ASUS announces the Gladius II Wireless Gaming Mouse and more

Asus Launches ROG Phone - Company's First Ever Gaming Smartphone

The company even made a Mobile Desktop Dock for the ROG Phone that lets you play all the games you like on a bigger display for an even more immersive experience. This phone packs a 6-inch AMOLED screen clocking in at 2K resolution.

The keyboard can withstand up to 60ml of liquids, and ASUS notes that the key caps are covered with three layers of paint - one more than traditional keyboards (to make it TUF).

The most unique thing on the ASUS ROG Phone is that its USB-C charging port isn't at the bottom of the phone but on the side, so you can continue gaming into the night without the cable getting in the way of your hands. It is paired with 8GB of RAM and a choice of either 128GB or 512GB of storage. If you're anxious about thermal throttling, ASUS has taken steps to ensure that won't be happening by including vapor-chamber cooling and copper heat spreading to dissipate heat quicker than most phones. There is also a vapour chamber cooling system inside the phone, the likes of which was seen on the Black Shark.


The ROG Phone starts showing off its gamer cred when you look at the array of ports. However, we are told that the ROG Phone is expected to arrive in Malaysia as early as July 2018. This should help gamers move the mouse around without having to shift the gaming peripheral into a proper position once more, which is something I do once in a while. ASUS also claims HDR support and 108.6% DCI-P3 coverage. There's also a 12/8-megapixel camera combo on the back and an 8-megapixel selfie camera on the front.

As far as accessories go though, the coolest has to be the Twinview dock. The phone's got a copper heat spreader and carbon cooling pads inside, and it all boils down (sorry) to 50% faster sustained clock speeds than a "standard" smartphone CPU, according to the company. And if it's just not striking enough, never fear: you can customise the rear logo to pulse flash or glow in a variety of colours thanks to the integrated RGB lighting. It's a bit odd, as most phone displays either come in at 60Hz or 120Hz (like the Razer Phone).

Dubbed the RoG Phone, Asus has given its gaming-orientated handset a 6in 2160x1080 AMOLED display that supports high dynamic range and a 90Hz refresh rate for smooth and vibrant mobile gaming. An integrated 600mAh battery powers the second 6in display so you can livestream games via one display and play on the other, and extra haptics gives force feedback in games. The accessory also has its own 6000mAh battery. It's primary use to allow the phone to be plugged into a screen, with a working keyboard and mouse, but it can also be hooked up to a PC, to function as a KVM switch, letting you use the same screen, mouse and keyboard from your desktop on your phone with the flick of a switch. Price and release There's no word on what the price for the ROG Phone would be, but given the specs and the brand history of the Republic of Gamers products, we wouldn't expect it to be cheap. After all, if your handset overheats, it doesn't really matter how powerful your hardware is, because it'll be throttled down to cool off.
