ASUS Malaysia Flashes Their D with the New ROG Phone 6D Series
At a launch event in KL today, ASUS Malaysia has officially launched the ROG Phone 6D Series, and there’s even a Batman Edition available.
ROG Phone 6D Series
There are three new gaming phones for you to consider now in Malaysia; the ROG Phone 6D, 6D Ultimate, and ROG Phone 6 Batman Edition. Essentially, it’s the same ROG Phone that was launch earlier this year but with some changes inside, most notably the use of the MediaTek Dimensity 9000+ chip, which is where the “D” comes from.
For the Ultimate Edition, it even has a new AeroActive Portal, which works together with the AeroActive Cooler 6, with thermal surface area increasing by nine-fold, thus improving thermal efficiency by 20% and allowing the CPU to run at a consistent performance for marathon gaming sessions.
As for the ROG Phone 6 Batman Edition, it comes with the Batman Aero Case, Bat Signal Projector, Batman Ejector Pin with Gotham City-themed stand, and a storage case made of extended polypropylene (EPP). The phone itself is clad in in the Gotham City Black colour, setting it apart from the other devices in the series.
Inside the device, you get a special Batman-themed live wallpaper, redesigned app icon frames, unique sound and animations, along with a custom Bat emblem in-display fingerprint icon.
