Asus launches the ROG Phone 6 and 6 Pro

It might be an overkill, but that screen looks great

Asus has 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 for people who like to game, 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 price of Phone 6 will start at €999 and the 6 Pro at €1,299 — they’re ready tow launch in the UK and Europe first, and Asus says they’ll come to the US, India and elsewhere later.

The ROG Phone 6 is available 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, which is sort of cool looking but not generally very practical. 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 regular Phone 6 model will probably be enough for most people.
