ASUS just launched the MediaTek counterparts of its current flagship lineup, the ASUS ROG Phone 6D and 6D Ultimate.

Both the ASUS ROG Phone 6D and 6D Ultimate are powered by one of MediaTek’s most powerful chips, the Dimensity 9000+. Their only key differences are the RAM and storage options. The vanilla tops up at only 16GB/256GB while the Ultimate can go as high as 16GB/512GB.


That said, the duo shares the same 6.78-inch OLED screens with a speedy 165Hz refresh rate, 10-bit color, and HDR10+ certification.

On the back, the camera setup is similar to the first ROG Phone 6 and 6 Pro models. It has a sharp 50-megapixel main camera, joined by a 13-megapixel ultra-wide and 5-megapixel macro lens. The top bezel on the front holds the 12-megapixel selfie snapper.


Also on the back of the Ultimate version is the ASUS’s ROG Vision color PMOLED screen that can display animations and other important information. The standard version uses a less interesting but still attractive RGB ROG logo.

Keeping the lights on is a generous 6,000mAh battery with 65W fast charging.


Moreover, the accessories that work with the ROG Phone 6 and 6 Pro also work with the ROG 6D and 6D Ultimate.

However, the Ultimate version gets to have a unique AeroActive Portal on the back. It gives direct access to the internal components using a motorized hinge to directly attach the AeroActive Cooler 6 accessory. This allows for better heat dissipation.


The ASUS ROG Phone 6D has a starting price of EUR799 (around Php45,800) while the Ultimate version starts at EUR1,199 (around Php65,700) and comes with a free AeroActive Cooler 6 that retails for EUR89 (around Php5,100) when bought separately.
