Oh man, did I love that ROG Phone. We know there will be a follow up, and although we don't know WHEN it will come for sure, we know that's going to be packing some heat. Something that even the Galaxy Note 10 - it may be the first phone to come with the new Snapdragon 855 Plus chip.
I say may because it's the first to 'announce' that it will have it, but whether or not some other manufacturer may beat it to the punch.
Even if they do, they still won't have some of those cool features that the ROG phone will have (man, I miss those shoulder triggers).
