(Pocket Lint) – Asus has teamed up with Blizzard Entertainment to release a special edition ROG Phone 6, and this one is themed around Diablo Immortal goodies. So if you’re a fan of the game, or just want to see something a little different from the mainstream, read on (or watch the video below).

It’s not just a phone that’s different from the ordinary. Asus has released the outer packaging. It’s huge and designed to resemble the game’s Horadric Cube, transforming the objects you put into it.

There are also many extras in the box. There is a pouch designed to look like an old leather parchment, with a printed map on the outside. This is something you don’t get on normal edition phones.

It also has a function. Inside, when opened, you’ll have access to charging accessories. This is the 65W wired charger with Type-C port, which can recharge a 6000mAh phone battery in about 42 minutes. Unfortunately, it’s not themed like the packaging and the phone, and neither is the nylon-weave coated USB-C to USB-C charging cable that comes in the other pouch.

The map also hides another feature. Some map elements are only visible under UV light, which is why Asus has included a small UV lamp in the map box. When turned on (after inserting a battery), it highlights hidden marks on the map that you can’t see clearly without it. Under the light, they glow red.

The phone itself comes in another gaming themed box. It is designed to look like a rock from the game world. Inside, you have the phone in front of you, and a neat little box hidden behind that, when opened, reveals a Diablo-themed gold SIM ejector tool.

You’ll also find the ROG Phone case which, like almost everything else, is themed. Like the map, it features hidden elements that glow red under UV light.

As for the phone, the Diablo theme will start as soon as you open it and turn it on. The back of the phone features the same graphic as the outer packaging we saw earlier, and even the first setup screen features a creepy demon figure.

Most of the exterior detailing is on the back of the phone and features the aforementioned figure, along with a finish called ‘Hellfire red’ which when angled right in the light gives you a glowing, moving fire effect.

There are, of course, RGB elements on the phone. Diablo Immortal and ROG logos flashed on the back of the phone. Like the little Diablo Immortal logo on the side.

Other markings are present on the camera protrusion, as well as the inscription “Immortality Awaits”. It has three cameras, with a 50MP primary sensor, a 13MP ultra-wide sensor, and a 5MP macro sensor.

Other than that, it’s the same as every other ROG Phone 6. It has a red-accented SIM tray on the side, and two USB-C ports: one on the bottom edge, and another on the side, designed to clip onto the optional AeroActive cooler. This is a gaming phone, so you have a 3.5mm headphone jack, along with two very loud speakers – one either side of the 6.8-inch AMOLED screen.

It’s an amazing display too – boasting up to a 165Hz refresh rate for ultra-smooth gaming graphics, up to 1200nits of peak brightness, support for HDR10+ content and 1 billion colors.

It’s a similar panel to what we’ve seen on the ROG phone 6 and 6D, and in our tests it’s been fantastic for watching media and gaming.

Other specifications include the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 processor for fast, smooth and efficient performance. It can be ordered in limited numbers now, direct from Asus, priced at £1,099 in the UK or $1,299 in the US.
