Asus ROG Phone II: Solid 5,800 mAh battery for your gaming smartphone


The upcoming Asus ROG Phone II gaming smartphone has already been handed over to the Chinese certification authority. It will be the first model to feature the brand new Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Plus. However, the now familiar specifications also sound promising for non-players. A battery with a proud 5,800 mAh (minimum) should be on board. The typical capacity is even 6,000 mAh.

This speaks for long battery life, which of course would also be something off the beaten track. In addition, the TENAA for the Asus ROG Phone II reveals a display with 6.59 inch diagonal and 120 Hz. The gaming smartphone measures 170.99 x 77.6 x 9.78 mm. Unfortunately, one can only draw limited further conclusions from the TENAA data, but the battery already sounds very promising.

The article picture, which the smartphone already shows, also comes from the TENAA. A camera recess is missing on the front, Asus apparently uses a more conventional design with a frame above and below the screen. Stereo speakers should also be on board, which would also be the standard for a gaming smartphone.

At the back you can see a dual camera with double flash, but no fingerprint scanner. The latter would have to either rest on the side or be integrated directly into the screen. Geekbench has also already announced that the Asus ROG Phone II will also be available with 12 GB RAM. That according to the benchmark Android 9.0 Pie serves as the operating system will probably come as no surprise to anyone.

According to the current state of affairs, the smartphone should also support fast charging with up to 30 watts – a sensible thing with the ample battery. How interesting the Asus ROG Phone II really is in the end will, of course, also strongly depend on the price. So let’s just wait for the official launch on 23 July 2019.
