For the first time, an 8+ Gen 1 mobile processor reference prototype has been experienced by HotHardware. The 3DMark stress test is a good indicator of long-term performance, and it fared well across a wide range of benchmarks. Qualcomm expects a greater battery life from the new mobile chip it is developing.
Asus plans to introduce the ROG Phone 6 Ultimate to the global market on May 31, 2022. According to reports, it’s expected to come with 16GB of RAM, 512GB of storage, and a 6000 mAh battery when it first launches.
Also confirmed on Weibo by the Asus ROG account, this Chinese phone version has a distinct “Tencent Games” branding on the rear and slightly different software from the global market. However, it will still include an updated Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1.
