Asus ROG Phone is a monster phone for serious mobile gamers

The ROG phone’s got a copper heat spreader and carbon cooling pads inside, and it all boils down (sorry) to 50% faster sustained clock speeds than a “standard” smartphone CPU

Gamers have had a choice of beefy, ultra-high-spec PCs for years. But when it comes to mobile phones that are good for gaming, it’s mostly down to choosing a flagship that hopefully won’t melt after 30 minutes of PUBG.

This may change with Asus’ new phone, announced at Computex on Monday. Called the ROG Phone — in line with Asus’ ROG family of gaming-oriented products — it’s got the specs to power the most demanding of mobile games.

The Asus ROG Phone is a 6-inch smartphone with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor clocked to 2.96GHz, Adreno 630 GPU, up to 8GB of RAM and up to 512GB of storage. That’s top of the class by any metric; in fact, no other phone on the market offers such powerful specs at this moment.

The phone’s AMOLED, 2,160×1,080 display has HDR support as well as a 90Hz refresh rate and 1ms response rate. This has to be the first time a phone manufacturer focused on these aspects of a phone’s screen, making gameplay smooth and color-rich.

As for cooling, the phone has a “3D vapor-chamber cooling system” that Asus claims provides 16 times larger surface area for heat dissipation than your “standard” heat-pipe cooling system.

Will Covid-19 unleash a new generation of digital nomads?
– Covid-19 has facilitated the widespread adoption of remote working
– Despite travel restrictions, countries are seeking to attract digital nomads
– Dubai and Mexico have emerged as key destinations for foreign remote workers
– As travel resumes, many anticipate a new wave of roaming digital nomads

With Covid-19 facilitating the widespread adoption of remote working practices, some emerging markets are seeking to attract digital nomads through a series of incentives and special visas.

Despite border closures and travel restrictions resulting from the virus, various countries are stepping up efforts to incentivise the movement of so-called digital nomads – people who work remotely and relocate relatively freely.

For example, in October the Dubai government launched its virtual working programme, an initiative that gives foreign professionals the opportunity to move to the emirate and continue to work remotely in their current jobs.

The one-year programme, launched after Dubai reopened its borders to international tourists in July last year, is designed is attract professionals, entrepreneurs and those working in start-ups.

Given its strong ICT infrastructure and healthy start-up scene, Dubai has been seen as an increasingly attractive option for digital nomads in recent years, with officials marketing the emirate as a place where people can live and work by the beach.

As a further incentive, in January officials began offering free vaccines to those on the programme.
