ASUS ROG Phone 3: Design of flagship gaming smartphone confirmed ahead of its imminent release
ASUS' next ROG Phone is arriving next week, with the company hosting an online launch event for its third-generation gaming smartphone on July 22. The ROG Phone 3 has appeared several times over the last few weeks, including appearances at several certification agencies. The device has appeared on Geekbench a few times too.
Now, the device has been by Evan Blass and Linus Sebastian. According to a post on r/LinusTechTips, Linus appeared with the ROG Phone 3 on a video posted on Floatplane. The device pictured is unquestionably the ROG Phone 3 as it has more rear-facing cameras than the ROG Phone 2 does.
While the posted on r/LinusTechTips does not reveal the full design of the ROG Phone 3, Evan Blass has. Taking to his Patreon page, Blass has published what appears to be marketing renders of the front and back of the ROG Phone 3. The renders confirm, as we have previously reported, that the ROG Phone 3 will have a 64 MP Quad Bayer rear-facing camera, along with secondary and tertiary sensors. There are also two LED flash modules, along with the visual flourishes that ASUS brought to the ROG Phone 2.
The device has noticeable top and bottom bezels like its predecessor, too. The prominent speaker grilles from previous generations return too. ASUS is expected to equip the ROG Phone 3 with a 6,000 mAh battery, along with up to 16 GB of RAM and 512 GB of storage. Qualcomm's new Snapdragon 865+ SoC will be underpinning the system, which offers some modest improvements over the Snapdragon 865.
