Asus Reveals New ROG Gaming Smartphone, Complete with Cooling Fan Attachment

The ROG Phone - bearing Asus' Republic of Gamers brand - is a phone created to take mobile gaming further than any device has before. Both of those now have a proper, beefier competitor: the ROG Phone, a phone so beefy that ASUS claims it's faster than a Samsung S9 or an iPhone X. What's interesting to note is that ASUS is using their own proprietary charging method, dubbed "ASUS HyperCharge".

ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) today announced ROG Phone, a 6-inch smartphone designed specifically for high-performance mobile gaming. Talking of which, the ROG Phone's AMOLED display has a super quick 90Hz refresh rate and 1ms response time plus support for HDR. It also features a 108.6 percent DCI-P3 color gamut and 10000:1 contrast ratio.

The main highlight of the Asus ROG Phone is a custom Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC revved up to 2.96 GHz and a gaming optimized Qualcomm Adreno 630 GPU.

The company hasn't confirmed how much internal storage the device has but did reveal that it will ship with 8GB of RAM. Additional features on the inside include a GameCool system that ensures the thermals on the inside doesn't heat up using the copper heat spreader and 3D Vapor chamber embedded next to the chipset. This new port provides two and a half times faster transfer speeds, while taking into consideration other devices that are connected to router (wired or wirelessly).

The ASUS ROG gaming phone pulls no stop at being a flagship smartphone of 2018 as it packs in a dual 12MP + 8MP camera at the back which is set up horizontally adjacent to each, not so far away from the rhombic-designed fingerprint scanner at the back.

Finally, there's an attachment with a second screen that vaguely resembles a Nintendo 3DS. This was implemented to explore the possibilities that ROG Phone brings to the gaming scene. There's also a "Twinview" dock with two screens to assist with game streaming, or multitasking while gaming. The WiGig Dock, on the other hand, connects over WiFi to the ROG Phone to enable low-latency playback on a nearby TV. The controller pairs with the ROG Phone to add physical gaming controls such as joysticks, triggers, and buttons. It's primary use to allow the phone to be plugged into a screen, with a working keyboard and mouse, but it can also be hooked up to a PC, to function as a KVM switch, letting you use the same screen, mouse and keyboard from your desktop on your phone with the flick of a switch.

While ASUS has paid a lot of attention to the common areas of complaints of mobile phones, they've also paid a lot of attention to a lot of the areas that commonly aren't complained about.
