Asus ROG Phone 6D Ultimate launching on September 19

Features the MediaTek Dimensity 9000+ SOC

Last updated:

The ROG Phone 6 duo launched last month, and both phones featured the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 SOC. Now, Asus is preparing for the launch of yet another phone under this series that is named the ROG Phone 6D Ultimate. This isn’t the first time we are getting an “Ultimate” gaming phone by Asus. Last year, the brand launched ROG Phone 5 Ultimate under the ROG Phone 5 series. It was different from the other ROG Phone 5 series devices in just the aesthetics and the storage. But the same is not the case with the upcoming ROG Phone 6D Ultimate.

This is going to be the first gaming phone by Asus powered by a MediaTek chip. Currently, the most powerful chipset by MediaTek is the Dimensity 9000+. And the same SOC powers the ROG Phone 6D Ultimate.

Asus has not shared any other detail apart from the SOC, so we do not know what the device looks like or what the price is going to be. Anyways, the Dimensity 9000+ offers a 5% boost in the CPU performance over the non-Plus version, thanks to a higher clocked Cortex-X2 core (3.2GHz vs. 3.05GHz). The GPU performance is improved by 10%. Like the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1, the Dimensity 9000+ is built on the 4nm TSMC process.

As per Digital Chat Station, the phone has a 6,000mAh battery, 65W fast charging, a 165Hz Samsung panel, and a 50MP Sony IMX766 camera sensor. In short, the Asus ROG Phone 6D Ultimate seems like just the ROG Phone 6 / 6 Pro but with a MediaTek Dimensity 9000+ instead of Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1. That also means the price of the 6D Ultimate may be lower than the ROG Phone 6 or 6 Pro.

As per a screenshot, on the AnTuTu benchmark, the ROG Phone 6D Ultimate scores around 1,146,594, which is similar to or even better than what the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 powered ROG Phone 6 and 6 Pro score. So, it would be interesting to see at what price the Asus ROG Phone 6D Ultimate is going to launch and whether it would be cheaper or more expensive than other ROG Phone 6 series devices.
