With the world’s fastest 10nm octa-core Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 845 Mobile Platform, the ASUS ROG Phone is a never compromising, intense mobile gaming phone. The ROG "takes mobile gaming performance to the next level, with each and every component optimized for a lag-free, responsive experience."

ROG's CPU is speed-binned and has attained clock speeds of up to an amazing 2.96GHz. The ROG includes the Adreno™ 630 GPU a "gaming powerhouse" and is a dramatic improvement over the last generation by over 30%. Since gaming is often dependent on internet speed, ROG has an "ultrafast wireless connectivity" with Cat 18 LTE and the latest 802.11ad gigabit-class Wi-Fi. ROG also has up to 8GB RAM and Up to 512GB ROM.

With super fast and high performance mobile gaming, one issue arises, heat. Not a problem with the ROG. Introducing GameCool, a system that "features highly efficient 3D vapor-chamber cooling inside, enhanced with a copper heat spreader and carbon cooling pads on the circuit board for maximum cooling performance." The AeroActive Cooler offers a four-speed fan system which can cool the ROG's surface by 4.7°C. Overall the ROG's cooling system has 60% improved CPU cooling efficiency and 5X longer peak endurance.

With ROG landscape-mode gaming is easy with "an additional side-mounted custom USB-C™ connector that supports direct charging, HDMI output, gigabit LAN and headphones." Mobile Desktop Dock and TwinView Dock expansion modules are assessible through the side connector. Unhindered and comfortable gaming is available without awkward placed plugs and cables normally found in standard phone layouts.
