Asus ROG Phone 6 Build and Design
- 172.83 x 77.25 x 10.39mm, 228g
- IPX4 rated protection
- Rear display
This latest generation of ROG Phones maintains the cool gamer aesthetic that we’ve come to expect from this line. This phone’s dimensions haven’t changed much from previous models, either. It’ll be available in black or white, with a variety of graphics on the back of the phone, as before.
IPX4 protection, which means the ROG Phone 6 is completely waterproof, is the most significant change.
The displays on the back of the ROG Phone 5 are also different from those on the front. Compared to the ROG Phone 6, the ROG Phone Pro has a much more customizable display, with a Dot Display capable of displaying graphics.
All smartphones have 3.5mm headphone jacks, stereo speakers, and dual USB-C ports for charging, making them more versatile. The phone comes with a variety of accessories, including a case and a cooler, as well as the Kunai 3 Gamepad and AeroActive Cooler 6. The Cooler is built to withstand extended gaming sessions.
Air Triggers and a wide range of motion controls are available for the ROG Phone 6 so you can play any game in any way you prefer. Read More; Google Pixel 7 Pro Tipped to Feature Brighter Display Than Pixel 6 Pro
- Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1, 12-18GB RAM
- 6,000mAh, 65W Charging
As of this release, the ROG Phone 6 is powered by Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1. The ROG Phone 5S had a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor, but Asus has decided to go with the updated hardware, so this is a significant upgrade. The ROG Phone 6 has a choice of either 12 or 16GB of RAM, while the 6 Pro has 18GB of RAM. Other storage options are available, but microSD cards are not supported.
For this phone, the SoC is centered, so the battery is divided into two cells, resulting in a total capacity of 6000mAh. In spite of its size, this battery is designed to last for long periods of time while playing video games. It can be charged at a rate of up to 67W using the included charger. Because there are two USB-C ports on the phone’s side, you can charge it while holding it in your hand while playing a game.
It’s also possible to power the phone’s hardware without recharging the battery. Read: Google Pixel Fold — Everything We Know So Far
New cooling system with a larger graphite plate and vapour chamber will help keep the phone cool – especially when using AeroActive Cooler 6 for longer periods of time. The Cooler can be powered by the phone or an external charger and has additional controls on it.
Asus ROG Phone 6 Cameras
50MP main, 13MP ultrawide, 5MP macro and a 12MP selfie are all included.
The ROG Phone 6 has a triple camera setup on the back, with the main camera now using the Sony IMX766 sensor, which has a resolution of 50 megapixels. With a larger sensor than in previous generations of ROG Phone devices, the performance will be better as a result.
For all those selfies, the front camera has been upgraded to 12-megapixels, and it’s backed up by an ultrawide and macro camera as well. Read Also;
- Android 12
- 2 years of updates
Sadly, you’ll only get two OS updates with the ROG Phone 6, so it will end with Android 14.
Only two years of security updates, which is a long way behind the industry standards. There is no doubt in Asus’ mind that this phone will be replaced within two years of purchase for another model.
Additionally, Armoury Crate, which is among the most comprehensive and accomplished gaming software on a phone, is available to enhance the experience and ensure that you are getting the best out of your phone.
