A New Era for Gamers: Unveiling the Future with ASUS ROG Ally

It’s a big day for the gaming world. On 3 May, ASUS announced a livestream event on their Youtube channel that will reveal the next generation to their incredibly popular gaming handheld, the ASUS ROG Ally. When it was first released on 13 June 2023, the ROG Ally quickly became one of the strongest competitors in the mobile gaming space, going head-to-head with the likes of Steam Deck OLED and even Lenovo Legion Go. Now, suggestions of there being a successor, the ROG Ally 2, are abounding, and ASUS is given an official date for its livestream event that teased just that – ‘the new ROG Ally’. The article will be a walk-through of what is known so far, and also what to expect in the next iteration of this fantastic portable gaming machine.

What We Know About the Next ROG Ally

The Anticipation Builds

However, with ASUS ROG remaining mum on just what we should expect, it seems that the livestream event, which is set to occur on 9 May 2024 at 12 p.m. PT / 3 p.m.ET, will finally reveal what fans can expect with the next iteration of the ROG Ally. With exacts details remaining under wraps, gaming enthusiasts are excited to see what the device has to offer and are certainly hoping this livestream brings us a detailed look at the successor to ROG Ally.

Where to Catch the Big Reveal

Those eager to see the ROG Ally for themselves can do so live on Wednesday, 10 May by tuning in to the livestream of the reveal on ASUS ROG’s official Global YouTube channel. This announcement will no doubt be a pivotal moment for ASUS’s Republic of Gamers outfit and the company as a whole as it looks to blaze a trail into the next era of gaming handhelds.

Desired Improvements for the Next ROG Ally

Addressing the Heat

In fact, one of the only sticking points with its first Terminator model, the ROG Ally, has been that it overheats, and that some annoyances have been introduced by the microSD cards. It will be fixed, and I noticed the next-gen model will be a priority for ASUS ROG’s engineering team.

A Spectrum of Choices

The original ROG Ally came mostly in a pristine white colour scheme. But gamers are a restless bunch who like variety. Many hope that ASUS will release its new laboratory beast in a range of colours so that gamers can pick a handheld to match their tastes.

User Interface Enhancements

On the flip side, gaming handhelds are such a niche affaire that I sometimes felt as if different industries were each peddling the boxes to others. The ROG Ally’s operating system, for instance, was Windows 11. That’s a powerful (if not quite as easy to work with as a dedicated gaming interface) OS, but one that is of little use to, say, the customer service rep who ensured my box arrived unafflicted with a scratched screen. Fans are hoping for a more minimalist, more gamer-friendly UI at the next pass.

Longer Battery Life, Please!

Regardless of how good a gaming handheld is, battery life will always be a first-order issue. So far, ASUS has improved the battery a great deal with larger capacities and a more efficient processor, but significant additional steps can be taken to extend the life of a device, including making use of the new efficiency of OLED screens. It would be great if they developed one with a whole day’s worth of battery life – that’s still quite ambitious for a device with a 7-inch screen.

The Dream of an OLED Display

And yes, the visuals – vivid OLED colours and deep blacks, if Nvidia makes an ROG Ally model with an OLED screen as expected – are hard to resist. An ROG Ally with an OLED screen could be the first gaming handheld to set a visual benchmark.
