The new ROG Phone won't be the first to be aimed at mobile gamers - the Razer Phone, for instance, is another example of a predominantly gaming brand stepping into mobile - it seems the Asusphone will be optimized for gaming in a way that no predecessor has been, as much a gaming platform that's also a phone as the other way around. It has an additional 6-inch 1080p screen, similar to the phone, and has its own set of speakers and a cooling system.
Asus' beefy new phone is not the only smartphone that's advertised as gaming-friendly - Razer Phone and Moto Z2 Play come to mind as well - but it Asus has definitely taken the concept further than anyone else. 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. While there's no word on storage yet, it has 8GB of RAM.
To get all that power in without creating an overheating problem, the ROG phone has the same GameCool vapor-chamber cooling system seen in ROG laptops.
For what it's worth, ASUS has gone many more steps ahead of Razer to really sell you this phone.
It's one hell of an ambitious gaming phone - and with mobile gaming proving to be increasingly popular thanks to PUBG and Fortnite, comes at the right time.
Specially, the company is working to have the new ROG Phone to arrive in Malaysia within July or August 2018. For a silky smooth visual experience, the screen has a 90Hz refresh rate with a 1 ms pixel response time.
HDR support is also on the cards, with native support for the Amazon, Netflix and Youtube HDR standards, as well as the ability to convert SDR content to HDR on the fly - just like Sony's Xperia XZ2. If you're a hardcore mobile gamer, however, nothing on or coming to the market now beats the gaming power packed in that size. Lastly, there is the TwinView Dock, which has a clamshell design. This does mean you likely won't be using the phone for virtual reality gaming though. The rest of the phone's physical design is aggressively "gamer-ish" with lots of angular facets and an RGB logo on the back.
There's more. The phone has three ultrasonic "AirTrigger" touch sensors - two are created to be left and right triggers at the top of display for gaming in landscape mode, and a third one designed for portrait-mode use. That accessory also adds 6,000 mAh of power to the setup. Asus hasn't mentioned the Android version running on this device, but we expect it to run Android 8.1 Oreo. You can dock it, slot two halves of a controller on each side, and even connect a second screen to it so it acts like a 3DS. 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. This includes an AeroActive Cooler, which helps keep the smartphone cool during intensive gaming.
