Teased back in Computex 2018, it seems the ASUS’ ROG Phone will hit the Philippines on October 28, 2018 at ESGS 2018 based on the teaser the brand posted on their official Facebook page.
As the first smartphone to carry the Republic of Gamers brand, the ROG Phone aims to revolutionize the mobile gaming platform. To deliver the best gaming experience possible, the ROG Phone comes with a specially binned Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 clocked at 2.96GHz instead of the more standard 2.8GHz.
To dissipate heat from the higher clocked SoC, the ROG Phone has a Vapor Chamber Cooling as well as an AeroActive Cooler to deliver a cooling gaming experience while delivering the best framerates possible.
The display on the smartphone is a 6.0-inch AMOLED screen with a FullHD+ resolution and a 90Hz refresh rate. ASUS claims that colors will also be delivered with accuracy with the ROG Phone’s screen having 108% DCI-P3 and support for HDR.
