The phones come with up to 18GB of the fastest LPDDR5 RAM along with 512GB of onboard storage.

And there is a monster 6000 mAh battery on.

The firm’s AirTrigger 6 system has been significantly upgraded.

These ultrasonic sensors fully support various gestures, including new features such as Dual Action, Press and Lift along with Gyroscope Aiming.

There is also a 13MP ultrawide and a macro camera.

Enhanced software features include HDR10+ Video Mode, and there’s also a 12MP front camera for high-quality group selfies and live-streaming videos.

AeroActive Cooler 6 also adds four extra physical buttons to allow a genuine console-like control experience.

ROG Phone 6 accessories

Optional accessories include the ROG Kunai 3 Gamepad, ROG Cetra True Wireless Pro and True Wireless gaming headphones, ROG Delta S Wireless and Delta S Core gaming headsets.
