Asus launched the ROG Phone 3, its latest gaming flagship Android phone, in July 2020. However, it never materialized on the US or Canadian markets. The device has just appeared on the FCC database, suggesting that it is finally approved for sale in the region.

The ROG Phone 3 arrived as the world's most powerful Android gaming phone of the time, as with its predecessors, at the end of July 2020. It was pitched at most major regions, including Europe, India and North America, on its launch. However, the phone has yet to appear on Asus' US site, or with major retailers in the same country.

This is said to be due to delays in getting the phone approved to use 5G in the region in question. However, this may no longer be the case, as it has been certified by the FCC. This filing, completed on September 22, 2020, may put the latest ROG Phone closer to launch in the US.

Furthermore, another leak suggests it has also been cleared by Canadian authorities. Should this be the case, the 2 countries may have access to the Snapdragon 865+ (or 865 in the Strix edition) processor, up to 12GB of RAM and a USB 3.1 Gen 2 port. Then again, there is no official word from Asus on the availability of this high-powered flagship.

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.
