Asus ROG Phone 6 specs announced ahead of July 5 launch, Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 SoC suggested
Asus ROG Phone 6 specifications were announced a few days before the official launch. The new ROG Phone is said to feature a 165Hz OLED display and an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 SoC. The gaming phone is also expected to debut alongside three new accessories from the Taiwanese company. The ROG Phone 6 will be the successor to the ROG Phone 5 which debuted last year. Asus also expanded its lineup of ROG phones last year with the introduction of the ROG Phone 5 in August.
Tipster Mukul Sharma has share the alleged Asus ROG Phone 6 specs on Twitter. The details emerged a few weeks before the official launch of the gaming phone scheduled for July 5.
Asus ROG Phone 6 specs (expected)
According to the tipster, the Asus ROG Phone 6 will feature a 6.78-inch Full HD+ OLED display with a 165Hz refresh rate. This is an upgrade over the ROG Phone 5 that came with the same 6.78-inch display but with a 144Hz refresh rate. The ROG Phone 6 is also said to have a Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 SoC, along with up to 18GB of RAM and a maximum of 1TB of onboard storage. The ROG Phone 5 also had up to 18GB of RAM but a maximum of 512GB of internal storage. Moreover, the new gaming phone is supposed to run Android 12, which is an upgrade over Android 11 available on the ROG Phone 5 at the time of its launch.
Asus has reportedly offered a 64-megapixel main camera on the ROG Phone 6 which will include improved optics and support for optical image stabilization (OIS). However, the improvements are yet to be revealed. Importantly, the ROG Phone 5 also comes with a 64-megapixel main camera.
The ROG Phone 6 is said to have “advanced gaming triggers” which could help deliver an improved user experience. The phone is also expected to sport a 6,000mAh dual-cell battery which is said to include 65W fast charging support. The charging speed was recently suggested by an alleged listing on Chinese website 3C. Additionally, the claimed battery capacity and charging speed are identical to the ROG Phone 5.
Alongside the ROG Phone 6, Asus is rumored to have the ROG Phone 6 Pro in the works which will debut alongside the regular model next month. Some 2D renders purportedly showing the design of ROG Phone 6 and ROG Phone 6 Pro emerged earlier this year to suggest their development ahead of the official announcement.
