a new gaming beast with “window” cooling and MediaTek processor

The new ASUS beasts are designed to deliver the best possible gaming experience thanks to their powerful MediaTek Dimensity 9000+ processor.

The ASUS ROG family of gaming-oriented smartphones has just welcomed two new members: ROG Phone 6D and ROG Phone 6D Ultimate. Both models debut with a new processor signed by MediaTek, a completely renewed cooling system and memory configurations that reach 16 GB of RAM and up to 512 GB of internal storage.

Both models share most of the features, except for a small difference that makes the ROG Phone 6D Ultimate one of a kind. In addition, the two terminals have many similarities with the ROG Phone 6 and 6 Pro, which were presented a few months ago.

AeroActive 6 cooler

The two new ASUS flagships share a design with the ROG Phone 6 series, including the PMOLED screen on the back, which allows different lighting effects to be configured, including the brand logo or personalized messages.

Both phones have the same 6.78-inch diagonal OLED screen, without any cutouts and surrounded by reduced bezels, with two slightly wider edges at the top and bottom that bring symmetry to the front of the phone. The screen is protected by a Gorilla Glass Victus glass panel and reaches a maximum refresh rate of 165 hertz.

The real difference between the two models is at the rear: the Ultimate version is the only one equipped with the AeroActive Cooler cooling system. It consists of a technology based on a “portal” located in the rear part, which can be opened via a motorized hinge to open the air duct when the AeroActive Cooler 6 accessory is connected, to spread the heat from a much more efficiently and effectively.
