Although rumors started showering, suggesting that the device is expected to run on Qualcomm Snapdragon Octa core 845 SoC and also an option of having the 60Hz and 120Hz display which is similar to what is found in Razer Phone.

Moreover, some rumors also suggest that it can also debut with a 144Hz display, and that’s something which is still uncertain until there aren’t any updates from reliable sources. Apart from that, it won’t be quite surprising to encounter 8 GB of RAM in a Gaming Smartphone, which is also hoped.

Being said that it’s worth to note here that pricing is the most crucial part in terms of  Gaming Smartphones, and as it’s just a leak so, it’s is presumed that ASUS will be very contemplating with it’s pricing.

However, among these skeptical aforementioned details, one thing is surely confirmed that the device is going to get disclosed on June at Computex 2018.
