The ROG Phone 7 series includes the ROG Phone 7 and ROG Phone 7 Ultimate models and is the latest step in the high-performance evolution of the company’s gaming phone. This futuristically-styled phone — which sports a new two-tone design — combines the power of the flagship Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 Mobile Platform with the advanced GameCool 7 thermal system. ASUS says the key to this power efficiency is the new rapid-cycle vapor chamber design, which increases heat dissipation efficiency by up to 168%, allowing the ROG Phone 7 series to run games at full speed while maintaining low temperatures.
To make ROG Phone 7 a powerful and portable theater, we’ve increased the effective volume of the ROG Phone 7 series’ speakers by 50% and tuned the system in cooperation with audio specialists Dirac. ROG Phone 7 series now delivers amazing 2.1-channel sound when the new AeroActive Cooler 7 accessory — which houses a powerful subwoofer — is attached.ASUS
Additionally, the 165 Hz Samsung AMOLED display’s peak brightness has significantly increased compared to the previous model. And the ROG Phone 7 series also features the legendary AI-generated in-game effects, customizable AirTrigger haptic buttons, and continuous game-setting updates by the ROG Gaming team that epitomize the core spirit of ROG.
