ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) today announced the all-new ROG Phone 7 series of gaming smartphones at its For Those Who Dare virtual launch event. The ROG Phone 7 series includes the ROG Phone 7 and ROG Phone 7 Ultimate models and is the latest step in the high-performance evolution of the world's greatest gaming phone. This futuristically-styled phone — which sports a new two-tone design — combines the game-winning power of the flagship Snapdragon® 8 Gen 2 Mobile Platform with the advanced GameCool 7 thermal system and special ROG tuning to deliver a truly breathtaking mobile gaming experience — and impressively low power consumption. The key to this power efficiency is the revolutionary new rapid-cycle vapor chamber design, which increases heat dissipation efficiency by up to 168%, allowing the ROG Phone 7 series to run games at full speed while maintaining low temperatures. To make ROG Phone 7 a powerful and portable theater, we've increased the effective volume of the ROG Phone 7 series' speakers by 50%[i] and tuned the system in cooperation with audio specialists Dirac. ROG Phone 7 series now delivers amazing 2.1-channel sound when the new AeroActive Cooler 7 accessory — which houses a powerful subwoofer — is attached. Additionally, the stunning 165 Hz Samsung AMOLED display’s peak brightness has significantly increased compared to the previous model. And, the ROG Phone 7 series also features the legendary AI-generated in-game effects, customizable AirTrigger haptic buttons, and continuous game-setting updates by the ROG Gaming team that epitomize the core spirit of ROG — to put the player first! The ROG Phone 7 Ultimate version additionally features the unique ROG Vision matrix display on its rear, and the GameCool 7 thermal system is enhanced with the innovative AeroActive Portal. No-compromise performance The mighty ROG Phone 7 series was built without compromises, unleashing the awesome gaming power of the flagship 3.2 GHz Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 Mobile Platform, which is 15% faster and 15% more power-efficient than the previous generation. It's paired with up to 16 GB of 8,533 Mbps LPDDR5X RAM, and a 512 GB UFS 4.0 ROM that's twice as fast as UFS 3.0. It's ready for Wi-Fi 7* (802.11be) with Qualcomm® FastConnect™ 7800, supporting ultra-fast 320 MHz channels and Multi-Link operation, with game-changing latency performance benefits. Thanks to Snapdragon Elite Gaming™, the ROG Phone 7 supports real-time hardware-accelerated ray tracing. This means that for supported games, gamers can enjoy hyper-realistic reflections — particularly on water and metal surfaces — that add a new dimension to the gaming experience. All this power is enhanced even further by the unrivaled Armoury Crate performance manager, which gives gamers the finest control over performance and tuning settings. To keep pace with the fastest action, the ROG Phone 7 series uses a 165 Hz Samsung AMOLED display with a 720 Hz touch-sampling rate and a Delta E <1 color accuracy for superb visuals. We've also increased the brightness to 1,500 nits for easier viewing outside. The superb visuals are tuned in collaboration with leading visual-processing company Pixelworks® for world-beating color accuracy. It's a display without compare. Additionally, the ROG Phone 7 Ultimate features ROG Vision, a unique matrix color display on the rear of the phone that exemplifies the daring innovation behind the ROG brand. This creative feature can showcase awesome animations triggered by system events, such as charging status, incoming calls, X Mode activation, and more. Gamers can even create their own personalized animations, further enhancing the uniqueness of the ROG Phone 7 Ultimate. With ROG Vision, gamers can express their true style and embrace the full potential of this cutting-edge technology. No-compromise power efficiency To minimize power consumption without compromising performance, the ROG Phone 7 series leverages the 15% improvement in power efficiency offered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 Mobile Platform, enhanced with the best ever GameCool 7 thermal system to cool the CPU from all directions. This uses a three-pronged approach. For short sessions, the Boron Nitride (BN) thermal compound on one side of the CPU reduces throttling. Mid-length sessions are taken care of by the bigger vapor chamber and graphite sheets on the other side of the CPU. Lastly, for marathon sessions the AeroActive Cooler 7 — with its fan positioned right over the CPU module — kicks into play for AI-powered active cooling, featuring a Peltier element for extra cooling performance. In the ROG Phone 7 Ultimate, cooling is enhanced even further with the world-leading AeroActive Portal. This air inlet activates automatically when the AeroActive Cooler is attached, directing a constant flow of cool air from the cooler onto the cooling fins of the vapor chamber. This efficiently dispels the heat generated by the SoC, leading to a notable boost in both gaming performance and battery endurance. When the AeroActive Portal is activated, the