At the “ROG Phone 6: For Those Who Dare” event held virtually, Asus announced the pair of top-of-the-range RoG Phone 6 and 6 Pro which, in picking up the legacy of last year’s models, provide specifics for gamers furniture that are not used to compromises, and that also seek the trifle in order to have a competitive advantage over their opponents.
Aesthetically similar to their predecessors, apart from an enlarged section, covered by glass, for the triple rear camera, the Asus RoG Phone 6 (173 x 77 x 10.3 mm for 239 grams) and Rog Phone 6 Pro (same measures as the standard) are practically identical to each other, apart from the mnemonic set-ups, the colors (Phantom Black and Storm White for the standard model, only Storm White for the Pro) and the back, with the basic model that has the common RGB backlit logo, while the Pro model has a second screen, PMOLED (Vision Color), which shows various animations and information in color with the device upside down.
Both Asus Rog Phone 6 have the double microUSB Type-C port, 2.0 on the lower edge and 3.1 on the side, to charge the device while playing: there is also the “GameFX” audio device, with the 3.5 mm mini-jack , two symmetrical front stereo speakers (with 7 magnets), a team of 3 microphones with “OZO” noise reduction, Dirac’s calibration, which provided the algorithms necessary to implement Dirac Virtuo spatial audio, and the implementation of Snapdragon Sound, for low latency streaming.
Continuing on the tracks of the lowest common denominators, the Asus RoG Phone 6 have the in-display fingerprint scanner, IPX4 waterproofing and ultrasonic back triggers, with the AirTrigger 6 system which, coordinating the back areas sensitive to touch and pressure with the on-board sensors, including digital compass, accelerometer, gyroscope, proximity and brightness, support multiple gestures, up to 14 “touch points” simultaneously, and new functions (Dual Action, Gyroscope Aiming, Press and Lift). Specifically, in the Apex Legends game, by swiping the thumb the shooter can load the weapon, to fire by keeping it pressed on it.
The RoG Phone 6 data sheet
The Asus Rog Phone 6, standard and Pro, already pre-orderable on the official store (with free external fan) and availability from mid-month Unieuro, GoldStore and EShop, graft into a vaguely techno-robotic design, under a slightly curved Gorilla Glass Victus , a 6.78-inch AMOLED display from Samsung, resolved at 2448 x 1080 pixels (395 PPI) according to an aspect ratio of 20.4: 9, with a brightness from 800 standard to 1,200 nits (in HDR), the ROG tuning suite ( to pass from 60, 90, 120, 144, 165 Hz of refresh rate, to reach 720 Hz of touch sampling, and 23 ms of response time), excellent coverage of chromatic games (DCI-P3 at 111.23, sRGB at 150.89%, Delta E <1), high contrast (1,000,000: 1), dedicated Pixelwork i6 co-processor, attention to sight (SGS Seamless Pro at 120Hz, SGS Eye Care at 6.5%), and AS coating (to avoid the typical friction of sweaty fingers).
On the software side, the Armory Crate tool allows you to set profiles for each game, in terms of brightness and refresh / touch rate, while the Game Genie control panel, pulled up during games, allows you to fix some buttons on the screen (eg screen capture) , to deactivate some gestures on the fly, or to activate the viewfinder for first person shooters. The selfiecamera, Sony IMX663, is 12 megapixel while, behind, the triple camera, capable of making videos even 8K @ 24fps or 4K @ 30 / 60fps, and slow motion even 4K @ 120fps), provides a main sensor from Sony IMX766 (electronic stabilization) from 50, an ultra-wide angle from 13 and a sensor for macro, from 5 megapixels,
As the processing core, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 octacore was chosen, with 3.2 GHz maximum clock and, compared to the non Plus, better energy and temperature management: LPDDR5 RAM and UFS 3.1 storage combine, as much as to the standard model, in 12 + 256 GB (€ 1,099) and 16 + 512 GB (€ 1,199) while, in the Pro, only in 18 + 512 GB (€ 1,399). With regard to thermal dissipation, the GameCool 6 system offers a 360 ° technology in favor of the processor, a vapor chamber increased by 30%, a double plate, wider, of graphite, with the possibility of further benefits through the accessory AeroActive Cooler 6 (89.99 euros), an external fan which, thanks to some sensors and being enlarged compared to the past, can reduce the external temperature by 25%, also providing 4 additional buttons and a small extendable stand to keep the device in horizontal.
The battery, from 6,000 mAh, divided into two cells of 3,000 each, charges quickly to 65W by means of the side Type-C: at the level of connectivity, there are 5G, Dual nanoSIM, Bluetooth 5.2, the three antennas for Wi -Fi 6E 2 × 2 MIMO, NFC (in card mode with device off), and GPS (Beidou, Galileo, Glonass, QZSS, NavIC). The operating system is Android 12, with the possibility of switching to the sober proprietary ZenUI to make it a more serious device.
The Devil Case ROG PHONE 6 Guardian case costs 39.99 euros, the ROG PHONE 6 Glass Screen Protector 29.99 euros, the ROG Clip 29.99 euros, and the ROG Kunai 3 Gamepad for ROG 6 in black and white 119.99 euros. The ROG Cetra True Wireless Pro are dual mode gaming headphones, with the Bluetooth connection that, via Qualcomm Soung, sees the latency reduced to 45 ms, or the use via USB Type-C cable. Equipped with an AI noise canceling microphone, and an ESS 9280 Quad DAC, they benefit from various active noise canceling modes, ANC, as well as one with improved wind hiss reduction.
The ROG Delta S Wireless are always dual mode headphones, but they complement Bluetooth with 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi via dongle: in the pavilions they conceal Beamforming microphones with AI noise cancellation. The lightest (270 grams) ROG Delta S Core headphones think about the weight problem, while the ROG Cetra True Wireless earphones are nestled in a casket case, equipped with a low-latency wireless mode specifically for gaming.
