There are several pleasant surprises in the Asus ROG Phone 6D Ultimate. Therefore, don’t anticipate a Qualcomm processor inside, to start. Asus relied on MediaTek to provide the power for its ROG Phone 6 2022 Ultimate model.
So, do not assume that the phone looks much the same as the newly unveiled ROG Phone 6 Pro just because you can’t see the back of it. Since, it actually features a hidden, motorized cooling port.
Hence, to determine whether all of this makes the ROG Phone 6D Ultimate as exceptional as Asus claims, we are using it alongside the superb ROG Phone 6 Pro.

A cooling port with motorization, really?
The addition of a motorized cooling port on the back of the ROG Phone 6D sets it out significantly from the ROG Phone 6 and 6 Pro in terms of design.
When the AeroActive Cooler 6 is connected to the phone, the AeroActive Cooling Port, as it is known, opens. Instead of just blowing cold air onto the surface of the phone, the Cooler 6 channels it directly inside the device.
According to Asus, it increases heat efficiency by 20%.
As a result the port automatically opens up when the fan is attached. And as soon as it is detached, it closes, eliminating any danger that it will remain open when you don’t want it to.
Therefore, in order to clean it, it can be manually opened.
It has undergone 40,000 operations of testing by Asus, thus it should be highly durable. Additionaly, an auto-retraction system is added to this model from the company’s previous Zenfone Flip.
As a result, if anyone drops the phone by accident, it will immediately close up.
Asus designed the ROG Phone 6D Ultimate with an IPX4 rating despite its rear hole, meaning that it can withstand splashes of water.
Who should buy the ROG Phone 6D Ultimate?
Serious mobile gamers are the primary target audience for the ROG Phone 6D Ultimate. The difficult games can be played for more than an hour each day. Also, the additional cooling will help keep temperatures under control. The ROG Phone 6 Pro has more than enough power, battery life, and features to please even if you play mobile games frequently.
Pricing and accessibility
The Asus ROG Phone 6D Ultimate won’t be made available in the United States. It will be available in the UK and Europe, where it will cost either 1,399 euros or 1,199 British pounds. This comes to about $1,365. The ROG Phone 6D costs 799 pounds or 949 euros, which is roughly $910, and is less expensive but does not have the AeroActive Cooler 6.
The Asus ROG Phone 6 Pro will be available for pre-order through Amazon in the US soon, with prices starting at $999.
The remainder on the phone
The only significant differences between the two phones are the processor and the cooling port. Space Grey is available only on ROG Phone 6D Ultimate and ROG Phone 6D. It is a less expensive model that replaces its bright ROG Vision screen on the rear with the RGB logo.
On the rear is the same 50-megapixel camera seen on the ROG Phone 6 Pro, featuring 13MP wide-angle and 5MP macro sensors.
