Not too long ago the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset. The hardware platform seeks to solve the heating problems of the current Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, while offering higher performance. Since its release, there has been speculation about what will be the first phone to carry it, and now it seems that doubt is dispelled.
It seems that ASUS is one of the main candidates to win the battle to see who launches the first phone powered by the latest Qualcomm. The company confirmed that the ROG Phone 6 series will have its official launch event on July 5.
Recently, China’s 3C approved two ROG Phone 6 series devices with model numbers AI2201_A and AI2201_B. The AI2201_B has now passed TENAA certification, through which its specifications have been revealed. However, it is unclear whether this will debut as ROG Phone 6 or ROG Phone 6 Pro.
ASUS ROG Phone 6 (AI2201_B) specifications
The ROG Phone 6 (AI2201_B) is 10.39mm thick and weighs around 229 grams. It will feature a 6.78-inch AMOLED display with support for up to 165Hz refresh rate. The exact screen resolution is not mentioned in the listing. It is expected to run Android 12 operating system under the ROG Phone UI interface.
The Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chip (with a maximum clock speed of 3.2 GHz) will be assisted by a massive amount of up to 18GB of RAM (LPDDR5) and up to 256GB (UFS 3.1) of onboard storage. It will be backed by a 2,925 mAh (nominal value) dual-cell battery with a total capacity that could be 6,000 mAh. The device would support 65W super fast charging.
The front notch will be home to a 12-megapixel camera. Its rear triple camera module will have a 64-megapixel main camera. The device also features an in-display fingerprint reader. The TENAA listing has no pictures of the phone. However, it is rumored that it will renew the design of the ROG Phone line.
The ROG Phone 6 will be announced on July 5 in China, Taiwan, and the US, but it may not go on sale right away. On the other hand, the launch date of the Xiaomi 12 Ultra is yet to be confirmed, but it seems that Xiaomi’s future flagship device could be available for purchase in China before the Asus lineup.
