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”.

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

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

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.
