ASUS has just rolled out the new ROG Phone 6D and 6D Ultimate, the latest additions to the ROG Phone 6 line released a few months ago. The latest ROG Phone 6D Series comes included with a different SoC than the original ROG Phone 6 Series and an all-new thermal design for better gaming performance.
The latest flagship MediaTek Dimensity 9000+ 5G chipset powers the ROG Phone 6D and 6D Ultimate. The Dimensity 9000+ chipset provides flagship 5G experiences, with up to 3.2 GHz CPU speeds and up to 16 GB of LPDDR5X RAM and 512 GB ROM storage.
The ROG Phone 6D Ultimate features an all-new AeroActive Portal, a heat-dissipation ‘door’ that works in tandem with the AeroActive Cooler 6 and the heat-dissipation fins on the ultrathin vapour chamber to introduce cool air to the chipset for exceptional cooling performance. When the AeroActive Portal is activated, the thermal surface area increases by up to 9X and the thermal efficiency increases by up to 20%.
The new ROG Phone Series features a 6.78-inch 165Hz AMOLED HDR10+ display with a touch-sampling rate of 720Hz. The refresh rate of the display is adjustable and can be set to 60Hz, 90Hz, 120Hz, 144Hz, or 165Hz. ASUS also collaborated with Pixelworks, a leading visual-processing company, to fine-tune the colour accuracy of the ROG Phone 6D Series’ display.
The AirTrigger 6 has also been updated and now supports a variety of gestures, including Dual Action, Press and Lift, and Gyroscope Aiming. The 6D Series’ GameFX audio system includes symmetrical dual speakers that fire forward for balanced stereo sound effects, as well as a 3.5 mm headphone jack.
The sound was optimised in collaboration with Dirac, a Swedish digital audio company. The ROG Phone 6D Series includes the Dirac Virtuo spatial audio solution, which employs patented algorithms to enable immersive stereo sound from the smartphone’s built-in speakers while improving the overall sound quality of the speakers.
The new ROG Phone Series has a triple-camera system that includes a flagship Sony IMX766 50MP main wide-angle camera, an ultrawide 13MP secondary camera, and a macro camera. The camera system includes features like HDR10+ Video Mode. A 12MP selfie camera is located on the front of the device.
Both ROG Phones are also powered by a 6,000mAh battery that comes with multiple battery-cares features for enhanced battery protection. ASUS also included a 65W HyperCharge charger in the box.
