The ROG Phone 6 that landed in Malaysia a couple of months ago proved to be one of the most powerful gaming phones that money can buy but Asus is looking to top it, or rather, offer more alternatives to aspiring gamers as they’ve just rolled out the new ROG Phone 6D that uses the Dimensity 9000+ processor with even better performance along with a special new ROG Phone 6 Batman Edition.
