Announced in June, Asus ROG Phone attracted much attention with its ambitious design and the promise of a Republic of Gamers style gaming experience
Not very different in terms of general technical specifications to other flagship ASUS ROG Phone is based on a Snapdragon 845 chipset operating at 2.96 GHz (compared to 2.8 GHz on other models). The device includes 8GB of memoprie RAM and puts in the spotlight a 6 "screen in 18: 9 format with Full HD + resolution and AMOLED panel. The configuration is supported with a 4,000 mAh battery. These components are found on other smartphones, but ASUS has a few special ones for each.
First, the processor runs at a high boost rate nearly 3 GHz thanks to a "3D vapor chamber" cooling system that dissipates better heat to the outside of the phone. ASUS ROG Phone is the only AMOLED device that runs at 90Hz at the factory, providing a better gaming experience and response time of just one millisecond (1ms), like gaming monitors.
For WiFi connections more stable and the possibility of mirroring on another non-latency monitor, ASUS uses the new WiGig 802.11ad standard, which needs a direct visual connection to work but has a much higher speed than a standard wireless connection
The camera, borrowed from the ZenFone 5, uses a dual rear-mounted (12 + 8 MP) and 8 -MP sensor on the front. The fingerprint sensor is on the back of the device, including the ROG logo that is illuminated with RGB LEDs, which can also be synchronized with other accessories compatible with ASUS Aura Sync or up to four other ROG phones.
The Asus ROG Phone is available in the store offer of a Finnish telephony operator, with a retail price of 999 euros, comparable to the iPhone X, listed in the same store for the price of 1050 euros. The offer is a bit more attractive to the subscriber, Asus ROG Phone can be ordered with a subscription of 27 euros
