Clip-on cooling, was built for PUBG — ASUS ROG Phone

Asus' ROG brand is the company's gaming division, which stands for "Republic of Gamers".

The Asus Phone features a 6-inch full HD+ AMOLED display, which comes thin bezels and an aspect ratio of 18:9.

Asus is looking to make a stand, and has today unveiled the "world's fastest smartphone".

Enabling a lot of the insane tricks on the ROG Phone is the addition of extra ports (including USB-C) on the side of the device. Oh, and 8GB of RAM is on offer with storage weighing in at 128GB to 512GB. If you're anxious about thermal throttling, ASUS has taken steps to ensure that won't be happening by including vapor-chamber cooling and copper heat spreading to dissipate heat quicker than most phones.

Asus also introduced a couple of add-ons or accessories, including the Mobile Desktop Dock, which allows you to connect a 4K monitor, Gigabit Ethernet, 5.1-channel speakers, and a stack of USB peripherals. We should know more closer to launch, but in the meantime, what do you think of the latest TUF products? On its own, it keeps the device cooler over long periods, but with the addition of a special attachable fan that comes in the box, ROG can keep the Snapdragon 845 at peak speeds for up to 50% longer than typical devices.

The Asus ROG Phone will be available during the third quarter of 2018 in Canada. Case in point: I've reviewed many a smartphone over the past few months, and they've all blended into one samey-feeling mush.

In a statement to The Associated Press, the company said it views the tariffs with "regret and concern". This could mean that the EU will either neutralize or retaliate against the USA with European tariffs.

HDR support is also on the cards, with native support for the Amazon, Netflix and Youtube HDR standards, as well as the ability to convert SDR content to HDR on the fly - just like Sony's Xperia XZ2.

There are a pair of front-facing dual-speakers and in terms of optics, the phone has an 8 MP front camera along with 12MP + 8MP ultra-wide on the back.

Perhaps the strangest accessory is the TwinView Dock, which is a device that stores the phone in the top half of a clamshell case, while the bottom half houses a second 2160×1080 OLED panel. This, the company promises, will help sustain "blur-free high frame rates in the heat of battle", enhanced by the 90Hz refresh time and 1ms response time of the 6in screen.

As a gaming phone, the ASUS ROG Phone aims to not only provide the best performance possible but also future proof as much as possible.

On the bright side, the K5 has five zones of customizable RGB backlighting and the ability to synchronize the effects with the M5 mouse, using Aura Sync software. The clamshell houses an extra 6,000 mAh battery so that you don't drain your phone's battery halfway through the day. That's not all, there's also two side controllers called the Gamevice that clip on either side of the device, and you can also get a variety of docks - including a desktop mounted one for full-scale gaming. The fans are a bit more powerful this year, running on 12 volts, with a few more blades; the radiator fins are also thinner and more tightly packed, which Asus claims improved heat dissipation by up to 10 percent.
