Razer kicked off the idea of an enthusiast-focused gaming phone, but the new Asus ROG Phone cranks things to 11 by swiping just as much inspiration from fire-breathing PC builds. This handset packs “binned” CPUs with overclocked performance, a massive 512GB of storage, vapor chamber cooling, a DCI-3 rated AMOLED panel with a 90Hz refresh rate and 1ms response time, and even customizable RGB lights.
But Asus is thinking outside of its PC-centric box, too: The ROG Phone also offers nifty mobile-first features, such as ultrasonic shoulder buttons and a variety of docking options that transform the device into a switch-like gaming platform, an ad-hoc PC, and more.
The Asus ROG Phone sounds seriously drool-worthy on paper. One thing it doesn’t have, though? Release information. The street date and final price remain a mystery.
