While it is not yet known what specs the phone will come packed with, it is expected to come with a better display and powerful processor. The phone recently appeared on the certification website, revealing that at least one variant of the device would come with a 30W fast charger.

The phone is most likely to come powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 octa-core flagship processor. It is also likely to inherit the 120Hz display that we saw on its predecessor. Further, the poster for the phone’s launch event has a Tencent logo which means that Asus and Tencent are working on the development and optimization of existing and new games from the developer.

Along with all this, it is said that the company could also launch a few accessories for the gaming smartphone. However, it remains to be seen if the old accessories designed for the first-gen ROG phone would also work on the upcoming Asus ROG Phone 2.
