New Asus ROG Phone 6 renders show off the accessory-less phone in all its glory
The thickest of all ROG phone glory
What do gamers want? Why, large numbers, of course. Superlatives, if you can afford to sprinkle them. A lot was promised with the Tuesday launch of the Asus ROG Phone 6, including a 165Hz AMOLED display and a full-contact CPU cooling situation. The leaks also delivered render after frame after render, spoiling the goods. Now the curtain is up and we are left with pictures of the phone without accessories. It’s naked.
The pictures come from WinFuture and they show off the device in all its chunky, radiant glory. What thickness? According to specifications from China Telecom Equipment Certification Center, it will be around 10.39mm thick – surprisingly, an addition of 0.1mm thicker than the ROG Phone 5 and the thickest in the line of ROG phones. It will also be a gram heavier at 239g, but also a gram lighter than the ROG Phone 2 and 3. Other details include a 50MP main camera, rear-facing dot-matrix display and a maximum memory configuration of 18GB of RAM and 512GB of storage, although Roland Quandt of WinFuture reports that there will be a total of six configurations mixing 8GB, 12GB and 16GB of RAM with 128GB and 256 GB of storage. Of course, if you’ve been following news about this device, you’ll also know that Asus is touting the ROG Phone 6 as one of the first devices to feature Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset.
Previous render leaks have showcased the phone with two main detachable accessories: a cooling fan and a gamepad. Phone 5 has arrived in the US for $1,000, which we think is at least a viable floor to start with.
Expect all the details and word of even more accessories (including wireless headphones, as we don’t have enough on the market) with the launch stream starting July 5 at 8 a.m. HEY.
