ASUS Rog Phone 7 takes mobile gaming to the next level, thanks to the unique design, the unbeatable Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 and the GameCool 7 cooling system
The ROG Phone 7 series includes models ROG Phone 7 e ROG Phone 7 Ultimate and represents the latest step in the evolution of the world’s best gaming smartphone. This futuristic-style smartphone – sporting a new two-tone design – combines the gaming power of the latest Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 with the advanced GameCool 7 thermal system and the many optimizations by ROG, to offer a truly breathtaking gaming experience and incredibly low power consumption. The key to this energy efficiency is the revolutionary new rapid cycle vapor chamber design, which increases heat dissipation efficiency up to 168%allowing the ROG Phone 7 series to run games at full speed while maintaining low temperatures.
The speaker volume of the ROG Phone 7 series was increased by 50%, thanks to the collaboration with Dirac, and when connected to the new AeroActive Cooler 7, equipped with a powerful subwoofer, you get an amazing 2.1 channel sound. Samsung’s gorgeous 165Hz AMOLED display has now significantly increased peak brightness over the previous model. Then there are the beloved ultrasonic buttons, the AirTriggers, and the software optimized by the ROG Gaming team. All these features embody the ancestral spirit of ROG: putting the player first! The ROG Phone 7 Ultimate version also features the unique ROG Vision matrix display on the back and the GameCool 7 system has been further enhanced thanks to the innovative AeroActive Portal.
ASUS ROG Phone 7: Uncompromised performance
The unbeatable ROG Phone 7 series was designed for no compromises, harnessing the impressive power of the 3.2GHz Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, which is 15% faster and 15% more energy efficient than to the previous generation. Backing up this brute power are up to 16GB LPDDR5X 8533Mbps RAM and up to 512GB UFS 4.0 ROM, twice as fast as UFS 3.0. The ROG Phone 7 is also ready for WiFi 7 (802.11be) with Qualcomm FastConnect 7800, which offers channels up to 320 MHz, and the Multi-Link function that allows gamers to connect to different frequency bands simultaneously. Thanks to Snapdragon Elite Gaming, the ROG Phone 7 supports hardware-accelerated ray tracing. This means that, for supported games, players can enjoy hyper-realistic effects, especially on glossy surfaces, which add a new dimension to the gaming experience. All this power is further enhanced by the unrivaled Armory Crate, giving gamers ultimate control over ROG Phone performance and settings.
To keep up with the fastest-paced action, the ROG Phone 7 series leverages a 165Hz Samsung AMOLED display with a Touch Sampling Rate of 720Hz and color accuracy with Delta E <1, for unparalleled graphics. The brightness has also been increased to 1,500 nits, making it easier to use outdoors. Image quality has been improved through collaboration with Pixelworks, a leading visual processing company, achieving record-breaking color accuracy. We are talking about a display without comparison. The ROG Phone 7 Ultimate also features ROG Vision, a unique matrix display that can be customized to make your smartphone even more unique. This creative feature can show cool animations triggered by system events, such as charging status, incoming calls, power on X-mode and more. Gamers can also create their own custom animations, making ROG Phone 7 Ultimate even more personal. With ROG Vision, users can express their true style and exploit the full potential of this technology.
ASUS ROG Phone 7: energy efficiency without compromise
Minimizing energy consumption without compromising performance is not easy, the ROG Phone 7 series has managed to achieve a 15% improvement in energy efficiency offered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 platform, thanks also to the new GameCool 7 system, designed to cool the CPU from all directions. This system uses a three tier approach. For short sessions, the al thermal compound takes care of it boron nitride (BN) on one side of the CPU to reduce thermal throttling. Medium-length sessions are instead handled by the larger vapor chamber and graphite sheets on the other side of the CPU. Finally, for true marathons, the AeroActive Cooler 7, with its fan positioned right above the CPU, kicks in for AI-powered active cooling, supported by a Peltier cell thermoelectric system for extra cooling performance. In the ROG Phone 7 Ultimate, cooling is further refined thanks to the system AeroActive Portal, industry leader. This vent is automatically activated when the AeroActive Cooler is plugged in, directing a constant stream of cool air from the cooler to the vapor chamber’s cooling fins. In this way the heat generated by the SoC is dissipated efficiently, with a significant increase in gaming performance and battery life. When the AeroActive portal is activated, the thermal efficiency of the phone can increase up to 20%.
The ROG Phone 7’s new fast-cycling vapor chamber has been completely redesigned. It is bigger and uses new technology inside. Instead of the usual pillar structures, special trident-shaped wick columns are found on the long edges of the chamber to improve efficiency. Additionally, there are six liquid return channels that act as escape routes for water returning to the SoC ready for the next thermal cycle. ROG Phone 7’s thermally efficient graphite sheets have also been enlarged and reshaped to maximize heat transfer from the motherboard and RF card. Finally, theAeroActive Cooler 7 It features not only an improved fan with more blades for higher back pressure, but also an integrated Peltier thermoelectric system for maximum cooling power. The revolutionary design DualCool allows you to have the back cooled by the Peltier system, while the air is directed on the phone screen, so as to maintain the correct temperature.
ASUS ROG Phone 7: gaming without compromise
Gamers have never experienced phones with as clear sound as the ROG Phone 7 series. The dual 12 x 16 mm front-facing speakers, with 50% more effective volume than before, are supported by the sub-woofer super-lineare da 13 x 38 mm five-magnet amplifier featured in the AeroActive 7, which improves bass volume by 77% and delivers truly unbeatable 2.1 audio in games or movies when the cooler is attached. Fine-tuning in collaboration with audio experts at Dirac ensures unrivaled sound quality. From the 3.5mm headphone jack to spatial Dirac Virtuo™ headphone sound, the ROG Phone 7 series is equipped with all the technology for full sound. Snapdragon Sound ensures ultra-low latency high-fidelity Bluetooth audio.
There are many new software features that further enhance the gaming experience. X Sense helps players detect key on-screen events, such as a new major objective appearing on the map or an enemy approaching, with a pop-up notification. And if a player eliminates multiple opponents in one action, X Sense adds visual effects to celebrate. X Capture, on the other hand, is an artificial intelligence tool that automatically records memorable moments of battle, such as eliminating an enemy or winning a match. The renowned AirTrigger ultrasonic controls they offer gamers similar control to what they have on consoles. They support a wide range of gestures, including Dual Action, Tap and Swipe, and Gyro Aiming. There are also 10 motion controls and an X-axis linear motor that provides powerful tactile feedback, bringing players right into the heart of the action. The Vibration Mapping feature also enhances the tactile experience, providing adjustable feedback for virtual on-screen buttons.