phone's thermal efficiency can increase by up to 20%. The new rapid-cycle vapor chamber in the ROG Phone 7 has been completely redesigned – it's bigger and uses new technology inside. Instead of the usual pillar-shaped structures, it uses special trident-shaped wick columns on the long edges of the chamber to improve efficiency. Additionally, there are six liquid-return channels that act as highways for water to flow back to the SoC ready for the next thermal cycle. The thermally-efficient graphite sheets in the ROG Phone 7 have also been made bigger and have been reshaped to maximize heat transfer from the mainboard and RF board. Finally, the AeroActive Cooler 7 features not only an improved fan with more blades for higher back pressure, but also a built-in thermoelectric Peltier cooler for maximum cooling power. The revolutionary DualCool design ensures that while the rear of the phone is cooled by the Peltier cooler, cooling air is also directed across the phone's screen for maximum cooling efficiency. No-compromise gaming Mobile gamers have never experienced phones that sound as good as the ROG Phone 7 series. The twin front-firing 12 x 16 mm speakers — with 50% more effective volume than previously — are aided by the five-magnet, super-linear 13 x 38 mm sub-woofer in the AeroActive 7 cooler, which enhances bass volume by 77% for unbeatable 2.1 sound in games or movies when the cooler is attached. Fine-tuning in cooperation with the audio experts at Dirac ensures unrivaled sound quality. From its 3.5 mm headphone jack to its Dirac Virtuo™ For Headphone theater-like spatial sound, the ROG Phone 7 series has all the technology for all the sound. Snapdragon Sound™ technology support enables super-low-latency high-fidelity Bluetooth® audio, so whatever the user's listening choice, their ears will thank them for the ROG Phone 7. New software features enhance the gaming experience even further. X Sense helps gamers to detect key onscreen events, such as when an important new item appears on the map or an enemy is approaching, with a pop-up notification. And if a gamer dispenses with multiple rivals in a single manoeuvre, X Sense adds visual effects to add to the celebration. X Capture is an AI tool that automatically records memorable moments in the battle, such as vanquishing an enemy or wining the match. The renowned AirTrigger ultrasonic controls give gamers unrivaled fingertip control over their games for a console-like experience. They support a wide range of gestures, including Dual Action, Press and Lift, and Gyroscope Aiming. There are also 10 motion controls and an X-axis linear motor that provides powerful haptic feedback, taking gamers into the heart of the action. It also enables the superb Vibration Mapping feature, which enhances the touch experience by providing adjustable haptic feedback for virtual on-screen buttons. [i] Compared with ROG Phone 6.

Republic of Gamers (ROG) today announced the second project in its ongoing collaboration with ACRONYM®, a leading technical apparel company, to create the ROG Flow Z13-ACRNM RMT02 — bringing together the world of fashion, art, tech, Web3 and gaming in a powerful tablet. Available for sale worldwide starting April 3, 2023, the device features pro-level specs, including an Intel® Core™ i9-13900H processor and NVIDIA® GeForce® RTX 4070 Laptop GPU. Containing that outsized power is a tablet-sized chassis that’s designed to encourage portability and real-world use. The beautifully intricate, custom-machined aluminum creates rigidity. An ingeniously designed integrated carry system uses a versatile strap that lets the device become its own transport system and allows use in multiple modes. Rubber holds are inset to provide grip in every orientation, and the corners are reinforced to keep the machine safe from accidental bumps or drops. ROG x ACRONYM ACRONYM co-founder Errolson Hugh has been a pioneer in the technical-apparel industry since the company’s founding in 1994. In the decades since, ACRONYM has built an extensive design portfolio dedicated to fusing advanced functionality with high-end technology. Whether they’re collaborating with Nike® or BE@RBRICK, appearing in the Death Stranding game, or creating apparel under its own flag, ACRONYM has a proven track record as a visionary in the apparel industry with a commitment to sourcing top-notch materials to engineer hyper-functional designs that go beyond style. The ROG Flow Z13-ACRNM RMT02 is the second product in the company’s ongoing collaboration with Republic of Gamers. Sharing his enthusiasm for the partnership, Hugh commented: “The design idea of the RMTO2 seeks to make a new proposition. We're trying to reimagine how users interact with the world around them, together with their machine, and do things in a new way. We chose to partner with Republic of Gamers because it has a completely open-minded approach. Its engineers were willing to go into unknown territory, and they had the know-how and the competence to deliver those ideas.” To design the RMT02, Hugh called on experts with unique design experience, starting with industrial designer