When a smartphone brand gets a collaboration with one of the most renowned superhero characters, you know they’ve made it into the big leagues as ASUS have announced a special ROG Phone 6 Batman edition in collaboration with DC and Warner Bros Consumer Products.
What is the ROG Phone 6 Batman Edition
The ROG Phone 6 Batman edition is functionally identical to its more mainstream siblings but has a special illuminated Aura RGB Batman logo on the back and a unique Gotham City Black semi-matte finish that gives it a slightly different appearance along with the usual custom wallpaper and a new charging animation and theme pack
To complement its rather unusual aesthetics, it also has an array of Batman themed accessories – you get a Batman Aero case to protect the phone, a SIM ejector pin with the Batman logo on it emplaced on a stylised pedestal that resembles the Gotham city horizon and most unique of all, a compact USB-C powered Bat Signal projector to project one of two different Bat Signals onto a nearby surface. Last but not least, you also get a hard-shell travel case that securely protects the ROG Phone 6 Batman Edition and its slew of accessories.
In terms of hardware, the ROG Phone 6 Batman Edition has yet to state the exact configuration of RAM and storage available but the rest are effectively known for now and mirror the more mainstream standard variants. You get a 6.78-inch Samsung manufactured AMOLED display with FHD+ (2,448 x 1080 pixel) resolution and 165Hz refresh rate, the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 processor built on a 4nm process or a MediaTek Dimensity 9000+ CPU and, in theory, up to 16GB RAM and up to 512GB storage. Keeping it powered is a 6,000mAh battery.
ROG Phone 6 Batman Edition availability in Malaysia
There are no specific details from ASUS Malaysia in terms of when or if the ROG Phone 6 Batman edition will arrive in Malaysia or how much it would even cost but we’ll keep you posted the moment we get any updates.
