As for specifications, the ASUS ROG features a 6 inch OLED display with a resolution of FHD+ (2160 x 1080 pixels, an aspect ratio of 18:9,HDR support and a pixel density of 402 ppi. The display support multi-touch upto 10 fingers, 1ms response time and has a refresh rate of 90Hz making it perfect for gaming. Under the hood, the smartphone is powered by the Qualcomm’s top of the line Snapdragon 845 chipset clocked at 2.95 GHz and paired with a Adreno 630 GPU. It is coupled with 8GB RAM and 512GB internal storage.
In the optics department, the device sports a dual rear camera setup of a 12MP primary camera with f/1.8 aperture and an 8MP secondary camera with 4 axis OIS, dual pixel PDAF and LED flash. The front offers an 8MP camera with f/2.0 aperture for selfies.
The handset runs on ROG Gaming UI based on Android 8.1 Oreo and is backed by a non removable 4,000 mAh battery which gives 7 hours of gameplay on Wi-Fi and charges from 0%-60% in just 33 minutes. There is a fingerprint sensor in the rear for security purpose.

However, the specification alone doesn’t define the gaming tag of the smartphone. ASUS has included support for supplementary gaming specific-features like touch sensitive edges that can be individually mapped to various actions even outside games, additional Type-C port, AeroActive Cooler that blows off air from the back panel of the phone improving heat dissipation, GameCool vapour based cooling technology, dual front firing stereo speakers and more.
