The Asus ROG Phone 3 may have been spotted on Geekbench
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.
