Asus 'phone with a fan' among weird gadgets at Computex

Asus \'phone with a fan\' among weird gadgets at Computex

A gaming phone with a removable fan, and a dual-screen laptop are among the new gadgets on show at the Computex conference in Taiwan.

Computer giant Asus revealed a powerful handset designed for gamers that comes with a clip-on fan to keep it cool during "strenuous gaming sessions".

It also showed off new laptops with dual screens, which it plans to sell in 2019.

But rival Lenovo was criticised for over-hyping its "all screen" phone.

Asus's gaming phone is the first Android-powered smartphone to be produced under the Republic of Gamers brand.

Its screen is capable of displaying 90 frames per second (fps) - more than regular phones - to make games play more smoothly.

There is also a range of accessories, including clip-on controllers that are vaguely reminiscent of the Nintendo Switch console.

A clip-on fan is also included in the box to stop the high-performance phone overheating.

Technology news site The Verge said it was the "highest-specced Android phone ever", although there are not many games available on Android that take full advantage of the souped-up hardware.

Computers powered by Intel chips typically have central processing units (CPUs) with four or six cores, allowing them to throw more "brainpower" at tasks when needed.

At present, Intel's top-end chips - the X-series - feature 18 cores, and cost up to $1,799.
