ASUS ROG gaming phone announced with overclocked SD845, 3D vapor-chamber cooling, and ultrasonic buttons

Android gaming phones might not appeal to many people, but they must be selling well enough as companies continue to make them.

The ROG Phone boasts an exclusive Snapdragon 845 SoC with a higher clock speed (2.96GHz, Qualcomm's fastest ever), along with the world's first 3D vapor-chamber cooling system and an additional snap-on cooler.

Google Lens is coming to camera apps from Google, Motorola, LG, Sony, and more

Google is going big on machine learning at this year's I/O—much of the keynote was about Assistant and Lens, both of which leverage neural networks to make magic happen on your phone.
