Asus Announces Crazy New ROG Phone Designed for Mobile Gamers
The ASUS ROG gaming phone is real, ambitious, and thoughtfully designed
07 June, 2018, 05:18
While the ROG Phone's hardware and display already puts it at the top of the heap in the smartphone market, its the phone's ambitious gaming features and accessories that really sets it apart. The back has the famous ROG logo which lights up and can be customized as you wish. It's not the 120Hz of the Razer Phone, but you're getting an AMOLED display instead of LCD. With a 1ms response time, its faster than even the Razerphone.
The company hasn't confirmed how much internal storage the device has but did reveal that it will ship with 8GB of RAM. It packs dual front-facing stereo speakers, a dual rear-facings cameras with 12MP and 8MP sensors. This is the same camera configuration on the ASUSZenfone 5. Also, there is a 3.5mm jack on the device, and you get a 4,000mah battery with support for 20W fast charging. ASUS has moved the charging chip from the phone to the power adapter to reduce the heat from charging. As far as ports go, there's no Thunderbolt 3, but it does have a USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-C port, two USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-A ports, and a USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-A port, just to keep things confusing. The squeeze works exactly as it does in HTC's Edge Sense system, with a red glow showing up at the sides where you apply pressure.
Asus ROG smartphone features a 6.0-inch full HD+ (1080x2160 pixels) AMOLED display. "X-mode" is a gaming mode provided to block any interference in the form of notifications during gameplay and also kills other background apps to free up RAM. It runs on Android 8.1 (Oreo) with ROG Gaming X mode UI. While the ports on the sides will indeed provide support for additional accessories (which we'll talk about in a minute), ASUS says that the ports on the sides will allow users to play games in landscape mode without having to deal with an irritating cable that is sticking out from the bottom. The back of the phone is covered in insane lines and accents, including a ROG logo dressed up in RGB lighting which users have full control over in the software. To avoid overheating, Asus has built a copper heat spreader into the body, and even sells a separate clip-on fan to speed up heat dispersal. We also have a gamepad, called Gamevice, that places physical buttons on each side of the screen.
Finally, there's an attachment with a second screen that vaguely resembles a Nintendo 3DS. The accessory also has its own 6000mAh battery. There are a plethora of ports for connecting a monitor, keyboard, mouse and other peripherals.
Apple previews iOS 12
Valve has not responded to the new guidelines yet, but we imagine that the iOS Steam Link app will be released soon enough. The redesign is similar to the changes to the iOS 11 App Store , highlighted by new editorial content for app discovery.
Asusclaimed that the phone significantly outperformed the iPhone X and Samsung S9+, with an Antutu score of 304183 compared to the S9+'s 265083 and the iPhone X's 242865.
To expand its gaming possibilities, ASUS has also introduced an optional TwinView Dock which turns the phone into a dual-screen console.
The Asus ROG Phone will be available this summer. What about pricing? The company hasn't shared that information just yet, but we don't expect it to be cheap. Gaming smartphones are the new fad with brands launching smartphones with flagship chipsets and high RAM/storage configurations coupled with a large battery to accommodate long hours of gaming.
