ROG Phone 6D Ultimate design is allegedly confirmed via TENAA as Asus teases a cooling system upgrade for the flagship smartphone
The 6D Ultimate is thought to become a new top-end addition to the premium Asus ROG Phone series with MediaTek's latest flagship mobile SoC. It has reportedly been approved for sale by the Chinese regulator TENAA ahead of its mid-September 2022 launch. Meanwhile, its maker claims to have prepared new "thermal technology" for the potential mobile gaming powerhouse.
Asus has announced that it will unveil the ROG Phone 6D Ultimate later in September 2022. However, the hardware reveal set for that date has reportedly been spoiled thanks to images leaked in advance. Now, those rumors have been corroborated by the appearance of the same device on TENAA.
This smartphone is, as before, depicted as looking much like the existing, Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1-powered ROG Phone 6 Pro, although it is finished in dark gray rather than black or white. Asus has not responded to this new leak, although it has been teasing the 6D Ultimate in other ways.
The OEM now hints that the potential series-leader will launch with appropriately "Ultimate thermal technology" that involves "airflow unlike any ROG Phone before".
It seems the "advanced" cooling properties might be delivered via a new and strikingly complex moving part that might fit into the mysterious new insert seen on the back of the ROG Phone 6D Ultimate in leaks to date. This new hardware tweak and its function might thus be outlined in full on September 19, 2022.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
