Asus will launch its premium smartphone for mobile gaming enthusiasts tomorrow. O ROG 6 phone will be released on July 5th at 5:20 pm and the global event will be broadcast live. Asus has been tweeting some of the features we can expect to see on the device.
The continuation of last year ROG 5 phone series, ROG Phone 6 will feature the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 Chipset. This makes it the first smartphone with Qualcomm’s latest chipset to hit Indian and international markets. Asus claims they have improved temperatures inside the smartphone by providing a 30% larger vapor chamber. They also added an 85% larger copper foil to the ROG Phone 6.
And it’s not just Asus that works on the thermal management of your device. During Qualcomm’s announcement of the latest Snapdragon chipsets, it has been repeated that they come with better thermal performance. Chipsets consume 30% less power for GPU tasks and provide nearly similar CPU power efficiency.
Although the price of the device is not confirmed, we can expect the smartphone to sell for around Rs 50,000. The smartphone can be sold on Flipkart also later this week.
In terms of the remaining specs, the smartphone will feature a 165Hz AMOLED display, a 64MP primary camera lens, the signature LED display on the back, and IPX4 splash resistance. The smartphone can have up to 18GB of RAM and 1TB of storage. Rumor has it that it comes with a 5,850mAh battery with support for 65W fast charging. Plus, it might come with an in-display fingerprint scanner and stereo speakers with Dolby Atmos support and run on Android 12 out of the box.
A ROG Phone 6 Lite too, please?
Mobile games have become very common in Indian markets. We have not only seen an increase in active players across the country, but also an increase in eSports companies and events. Asus’ ROG branding may soon prevail in any tournament event that may soon be organized. After BGMI and Call of Duty, Apex Legends Mobile can also have its own tournament. Furthermore, mobile game companies and developers predicted that their revenue can double in the next two years.
If there’s a bigger scope to get more consumers on board the mobile gaming experience hype, Asus would definitely benefit from a mid-range device. Sure, the core hardware is a gold standard for gaming, but even the essentials can be a great device. The company uses Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 series chipsets and keeps the AMOLED display with a lower refresh rate of 120Hz.
