Asus ROG Phone 6 has just been announced as the latest gaming smartphone from the company for the global markets. All details are given here.
Asus’ ROG Phone 6 is here after much delay but it brings enough upgrades to justify the wait. The ROG Phone 6 uses the fastest chipset any Android phone can use, and it also offers some of the most insane specs that gamers can think of.
The ROG Phone 6 series comes in two flavors – ROG Phone 6 and ROG 6 Pro. Availability in India is yet to be announced but prices for India are out. The Asus ROG Phone 6 moves up the price ladder this time with a price tag of Rs. 71,999 for the single variant with 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage.
The ROG Phone 6 Pro, on the other hand, will come with a price tag of Rs. 89,999 for a single variant with 18GB of RAM and 512GB of storage.
The ROG Phone 6 comes in Phantom Black and Storm White colours, while the ROG 6 Pro comes in Solar White color variants.
The phone remains largely unchanged from its predecessors, but 2022 brings just changes in line with the smartphone market.
ROG Phone 6 unveiled
The Asus ROG Phone 6 and Phone 6 Pro are pretty much the same except for the design and RAM/storage configuration. The phone has a 6.7-inch FHD+ AMOLED display with a refresh rate of 165Hz and touch sampling rate of 720Hz.
It also supports HDR10+ colors and has a maximum brightness of up to 1200nits. The display also has Gorilla Glass Victus protection. There is also a small polished display on the back of the phone which is customizable.
In addition to this, the phone gets the latest and fastest Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset paired with 12GB RAM on the standard model and 18GB RAM on the Pro variant. The cooling system is also said to be better than before.
Asus also upgrades the cameras on the phone with a 50MP Sony IMX766 sensor for the main camera, a 13MP ultra-wide camera and a 5MP macro camera. The phone also has 12 megapixel front camera.
The ROG Phone 6 also retains its powerful stereo speaker setup and marks the first time the phone has received an IPX4 rating. The Pro variant gets a small OLED display at the back to show instructions or graphics,
while the Standard variant only gets a backlit ROG logo. All of this is backed by a 6000mAh battery and it’s still backed by last year’s 65W fast wired charging, though you only get a 30W charger in the box.
