Hardware giant Asus is back in the reckoning with the launch of Asus Phone 2 in India. The much-awaited gaming phone is now available exclusively on Flipkart. Without any delay, let's dive into the technical specifications of the phone and how it stacks up with other gaming smartphones.
The phone packs a 120Hz AMOLED display for all the PUBG and fps gaming enthusiasts. This not only delivers more frames per second but also gives you an extra edge over opponents. Wonder why? Because even small stuttering can be the difference between life and death in fast pace shooting games such as PUBG. With such an insanely responsive display you can shoot your opponents dead in microseconds (provided you have fast fingers).
Coming to the screen size, the display is an impressive 6.5 inches with a 1080p resolution.HDR 10 is natively supported.
As with the display, the performance is top-notch too. Powered by Snapdragon 855 the phone stacks up pretty well along with One Plus 7 Pro, although the presence of UFS 3.0 storage gives an extra advantage to ASUS Phone 2. With up to 12 GB Ram in the top variant and up to 512 GB storage, the phone is a monster in disguise.
The camera is supposed to be the last thing to mention or discuss in gaming phones like these. Don't feel disappointed as the phone packs a decent punch with its cameras too. The phone has a 48 MPx Sony IMX586 sensor alongside a 13 MPx wide-angle camera for all the gamers who love photography too.
Packing a mammoth 6000 mAh battery, one thing is assured; this phone can last hours and hours of insane gaming sessions. With great power comes great responsibility, with great battery, comes a top-notch cooling system too. The custom cooling works good enough to not make the screen or the body too hot to handle.
The design has not changed much over the previous iteration. The phone features the iconic backlight ROG gaming symbol at its back alongside fancy lines and cuts. That makes the phone look like what it is intended to look like, a gaming monster in your hand.
The phone is only available through Flipkart as mentioned earlier. The base variant starts from a very impressive INR 37999 ($550 approx) and competes directly with recently launched phones like One Plus 7 Pro, Xiaomi Redmi K20 Pro, and Asus 6z.
