ASUS is a computer brand and IKEA is a furniture company. It might seem like neither company have anything in common, but that might no longer be the case. ASUS’ gaming division, ROG, have announced a partnership with IKEA in which both companies will be teaming up to create gaming furniture.
Hate the camera notch we’re seeing in smartphones today? Not a fan of the popup camera design? If you’re a fan of neither, then you might be interested in checking out the ASUS Zenfone 7 Pro that was recently announced, a new flagship handset from ASUS that sports a flip-up camera design.
When it comes to small form factor keyboards like 60% models, those are typically used more in the keyboard enthusiast circle. However, it seems that these smaller form factor keyboards are starting to catch on because the other day, Razer announced the 60% Huntsman Mini, and now it looks like ASUS has joined in as well.
What we’re seeing these days with compact laptops is that they tend to sacrifice IO ports in favor of portability. This can prove to be rather inconvenient for some users, so if you can appreciate having a multitude of IO ports on your laptop, then ASUS might have something for you.
Mesh routers are great if you’re looking to blanket your home in WiFi and could be a way to help speed up your internet if your part of the home doesn’t have particularly good coverage. Now, there are many mesh routers in the market today, but if you’d like to stay on top of things and keep yourself futureproofed, ASUS might have something for you.
Back in 2019, ASUS announced a rather interesting laptop in the form of the ASUS ZenBook Duo Pro. What made this particular laptop so unique that it came with a secondary 4K display built right above the keyboard, which if you think about it, is essentially like a souped up version of Apple’s Touch Bar on its MacBooks.
The problem with a lot of small form factor PC builds is that it can be hard to find high-end powerful GPUs that can fit into them, but we suppose to be fair, these kind of builds tend to focus more on size rather than power. However, if you do fancy putting together a SFF build, ASUS might have something of interest to you.
Back in 2018, YouTuber MKBHD decided to run a blind smartphone camera test in which he pitted a variety of phones released in 2018 against each other, where users would then vote on social media which is their favorite photo. The results were very surprising in which the budget (but flagship) Pocophone F1 nearly walked away the winner.
Ubergizmo’s Best of IFA AwardsEditor's Pick
IFA is officially going on until Sept 11, but if you haven’t had time to follow all the IFA news, our Best of IFA 2019 is what we want you to take away from this show. These are the products that caught our attention for their quality, novelty, usefulness, or daringness.
In the display industry, there are displays made for everyday use, there are displays designed and optimized for gaming, and then there are also displays aimed at the working professional who might have need for a more color-accurate display when editing photos or videos. If you fall into the latter category, ASUS might have something for you.
Usually when it comes to GPUs in laptops, due mostly to the size, it would be near-impossible to fit a full-sized GPU into it. This usually means that most laptops with discrete GPU options are running a “mobile” version of the GPU, which means that it isn’t as powerful as its desktop counterpart.
If you do a lot of business while on the move, then chances are you can appreciate a laptop that isn’t too bulky or heavy, especially if you’re going to carry it around all day. If you are interested in such a laptop, you’re in luck because at IFA 2019, ASUS has taken the wraps off the ASUSPRO B9, which the company claims is the “world’s lightest” business laptop.
The idea of gaming smartphones sounds a bit gimmicky, since for the most part they tend to share the same hardware as most flagship handsets. However, it appears that the recently launched ASUS ROG Phone 2 is quite a hit over in China where it has been reported that pre-orders for the handset are pretty impressive.
ASUS had confirmed that its upcoming ROG Phone 2 will be using the slightly overclocked Snapdragon 855 Plus mobile platform. The company has finally unveiled its new gaming smartphone today. It does indeed come with the Snapdragon 855 Plus mobile platform from Qualcomm. The specs are on another level entirely and in a league of their own compared to any other Android device on the market today.
