This might be our first look at the ASUS ROG Phone 6 series.

Highlights
  • ASUS ROG Phone 6 and Phone 6 Pro renders reveal the complete rear design of the phones.
  • They will feature a horizontal camera island with triple camera lenses, vertical secondary screen, and ROG branding.
  • The ASUS ROG Phone 6 series may launch in March 2022.

ASUS unveiled the ROG Phone 5, ROG Phone 5 Pro, and ROG Phone 5 Ultimate back in March 2021. Later in August, it refreshed the series with ROG Phone 5s and 5s Pro. Now, it looks like the company is preparing for the launch of the successor, probably dubbed as the ROG Phone 6 and ROG Phone 6 Pro. New 2D renders of the flagships have surfaced on the internet, courtesy of EqualLeaks. Design-wise, they both look quite identical to the ROG Phone 5, with changes limited to the camera arrangement, secondary display, and the back panel’s graphics.

The ROG Phone 6 series has a slightly different camera design compared to its predecessor. It will have a horizontal camera island with triple camera lenses on both the ROG Phone 6 and 6 Pro. Also, the secondary display on the ROG Phone 6 seems to be bigger when compared to ROG Phone 5’s POMOLED screen. The screen will be vertical this time around unlimited the slanted panel on the predecessor.
