At present, there is no concrete information on the specs of the ROG Phone 6. However, it seems that it could be equipped with the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset. Hence, it appears that it will rival other upcoming gaming smartphones such as the Red Magic 7S lineup and the Black Shark 6 series.

A 2D render of the ROG Phone 6 and ROG Phone 6 Pro surfaced at the beginning of this year. It revealed that the ROG Phone 6 series will sport a tweaked design as compared to the ROG Phone 5 lineup. The image also showed that the ROG Phone 6 lineup will have a horizontally arranged triple camera unit and a bigger secondary display.

The external screen was fitted in a slanted manner on the ROG Phone 5 series, but the ROG Phone 6 seems to be equipped with a vertical secondary screen. As can be seen in the above renders, the ROG Phone 6 and 6 Pro have different graphics and secondary display designs. Hopefully, the rumour mill will reveal more information on the specs of the ROG Phone 6 lineup.
