A ROG Phone 6 Pro (18/512 GB). Two ROG Phone 6D (12/256 GB and 16/256 GB). A ROG Phone 6D Ultimate (16/512 GB).

With seven models, we thought we’d now have to wait until next year to hear about Asus’ gaming smartphones again. It was bad to meet the Taiwanese firm. In fact, today he presents another version: the ROG Phone 6 Diablo Immortal Edition. This is a custom version of the intermediate ROG Phone 6. So find a Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 platform accompanied by 16 GB of RAM and 512 GB of storage (without possible extension, as always).
The ROG Phone 6 Diablo Immortal is inspired by the great objects of the saga
We had the opportunity to take control of this new version. You can find our video above. But here’s some additional information that we couldn’t include. Starting with the box: it is really very impressive. And it is of very high quality. she is inspired by horadric cube, an artifact that is used in the games of the license to create and customize objects within the game. You will be able to notice the Lord of Terror in all his splendor, as well as a relief in the letters of the name of the smartphone. This box is not interactive, unlike the ones on other ROG Phones.
Inside the box, you find various objects. First a storage box for the smartphone. take the design of the world of stone who, in Diablo’s story, is the cause of the war between Heaven and the Fiery Underworld. What better way to store a gaming smartphone than such an important item? In the smartphone packaging, you will also find a protective cover with two images: on the outside, an image inspired by the shield of serenity and within a terror lord portraitLike in the big box.
A Sanctuary card accompanies the ROG Phone 6 Diablo
Let’s go back to the big box. You will find various additional items there. First of all, a large scroll where is it printed sanctuary map, the world you evolve into Diablo Immortal. Unrolling this card reveals two pockets where the nylon USB Type-C cable and AC adapter for charging the product are located.
It is a very qualitative and “interactive” accessory. In fact, under the Sanctuary map, you have a flashlight that actually works. She is inspired by fahir light, an item that the player wears when they arrive in the Shassar Sea region. This lantern emits a purple light that reveals certain hidden inscriptions on the map. Last accessory: the tool to open the SIM card drawer. It is personalized and uses the logo of the game.
The ROG Phone 6 Diablo is primarily aimed at fans of the series.
Now let’s take a look at the smartphone. As you can see, this is a “standard” ROG Phone 6: not D, not Pro, not d (Ultimate). So there is no ROG Vision or AeroActive Portal on the back, but just a RGB lighting. Usually this lighting represents the ROG logo. Here is the logo of the game. You also have a screen printed design on the back, very nice. Finally, the color of the phone is called ” hellfire red “. And it’s obviously exclusive to this version. Let’s not forget the software side: Asus has customized the ROG UI with themed wallpapers and tweaked icons. It’s very pretty.
Technically, the ROG Phone 6 Diablo Immortal is a Standard ROG Phone 6. There is no improvement (or degradation) of the technical sheet and performance. We recommend that you read our test to learn more. Finally, let’s end with the painful: the price. This smartphone, with all its accessories, is sold 1329 euro. Or 100 euros more than the ROG Phone 6 Batman. It is a bit expensive for someone just looking for a gaming smartphone. For Diablo fans (and without getting into the controversy about the game’s business model), it’s a nice collector’s item. And when you are passionate, exclusivity does not have to have a price.
