You also get 4G LTE with Qualcomm's X24 LTE modem for up to 1.2Gbps in the standard version, all the usual connectivity, and 48MP + 13MP (125° ultrawide-angle) rear main camera, 24MP front one, 30W ROG HyperCharge direct charging via USB-C, 3.5mm headphone jack, dual front-facing stereo speakers with DTS:X Ultra, and more.

The Ultimate Edition, which was announced at the IFA 2019 show for Europe, will have a new color scheme with Matte Black shell, and 1TB of UFS 3.0 storage, as opposed to 512GB on the standard version. It also comes with a new antenna system for 4G/LTE which boosts download speeds to CAT 20, or 2Gbps download with 4x4 MIMO antenna system.
