The ASUS ROG Phone – Everything You Need To Know!

ASUS ROG Phone Key Features + Accessories


ASUS ROG Phone Key Features

Here is a summary of the ROG Phone’s key features, as explained by ASUS (with most of the marketing hyperbole edited out) :

Gaming Performance

ROG Phone runs on a specially-selected octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chip that is speed-binned for maximum performance — delivering sustained clock speeds of up to 2.96 GHz. It is paired with  8 GB of RAM and either 128 GB or 512 GB of fast UFS 2.1 flash storage.

To prevent thermal throttling, the ROG Phone features an exclusive GameCool cooling system that uses a highly-efficient 3D vapor-chamber with a 16X-larger surface area for heat dissipation. It is paired with a copper heat spreader and carbon cooling pads on the circuit board for maximum cooling performance.

It also comes with a detachable external AeroActive Cooler for an extra cooling boost when the going gets really tough.

The ROG Phone also comes with a special X Mode. A single tap frees up all background RAM and dedicates it to your game, optimizes game-data processing performance, and maximizes the efficiency of the AeroActive Cooler. X Mode also prevents RAM-eating and battery-sapping app activity, based on a customizable list of apps.

90 Hz AMOLED Display

The ROG Phone features a large 6-inch AMOLED display with a 90 Hz refresh rate and a 1 ms pixel response time for blur-free gaming. It also boasts a wide 108.6% DCI-P3 color gamut, with high-dynamic-range (HDR) capability and a 10,000:1 contrast ratio. To protect your investment, this AMOLED display is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 6.

Gaming Controls

The ROG Phone is designed to give gamers total control and a more console-like experience, with three unique ultrasonic AirTrigger touch sensors.

Two of these AirTrigger sensors are optimized as left / right triggers at the top of the display for landscape-mode gaming (the third is designed for use in portrait mode), and they’re fully programmable to activate any available on-screen action: aiming, firing, inventory selection.

Gamers can now free up two extra fingers to control gameplay, giving them the edge over their thumb-bound rivals. AirTriggers use ultrasonic technology, so they only need a feather-light touch — just 20 grams compared to rival touch-sensitive controls that need up to 4X the force. An advanced haptic actuator provides a powerful force-feedback system for a more immersive gameplay.

Charging Convenience

Charging a smartphone while playing can make gaming impossibly awkward. It has an optimised layout for landscape-mode gaming. There’s an additional side-mounted custom USB-C connector that supports direct charging, HDMI output, gigabit LAN and headphones.

And when the AeroActive Cooler is deployed, it provides a side-mounted USB-C port and 3.5mm headphone jack for unhindered gameplay. The side connector’s also used for the exclusive expansion modules, including the Mobile Desktop Dock and TwinView Dock.

ASUS Aura RGB Lighting

This is ASUS’ first smartphone to feature their proprietary ASUS Aura RGB lighting. Its illuminated rear ROG logo can display a whole rainbow of lighting schemes: static, breathing, strobing or color cycling. Lighting effects can be triggered with phone events such as incoming calls, notifications and more.

Gaming Audio

It has two front-facing speakers that are driven by individual smart amplifiers to maximize volume and minimize distortion. It is powered by an audio engine that supports 24-bit/192Khz Hi-Res Audio playback. DTS Headphone:X provides theater-quality virtual surround-sound over headphones, and there’s support for high-definition audio via Bluetooth.

Long-Lasting Battery

Powering all that is a high-capacity 4,000 mAh battery. The bundled power adapter supports ASUS HyperCharge, a direct-charge technology that delivers more power (up to 20 W) for shorter, safer charge times. It also lets the ROG Phone stay cooler when it’s charging.

TwinView Dock

The TwinView Dock turns it into a dual-screen console for the ultimate gaming and live-streaming experience. It has a 6-inch AMOLED (2160 x 1080) auxiliary screen that’s great for split-screen live-streaming, extended game display or group communication.

It also packs a front-facing quad-speaker system, two extra physical trigger buttons, dual-haptic force-feedback engine, an enhanced cooling system and a high-capacity 6000 mAh extended battery pack.

Mobile Desktop Dock

The Mobile Desktop Dock allows gamers to connect ROG Phone to an external 4K UHD monitor, mouse and keyboard. ROG Phone can be used as an auxiliary display, hooked up to a wired gigabit LAN and drive a 5.1-channel surround-sound system via the SP/DIF output.

Gamevice + WiGig Dock

With the Gamevice controller and the WiGig Dock — using 60GHz 802.11ad Wi-Fi — it morphs into a portable console with a full inventory of physical gaming controls and ultra-low-latency wireless display connectivity.

It packs dual analog joysticks, left and right fire triggers and bumpers, a D-pad, along with A,B,X,Y and L3, R3 buttons.
