Today, Asus announced two new phones for the ROG line up, aimed squarely at people who want the absolute top gaming performance from their Android devices. These are the ROG Phone 6 and the ROG Phone 6 Pro, and the key upgrades include the display, cameras, and new rear screen on the 6 Pro.
Both phones use the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 processor and come with Android 12, as well as up to 512 GB of UFS3.1 storage. The standard model comes with 8 GB to 16 GB of memory depending which spec you go for, while the Pro model comes with 18 GB as standard.

The display for both is a 6.78" Samsung AMOLED with Gorilla Glass Victus and a 165 Hz refresh rate and a 2448 x 1080 resolution. This is a considerable bump compared to the ROG Phone 5S which had a 144 Hz display, but the touch sampling rate has also doubled from 360 Hz to 720 Hz. The rear display on the 6 Pro is known as the ROG Vision display, which is a 2" OLED Display which can show animations while it is charging, with an incoming call or when X mode is enabled for example, but these can be customised with up to 6 different 'scenarios.'
The last key feature is that the phones still contain the impressive 6000 mAh battery that was seen in the 5S, supporting up to 65 W charging.
The ROG Phone 6 will be available from €999 in both Black and White, and the ROG Phone 6 Pro will be available from €1,299 in White only, starting in the UK and Europe first.
