ROG Phone 6 series launches, packs 165Hz AMOLED screens and Snapdragon 8+ Gen1 chips


The ROG Phone 6 and 6 Pro have officially made their debut. They are an updated from last year’s ROG Phone 5 series and come with slightly better specifications. Both devices will pack a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen1 chip with LPDDR5 RAM and up to 512GB UFS 3.1 storage. Their display is still a 6.78-inch 2448 x 1080 Samsung E4 AMOLED panel but refresh rates have been upped to 165Hz.

Cooling has been improved with the new GameCool6 cooling system. The chip now has a BN Thermal Compound and larger 3D Vapor Chamber and Graphite Sheets in addition to the new AeroActive Cooler 6.
