Leaked video confirms familiar design for the Asus ROG Phone 3
The Asus ROG Phone 3 has been leaked again, this time in a hands-on video of the device. Seemingly first posted on Weibo, the video has been uploaded to YouTube by Sparrows News. We have included the video below, but please be aware that it could be pulled at any time. It also contains some rather unnecessary music, but you do not need to have the volume on to appreciate the video.
The video confirms that the ROG Phone 3 will look almost indistinguishable from its predecessor. Asus has retained the RGB ROG logo for example, and has stayed close to the angular design of the back of the device. The Republic of Gamers branding has been replaced with Tencent Games, though. The front of the device seems largely unchanged too, although Asus appears to have ditched the copper finish that it applied to the front-firing speakers of the ROG Phone 2.
The ROG Phone 3 is touted as having a 6.59-inch, 1080p and high refresh-rate AMOLED panel. This will be complemented with an overclocked Snapdragon 865 SoC, 16 GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 512 GB of UFS 3.0 flash storage. The hands-on video also confirms that the presence of a 64 MP Quad Bayer primary camera, along with the inclusion of two other rear-facing sensors. A 6,000 mAh battery should be underpinning the ROG Phone 3, too. There is no word on a release date yet, though.
