Asus has a monster phone for serious mobile gamers

Asus Launches ROG Phone - Company's First Ever Gaming Smartphone

ASUS will have the ROG Phone on the market in Q3, and judging by what the company has unveiled here it is the best gaming smartphone on the market by a long shot. beating out even the Razer Phone, which doesn't hold a candle next to the ROG Phone. It's a 6-inch, 18:9 AMOLED panel with a resolution of 2160x1080. Speaking of clocking, the Snapdragon 845 is overclocked, meaning that not only is this phone powerful, it's the most powerful smartphone on the market - according to Asus. In addition to the traditional bottom-mounted USB-C port, there's also one on the side of the phone, which allows you to charge with the phone in landscape mode without an awkward cable sticking out from the side. Does the ROG phone interest you at all? The main design highlight of the phone is its 3D vapor-chamber cooling system for keeping the device from overheating.

There's also the Mobile Desktop Dock which allows users to pair their ROG Phone to a desktop monitor. The phone is armed with a massive 4,000mAh battery, which comes with Asus HyperCharge technology that can charge the phone up to 60 percent in 33 minutes.

With a refresh rate of 144Hz and a 3ms response time, the full HD display on the Scar is about as good as it gets for a gaming laptop.


Asus ROG phone is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset with Adreno 630 GPU. Unlike the other two gaming smartphones, it still comes with a 3.5mm headphone jack. For starters, you can use a regular 2.4GHz RF connection, but the mouse also supports Bluetooth in case you forget or lose the RF dongle.

There's a huge 8GB of RAM inside of the ASUS ROG Phone, and camera wise we have an 8-megapixel up front and 12/8-megapixel ultra-wide on the back, with a rear fingerprint sensor joining the fray. Most of the titles also don't run above 60Hz as we saw with the Razer Phone, so the 90Hz refresh rate will only really be useful while navigating the phone's menus. ASUS is also hoping that developers make use of the second screen, effectively turning its ROG phone into a shiny, next-generation Nintendo DS of sorts. If you're a hardcore mobile gamer, however, nothing on or coming to the market now beats the gaming power packed in that size. The TwinView Dock is a clamshell-type handheld console with its own display. The phone's got a copper heat spreader and carbon cooling pads inside, and it all boils down (sorry) to 50% faster sustained clock speeds than a "standard" smartphone CPU, according to the company. And because it is an ASUS device for gamers, it has a fully programmable RGB ROG logo on the back, because of course it does. Lastly, a WiGig Dock will let you mirror your phone's display wirelessly to your living room TV, giving you a larger screen to play on in a jiffy. Nevertheless, we do not expect it to come cheap. While docked, the phone also acts as a secondary display and you can even hook it up to gigabit LAN and a 5.1 channel surround sound system via its SPDIF port.
