It will be a noticeable upgrade over the existing ROG Phone that features 90Hz refresh rate for an OLED screen.
It may come out as a straight jolt at the recently released One Plus 7 Pro that seemed to defy all odds by being the first non-gaming smartphone with a 90Hz refresh rate display but yes, ASUS is setting a higher bar as far as display refresh rates are considered. After the segment was officially opened with the Razer Phone, Taiwanese electronics giant Asus came out with the ROG Phone back in 2018.

Until now we have seen just one smartphone that features a 120 refresh rate display panel, Razer Phone. On another note, the ROG Phone 2 isn't the first phone to sport a 120Hz refresh rate; that honour goes to the Razer Phone and Razer Phone 2.
The new ROG gaming monitor also complies with VESA Display HDR 1000 specification with 10-bit image processing and 1000 cd/m2 peak luminance, and a 90% coverage of the DCI-P3 gamut quantifies the display's colour output advantage.
Other specs for the device are under wraps for the time being, but we can hazard a guess for a Snapdragon 855 chipset and up to 12 GB of RAM on the phone. In a few months, these phones will be rivaled by ASUS's ROG Phone 2. To recall, Asus' ROG team has already confirmed that the successor to its ROG Phone would be released in July, and had also announced its partnership with Tencent Games for future devices and content. For optics, the phone is expected to feature a 48MP primary sensor and a Quad HD+ display. Since this is a gaming smartphone, it would be great if the company introduces a bigger capacity battery for longer gameplay, along with support for fast charging technology.
