Asus ROG Phone successor to launch in third quarter

Asus to Launch Successor to ROG Gaming Smartphone in Q3 2019 Report

The aforementioned article also quoted the insiders familiar with the matter saying that the gaming smartphone models still can not generate significant profits for Asus, but the collaboration with Tencent might help the next-gen ROG Phone turn the tide. It was launched at an expensive price tag of $900 in the U.S., while the 512GB version goes for $1100. The device came equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, Qualcomm Adreno 630 GPU and a six-inch AMOLED display with a 90Hz refresh rate.

In December 2018, the company unveiled a rejuvenation plan, aiming to make a turnaround of its money-losing handset unit in three years by shifting focus to gaming and premium models.

Apart from this, there is no indication as to what the ROG Phone's specifications are.

But that doesn't seem to have deterred Asus.

Asus was one the manufactures to quickly jump on board the gaming phone hype with its ROG Phone and, according to a new report from DigiTimes, its sequel will arrive in the third quarter of this year. The report didn't offer any details about the upcoming device, nor did it provide an overview of Asus' strategy.

The ROG Phone that was launched previous year, was praised for its design and top of the line hardware. It also reveals that Asus is working on a partnership deal with Tencent which when finalized will enable the companies to promote it in China. The company is a mobile gaming juggernaut, so if it incentivizes people to buy Asus' next gaming smartphone, people will be likely to listen.

Tencent's hold over the gaming market could be particularly useful for the ROG Phone 2.
