacity and high bandwidth, as well as up to 512GB of UFS 3.0 storage for lightning-quick app installs and game loading. ROG have already secured deals with major publishers to ensure popular games are available on their mobile platform.
