Asus 'phone with a fan' among weird gadgets at Computex


A gaming phone with a removable fan, and a dual-screen laptop are among the new gadgets on show at the Computex conference in Taiwan.

Computer giant Asus revealed a powerful handset designed for gamers that comes with a clip-on fan to keep it cool during "strenuous gaming sessions".

Asus's gaming phone is the first Android-powered smartphone to be produced under the Republic of Gamers brand.

Its screen is capable of displaying 90 frames per second (fps) - more than regular phones - to make games play more smoothly.

There is also a range of accessories, including clip-on controllers that are vaguely reminiscent of the Nintendo Switch console.

A clip-on fan is also included in the box to stop the high-performance phone overheating.



Boot note Does not seem to have a Notch Screen :)

All I can say is "Who the nots" care about a screen that can do 90FPS" are eyes can't even adjust to that. Godz up there is probably like "oh these people messed up my way of life :twitch::ohwell:

If Motion Blur Reduction technology is in play, you definitely can see the difference. And even without... you can see the difference, assuming of course your monitor is capable. With soccer balls, the difference between 60 and 120 fps is very obvious even with MBR activity disabled ...60 and 90 a bit less so

http://frames-per-second.appspot.com/

Good reading here as the same arguments for "can't see above 60 fps", were made not so long ago for 30 fps. Air Force testing has shown that the eye can see images at 200+ fps ... ands equatng TV images at 24-30fps with motion blur is not the same as digital rendering where the MB triuck doesn't factor in:

Looking at the size of that thing, it's a Phablet, oh and dual screen laptops are not a new thing.

Soon "smatphones" like this will become a norm:

Pockets are already too small, so we might carry backpacks for smartphones with 10" screen. But don't worry, according to smartphone designers & manufacturers, they'll be only 3 mm thick and thus ultra-hyper-turbo portable. :kookoo::kookoo:

:banghead:

They are already too big and now they are pushing "gaming" smartphones. :kookoo::shadedshu:

Don't get me wrong, there's nothing wrong having a powerful smartphone, but manufacturers should also care about portability and comfortable use. That's why smartphones over 140 mm in length and over 70 mm in width are uncomfortable, regardless of their thickness.

On the other side, gaming isn't comfortable on 5", 6" or 10" screen. I'll rather play games on a bigger screen like a boss.
