The True Gaming Phone: Asus ROG?
Back in December, when the famous gaming brand, RAZER announced its Razer smartphone with unbeatable specs, it was beginning of a new era. Soon, Xiaomi unveiled its own gaming phone, the Black Shark which took mobile gaming to a new level with their detachable gamepads. Nubia released its Red Magic in this new fashion.
Following this tend, Republic Of Gamers(ROG), Asus’s gaming sub-brand launched their ROG phone in Computex 18. The company claims that the Snapdragon 845 on this smartphone is the highest clocked (2.96GHz instead of regular 2.8GHz) SD 845 out there! ROG phone comes with a 90 Hz refresh rate FHD+ AMOLED HDR display panel of 6-inches, which has a response time of 1ms only. With 8GB of RAM and up to 512GB of onboard storage option and a gaming optimised Adreno 630 GPU, it surely packs a beast.
ASUS ROG has added some of the most innovative solutions in this phone which includes GameCool system. It uses 3D Vapour Chamber and Copper Heat spreader for cooling. ROG phone comes with ultrasonic AirTrigger sensors which can act as a switch for shortcuts in gaming and for certain tasks. It also comes with a dual camera setup of 12+8 MP at back, and a graphically designed fingerprint scanner. Powered by a 4000 mAH battery, it promises 7 hours of Wi-Fi gameplay. The graphic design at the glass back of ROG phone is just too awesome.
Asus ROG also launched a pack of accessories for this phone. It includes an AeroActive Cooler which adds a charging and headphone jack so that your both hands are free to game.
There is an extra screen accessory called TwinView Pedestal, a console called GameVice Gamepad, and a WiGig Dock which lets you play mobile games on a TV.
There is also a Mobile Desktop Dock which allows the Smartphone to be used as a Desktop PC!
Asus hasn’t revealed any cost yet, but it is expected to hit the market in the third Quarter of 2018.
