ASUS has announced the ROG Phone 6 and ROG Phone 6 Pro, new gaming smartphones packed with premium technologies to better meet the needs of more demanding mobile gamers. Both of ASUS’ new ROG Phones are powered by Qualcomm’s flagship Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 Mobile Platform and Adreno 730 GPU, with up to 3.2 GHz CPU clock speeds, up to 18 GB of LPDDR5 RAM, and up to 512 GB of storage. Further highlights include GameCool 6, a cooling system that features “360° CPU cooling technology to unleash maximum sustained performance,” and a GameFX audio system that comprises symmetrical seven-magnet dual speakers and a Dirac Virtuo spatial audio solution for more immersive stereo sound. Rounding off the ROG Phone 6 Series’ specifications is a 6,000 mAh battery, a 6.78-inch Samsung AMOLED HDR10+ display with 165 Hz refresh rate, and a main camera that utilizes Sony’s flagship IMX766 50 MP image sensor. The ROG Phone 6 Pro, which is differentiated by its color ROG Vision mini-display on the back and 18 GB of LPDDR5 RAM memory, is available exclusively in Storm White, while its standard siblings are also available in Phantom Black and feature Aura RGB lighting on the back and up to 16 GB of LPDDR5 RAM.

Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 offers amped-up gameplay — unleashed with the full suite of Snapdragon Elite Gaming features plus an improved Qualcomm Adreno GPU — delivering a more than 50% performance improvement when compared to the Snapdragon 888 that powered the ROG Phone 5. The device is backed by up to 18 GB of LPDDR5 RAM and up to 512 GB of storage, for the most reliable and stable gaming experience.
