It may be a phone noone aske for but it sure looks different than anything else we've seen. It uses 60Hz Wi-Fi to connect to a larger display, and it can stream games from the ROG Phone to the TV.
As you would expect, the ROGPhone is undoubtedly a performance beast. Every Asus ROGphone comes with an AeroActive Cooler packed inside the box. The ROG logo is also lit by LEDs and can change color in a variety of ways, including static, breathing, strobing, and color cycling. The back is also covered in Corning Gorilla Glass, just like the front. Additionally, this 8-antenna router also uses the latest 802.11ax Wi-Fi standard, giving it more than twice the data rates of a router running on the current 802.11ac Wi-Fi standard. The side ports also work as connectors for some of the accessories. DTS Headphone:X provides theater-quality virtual surround-sound over headphones, and there's support for high-definition audio via Bluetooth.
The phone has three ultrasonic pressure sensitive zones.
The phone will feature an "X Mode" which will raise "the minimum clock speed to keep the CPU on its toes", while confining "tasks to the chip's four fastest cores". The good thing is that this AeroActive cooler also includes USB-C port and a headphone jack so it don't interfere with your hands on the bottom edge. The other two are on the two corners in landscape mode.
The Snapdragon 845 in the ROG phone runs at 2.96GHz instead of the normal 2.8GHz. It's mated to 8GB LPDDR4 RAM with onboard storage options of 128GB or 512GB. A "GameCool" vapor-chamber is included to pull the heat away from the chipset and distribute it along the phone. ASUS says that the 20W fast charging using the HyperCharge tech will provide 60% of the 4,000mAh battery capacity in 33 minutes, or to 85% in just over an hour. "The 6" AMOLED display has a 90Hz refresh rate and a 1ms response time. The company claims that the device covers 108.6 percent of the DCI-P3 colour gamut with a dedicated HDR mode for gaming.
The accessory support is quite extensive. There's a Mobile Desktop Dock complete with a set of ports that allow users to hook up a 4K monitor, Gigabit Ethernet, 5.1-channel speakers, and multiple USB peripherals to turn the ROG Phone into a psuedo-desktop computer. Other announced modules include the Mobile Desktop Dock and the TwinView Dock. Nonetheless, the battery also supports Quick Charge 3.0 and Quick Charge 4.0 as well. The pricing and availability details are yet to be announced by the company.
With the release of popular competitive mobile games like PUBG and Fortnite on mobile, there is renewed interest in "gaming phones". However, the whole gamer aesthetic and silly brandings are as kitsch as they get.
The GameVice controller mimics the feel of gaming on a console.
Lastly, it's likely none of this is going to be cheap, so the whole value proposition is already out the window. ASUS really pulled out the stops with accessories, knowing that gamers like to do stuff that normal users won't do. ASUS has jumped on that bandwagon today as well with the launch of its ROG Phone at Computex 2018. Of course, it brings more money (ka-ching!) to the company.
