ASUS ROG PHONE 6
The Most Powerful 5G Gaming Phone ia coming! ROG PHONE 6 is The World’s 1st gaming phone with Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1, Refuse Fever, For Those Who Dare!
The design of the ROG Phone models continues that cool gamer aesthetic we’ve seen on previous models in this family. The size is pretty much unchanged from previous versions of this phone too. Again, it will be available in black or white colours and sporting a range of graphics on the rear of the phone.
The ROG Phone 6 makes the move to the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1. Asus has decided to skip Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 and go for the updated hardware, so this is quite a jump over the ROG Phone 5S. The RAM is again aligned to the model you choose with the ROG Phone 6 offering 12 or 16GB options, while the 6 Pro has 18GB RAM. There are also various storage options, but no support for microSD.
The SoC sits in the centre of this phone, so the battery is split into two cells, for a total of 6000mAh. That’s a massive battery, but it’s designed to support long gaming sessions. It charges at up to 67W, with a charger in the box. There are two USB-C ports to support this, so you can charge via the side port, which makes it much easier to hold the phone when playing a game.
You can also opt not to charge the battery and just plug the phone in to power the hardware.
Much of the design is built around heat control and there’s a new cooling system on this phone with a larger graphite plate and vapour chamber, which will help keep the phone cool – with the AeroActive Cooler 6 for those longer sessions. The Cooler also has additional controls on it and can be powered either by the phone or from an external charger.
50MP main, 13MP ultrawide, 5MP macro, 12MP selfie
There’s a triple camera system on the rear of the ROG Phone 6, with the big news being the move to the Sony IMX766 for the main camera – which is a 50-megapixel sensor. That’s a larger sensor than the previous generation of ROG Phone devices, so it should boost the performance.
It’s supported by an ultrawide and macro camera, while the front camera moves to 12-megapixels for all those selfies.
2 years of updates
The ROG Phone 6 launches on Android 12, but the bad news is that you’ll only get two OS updates – so it will end with Android 14.
There’s also a range of software to support gaming functions – Armory Crate – and this is amongst the most comprehensive and accomplished gaming software you’ll find on a phone – so it really can optimize the experience and make sure you’re getting the most out of your phone.
