ASUS has announced the 2022 installments of its gaming-focused Republic of Gamers phone lineup: the ROG Phone 6 and the ROG Phone 6 Pro.
Both phones are powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset, with up to 18GB of LPDDR5 RAM, and up to 512 GB of non-expandable storage.
Both ROG Phone 6 models sport 6.78-inch AMOLED displays (2448 x 1080), 165Hz refresh rates, and industry-leading 720Hz touch sampling rate. Peak brightness now reaches 1200 nits in auto mode.
The upgraded GameCool 6 cooling system includes 360° CPU cooling technology, a 30% larger vapor chamber, and 85% larger graphite sheets, along with a centered-CPU design to increase heat dissipation from the core.
Keeping the lights on is a 6000mAh battery with support for 65W wired charging.
Aside from the RAM configuration, the other main difference between the two phones is the customizable ROG Vision secondary display on the back of the ROG Phone 6 Pro.
The ROG Phone 6 series is also equipped with a triple-camera system featuring a flagship Sony IMX766 50MP main wide-angle camera, an ultrawide 13MP second camera, and a macro camera. There’s also a 12MP front camera.
The ROG Phone 6 is available in Phantom Black and Storm White, and comes equipped with Aura RGB lighting on the back, up to 16GB of LPDDR5 RAM, and up to 512GB of storage.
