ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) has announced the all-new ROG Phone 7 series of gaming smartphones at its For Those Who Dare virtual launch event.
ROG Phone 7 Series Features
The gaming smartphone series will be available in two models: ROG Phone 7 and ROG Phone 7 Ultimate, which sports a two toned design. Both phones sport a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 Mobile Platform with the advanced GameCool 7 thermal system and special ROG tuning. The phones feature a rapid-cycle vapor chamber design, which increases heat dissipation efficiency by up to 168%, allowing them to run games at full speed while maintaining low temperatures.
Additionally, the 165 Hz Samsung AMOLED display’s peak brightness has significantly increased compared to the previous model. The series also features the legendary AI-generated in-game effects, customizable AirTrigger haptic buttons, and continuous game-setting updates by the ROG Gaming team.
Working in tandem with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 Mobile Platform are the up to 16GB of 8,533 Mbps LPDDR5X RAM, and a 512 GB UFS 4.0 ROM. It’s ready for Wi-Fi 7 (802.11be) with Qualcomm FastConnect™ 7800, supporting ultra-fast 320 MHz channels and Multi-Link operation.
Thanks to Snapdragon Elite Gaming, the ROG Phone 7 supports real-time hardware-accelerated ray tracing. All this power is enhanced by the Armoury Crate performance manager, which gives gamers control over performance and tuning settings.
Additionally, the ROG Phone 7 Ultimate features ROG Vision, a unique matrix color display on the rear of the phone. This creative feature can showcase awesome animations triggered by system events, such as charging status, incoming calls, X Mode activation, and more.
In the ROG Phone 7 Ultimate, cooling is enhanced even further with the AeroActive Portal. This air inlet activates automatically when the AeroActive Cooler is attached, directing a constant flow of cool air from the cooler onto the cooling fins of the vapor chamber. When the AeroActive Portal is activated, the phone’s thermal efficiency can increase by up to 20%.
The twin front-firing 12 x 16 mm speakers — with 50% more effective volume than previously — are aided by the five-magnet, super-linear 13 x 38 mm sub-woofer in the AeroActive 7 cooler, which enhances bass volume by 77%. Fine-tuning in cooperation with the audio experts at Dirac ensures unrivaled sound quality.
The AirTrigger ultrasonic controls give gamers fingertip control over their games for a console-like experience. They support a wide range of gestures, including Dual Action, Press and Lift, and Gyroscope Aiming. There are also 10 motion controls and an X-axis linear motor that provides powerful haptic feedback. It also enables the superb Vibration Mapping feature, which enhances the touch experience by providing adjustable haptic feedback for virtual on-screen buttons.
