After months of leaks and rumors, Asus has finally pulled the curtains off the ROG Phone 7 series. The company’s latest gaming lineup comprises vanilla and Ultimate models. So. let’s get into the specs, features, expected price, and availability of the Asus ROG Phone 7 and ROG Phone 7 Ultimate in Nepal.

Asus ROG Phone 7 Series Overview:

The Ultimate ROG Phone

As you might have already noticed, there is no Pro model on this ROG Phone 7 series—Asus has introduced an Ultimate model instead. So what really makes a ROG gaming phone Ultimate? Well, in this particular case, it’s the new AeroActive portal. Situated at the back of the ROG Phone 7, it automatically opens up when AeroActive Cooler is attached to allow direct airflow from the cooler to the phone’s vapor chamber. This increases the phone’s thermal efficiency by up to 20%.

Also exclusive to the Ultimate model is the ROG Vision. It is a compact matrix color display on the back of the phone. This works as a notification alert, displaying animations for incoming calls, charging, and other system events. Users can also create custom animations of their own based on their preferences.

Elite Gaming

Outside these two features, the ROG Phone 7 and ROG Phone 7 Ultimate are pretty much the same. Both are powered by the new Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, the latest flagship chipset from Qualcomm, with a peak clock frequency of 3.2GHz. The chip is 15% faster and 15% more power-efficient than the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1, powering the ROG Phone 6 series. This is paired with up to 16GB of LPDDR5X RAM (8,533Mbps) and 512GB of UFS 4.0 storage. The latter is twice as fast as last-gen UFS 3.0.

ROG GameCool 7

With the new chip alone, the new ROG Phone 7 series boasts 15% higher power efficiency than its predecessor. It is further enhanced by the GameCool 7, which has three main components. The first is the Boron Nitride which avoids CPU throttling during smaller gaming sessions. For moderate sessions, the ROG Phone 7 and ROG Phone 7 Ultimate pack a vapor chamber and graphite sheets.

The vapor chamber is bigger and more efficient thanks to the internal redesign. It drops the traditional pillar structures of the chamber for trident-shaped wick columns to improve efficiency. In addition, it has six channels to prevent water backflow to the chipset.

Even if that’s not enough, you can use the AeroActive Cooler 7, which attaches to the rear panel. The DualCool design allows the cooling of phones’ front and back simultaneously. AeroActive Cooler 7 also has a built-in sub-woofer which enables 2.1 channel sound when connected. It increases the bass volume of the twin-firing speakers by 77%.
