ASUS introduced a revamped version of its top-of-the-range ROG smartphone for gamers at IFA today. The ASUS ROG Phone II Ultimate Edition got a new color scheme, more storage space, and CAT 20 4G/LTE.

Launched in July, the ASUS ROG Phone II based on Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 855 Plus and equipped with a 6.59-inch 120 Hz OLED display is one of the most powerful handset for gamers available today. Just like with fast cars, it is always possible to make things better and release a special edition for those who want something exclusive.

The ASUS ROG Phone II Ultimate comes in a Matte Black chassis to emphasize its premium nature and is equipped with a 1 TB of UFS 3.0 storage subsystem to store more games and other content locally. Furthermore, the Ultimate Edition also supports CAT 20 4G/LTE speeds of up to 20 Gbps (as it has 4x4 antennae) for ultra-fast downloads.

As it usually happens with ultra-premium products, the ROG Phone II Ultimate Edition will be available exclusively from ASUS’ online store. In Europe, the device will be available in October for €1,199.

A 512GB storage version, without the 2 Gbps LTE, will start at 899 Euro and will be on sale from September 20th.

    I think the Chinese special edition is a better offering as it cuts some RAM and ROM but not the display. Reply

    I agree
    Who needs 12gb ram and 512-,1tb storage. 128 is plenty

    I bought mine on eBay. There are two sellers I think roughly $820 with free shipping too 10 days to arrive. Reply

    Interesting phone, but the cooling fan looks like it just directs air at the back of the phone where there is not any inlet or outlet for said moving air to circulate within the handset. Is there any word on interior design that takes advantage of the fan by putting passive cooling close to the rear exterior shell or is this just going to push air against the panel that's covering something like the battery to no avail?

    Even just blowing air at the back can help to effectively cool the phone down. I know because I made a similar thing for my phone with a small PC case fan converted to USB power. Reply
