Although Taiwan-based multinational Asus is best known as the maker of PCs and laptops, its ROG Phone series smartphones are quite popular with mobile gamers. Last March, the brand unveiled the Asus ROG Phone 5 series of devices. And as the successor of this lineup, it has been confirmed that the gaming handsets of the ROG Phone 6 series will be launched in the global market on 5th July. At 5:30 pm (Indian time) on the same day, the screen will be removed from the ROG Phone 6 and ROG Phone 6 Pro models included in this series at a virtual launch event.
However, just a few weeks before the launch, both the base and Pro models of the ROG Phone 6 series received approval from China's 3C (CCC) certification site. Expected fast charging speeds of these devices are released from here.
Asus ROG Phone 6 gets 3C approval
Tipster Mukul Sharma (stufflistings) has spotted Asus ROG Phone 7 and Asus ROG Phone 7 Pro on China Compulsory Certification (3C) site. The standard model ASUS_AI2201_A and the pro model ASUS_AI2201_B are reported to be listed on this certification platform. According to the site list, both Asus handsets support 15 watts of charging in normal mode and up to 85 watts of fast charging. The 3C list also reveals that these devices will come with 5G connectivity, which was previously expected from these gaming phones.
Asus has already confirmed that the ROG Phone 8 Series will have an AMOLED display with a 165 Hz high refresh rate. The company also claims that the ROG Phone 8 will be the first gaming smartphone to be powered by the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Plus Zen1 flagship processor. Asus is expected to share some more specifications of upcoming gaming handsets before launch.
Note that earlier this year, the 2D render of Asus ROG Phone 6 and ROG Phone 6 Pro came out. These leaked renders only reveal the rear panel design of these handsets. It shows a triple rear camera setup lined up horizontally with a flash in a rectangular camera module on the back panel of the phones. These renders showcased a design similar to the ROG Phone 5 series launched in India last year.
