The ASUS ROG Phone has been one of the most talked about device since its announcement and reveal earlier this year in Computex 2018 at Taiwan. With that launch, came a hype that never died down. It became one of the most anticipated smartphones to come in 2018 if not the most.
The ASUS ROG Phone is ASUS’ premium gaming smartphone that is a first to come out of the Taiwanese conglomerate’s gaming division. The gaming division’s smartphone was built to the standards of their brand too with aluminium frames with a glass back and front. It certainly looks the part too with the extended aluminium backing that covers part of the glass backing. That aluminium cover houses the built-in cooling solution to ensure that the device works in tip-top conditions at all times without getting overheated. The glass back houses a grey coloured fascia with some digital prints that adds even more gaming cred to its look. Then there is the RGB LED that adds some drama.
The ASUS ROG Phone is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 that is specially built just for this device. That processor is also supported by an Adreno 630 GPU and up to 8GB RAM to help it run along. But it does more than just run along like any other gaming smartphones. The Snapdragon 845 processor it comes with can be overclocked without any fuss at all too. More clock speed also means more power and more performance. That will make sure that you do not miss your next kill in your battle royale game with extra smooth and high frame rate.
The one thing we did not know was the contents of the box. That changed when this little baby came to the office though. So feast your eyes and sit back while we unbox the smartphone and whatever accessories that it might come with. Yes, we unboxed the accessories package too here and here.
