Following that somewhat vague revelation, the Republic of Gamers (ROG) division inside Asus took to Weibo once again on Tuesday to disclose a more specific (and arguably more exciting) feature of its upcoming super-high-end handset.

The post includes a promo image announcing the game Under One Person from Tencent which is based on the webcomic of the same name. According to Asus, its upcoming smartphone will feature an increased refresh rate and also promised that future games will be further optimized for the 120Hz standard. The ROG Phone 2 will be third phone apart from Razer Phone and Razer Phone 2 to arrive with 120 Hz display.

Over the years, gaming phones have been the first to embrace displays with higher refresh rates, with the Razer Phone and Razer Phone 2 both including a 120hz LCD screen. Thanks to Tencent Games, Asus's next gaming smartphone will ship with exclusive gaming software optimization from the Chinese company.

Ghana's President Nana Akufo-Addo has vowed to take tough action to end the spate of abductions in the country. The ministry said an interrogation process is ongoing, which will determine whether more arrests will be made.

The other specifications of the ROG Phone 2 are now under the wraps. We might also see a refined cooling mechanism and likely the notorious overdesigned gaming phone look with sharp lines and LED accents colors.

However, it is being speculating that the Snapdragon 855 chipset will be present under the hood of the ROG Phone 2. ASUS has also mentioned in a Weibo post that the ROG Phone 2 will be launching in July.
