Asus ROG Phone 7: Everything you need to know

    Because of the power and specific features on the smartphones that make playing the newest titles a pleasure, Asus’s Republic of Gamers phones are a favorite among individuals who like gaming on the move.

    The business has now introduced the newest generation of ROG Phone handsets: the ROG Phone 7 and ROG Phone 7 Ultimate. Here’s all you need to know about the world’s most powerful gaming phones – or read our ROG Phone 7 Ultimate review for our firsthand impressions.

    When was the Asus ROG Phone 7 be released?

    Asus announced the phones at a launch event on April 13, and both are now available for purchase directly from Asus.

    The ROG Phone 7 and 7 Ultimate have already been released in the United Kingdom and Europe, but there has been no information on when they will be available in the United States.

    How much does the Asus ROG Phone 7 cost?

    Here are the basic start prices for the two phones in the UK and Europe:

    • ROG Phone 7: £999/€1,199
    • ROG Phone 7 Ultimate: £1,199/€1,399

    That is a price increase for the regular model (the ROG Phone 6 started at $899/£899/€999), but it makes sense given that there is no Pro this time around. However, the Ultimate model costs the same as last year’s 6D Ultimate.

    What are the Asus ROG Phone 7 specs and features?

    To run through the specs, let’s break down the models one by one.

    ROG Phone 7

    The normal model is the less expensive of the two, but make no mistake: this is still a powerful high-end gaming flagship.

    It’s powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, which is presently the most powerful Android processor on the market. It will be available with either 12GB RAM and 256GB storage or 16GB RAM and 512GB storage.

    The phone’s performance may be further modified, calibrated, and optimized with to Asus’ Armoury Crate software and superior cooling solutions, allowing it to outperform standard 8 Gen 2 flagship Android phones.

    All of that power powers the big 6.78in flat AMOLED display, which has a 165Hz refresh rate, the fastest on the market right now. A 720Hz touch sampling rate should improve responsiveness, and a peak brightness of 1,500 nits implies it should be bright enough to play in nearly any environment.

    The audio is as outstanding, with stereo speakers that can be upgraded to a 2.1 sound system by using the subwoofer incorporated into the clip-on AeroActive Cooler 7. In addition, the phone retains its 3.5mm headphone connector for wired music, as well as its pair of USB-C charging connections.

    When it comes to charging, the 6000mAh battery can be charged at 65W charging rates. That’s quick, but it’s not the fastest. There is also no wireless charging option, which comes as no surprise.

    There are also cameras. The Sony IMX766 sensor is used by the 50Mp primary camera on the back, which is accompanied by a 13Mp ultrawide camera and a 5Mp macro. When you flip to the front, you’ll find a 32Mp selfie camera.

    The ROG Phone 7 comes in Phantom Black or Storm White and boasts an IP54 rating for dust and water resistance, as well as Gorilla Glass Victus on the display. It’s large (10.4mm thick) and hefty (239g), but that’s the price you pay for a gaming gadget.

    It comes with Android 13, and Asus has guaranteed two Android version upgrades – so Android 14 and 15 – as well as four years of software updates.

    Here are the full specs:

    • Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2
    • Android 13 (ROG UI & Zen UI)
    • 6.78in 165Hz AMOLED display
    • Qualcomm Adreno 740
    • 12/16GB LPDDR5X RAM
    • 256/512GB UFS 4.0 storage
    • Cameras:
      • 50Mp main sensor
      • 13Mp ultrawide
      • 8Mp macro
      • 32Mp front facing
    • Wi-Fi 6E (Wi-Fi 7 ready)
    • Dual SIM dual standby
    • Bluetooth 5.3
    • 6000mAh battery
    • 65W wired charging
    • 173 x 77 x 10.3 mm
    • 239g

    ROG Phone 7 Ultimate

    The phone’s Ultimate edition is… comparable. Quite similar.

    In fact, the specs are nearly similar, but for the fact that it’s limited to 16GB RAM and 512GB storage, with no lower-spec options available.

    The distinctions are entirely in the design. The Ultimate edition, which is only available in white, has two additional features on the back: a ROG Vision matrix color display screen and an AeroActive Portal cooling flap.

    Both are from last year’s Ultimate phones and are not new to this generation. The display is a short strip of screen that is mostly used to play custom animations, display images, and alerts for pop-up notifications. It’s a pleasant aesthetic flourish that lends a distinctive touch to the phone but doesn’t contribute much usefulness.

    The Portal, on the other hand, is a little flap that works only when the Cooler 7 attachment is also attached, boosting air flow and cooling to offer you a little additional performance when you really need it.
