The Asus ROG Phone 6 Pro arrives to establish itself as the fastest Android gaming terminal on the market with its 18 GB LPDDR5 and Snapdragon 8+ Gen1 CPU. And it is that talking about specifications is the most important thing for a phone like this because it will design to give the maximum in games, with a 165 Hz screen with 720 Hz touch sampling, enthusiast-level stereo audio, 6000 mAh battery or gaming accessories such as the AeroActive Cooler, six modules.
Its design will not leave anyone indifferent; made of glass and aluminium with an aggressive back that has an integrated screen and exclusive ROG covers. Its weight will be the only problem in daily use since it will equip with a triple rear camera with an IMX766 sensor, a front camera, Wi-Fi 6E connectivity and Android 12 optimized to the maximum.
From the first moment, Asus shows us that we are facing a terminal very different from the others, and that is that the Asus ROG Phone 6 Pro arrives in a hexagonal rigid cardboard box-type case. Within its original appearance, we have multiple sections for the accessories of the terminal, its content being the following:

- SIM card removal tool
- 65W power adapter
- USB-C to USB-C cable
- aero casing
- ROG AR Card
Gaming Design Standing Out Wherever You Go
The Asus ROG Phone 6 Pro shows all its intentions by adopting the most gaming design we have ever seen, with all the ingredients such as separating lines, RGB buttons of different colours and even a screen on the back. Of course, all this has a cost, and it will carry around a flashy terminal like no other, something that many will love and discard for not being “mainstream”, but the bet is more than successful.
The terminal is made of glass, with Gorilla Glass Victus on the front and Gorilla Glass 3 on the back, thus avoiding scratches. The frames for their part will make of aluminium, available only in white for the 6 Pro version and black for the standard version. To store so much connectivity and the 6000 mAh battery, the thickness will increase to 10.3 mm, a very thick and heavy terminal with 239 g. It means that it is not the most comfortable to carry in your hand or pocket, but, once again, it is the cost of having so much power.

We will start analyzing the screen area, which uses much thicker frames than flagship terminals in its price range. The front camera will integrat into the upper frame instead of a hole in the screen or a notch. The thickness also has another explanation: equipping relatively large speakers on the edges and improving the use of the screen with the terminal in landscape mode for gaming. In addition, it offers a special coating that repels water and therefore sweats so that the tactile action is not affect these conditions.
The rear area is fun thanks to that aggressive design with black lines dividing the central area, with a beautiful pearl white colour predominating. Right, where the power button is, we have a “Dare to Play” RGB lighting area, but the most striking thing will be the ROG Vision OLED screen integrated into a black visor with enough gaming details. The camera module is also very original, highlighting its shape and black colour, approximately 1 mm out of the central plane. It has aluminium frames and a horizontally aligned sensor layout in conjunction with the flash.
Next, we see the aluminium frames of the Asus ROG Phone 6 Pro, where the essential elements of interaction are concentrated. This time the speaker output will not be in the frames as usual but on the edges of the screen, facing the user to improve the experience and immersion while playing. Again, they will be two fine and elongated slots, which we must be careful to keep clean.
The Fastest Screen
The Asus ROG Phone 6 Pro would not be a gaming terminal if it did not have the most potent AMOLED screen we can see in the smartphone market. A 6.78-inch Samsung panel in 19.5: 9 format improves its use in landscape mode, offering a native FHD + resolution of 2340x1080p. This generates a density of 380 dpi, keeping it in a medium/high position.
Its raw power breaks records with a maximum refresh rate of 165Hz, a minimum pixel rate of 1ms and a touch sampling rate of 720Hz, thus generating a touch latency of only 23ms. This 165 Hz will come by default in dynamic or VRR mode; the system will adjust the refresh rate to save the battery, starting from 60 Hz. Likewise, from the configuration section, we can set several levels of fixed frequency: 60, 90, 120, 144 and 165 Hz.
