Asus ROG Phone 6D Ultimate will launch on September 19, the company said Monday. An Asus Website teases the unveiling. The new gaming phone will employ MediaTek’s Dimensity 9000+ SoC. Asus’ 2022 Android gaming flagships include Qualcomm’s newest chipset. Asus will move to MediaTek in a forthcoming ROG Phone 6 model, according to a leaker. This ‘D’ variant reportedly has a 165Hz display and 6,000mAh battery.
Asus waited until July 2022 to introduce its next ROG Phones so it could use the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 without an upgrade. Now, however, it seems there is a forthcoming variant with a different SoC after all.
According to Digital Chat Station, this “ROG Phone 6D” will arrive with all the advantages of the original 6 or 6 Pro, including their 165Hz Samsung-derived panels, 6,000mAh batteries, and 65W charging speed. However, it will forego the Qualcomm platform in favour of the MediaTek Dimensity 9000+.
What’s More in ROG Phone 6D?
The MediaTek Dimensity 9000 Plus is a faster version of the Dimensity 9000. It’s a 4nm, octa-core SoC featuring a 3GHz Arm Cortex-X2 prime core, three 2.85GHz Arm Cortex-A710 performance cores, and four Arm Cortex-A510 efficiency cores, and an Arm Mali G-710 MC10 GPU.
The ROG Phone 6D Ultimate may have the same design and hardware as the previous two variants. If so, it should have a 165Hz FHD+ AMOLED display, a 6,000mAh battery with 65W wired fast charging, a 3.5mm headphone connector, and side-mounted triggers. We don’t know if Asus will improve other aspects of the new model. If we learn more, we’ll let you know.
