Asus ROG Phone with Android 9 Pie spotted on Geekbench

This suggests that the phone might soon be updated to the latest version of Android 

The exact date of the rollout is not yet known

It looks like the Asus’ gaming smartphone, the ROG Phone, will soon be updated to Android 9 Pie. A version of the phone running on the new operating system was spotted on Geekbench, which suggests that the update might be rolled out soon. However, the exact date as to when the update would be rolled out is not yet known.

To recall, Asus launched the ROG Phone at Computex last year, and brought it to Indian shores in late November. The gaming centric smartphone was designed to compete with the likes of the Xiomi Black Shark and the Razer Phone, both of which are yet to come to India. The ROG Phone takes a lot of design cures from gaming devices and as such, sports angular designs. It also features an Aura-illuminated ROG logo at the back with RGB lighting. 

In terms of specifications. The Asus ROG Phone features a 6-inch AMOLED HDR display with a 90Hz refresh rate. It is powered by an overclocked 2.96GHz “speed binned” Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC with 8GB of RAM. In order to keep things cool, the phone comes with a 3D vapour-chamber cooling system. The device offers 512GB of internal storage and packs a 4000mAh battery with Asus HyperCharge direct-charge technology.

Other features of the phone include front facing stereo speakers, as well as ‘Air Triggers’ which are aimed an enhancing the gaming experience for users. Asus also has some accessories that can be hooked up to the phone to enable enhanced functionality. The phone sports side-mounted ports that can be used to link it with the optional TwinView Dock for dual-screen handheld mode, the Mobile Desktop Dock for desktop-style gaming, and the Gamevice controller with WiGig Dock. The TwinView Dock provides an additional display for the device, along with two more speakers. It has a 6000mAh battery and a cooling fan to keep the temperature low.