and feature film concept artist Phil Saunders, best-known for designing the iconic Iron Man suit. Saunders took a visionary approach to the project, having spent his career literally designing for future worlds. The project was spearheaded by Rod Chong, an LA-based creative director and long-time collaborator with Hugh. Working alongside ROG engineers and staff, Hugh’s team entered a years-long design and prototyping process that pushed even ROG’s considerable expertise. About working with the ACRONYM team, Shawn Yen, ROG Vice President of the Gaming Business Unit says: “Working with the ACRONYM team is a process of understanding how we can look at things from a different angle, and approach customer experiences from different perspectives. ACRONYM takes design to a whole new level of thinking how humans interact and use the things around them.” This human-first approach made ACRONYM a natural design partner for the Republic of Gamers. ROG is committed to making premium gaming hardware that’s powerful enough for pro-level work and play, while also being customizable enough that every gamer can express themselves. ACRONYM designs consistently embody their belief that good design is a form of freedom. Through style, audiences can share their story, their way. Ultra-versatile The ROG Flow Z13-ACRNM RMT02 is part of ROG’s 2023 Flow series, which aims to offer ultra-versatile gaming with ultra-thin devices that can adapt to any scenario. The Flow Z13 was the perfect platform for ACRONYM and ROG to expand this versatility to other uses that require pro-spec processing and graphics in a multi-functional hand-held device. The integrated carry system and stabilized grips aid use on the go, and the integrated kickstand easily transforms the RMT02 into a traditional laptop form factor that’s perfect for gaming, creation or viewing content. The kickstand can also be used when the machine is in a portrait orientation, making it the only Z13 capable of hands-free use from both angles. Breathtaking performance The ROG Flow Z13-ACRNM RMT02 features an Intel Core i9-13900H processor NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 Laptop GPU. ROG has also added a MUX Switch and NVIDIA Advanced Optimus to the device, along with a total thermal capacity of 80W. The ROG Intelligent Cooling system has added a vapor chamber here with 50% mainboard coverage. Liquid-metal and arc-flow fans ensure 0db ambient cooling. The device supports XG Mobile and sports the ROG Nebula display with a 16:10 aspect ratio. Other features related to the display include a 165Hz refresh rate, 500nits brightness and 100% DCI-P3 touchscreen panel with Corning® Gorilla® Glass DXC.

It has a full CNC-milled metal chassis and supports 130W fast charging through a Type-C port. Redefining portability and interaction Starting from the ROG Flow Z13 base and incorporating functional elements and the design philosophy of their apparel design, ACRONYM radicalized the compact portability of the Flow Z13-ACRNM RMT02. The device effortlessly transitions between high-end tablet, a powerful, mobile desktop for gaming and an on-the-go creative workstation. The ACRONYM design philosophy advocates ‘open agency’, allowing the user multiple ways to interface with, and use the product — an approach that is obvious throughout the RMT02. Design elements are driven by how the device feels in the user’s hand and how they encourage use in new scenarios. Remarking on the device’s concept, product designer Phil Saunders said: “The thing that is immediately noticed when picking up an RMT02 up is that everything is extremely tactile. The strap system gives the user as much agency as possible in the ways that they can interact with their device: it becomes its own bag. It can be slung over a shoulder. There's a mode that frees both hands, so the user can interact with it on the go.” Driven by the mission to deliver genuine innovation, the collaboration pushed the limits of what’s possible in manufacturing. The machined aluminum, embedded-rubber-grip elements, protective corners, strap system and precision etchings throughout reinforce the notion that this is a precise tool that also took great technical care to make. Designed to be its own carrying case, the robust aluminum chassis undergoes an intensive machining process that presents as both beautifully refined yet raw, displaying evident CNC-path marks. A closer look at the device reveals striking touches, like laser-etched graphics, and customized typefaces and iconography. The Flow Z13-ACRNM RMT02 comes with a custom ACRONYM pouch designed to house the power supply, power cables and pen. The Flow Z13-ACRNM RMT02 will be accompanied by the launch of the WRKGRP BEACON Web3 program, which reimagines the brand-community relationship, adding to the ownership experience with an additional layer of digital and physical collectibles. ACRONYM and ROG are proud to take this step together toward a radical new vision of what users’ experience of personal devices can be. Availability & Pricing The ROG Flow Z13-ACRNM RMT-02 will be available in Greece from Monday, April 3, 2023.
