ASUS has officially announced the newest additions to its current flagship series: the ROG Phone 6D and ROG Phone 6D Ultimate both equipped with the top-of-the-line MediaTek Dimensity 9000+ chipsets.
The duo got the same 6.78-inch AMOLED display with buttery smooth 165Hz refresh rate with 10-bit color and HDR10+ capabilities.
Both of the ASUS ROG Phone 6D and 6D Ultimate feature GameCool 6 thermal system, and AirTrigger 6 for added gaming controls. The key differences between these devices are the configurations and back shell design—the standard option is capped at 16GB/256GB with ‘Aura RGB’ on its back while the Ultimate overtakes with up to 16GB/512GB with the ‘ROG Vision’ that displays sleek animation and other info.
