ASUS ROG Phone 2 Platform:
Asus Rog Phone 2 runs on an Android Pie Version 9.0. The ROG UI is one of the best UI ever to land on the smartphone. This phone has some exceptional features in the CPU and GPU. It has an Octa-core (1×2.96 GHz Kryo 485 & 3×2.42 GHz Kryo 485 & 4×1.78 GHz Kryo 485) CPU. The GPU features the Adreno 640 (700 MHz), which integrates with the Qualcomm SDM855 Snapdragon 855+ (7 nm).

ASUS ROG Phone 2 Display Features:
Asus ROG Phone 2 claims the best display in the smartphone world. It has a smooth flow and flawless refresh rate of 120 Hz. The 240 Hz touchscreen response makes the phone a highly reactive device. The calibration and touch vibrations and sensors produce optimal output to enhance your experience.
It has an AMOLED screen that supports 16M color variation to produce vibrant images with super-details. The device has a 6.59 inches display and a 1080 x 2340 pixels resolution with 391 PPI density.
The device comes with the Corning Gorilla Glass 6 screen protection. The protection system does its job day in day out. You can use this phone for gaming as well as a regular phone with no worries.
HDR10 is one of the best features to land on smartphones, which helps produce high-quality graphics and not compromise the GPU and CPU functionality.
ASUS ROG Phone 2 Battery Life:
The device packs a 6000 mAh fast-charging battery, which is the highest mAh ever on a smartphone. The battery design is there to support the heavy-duty games that require high-power consumption.
You will be able to play games continuously for 5 to 6 hours on a single charge. If you use it as a regular business phone, then you will get the battery life for 48 hours.
The fast-charging 30W output charger comes with a quick charge 4.0 cable with type c connectors on the rear ends. The best part of the charging ports is you get two ports to charge the phone. One of them can be used to connect the desktop dock.
The desktop dock is an accessory-feature you can add if you are interested while buying a phone. This dock has multiple connection ports to various external devices like monitors, internets, etc.
ASUS ROG Phone 2 Camera Features:
It has a dual-camera system on the rear side, a 48 MP, and a 13 MP camera. These cameras shoot pretty-good images, but I should remind you this is not a camera-centric phone.
The Selfie camera has a 24 MP camera that performs with excellence. It is quite unbelievable that you can get high-picture-quality with this selfie camera.
The primary camera system on the back has gyro-EIS support for shooting videos up to 60 fps. The 120 and 240 fps do not have the gyro-EIs support.

The twin-view dock is a remarkable accessory you can have with this phone. It comes with a 5000 mAh battery where you can multi watch and perform tasks as you will. As mentioned above, the desktop dock and the twin-view dock are luxuries with an extra sum on the phone price.
You also get an external fan for cooling the device while playing games.
The coolest accessory you need to own if you want this phone is the Kunai handled Gamepad Module. It allows you to use it either as a remote controller or a gamepad module. You need to pay an extra AED 489 for this module.
