Asus launches the ROG Phone 6 and 6 Pro to bring more gaming power to Android

Asus announced two new devices in its gaming-focused Republic of Gamers phone lineup, the ROG Phone 6 and the ROG Phone 6 Pro. They’re gamer phones and the upgraded displays look pretty impressive. Both models run Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 processor, and come with up to 512GB of storage. They have 6.78-inch OLED screens, the same size as the previous ROG Phone 5S, but their 165Hz refresh rates and 720Hz touch-sampling rates are both substantial improvements over the last model. They have 6,000mAh batteries, same as previous models, and an upgraded three-camera setup. The Phone 6 will start at €999 and the 6 Pro at €1,299. The ROG Phone 6 comes in black and white, and the 6 Pro only in white. The biggest difference between the two models is the second OLED screen on the back of the 6 Pro. You can also get a bit more RAM on the Pro model – the Phone 6 tops out at 16GB of memory, but the Pro will go up to 18GB. The company has been slowly refining the ROG Phone’s design over the last few models so it doesn’t scream “gamer phone!” quite so loudly.
