Asus ROG Phone 6D, when Mediatek and Batman get involved

We didn’t necessarily expect it, but Asus is taking advantage of this month of September to announce its first ROG Phone 6D with a Mediatek Dimensity 9000+ SoC.

Asus should have made today’s announcements a little earlier in the month, but it must be said that this beginning of September 2022 was particularly loaded with announcements. Also, the Taiwanese manufacturer preferred to wait for things to calm down to make a double announcement.

We did not necessarily expect it, but we have known for some time that the high-end SoCs of Mediatek no longer have to be ashamed of those of Qualcomm. Also, Asus has just announced its new ROG Phone 6D and ROG Phone 6D Ultimateboth based on the latest SoC Mediatek Dimension 9000+. But that’s not all since we are also hosting an edition Batman.

The Asus ROG Phone 6D and ROG Phone 6D Ultimate

Barely two months after the ROG Phone 6 and ROG Phone 6 Pro which embed a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 SoC, Asus presents its new ROG Phone 6D and ROG Phone 6D Ultimate and we can say that the Taiwanese manufacturer is not going there with the back of the spoon since they ship a MediaTek Dimension 9000+ 5G SoC, RAM that goes to LPDDR5X and 512GB of internal memory in UFS 3.1. If Asus avoids the comparison with Qualcomm, it is 10% more performance compared to the Dimension 9000.

“The pursuit of the ultimate performance and gaming experience has always been central to ROG Phone. With each new model, we constantly strive to surpass ourselves, realizing the spirit of ‘For Those Who Dare’,” said SY Hsu, Co-CEO, ASUS. “We are delighted that this first collaboration with MediaTek has achieved such stunning performance, and we will continue to strive to improve performance incessantly.”

“The rollout of 5G has raised the bar for mobile gaming as users can enjoy super-fast connectivity on the go,” said JC Hsu, corporate vice president and general manager of the MediaTek wireless communications. “MediaTek’s Dimensity 9000+ enables ROG Phone 6D users to enjoy fast and smooth gaming experiences, reliable connectivity, fast refresh rate and immersive visuals, while maximizing battery life. battery “.

Asus ROG Phone 6D

If the SoC and memory parts have obviously evolved and we understand that it is for even more performance, the other big innovation of the 6Ds is also the new GameCool 6 cooling system that we find as well as the very new feature AeroActive Portal, a heat dissipation “hatch” that works in conjunction with the AeroActive Cooler 6 and the heat dissipation fins on the vapor chamber, to introduce cool air to the processor. According to Asus, this new technology allows better cooling performance since the thermal surface is multiplied by 92 and the thermal efficiency is increased by 20% when the AeroActive Portal is activated.

Apart from these purely internal changes, for the rest, we take what we already knew with the ROG Phone 6 and ROG Phone 6 Pro from the beginning of the summer. We therefore find a 6.78-inch AMOLED screen with a refresh rate of 165Hz, the two Air Trigger 6, the GameFX audio system with dual speakers, a 3.5mm jack, a 6000mAh battery and the same photo block which includes a main camera with a 50 Megapixel Sony IMX766 sensor. If the ROG Phone 6D offers 12GB of RAM with 256GB of memory, the ROG Phone 6D Ultimate will offer 16GB of RAM with 512GB of memory. Similarly, the 6D will only offer Aura RGB lighting while the 6D Ultimate will feature a color ROG Vision matrix display on the back.

Count 949 euros for the ROG Phone 6D and 1429 euros for the ROG Phone 6D Ultimate. Both will be available next November only.

And Batman in all this?

Well Asus offers a special edition Batman which embeds a specific back with a special Batman Aura RGB logo, a specific theme, a semi-matte finish Night Black but not only since we will also find in the packaging a Batman “Aero Case” protective shell, a Bat-Signal mini-projector, a Batarang ejection pin with support on the theme of Gotham City and finally, a storage case .

The most discerning will have understood that the Batman Edition is based on the ROG Phone 6D. Count 1329 euros, also for next November.
