BERLIN—Asus already announced the ROG Phone II back in July, but it’s making waves at IFA with a new Ultimate Edition that features faster modem performance and a whopping 1TB of internal storage.

As you can see, little has changed on the design front from last year’s original ROG Phone. The ROG Phone II features the same landscape-first design aesthetic, along with ultrasonic touch sensors and a side port for accessories (like the one pictured below) and charging while gaming. The main difference is the addition of a matte black color option for the Ultimate Edition.

Aside from color, the standard and Ultimate Edition models differ when it comes to storage, RAM, and modem. The standard edition features up to 512GB of onboard storage, 8GB of RAM, and a Cat 18 modem capable of reaching 4G LTE speeds of 1.2Gbps. The Ultimate Edition bumps things up with 1TB of storage, 12GB of RAM, and a Cat 20 modem for speeds up to 2Gbps.

Aside from that, the phones are pretty much the same. They’re each powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor clocked at 2.96GHz, along with an Adreno 640 GPU. They each feature a massive 6,000mAh battery with 30W quick charging when using the included adapter. And they each have 802.11ax Wi-Fi connectivity.

In addition to raw power, perhaps the most gamer-friendly aspect here is the 120Hz 6.59-inch AMOLED display, which allows for an industry-first 49ms touch latency. This should result in ultra-smooth gameplay.

Asus says the ROG Phone II will be available by the end of September for 899 Euros (approximately $986). The Ultimate Edition will be available exclusively online in October for 1,199 Euros (approximately $1,316). We’ll report back with more details and full reviews when we get to spend some time with these phones, so check back soon.
