Asus ROG phone hardware
The Asus ROG Phone has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 which is overclocked to 2.96 GHz, 8 GB of RAM, a 4,000 mAh battery, and 128 or 512 GB of storage. This Asus ROG gaming smartphone is by far the highest specced Android phone in the market today even beating One Plus 6. It has a 90hz display with AMOLED, which fits somewhere between Galaxy S9 and Razor phones. AMOLED displays traditionally have much better color and contrast than LCD’s.
The logo at the back lights up. The cool thing about that is you can customize the RGB light on the back. You can do everything from a color cycle to static, breathing, strobing and so on. The rear cameras are dual 12 and 8-megapixel shooters and have some AR capabilities. The front camera is 8 megapixels. A fingerprint sensor is placed at the back of the smartphone. The Type-C USB port on the smartphone has been placed on the left side to make it comfortable and hassle-free when you have plugged in and playing games at the same time in landscape mode.
It comes along with a functioning fan which cools down your mobile when you do long-hours gaming like any other cooling pad. You can actually hear the noise of the fan. It mounts to the back of the phone. It includes an additional Type-C port and 3.5mm headphone jack so that you can keep your phone’s battery charged throughout. Asus has positively not only focused on specifications but also the comfortability.
It gives you the temperature and also the clock speed of CPU, GPU. You can also adjust the fan speed of the device also just like a typical gaming computer. A lot of this is controlled through a game genie button for speeding the system up, using the air triggers, doing key mapping (You can actually connect this device to a doc and use keyboard or mobile to play mobile games). You can also go live from there, record your gameplay. A DOC helps to connect your ROG phone to any screen.
We expected it to be priced around more than Rs 50,000 in India. Xiaomi’s Black Shark has been launched in China with a price tag of CNY 2,999 (Approx Rs 31,000) whereas the Razor Phone is priced at $700 (around Rs 48,000). When launched, Asus ROG smartphone will positively take over all the gaming smartphones through its performance.
