With the advancing technology, the virtual gaming has also evolved quite a lot. Further, with the introduction of personal computers, the virtual gaming has reached a new level. And now, after the PC, the smartphone gaming is hitting next level. With the introduction of smartphones, the traditional meaning of a mobile phone has changed a lot. Now, the mobile phones are not only used for making calls, but a lot of things are done through. Even people control their business just from a smartphone. However, in this article, we are going to talk about the gaming smartphone from ASUS, ROG phone.
Before, we also saw a gaming phone from Razer called the Razer phone. Now, the ASUS also introduced another gaming-centric phone, named as ROG. Similar to ASUS’s high-end ROG laptops, the new ROG gaming smartphone is a real deal here. The Razer phone is also a beast, but the ROG phone took the mobile gaming to the next level.
The ROG phone comes with 90Hz 6-inch AMOLED screen and glowing ROG logo with customizable lightening in the back. The company used vapor-chamber cooling, three USB -C ports and a special touch-sensitive aide that could function as shoulder buttons, while in the landscape mode.
Under the hood, there will be an 8GB of RAM, up to 512GB of storage, a big 4000mAh battery. There is also a Snapdragon 845, which is common SoC in most of the flagships. However, in ROG phone the SoC is overclocked, that can hit 2.96GHz, instead of usual 2.8GHz max. The ROG Phone even supports 802.11 WiGig connectivity, so you can stream gameplay wirelessly to a nearby TV or monitor using Asus’ companion WiGig Dock. In short, the ROG Phone might just be the most powerful Android phone on the planet.
Another interesting fact is that there are three USB- Type C port. When holding the phone in the portrait mode, there is one USB-C port, at its usual place for typical stuff like charging and data transfer. But on the sides of the devices, there are two more USB-C ports which can be used to add accessories, like vapor-chamber cooling device, etc. Besides, while playing the game in landscape mode, you can have a place to plug in a power cable without messing up your grip.
