Android devices geared for gaming are a specialty, but they may be more common than you think. Asus has long been a player in this market, and the ROG Phone 6 will make its public debut in early July, continuing the ROG (Republic of Gamers) line's legacy. Recent leaks have shown off every every element of the phone's design, which has been known about since January. Asus' upcoming controller attachments have been given a fresh appearance thanks to some new pictures.
Evan Blass, a well-known leaker, has released fresh images of a ROG-branded gaming controller in black and white. Kunai 3 Gamepad appears quite similar at first sight to this new model. While the ROG 5's bumper and trigger buttons, as well as the left- and right-side thumbsticks, are there, it's unclear whether Asus has made any internal or functional alterations. The inclusion of a white shade is really the only noteworthy development.
Aside from yesterday's leaked images, which gave us our best look yet at the next Asus flagship, we've also seen the AeroActive Cooler 6 snap-on cooling fan and the Devilcase Guardian Lite Plus case, both of which have cutouts that allow users to see the phone's lighted back panel.
The ROG Phone 6 will be packed with Qualcomm's newest Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 processor, an enhanced version of the ordinary Snapdragon 8 Gen 1. This helps to build some pre-launch buzz. Furthermore, Asus has revealed that the forthcoming flagship would have an IPX4 certification, which would be a first among gaming phones and a feature that the ROG Phone 5 sorely lacked.
Asus' next mobile gaming gear will be unveiled in full on July 5 during a launch event planned for that day.
