While Asus’ ROG line of gaming-tailored computers and accessories is a major player in the desktop space, and it’s looking to become an even more notable name in the world of gaming phones. Upon updating its flagship gaming phone model, the tech manufacturer manages to make PC power portable.
The ROG Phone 6 and 6 Pro serve as substantial upgrades to the brand’s preceding line, offering enhanced refresh rates of up to 165Hz on the phones’ 6.78″ Samsung AMOLED display compared to the ROG Phone 5’s 144Hz clip. The phones are powered by a high-performance Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 Processor, resulting in rapid-fire results whether you’re browsing or find yourself mid-game. The primary differences between the standard and Pro configurations are the additional OLED screen found on the back of the 6 Pro, along with the ability to add more memory, with the Pro’s Ram expanding up to 18GB.
The mobile gaming devices also features an active cooling function, with ROG’s patented GameCool6 tech paving the way for a more stable playing experience even in more demanding games. On top of that, they offer audiophile-grade sound prowess optimized by Dirac, which is bettered thanks to ROG’s fine-tuned EQ. Lastly, both phones boast an IPX4 rating for splash resistance, deeming them all-inclusive powerhouses that can withstand some wear and tear. All things considered, the latest gaming phones from Asus offer a lot to consider from both a design and performance perspective.
If you’re a PC gamer looking to take your talents on the go, this is a great way to start. Asus’ ROG Phone 6 and Phone 6 Pro are expected to release overseas first but will make their way to the U.S. eventually.
