After Razer, probably it is now the turn of Asus to come up with a gaming smartphone. Recently, the PC hardware and smartphone manufacturer Asus has given out a few details about the new product it is going to offer. At the time of its 100th store opening, Asus CEO Jerry Shen has revealed that the company is next planning to bring in a gaming smartphone very soon. However, there are no details of the Asus ROG release date in UAE revealed yet.
For almost a few years now, Asus has been striving to make its mark in the mobile industry, which is currently being dominated by big players such as Apple, Samsung, Huawei, Nokia, and others. Asus has actually made its presence felt by introducing some amazing devices with best features at a budget range. Besides offering the regular smartphones, the company also has its focus on the gamers market. As a result, it has already introduced a few ROG (Republic of Gamers) and Strix lineup of PC gaming products and developed an impression as the gamers focused brand. So now, the next step of Asus is to introduce a gaming smartphone and target both the phone users and gamers simultaneously.
Before Asus, there are a few companies that have launched smartphones keeping in view the mobile gamers. One among them is Razer Phone, which has is now gearing up to release its new Razer Phone 2 with 120Hz refresh rate display. The reason for using such refresh rates is it ensures smooth animations and lessens screen tearing. Meanwhile, some companies offer devices with 18:9 aspect ratio as seen in Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus, Honor 7X, Xiaomi Mi Mix and many others. Even Asus has followed the latest trends by presenting a few of its products with the signature Apple notch design. Hence, considering this, we can assume that Asus might offer its ROG smartphone with the similar notch design for its AMOLED display measuring about 6-inches.
Talking about other Asus ROG features, the Taiwan company will mostly follow other brands when it comes to optics. This simply means that Asus will mostly offer its new handset with a dual camera setup featuring 16MP and 13MP camera in the rear along with other additions such as LED flash, touch focus, phase detection autofocus, and other aspects. Meanwhile, at the front, it sports a 13MP camera with which, users can take clear selfie pictures along with making high-quality video calls.
On the other hand, there are rumors that the Asus ROG gaming smartphone in UAE may come equipped with a big 4000mAh battery. If this is true, it is definitely a good move from the brand as apart from other activities, gaming drains a lot of battery and it is a must for such handsets to have suitable batteries supporting this aspect. In addition to this, we can also anticipate the device to carry dual speakers, USB ports, and a few gaming accessories to cater to the gaming requirements.
Now with the technicalities, speculations about Asus ROG specs indicate that the handset will most probably be incorporated into the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset. It is the same processor used even in the Xiaomi Black Shark, which is another popular gaming smartphone. The smartphone might be offered with 6GB RAM and there is also a possibility of the brand to make the 8GB RAM variant available. And it is anticipated that these variants might get an internal memory of 128GB and 256GB options to select from. Besides, an external storage space might also be on the offer through a microSD card that supports up to 256GB data. In addition, it will possibly get dual SIM card options as well.
As of now, there is no information of Asus ROG release date available but speculations indicate for July launch. Moreover, its annual COMPUTEX 2018 exhibition is going to be held on June 4, 2018, we can expect some news about its launch during the event. On the other hand, the Asus ROG price in UAE is estimated to be close to AED 2100.
