ASUS line of gaming smartphones – the ROG Phone – received this year’s update in the form of two models, ASUS ROG Phone 6 and 6 Pro.

They are quite similar to each other, they have the same 6.78″ AMOLED display with a resolution of 2448×1080 pixels, a peak brightness of 1200 nits, and 111.23% coverage of the DCI-P3 color space. The refresh rate is 165 Hz, and the touch screen sampling rate is 720 Hz, which is a noticeable improvement compared to last year’s ROG Phone 5 (144 and 360 Hz, respectively).

Both models, ASUS ROG Phone 6 and 6 Pro, are based on the same chipset – Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 with Adreno 730 video module, the battery capacity is also the same – 6,000 mAh, as well as the rear cameras: the main module is a 50-megapixel Sony IMX766 with a sensor size of 1/1.56” and an aperture of F1.9, 13-megapixel ultra-wide-angle, and 5-megapixel macro. They have identical dimensions and weight — 173x77x10.3 mm, 239 g.

What is the difference? For starters, the “regular” model is offered in two color options – black (Phantom Black) and white (Storm White), while the Pro version is only available in white. The ASUS ROG Phone 6 can have 8 to 16GB of RAM, 256GB, or 512GB of storage, while the 6 Pro only has one 18/512GB option.

But the most important difference is the presence of an additional 2-inch ROG Vision OLED screen in ASUS ROG Phone 6 Pro on the back surface, which can display various information – incoming calls, charging, game mode, etc.
