India is one of the most important smartphone markets where leading smartphone brands are constantly trying to bring in featureful devices. Asus is also one of those brands that hold a decent grip in the Indian online market share.
According to a report by Counterpoint Research, in Q3 2019 the top three brands secured a 79% share in the smartphone market which was 83% in Q3 2018. All thanks to the growing presence of brands like Asus in the online market.
Moreover, the company never shies away from bringing in an innovative smartphone-like we had the motorized rotating camera in the Zenfone 6. Asus also brought in the ROG Phone II, a gaming beast, which is the successor to the original ROG Phone.
Matter of fact, Asus has just pushed in the October security update for the Asus ROG Phone II. Notably, this new update brings in some new features like grid display for game selection, game cover customization, AirTriggers, etc.
It carries version number 16.0631.1910.35 and bumps the security patch level to October 2019. Below is the official changelog and the screenshot of the announcement:
– Added grid display for game selection in the Games Library of Armoury Crate
– Added game cover customization in the Games Library of Armoury Crate
– Added AirTriggers slide gesture in Game Genie (Beta)
– Fixed the issue where navigation bar couldn’t be hidden when playing “Black Desert”
– Fixed the issue where Game Genie panel was pulled out easily when Key Mapping was used
One of the most important features of this new update for the ROG Phone II is the AirTriggers. This allows the user to use slide gestures on either the right or left edge of the phone.
Now with this new update, you can set AirTriger for horizontal or vertical swiping. Besides, you can reposition the icon to a specific location and set the slider to the desired distance.
