A device listed as the ASUS_I003DD has just been spotted on the Geekbench 5 website. As this company's gaming phone's 2nd generation was the I001Dx, it is possible that the 2020 ROG Phone has finally broken cover. This model number has also been certified by the Wi-Fi Alliance.

Given that the ROG Phone II did not launch until July 2019, or see a release until September, it would be very surprising to see its successor leak this early in the next year on - normally. However, 2020 is no typical year, and now there is evidence that Asus may have adapted its phone-making cycle accordingly.

It comes in the form of a new set of results for an "asus ASUS_I003DD". This model number is doing a decent impression, at least, of being a follow-up to that of the II. This possible new gaming phone is described as running Android 10, having 8GB of RAM and having a processor with the hallmarks of the Snapdragon 865.

The last 2 details are slightly surprising, as the ROG Phone series has developed a reputation of going with the very best in flagship processors out there. Last year, this was the 855+ - thus adding fuel to the flames of rumor that there will be no 865+ this year. In addition, it is surprising that a new generation of something often touted as the "world's most powerful phone" would be content with 8GB of RAM even to start with again.

Nevertheless, this potential ROG Phone 3 has posted Geekbench scores that easily match or beat anything with the same SoC as listed - even the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra. Then again, it has yet to measure up against its possible competition, which include the Red Magic 5G and Black Shark 3 series - better yet, this Asus mobile device may even have a Lenovo Legion phone to go up against this year.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
