The Asus ROG Phone 3 will have a 6.59-inch display and a 5,800 mAh battery, according to a TENAA listing. The ROG Phone 3 will be a dual-SIM dual-standby 5G-capable device featuring 2x2 Wi-Fi 6 ax and 30 W fast charging and is expected to launch with Android 10 some time by end of this month or early July.

The Asus ROG Phone 3 has been referenced in quite a few leaks by now with a recent Geekbench leak more or less confirming the Snapdragon 865 SoC and 12 GB RAM. The ROG Phone 3 has now been spotted on TENAA, which throws further light into the specifications of the phone including its size and battery. 

According to the TENAA listing, the Asus_I003DD device sports a 6.59-inch display and has dimensions of 171 x 78 x 9.85 mm. From previous leaks, we know that the I003DD device indeed refers to the ROG Phone 3. The phone is also indicated as having a dual-SIM dual-standby function and is 5G enhanced mobile broadband (eMBB)-capable. 

The TENAA listing indicates the operating system as just Android, but it is likely that it may launch with Android 10 and later get updated to Android 11 similar to how the ROG Phone 2 initially launched with Android 9 Pie and later got updated to Android 10. This is likely because Asus does a heavy customization of the base AOSP image to cater to the gaming features of the device and would have been working on these features since quite some time. Also, Android 11 has just transitioned to the beta stage and given the expected launch timeline, it is unlikely that the ROG Phone 3 will come with Android 11 out-of-the-box.

The TENAA listing does not yet detail all the specifications of the device and neither shows any pictures. We will likely see these details getting added as we near the official launch.

Recently, the ROG Phone 3 was also spotted in the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC), 3C, TUV Rheinland, and Wi-Fi Alliance certification websites confirming 30W fast charging and 2x2 Wi-Fi 6 support. The Asus ROG Phone 3 is expected to launch alongside the ZenFone 7 some time by end of June or early July.

I am a cell and molecular biologist and computers have been an integral part of my life ever since I laid my hands on my first PC which was based on an Intel Celeron 266 MHz processor, 16 MB RAM and a modest 2 GB hard disk. Since then, I’ve seen my passion for technology evolve with the times. From traditional floppy based storage and running DOS commands for every other task, to the connected cloud and shared social experiences we take for granted today, I consider myself fortunate to have witnessed a sea change in the technology landscape. I honestly feel that the best is yet to come, when things like AI and cloud computing mature further. When I am not out finding the next big cure for cancer, I read and write about a lot of technology related stuff or go about ripping and re-assembling PCs and laptops.
