Asus ROG gaming smartphone with 90Hz display refresh rate, overclocked CPU launched

Asus ROG gaming smartphone with 90Hz display refresh rate, overclocked CPU launched

This lighting can of course be customised through Aura Sync, but, in a revolutionary move, Asus has included a button so that you can turn the lights off.

Under the hood, ASUS is turning it up to 11 with a speed-binned Snapdragon 845 processor that's clocked at a higher 2.96GHz.

But that's not all.

There's plenty of phones on the market, but not much in the way of specific gaming phones. We'll keep you updated with ROG Phone news right here.

What do you think of the Asus ROG Phone? The AeroActive cooling clip is attached. But without the talented first-party and vast third-party support that the Switch enjoys, it's going to be a tough sell to get gamers to splash out on a mobile phone, that can do it all hardware-wise, rather than two independently capable devices.

The ROG Phone is also Asus' first smartphone that comes with 512GB inbuilt storage, something that is rarely seen for now.

Asus was so confident that it published a number of benchmarks to support its claims. With a massive 8 GB RAM, the smartphone will also feature a dual rear camera with 12 megapixel and 8 megapixel sensors and the front facing selfie camera of 8 megapixels. The RAM on the phone happens to be 8 GB and there also is a 512 GB of internal storage variant as well. "The 14" display is a FullHD (1080p) IPS panel with 144Hz refresh rate and 3ms response time. Audio comes from a DTS Headphone:X-rated audio engine. In short, the ROG Phone seems to be "the" smartphone gamers have been waiting for.

Seconds later, she threw her head back after serving a booming ace that flew past Buzarnescu before she could react. In the decisive tiebreak, Osaka twice had set point, but finally gave away the match with a double fault.

What's the hardest part about playing console-quality games on your phone? Several different game controllers are also available to increase speed and accuracy over using the touchscreen, while the phone itself has two touch-sensitive AirTriggers built into the left-hand side of the device for use in landscape orientation.

Asus isn't known for its high-end phones.

And if that isn't enough, then you'll need a cooling solution, one of the accessories that will ship with the ROG Phone. More details include Type-C, HDMI and USB ports are supported, while the 4,000mAh battery can be charged to 85% in a little over an hour.

To keep all that mobile silicon cool Asus has fitted the ROG Phone with the GameCool 3D vapor-chamber cooling system to improve the natural heat dissipation properties of the phone itself.

The other essential specs include a 4,000mAh battery, a side-mounted USB-C port, and a 3.5mm headphone jack. Lastly, a WiGig Dock will let you mirror your phone's display wirelessly to your living room TV, giving you a larger screen to play on in a jiffy.

Another dock allows users to connect the ROG Phone to a monitor, mouse, and keyboard, and use it as a PC. This is similar to Samsung's DeX dock that does the same thing. The screen also has a refresh rate of 90Hz, making it only the second phone after Razer to feature a display with that refresh rate, allowing to output frames faster than other smartphones screens. Not only is it good for viewing a second screen while gaming (a mobile Twitch stream, perhaps) ROG said that it is working with game developers to optimize their games for the split-screen technology.
