Asus ROG Phone uses a combination of 2.5 D Corning Gorilla Glass for the front and 3D Corning Gorilla Glass for the back of the phone that is made precisely by highlighting diamond cuts and copper details. Its metal and water resistant body with a combination of hardened yet very comfortable construction in the handle provides a more exciting gaming experience.
ROG Phone uses an ultra-fast AMOLED screen with a 90Hz refresh rate and 1ms jaw-dropping pixel response time for smoother, blur-free visuals. With a wide color range of 108.6% DCI-P3 (sRGB 145%), the color is also very lively, so the game will look more dynamic, and HDR visuals with a 100,000: 1 contrast ratio help sharpen every detail hidden in the shadow.
This phone is also equipped with a GameCool system that will continue to control the device so it doesn’t heat up when we play. This is also enhanced by copper heat spreaders and carbon cooling pads on the circuit board for maximum cooling performance. Assisted by AeroActive Cooler for extra and instant cooling. The four-speed fan system can cool the surface of the phone up to 4.7° C, keeping the cellphone in both hands cool during use.
With an additional USB-C connector installed next to the cellphone that supports direct charging, HDMI output, gigabit LAN and headphones. And when the AeroActive Cooler is used, we can use the side-mounted USB-C port and a 3.5 mm headphone jack for simultaneous gameplay. Side connectors can also be used for exclusive expansion modules, including the Mobile Desktop Dock and TwinView Dock.
In addition, Asus also provides ASUS Professional Dock to expand the use of ROG phones. Where the Gigabit Ethernet port allows us to enjoy a fast and stable wired network connection, while the USB port allows us to connect the mouse and keyboard. The connector cable length is 60 cm.
ROG Phone is also designed with three unique ultrasonic AirTrigger touch sensors. Two of these ultra-responsive sensors are optimized as triggers left/right at the top of the screen for landscape mode games (the third is designed for use in portrait mode), and they can be fully programmed to activate any commands available on the screen such as aiming, shooting , selection of inventory, directing, navigation, etc. We can use both fingers to control the flow of the game casually, because AirTriggers uses ultrasonic technology, which can be done with a light touch. ROG Phone also has sophisticated haptic actuators built for powerful force feedback.
For sound, Asus presents a 24-bit/192KHz audio engine that supports Hi-Res Audio files. Whether using speakers or headphones, the latest DTS: X Ultra 1.0 provides highly realistic 3D audio rendering for all types of games or virtual/augmented reality (VR/AR), which displays immersive 7.1-channel surround sound with increased bass responses. We can also enjoy clear high-definition audio via Bluetooth. Thus the audio from this phone is truly extraordinary and immersive, with ultra-powerful front-facing stereo speakers driven by intelligent amplifiers that maximize volume and minimize distortion.
So that the performance of the phone remains maximum, also provided a special X Mode. With just one tap, we can free all RAM from the application running in the background and dedicate it to the game, optimize the game’s data processing performance, and maximize AeroActive Cooling efficiency. X mode also prevents RAM-eating and battery-sapping application activities, based on a list of customizable applications.
In terms of battery, ROG Phone not only supports Quick Charge 4.0 fast charging, but when we use the bundled mobile power adapter, we also benefit from ASUS HyperCharge, a direct charging technology that places the charging circuit inside the power adapter of the phone. This provides more power (up to 20W) for shorter and safer charging times, and also means the phone stays cooler when charging. For maximum flexibility, we can also charge ROG Mobile phones with any standard USB-C charger. With a 4000 mAh capacity battery, we can play Wi-Fi gameplay up to 7.2 hours.
The ROG Phone’s dual-camera system uses the latest hardware. With the very light-sensitive main camera of the Sony Ericsson IMX363, the 120° wide-angle rear camera, and the 8 MP front camera (F2.0), it’s enough to remove the limit on creativity. This is supported by AI Scene Detection, AI Photo Learning, Real-time Photography, Real-time Beautification, and features such as Instant cameras switching, phase-detection autofocus, 4-axis, 4 stops optical image stabilization, and flash LEDs. We can also take advantage of several available modes such as Beauty, GIF Animation, Panorama, and 8 various filters.
This smart phone also supports Rear fingerprint sensor (0.3 seconds unlock, supports 5 fingerprints), Face recognition, Accelerator, E-Compass, Gyroscope, Proximity sensor, Ambient light sensor, Ultrasonic sensor for AirTriggers dan grip press.
