In the gaming world, displays with higher refresh rates are totally welcomed. Last year Asus ROG Phone came with a 90Hz display, so it was expected that the Asus ROG Phone 2 will have a 120Hz unit. This also beats out the OnePlus 7 Pro 90Hz display and matches the Razer Phone 2 refresh rate.
Gaming fans will no doubt be happy, as often the bezel-less design of modern flagships does mean getting a good grip of the edges of a phone can be difficult without obscuring on-screen controls. Qualcomm recently announced a gaming-centric Snapdragon 855 Plus chipset with better GPU performance and slightly better clock speeds than the original Snapdragon 855. Now, Asus is also set to become the first smartphone manufacturer to adopt the new Snapdragon SoC.
