Asus Malaysia just confirmed the local availability of its latest gaming smartphones. The ROG Phone 6D series – which includes the standard ROG Phone 6D and 6D Ultimate – and the ROG Phone 6 Batman Edition will be launched in Malaysia on 8 November.
While the ROG Phone 6D Ultimate is similar to the ROG Phone 6 Pro with an ROG Vision coloured PMOLED display on the back panel, it also has an AeroActive Portal. This “door” opens up when the phone is connected to the AeroActive Cooler 6, improving thermal efficiency by up to 20%. This should translate to better sustained performance.
One other new hardware of the ROG Phone 6D and 6D Ultimate is the MediaTek Dimensity 9000+ chipset, which is said to deliver 10% faster performance compared to the standard Dimensity 9000. It’ll be interesting to see how this chip compares to the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chip found in the regular ROG Phone 6.
Other specifications of the ROG Phone 6D and 6D Ultimate include a 6.78-inch 1080p 165Hz AMOLED display, a triple camera system – 50MP primary + 13MP ultra-wide + 5MP macro – a 12MP selfie camera, and a generous 6,000mAh battery with support for 65W fast charging.
As for the ROG Phone 6 Batman Edition, it has similar hardware as the standard ROG Phone 6/6D; it’s powered by either a Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 or MediaTek Dimensity 9000+ chipset. Of course, it also has some neat Batman-themed accessories and design elements.
The Asus ROG Phone 6D, ROG Phone 6D Ultimate, and ROG Phone 6 Batman Edition will be launched in Malaysia on 8 November next month. We’ll find out the local pricing of these gaming smartphones then.
