The ROG Phone 6 yearly refresh was just announced a few months ago in July, but fast forward to September and ASUS has expanded the ROG Phone lineup with the 6D and the 6D Ultimate!
So what’s new?
Glad you asked, so the 6D lineup comes equipped with the latest Dimensity 9000+ chipset and GameCool 6 Vapor Chamber cooling system for the pinnacle of mobile gaming.
Paired with the all-new AeroActive Portal that boasts a 9x larger thermal surface area, the ROG Phone 6D lineup can juice itself until the massive 6,000 mAh battery runs out without any performance slow down and throttling by running nearly 1 liter of cold per minute through the cooling fins on the AeroActive 6 cooler.
Upfront, we have a 6.78-inch 165 Hz AMOLED HDR10+ display with an industry-leading 720 Hz touch-sampling rate that’s color calibrated with Pixelworks® for superb color accuracy. The 6D base model comes with 12GB or 16GB LPDDR5X RAM depending on the Model and the Ultimate comes in 16+512GB only. The 6D Ultimate model comes with an AeroActive 6 cooler in the box and packs a ROG Vision Matrix display on the back.
It’s not a ROG Phone if it doesn’t come with an armory full of accessories.
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 6D Series. Hope you’re happy with all the freebies that come in the box. But wait, there’s more!
ASUS, DC Comics, and Warner Bros. team up for a special edition of the ROG Phone 6, named the Batman Edition.
It comes in a special Aura RGB Batman logo and a Gotham City design semi-matte finish, and a ton of Batman-themed accessories, including a Batman Aero Case, Bat-Signal Projector, Batman Ejector Pin with Gotham City-themed stand, and a custom water-proof military style storage case. To top it all off, the phone also comes with a Batman-themed skin on top of Android.
