A massive leak has seemingly revealed most of the key technical specifications of the Asus ROG Phone 6 ahead of its launch. Asus had already announced the official launch date for the ROG Phone 6, and even revealed a few of the critical tech specs of the upcoming device. According to Asus, the ROG phone 6 will be announced on Tuesday, July 5, at a virtual event in Taipei, Taiwan. The event will start at 8 p.m. local time, or 8 a.m. ET.
The ROG Phone series is Asus’ flagship gaming smartphone line that not only offers top-end components, but also specialized gaming-centric features that make them extremely popular among mobile gamers. The upcoming ROG Phone 6 will be an upgrade over last year’s ROG Phone 5s and is expected to continue with the tradition of offering insane specs, custom cooling, eye-catching RGB lighting, and more.
While Asus had already announced some of the technical specifications of its next-gen gaming phone, a new tweet by tipster Mukul Sharma has now revealed most of the key details about it. According to the post, the device will feature a 6.78-inch Full HD+ OLED display with a 165Hz refresh rate. This will be a significant upgrade over its predecessor, which had a 144Hz refresh rate. Also notable are the massive RAM and storage options. According to Sharma, the ROG Phone 6 will ship with up to 1TB of storage and up to 18GB of RAM. While the ROG Phone 5s Pro also shipped with an 18GB RAM option, the maximum storage on offer was limited to 512GB.
Fastest Processor, Massive Battery, And More
As for the processor, Asus had already confirmed that the device is powered by Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 SoC. The company also claims that it will be the first commercially-available smartphone with the new chipset. Other hardware components will reportedly include a sizeable 6,000 mAh dual-cell battery with support for 65W fast charging. On the software side of things, the phone is expected to run Android 12 out of the box. The ROG Phone 6 will reportedly be 10.39 mm thick and weigh 229 grams.
On the imaging front, the smartphone is said to sport a triple camera setup at the back, led by a 64 megapixel main sensor with “improved optics.” There’s no word on the rest of the image sensors on the upcoming phone. Sharma also claims that Asus will retain its trademark gaming triggers for its new offering and will launch at least three gaming accessories with the phone. It will be interesting to see how the Asus ROG Phone 6 turns out, but if earlier leaked designs and the latest leaked specs are anything to go by, it will be well worth waiting for.
