Before the official launch of the Asus ROG Phone 7 series on April 13th, details of the phones have been leaked online. The specifications and images have already surfaced, generating buzz among fans. As part of the pre-launch buzz, a German technology publication, Winfuture, has released official press images of both the standard ROG Phone 7 and the ROG Phone 7 Ultimate models, providing a sneak peek into the latest offering from Asus.
It seems that, as with previous versions, the discrepancies between the two models are not significant. While it is unclear if the amount of memory will differentiate the models, some noticeable variations include the mini display and the small black square on the back.
According to the leaked renders, the standard ROG Phone 7 model will bear a resemblance to its predecessor, featuring curved sides and a curved back. On the rear, three cameras and an LED flash can be seen, while the right side shows off the volume rocker and power button. As for the ROG Phone 7 Pro, it will share the same design as the standard model but will boast an extra display on the back that showcases the Republic of Gamers logo.
The little black square on the back of the phone is actually a flap that’s designed to be used with ASUS’s AeroActive Portal accessory. This accessory is a fan module that can be attached to the flap, helping to cool the CPU by flushing it with air. This would allow for better cooling during extended play sessions, preventing the system from overheating and potentially damaging the components.
The outlet has reported that both variants of the phone are anticipated to feature a 6.8-inch AMOLED display with a refresh rate of 165Hz. A 6,000mAh battery is expected to power the device. As for the cameras, both models are expected to come with a 50MP primary camera, a 13MP ultrawide lens, and a 5MP macro sensor.
The NBTC certification for the ROG Phone 7 Ultimate reveals that it will be a performance powerhouse, boasting 16GB of LPDDR5X memory and 512GB of UFS 4.0 storage, and it will be powered by the latest Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor. Furthermore, the device is expected to feature a stunning 165Hz refresh rate display, delivering an ultra-smooth and responsive user experience.
