22nd October 2018, Kuala Lumpur – ASUS Republic of Gamers announced the ROG Phone, a game-changing 6-inch smartphone designed specifically for high-performance mobile gaming. The launching of the ultimate gaming smartphone was held in Battle Arena Malaysia – a high-end gaming venue and one of Southeast Asia’s biggest e-sports club.
With pure ROG gaming DNA at its core, and powered by the world’s fastest speed-binned 2.96GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 Mobile Platform with gaming-optimized Qualcomm Adreno 630 GPU, ROG Phone breaks every rule to go where rivals fear to tread.
ROG Phone is built to win: its unique GameCool vapor-chamber cooling system, with detachable AeroActive Cooler for an extra cooling boost, sustains blur-free high frame rates in the heat of battle, while its no-compromise AMOLED display blends a blazing 90Hz refresh rate and 1ms response time with gorgeous HDR visuals.
The ultra-comfortable design of ROG Phone includes unique side-mounted ports, and the enhanced, ultra-responsive game controls including two programmable ultrasonic AirTriggers and advanced force-feedback haptics, let gamers focus all their skills on the game, giving them the edge they need for total domination.
A unique range of powerful expansion accessories further enhances the ROG Phone gaming experience: the optional TwinView Dock for dual-screen handheld mode, the Mobile Desktop Dock for desktop-style gaming, and the Gamevice controller with WiGig Dock using 60GHz Wi-Fi for big-screen gaming.
