The ASUS ROG Phone 3
has leaked out numerous times and thus pretty much everything is known about it already from its alleged display dimensions to the camera specs. It was already reported that the phone will have an overclocked version of the Snapdragon 865
under the hood and now a trusted leaker has confirmed that.
claims that the ASUS ROG Phone
3, and not the Samsung Galaxy Note 20
, will be the first smartphone to feature the rumored Snapdragon 865 Plus
chipset. The midcycle refresh will likely entail slightly better performance and improved graphics when compared to the Snapdragon 865. Also expected are optimizations related to gaming.
The phone will reportedly be available in 8GB, 12GB, and 16GB RAM variants, and 128GB, 256GB, and 512GB storage models.
ASUS ROG Phone 3 is pretty much confirmed
Although ASUS has not explicitly confirmed the phone, the accessories page
on its website does mention it. A teaser page
with a countdown timer has also gone live, heralding the arrival of a gaming-centric product.
Design-wise, the ASUS ROG Phone 3 is expected to look a lot like its predecessor. It will probably retain the 6.59-inch AMOLED panel with a refresh rate of 120Hz or higher. Unlike the ROG Phone 2
, it’s tipped to feature three cameras, including 64MP and 13MP sensors. Battery capacity could be anywhere between 5,800mAh and 6,000mAh and the device is also expected to support 30W fast charging.
The dimensions and weight will supposedly remain the same and this, coupled with a largely unchanged design, will ensure that older accessories work with the new version.
Since the teaser page also mentions New York and Milan, chances are that the 5G
ASUS ROG Phone 3 will also be released
in the US and Europe. If history is any indication, the phone will go on sale in September.
