ASUS Philippines finally brought one of the highly-anticipated gaming smartphones in the market, the ROG Phone 6.

The new ASUS ROG Phone 6 should satisfy those who want a cheaper alternative to the Pro model. That said, there are still tons of reasons to get excited about the vanilla ROG Phone.


For starters, it uses the same Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 processor, which is easily one of the fastest, if not the fastest, mobile chipsets in the market today. It is joined by an equally speedy 165Hz screen that uses a colorful 6.78-inch AMOLED panel with stereo speakers.

Being a gaming phone, the device comes with shoulder trigger buttons. Plus, an enormous 6,000mAh battery with 65W charging for long game sessions.


ASUS also rigged it with advanced stereo speakers so you can hear the directions of footsteps in shooter games.

Despite its for-gamers status, those who dabble in photography would also appreciate its 50-megapixel main camera that uses the latest IMX766 sensor. It is joined by ultra-wide and macro lenses, and the ability to record videos at 8K resolution and HDR10+.


The ASUS ROG Phone 6 will be available in 12GB/256GB and 16GB/512GB variants for a price of Php47,995 and Php54,995 in the Philippines, respectively. Both will come with a free AeroActive cooler when you pre-order from July 23 to August 31.
