Asus ROG Phone: The New Height Of Gaming Phone!
Jun 11 2018
On Monday at Computex in Taipei, Asus introduced the ROG Phone - crazy accessories and impressive features and truly one for gamers.
The most highlight of ROG Phone is different design, bunkers and truly for gamers.
- Speed-binned 2.9GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor.
- 18:9, 6-inch AMOLED display, 2160x1080-pixel resolution.
- AirTrigger virtual shoulder buttons.
- Side USB-C port for charging while horizontal gaming .
- 90Hz refresh rate.
- 4,000mAh battery.
- 12+8-megapixel rear dual cameras.
- ARCore support.
- Gaming HDR support.
The sides of the phone are equipped with what Asus call AirTriggers - sensors that can register the touch of a finger. Each shoulder can be programmed with a function, like braking and reversing in a racing game for instance. Asus claims the ROG Phone is the fastest on the market at the moment. It also said that the phone's battery will last for over 7 hours during Wi-Fi-connected gaming.
The most intriguing of all is the optional TwinView Dock - It transforms the phone into a Nintendo DS-like dual screen device. One half of the case has an extra display, while the top half has an area into which the ROG Phone can be slotted.
You simply attach the phone to the top via the conjoined USB ports, and then you'll be able to play your game in your choice of screen, leaving the other for watching reactions from viewers of your hypothetical gameplay stream. It felt much more like a handheld gaming platform than a tweaked phone setup when I was able to play a few minutes of PUBG-esque battle royale game Free Fire using the TwinView Dock.
A peripheral called the AeroActive Cooler will also be available: If the ROG Phone gets too hot, you can attach the Cooler and it'll, well, cool the phone down.
Finally, there's a mobile desktop dock that lets you connect the ROG Phone to a monitor or computer to give you a more desktop gaming experience.
We look forward to putting that to the test, though the company didn't announce when exactly the phone will be released!
