The 120Hz display would mean better and smooth display performance, which is a crucial element needed in a gaming phone. Multiple new manufacturers have joined the fray with their own gaming phones, and it seems like ASUS wants to follow suit, with the upcoming ASUS ROG Phone 2. The next-gen ROG device will be more special with the 120Hz screen which is already a feature of the Razer Phone and the Sony Xperia XZ Premium albeit hidden. Asus ROG has also promised that more future games will also be optimized for the 120Hz standard. The other two were the Razer Phone and Razer Phone 2.

Further, the phone could come powered by the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 octa-core 7nm processor out-of-the-box, just like most of the flagship smartphones launched this year so far.
