ASUS ROG Reveals ROG Phone 6 Series; Here’s How Powerful They Are

ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG)’s ROG Phone 6: For Those Who Dare virtual launch event has just passed revealing this year’s take of the ROG Phone series of gaming smartphones along with a bunch of other products and their prices.

That’s right folks; like last year which saw the releases of iterations of the same model, the ROG Phone 6 series includes two models as of right now, the ROG Phone 6 and the ROG Phone 6 Pro. Asus boldly claims both being the most powerful ROG Phones to date. And from the looks of past phones, a lot more pricey too.

To accompany the unveiling of the two devices, several gaming headphones were also showcased, including the new ROG Cetra True Wireless Pro dual-mode wired/wireless model featuring an ESS Quad DAC and an AI Noise-Canceling Microphone and the ROG Cetra True Wireless for low-latency gaming audio. For detailed and true-to-life headset audio, the ROG Delta S Wireless, ROG’s dual-mode wireless gaming headset and the lightweight 270-gram ROG Delta S Core gaming headsets are on display.

ROG Phone 6 & ROG Phone 6 Pro

The ROG Phone 6 series is powered by the latest flagship Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 Mobile Platform with up to 3.2 GHz CPU clock speeds, up to 18 GB of LPDDR5 RAM, and up to 512 GB of storage.

The Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 delivers power and performance enhancements for the ultimate boost across all on-device experiences. It offers the full suite of Snapdragon Elite Gaming features plus an improved Qualcomm Adreno GPU, delivering a more than 50% performance improvement when compared to the Snapdragon 888 that powered the ROG Phone 5. The device is backed by up to 18 GB of LPDDR5 RAM and up to 512 GB of storage, which is meant to help with game stability and device reliability.

The upgraded GameCool 6 cooling system features novel 360° CPU cooling technology to unleash maximum sustained performance. A monster 6000mAh battery capacity provides extended battery life for long game sessions. Supreme visuals are delivered by a 6.78-inch Samsung AMOLED HDR10+ display that uses exclusive ROG tuning technology to achieve an amazing 165Hz refresh rate, an industry-leading 720Hz touch-sampling rate and a world-beating 23ms ultra-low touch latency. The new series is accompanied by a full array of exclusive ROG Phone 6 accessories, including the new AeroActive Cooler 6 and ROG Phone 6 Glass Screen Protector.

Wireless & wired headphones

A range of existing and new wireless and wired headphones was also showcased. The ROG Cetra True Wireless Pro and ROG Cetra True Wireless gaming headphones deliver remarkable audio and low-latency connections.

The new Cetra True Wireless Pro is a wired / wireless dual-mode model featuring an ESS Quad DAC and an AI Noise-Canceling Microphone, giving exceptional in-game audio and communication with the freedom to easily switch between wireless and wired USB-C modes.

In Bluetooth mode, it uses the latest Snapdragon Sound technology, delivering a low-latency connection and premium music streaming. An ultra-low-latency gaming mode provides 45 ms7 audio for perfectly synced in-game sounds on ROG Phone 6. Furthermore, Cetra True Wireless Pro features multiple Active Noise Cancelation modes to reduce wider-frequency background noise and enhance wind-noise reduction for unparalleled audio immersion.

For wired mode, ROG engineers also developed the innovative in-line audio optimizer with built-in ESS 9280 Quad DAC for exceptional audio with rich, detailed spatial sound. In addition, the AI Noise-Canceling Microphone reduces over 500 million types of background noise such as chatter, keyboard clatter and mouse clicks by up to 95% for crystal-clear voice communication.

The ROG Cetra series also includes ROG Cetra True Wireless, which is a purely wireless model featuring a Gaming mode for low-latency wireless audio that offers better synchronization with onscreen visuals.

The brand-new ROG Delta S Wireless is the first ROG dual-mode wireless gaming headset. It can be used in either 2.4 GHz or Bluetooth modes for maximum flexibility when connecting devices.

An extensive array of accessories

An ecosystem of modular accessories allows gamers to optimize their gameplay experience on the ROG Phone 6 series. Accessories include the AeroActive Cooler 6, ROG Kunai 3 Gamepad for ROG Phone 6, ROG Phone 6 Glass Screen Protector, cases and more. The clip-on AeroActive Cooler 6 has an AI-powered thermoelectric cooler, and a fan that delivers increased cooling airflow directly to hotspots on the back cover of the ROG Phone 6.
