  • Asus has a monster phone for serious mobile gamers

At Computex, ASUS introduced its own ultrawide 49-inch that targets a more price-sensitive audience than Samsung's model does.

The ROG Strix (GL504) Hero II and SCAR II, all-new versions of the successful e-sports gaming laptops built exclusively for multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) or first-person shooter (FPS) titles. A radical smartphone for hardcore mobile gamers.

What do you think of the Asus ROG Phone? ASUS has stated that there will be a range of peripherals and extensions that make use of all these ports. This feature essentially boosts game bandwidth traffic every step of the way. This not just includes the obvious additions but also some new ones.

In the graphics department, you'll find a 6-inch 18:9 2160×1080 AMOLED display with a refresh rate of 90GHz and HDR support. The ROG Phone also includes X Mode, which kills all background processes and dedicates the available memory to games, increasing performance even more. The smartphone has no notch, giving gamers an uncut view of what's happening on the screen.

While we have internals out-of-the-way, this phone has much, much more to offer on the outside. A silver ROG logo occupies pride of place at the rear center though the biggest development here is that the RGB backlight can be customized via the dedicated app. As far as camera features go, the handset will be equipped with 12MP and 8MP ultra-wide sensors on the back and an 8MP front-facing camera.


The ROG Phone has a 90Hz display, which means it can refresh itself 90 time per second. Two on the side and one at the bottom. It won't be the case if the smartphone is being charged from the side. It is yet to be known if the particular feature can be programmed to perform some other actions. It all started with the Razer Phone; since then we had the Xiaomi Black Shark, Nubia Red Magic and now the Asus ROG Phone.

The second Asus ROG phone accessory is a gamepad for the device which can stream wirelessly to your TV. The ASUS ROG Phone has a 4,000mAh battery with support for ASUS HyperCharge fast charging technology. Also included is a larger 6,000mAh battery for extended gameplay. The docks also seem to be separate purchases, but at least the AeroActive Cooler going to come in the box. Called the ROG Phone - in line with Asus' ROG family of gaming-oriented products - it's got the specs to power the most demanding of mobile games.

Asus is also selling a dock that helps connect your ROG Phone to any monitor. While the ports on the sides will indeed provide support for additional accessories (which we'll talk about in a minute), ASUS says that the ports on the sides will allow users to play games in landscape mode without having to deal with an irritating cable that is sticking out from the bottom.

"The phone has 12 megapixels dual camera setup with f/1.8 aperture, 1.4µm pixel size, 1/2.55" Sony IMX363 sensor, LED flash, 83° field of view, PDAF, 4-axis, 4 stops optical image stabilization and AI Scene Detection. Display is also protected with Corning Gorilla Glass 6. The device has some insane hardware inside that can crush any game easily, so without wasting any time let's know more about it.
