This should be the first gaming phone to be powered by the flagship Dimensity 9000+ SoC, since most gaming phones are powered by Snapdragon SoCs. A recent leak revealed an AnTuTu score of 11,46,594 points with 29,1317 points for CPU, and 43,0867 points for GPU.
Other than the SoC, this is said to retain other specifications as the Snapdragon version, including a 6.78-inch FHD+ 165Hz AMOLED screen, 50MP IMX766 sensor and a 6000mAh battery with 65W fast charging.
The ROG Phone 6D could be cheaper than the Snapdragon version. We should know the price and other details when the phone goes official next month.
