There was a time, when smartphones was only used for calling, and with time this thing started upgradung to video calling, photography and what not, but now Asus is ready to bring a new era in the world of smartphones, by releasing their new gaming smartphone, which is Asus ROG Phone.
Till now only laptop and desktops was used to play games, because the amount of power and graphics needed to play a game can only be supply by them. But this is the time to bring something new because its time to move on for something great.
Asus ROG Phone will be the first gaming smartphone of the world and the everything in this is perfect and powerful. There are many things, which only a smartphone can provide so, Asus has also added some mods to make this phone a complete gaming smartphone. So, let’s start with the specifications of this phone.
Asus ROG Phone – In-box Content
To make this phone completely different from other smartphone, everything from box to features, controls to mods has been improved. This phone comes in triangular designer box, which is compact, tough and stylish.
Inside this box you get a Asus ROG Phone, USB Type-C cable fast charger and the most interesting thing, which differentiate this gaming smartphone from other smartphone is a external adapter, this adapter can be connected to the phone with the help of mod connector slot, which is on the right arm of the phone.
This adapter contains a USB Type-C slot, 3.5 mm audio jack and an external fan mounted adapter, which will cool down your phone, while playing to give an flawless and heat free experience.
Asus ROG Phone – Display and Design
This Asus ROG Phone is mainly designed to attract gamers as it has strong build quality and attractive rear panel, which has a unique designed fingerprint sensor like a parallelogram and also a RBG coloured logo, which changes its colour, while playing and these lightings can also be controlled manually according to your choice.
With this it also has two air controllers on the right edge of the phone, which basically gives a feel of joy stick, which is really important to build a gaming smartphone. Overall, this phone has a rock solid model and a attractive design.
A gaming platform needs good display too, which is very well fitted in this phone. This Asus smartphone comes with the 6” AMOLED display of 18:9 ratio with 2160 X 1080 pixels. This display has the pixel response time of 1 ms, which is amazing and also supports 10 points multi-touch and glove touch.
So, overall this section is almost perfect for a gaming smartphone, because this display will provide you awesome viewing angles and colorings, which makes this phone best out of best.
Asus ROG Phone – Processor, RAM and Internal storage
This Asus smartphone has powerful 2.96Ghz Octa-Core Qualcomm Snapdragon 845, which provides sufficient power for the fluency of any task in phone. Basically, this chipset has been installed to provide lag-free operation not only in mobile gaming but also, with active mods.
This powerful processor has got company of LPDDR4X 8 GBs RAM, which is good for gamers. Because gamers never satisfies with a single game, they always need a new and better game, and a better game will ask for good memory and for processor as well and both of these sections are very well applied in this gaming smartphone.
In terms of internal storage it is best, because now a days an awesome game usually requires some Giga bytes of space and if you don’t have much space for that you will surely leave it. So, to free you from this tension Asus has given two variants, one is 128 GB and another is of 512 GB. There is no option of increasing it via memory card.
According to my personal opinion Asus should have also think about 256 GB of storage, because surely there will be a huge difference between the price ranges of these to variants, but if 256 GB variant was there then the margin of price difference could be decrease.
Asus ROG Phone – Camera and Battery
As Asus ROG Phone is a gaming smartphone so, they didn’t have put more focus on this filed. But, it doesn’t means that they have skipped it, this phone has dual rear cameras of 12 MP + 8 MP, with auto phase detection and LED flash and also you can record 4K videos at 30 frames per second.
It has an average secondary camera of 8 MP, which really wants upgradation. The features and other specifications of this secondary camera is under curtains, but we will update you just after its release.
Finally, in battery backup there is no issue, in this smartphone you will get a Non-removable Li-Ion battery of 4000 mAh, which supports fast charging of Type-C 2.0.
Asus ROG Phone – MODS
This Asus smartphone has been designed to provide all the comforts to gamers. So, to improve the mobile gaming experience some interesting mods also have been included, which will surely excite you.
Although, the names of these mods is yet to be revealed, but there functions and prototype has been revealed.
There are total four different mods for different functions has been given. The first mod is an adapter, which comes with the device itself in its box. This adapter is basically designed to charge your phone while playing and also for cooling down the device.
This adapter attaches to the rear panel of the phone. It consists, charging slot, headphone jack and cooling fan. Next mod is a joystick mounted mod, which completely turns your into a joystick, the installation of this mod is same as the adapter, it has two joysticks, and four front bottoms like a gaming remote.
