Asus has brought some prototype 300Hz laptop gaming displays to IFA 2019. The company has built them into several models of its Strix and Zephyrus machines, and plans to commercially ship a 1080p 300Hz display in the Zephyrus S GX701 starting next month. The prototypes on hand in Berlin feature the ultra-fast-refresh-rate screen at both 15- and 17-inch sizes.

Asus’ ROG Phone II is already a flagship Android phone worth getting excited about because of its buttery-smooth 120Hz OLED display and top-of-the-line specs. But today the company announced an upgraded version, the ROG Phone II Ultimate Edition, that contains 1TB of storage and an exclusive matte black finish.
