The Asus ROG Phone 6D series is making a worldwide appearance after several days of teasers. Two models, the ROG Phone 6D and the ROG Phone 6D Ultimate, make up the range.
Asus’ new gaming smartphones are powered by MediaTek’s newest flagship processor rather than Qualcomm’s, as teases and leaks indicate.
They also have some modest changes when they arrive.
Let’s take a look at the features of these phones, as well as their cost and availability.
Asus ROG Phone 6D Series Specifications
A MediaTek Dimensity 900 Plus SoC is included in ROG Phone 6D and ROG Phone 6D Ultimate.
For those unaware, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 processor has been powering the ROG Phone 6 and ROG Phone 6 Pro for quite some time.
Also, newer devices come with LPDDR5x RAM rather than LPDDR5 RAM, but the storage is the same (UFS 3.1).
However, the highest configuration is limited to 16 GB of RAM for the 6D Ultimate and 12 GB of RAM for the 6D, respectively.
By contrast, up to 16GB and 18GB of RAM may be available for the regular 6 and 6 Pro, respectively.
Instead of Bluetooth 5.2, newer versions offer Bluetooth 5.3 connectivity.
Finally, the 6D Ultimate has a slot on the back that can be unlocked and used to lower the temperature with the AeroActive Cooler accessory (included in the box).
The official name of this innovative cooling system is AeroActive Portal.
Other features of the ROG Phone 6D series are the same as the ROG Phone 6 series except for the changes mentioned above.
Accordingly, it has a 6.78-inch AMOLED display with a resolution of 2448 x 1080 pixels, a refresh rate of up to 165Hz, an in-screen fingerprint sensor and Corning Gorilla Glass Victus protection.
On the back, there’s a triple-camera setup with a 50MP Sony IMX766 main sensor, a 13MP ultra-wide sensor, and a 5MP macro sensor.
While a 12MP camera for selfies and video calls sits on the front of the phones. In terms of connectivity, there are dual SIM, 5G, WiFi 6E, GNSS and NFC possibilities.
The smartphones also have an ROG Vision display on the back, two stereo speakers, three microphones, an IPX4 rating and two USB Type-C connections.
ROG UI and Zen UI are available and Android 12 is booted. Two Android updates and two years of security updates are promised by Asus.
Finally, a 6,000mAh battery supporting 65W wired fast charging powers the gadgets.
