Asus Launches ROG Phone - Company's First Ever Gaming Smartphone

The ASUS ROG Thor 1200W Platinum PSU is the first from the company, which is based on a Seasonic design. The display is an 18:9 AMOLED panel with the super-impressive refresh rate of 90 Hz. With Asus' proprietary Armoury II software, all buttons on the mouse are customisable and it comes with three profiles stored directly on its internal storage. The main design highlight of the phone is its 3D vapor-chamber cooling system for keeping the device from overheating. Not only has Asus accounted for the awkwardness of using headphone and charging cables in landscape mode by providing ports on the right side, but the ROG Phone also takes mobile gaming a step further by offering the capability to imitate several varieties of gaming platform with a number of docking stations. The phone is armed with a massive 4,000mAh battery, which comes with Asus HyperCharge technology that can charge the phone up to 60 percent in 33 minutes.

Mobile gaming has come a long way since the likes of Angry Birds and Candy Crush.

Asus has worked hand in hand with Qualcomm to turn the ROG Phone into a one-of-a-kind gaming beefcake. It will probably be the most expensive of all the gaming smartphones available.

Unlike the Razer Phone, which is an obvious competitor, Asus made a decision to stick with a six inch 2160x1080 resolution HDR AMOLED screen on the Asus ROG Phone, but with just 90Hz refresh rate, which is just slightly below the 120Hz one on the Razer Phone. It also houses a Pixart PAW3327 optical sensor, which supports DPI up to 6200- more than enough sensitivity for most gamers. The TwinView Dock is a clamshell-type handheld console with its own display. You can fit up to a 280mm radiator in the roof, and a 360mm one in the front, so you would have plenty of room for a custom loop, or even a large AIO cooler. The phone's got a copper heat spreader and carbon cooling pads inside, and it all boils down (sorry) to 50% faster sustained clock speeds than a "standard" smartphone CPU, according to the company. The back has the famous ROG logo which lights up and can be customized as you wish.

Finally, there's the Gamevice Controller and WiGig Dock. The clamshell houses an extra 6,000 mAh battery so that you don't drain your phone's battery halfway through the day.

While TUF Gaming peripherals march our military-inspired motif across all of the across what you wear and wield, the GT501 chassis clads your PC components in matching armour. The Mobile Desktop Dock allows you to connect your phone to a 4K UHD monitor, mouse, and keyboard, while also connecting it to a Gigabit LAN and 5.1 channel surround sound. Price and release There's no word on what the price for the ROG Phone would be, but given the specs and the brand history of the Republic of Gamers products, we wouldn't expect it to be cheap. This includes an AeroActive Cooler, which helps keep the smartphone cool during intensive gaming.
