Preorders for Asus’ ROG 6 Android gaming phones are now open in North America

The ROG Phone 6’s gamer reputation extends to its comprehensive ecosystem of accessories, which comes with the introduction of the ROG Phone 6, including a specialized controller and an active cooling system. The ROG Kunai 3 gamepad is an ingenious peripheral that resembles Nintendo’s Joy-Con controllers for the Nintendo Switch. The controllers may be utilized as a stand-alone system or fastened to the accompanying case for the ROG Phone 6. The Kunai 3 includes all of the same inputs as a regular dual analog stick controller, plus a pair of rear paddle inputs. The Kunai 3 is presently available for $149.99 through the ASUS shop.

The AeroActive Cooler 6, which is simply a huge, RGB-enabled heatsink that mount to the rear of the ROG Phone 6, is a more distinctive accessory that works with the ROG Phone 6. The AeroActive Cooler 6’s architecture will be recognizable to anybody who has seen a heatsink for their desktop CPU since it employs a series of thermally conductive surfaces to disperse heat through a cooling fan. The cooler is powered by a USB-C connection from the ROG Phone 6, however, it can be adjusted to get the optimal amount of cooling. The AeroActive cooler costs $99.99 and has a built-in kickstand and RGB lights, although it’s unclear if it can be used with the ROG Kunai 3 controller.
