Asus confirmed both the name of the ROG Phone 6 and its release date. Asus will launch the phone on July 5, 2022, It’s summer and so it’s the season of Asus’ new gaming smartphone. Introducing the new Asus ROG Phone 6 and ROG Phone 6 Pro, equipped with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 SoC

It’s summer and we know that it is often at this time that Asus draws, in turn, its new smartphone, or at least the one that interests the most gamers among you. Also, after the rumors, Asus has just formalized its new smartphone for gamers. Introducing rog Phone 6 and

ROG Phone 6 Pro. No Ultimate version since it is the Pro version that is intended for the most demanding. It should be noted that this year, Asus has returned to an announcement in summer and is more frontal compared to the behemoths of the market.

the ROG Phone remains a premium smartphone for gamers. And it is not for nothing that Asus has waited for the summer since the ROG Phone 6 embeds the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen1 SoC, the fastest SoC of the Californian foundry. As had already been the case in previous years.

Asus is targeting an audience that knows exactly what it wants, who is looking for the best possible performance for gaming. Whoever hesitates with a Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra, an Oppo Find X5 Pro or more recently a Vivo X80 Pro is clearly not the target. 

Specs of the ROG Phone 6

Also, as last year, Asus has put all the chances on its side and we find high-end features with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen1 SoC (10% faster than a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 in CPU & GPU and 30% more efficient in power), an Adreno 730 GPU, from 256 to 512GB of internal memory in UFS 3.1, 12GB or 16GB of LPDDR5 RAM (the Pro version offers 18GB), WiFi 6E, Bluetooth 5.2, NFC, a USB 3.1 Type-C port on the side and bottom of the smartphone.

all in a weight of 239g! There is also a quality jack and HiRes Audio certified. The AeroActive Cooler goes into version 6 being, even more, imposing with now not two but four configurable buttons. Note that it does not come standard with the ROG Phone 6. It is offered as an option at 89 euros.

Like its predecessor, the Asus ROG Phone 6 offers an impressive 6000mAh battery that breaks down into 2 3000mAh batteries, allowing it to be recharged to 4200mAh in just 30 minutes. This also extends the life of the batteries themselves. We find the HyperCharge technology that allows a wired charging of 65W.

As last year, the chargers continue to be part of the packaging and it should be noted that there is no more ventilation in the back since the cooling system is done internally.

Display of the ROG Phone 6

On the photo side, the ROG Phone 6 takes the photo block of its predecessor and therefore offers a photo block composed of a classic wide-angle, an ultra-wide-angle, and a macro. 2022 obliges, Asus has updated the main sensor with a Sony IMX766 of 50 Megapixels with an aperture of F/1.8, an ultra-wide-angle with a sensor of 13 Megapixels and an aperture of F/2.4 and a macro with a sensor of 5 Megapixels and an aperture of F/2.0. It is complemented by a better quality front camera with a Sony IMX663 sensor of 12 Megapixels.

On the audio side, the Asus ROG Phone 6 offers stereo speakers on the front and support for the Dirac HD Sound, optimized with Asus headphones. Designed for streaming as well, the ROG Phone 5 is equipped with 3 microphones and the position of these has been designed for use in landscape mode, as well as the front camera which is offset so as not to be hindered by the hands of users in case of streaming.

For the screen, we take the same recipe that worked very well last year. Also, the Asus ROG Phone 6 offers an AMOLED Gorilla Glass Victus panel with a Full HD+ definition of 1080×2448. The diagonal is 6.78 inches in 20.4:9 format. Of course, even if we do not need it yet, we find a refresh rate of 165Hz, just like the support of the DCI-P3 profile, the support of HDR 10+ and a touch latency with a return of only 23ms.

Conclusion for Asus ROG Phone 6

And finally, because it is above all a gaming smartphone, which is a bit the nerve of the war for Asus, we find the Air Trigger which goes to version 6, always faster and with even less latency. As a reminder, the Air Trigger 6 are sensitive keys that allow you to simulate the pressure as on Google’s Pixel when the smartphone is held in portrait mode. But in landscape mode, this allows you to simulate the L and R buttons as on a real controller.

You can even set a slide, a short or long press, etc. And finally, Asus has obviously resumed its application dedicated to games, Game Genie which allows all kinds of actions such as disabling notifications or calls, locking the brightness, etc.

The Pro version 

ROG Phone 6 Pro version

This year, the ROG Phone 6 and its Pro version are in themselves quite close with similar basic features. We find the same 6.78-inch screen, the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 SoC, and the same photo block on the back and front. So, the first difference is on the back with a ROG RGB logo on the ROG Phone 6 while the ROG Phone 6 Pro offers a ROG Vision PMOLED screen that can be customized. 

In terms of memory, the ROG Phone 6 Pro is the only one to offer 18GB of RAM. Moreover, it is only available in an 18GB version of RAM with 512GB of internal memory. Similarly, the ROG Phone 6 Pro is not available in the Phantom Black version. That’s it, it’s all in terms of difference and we can say that it is above all cosmetic and that the 18GB of RAM should not influence the performance.
