- Asus confirmed the ROG Phone 3 will launch later this month.
- The news corroborates earlier reports of a launch in July.
- Asus is still holding the phoneâ€™s specs close to its chest.
When the Asus ROG Phone 2 launched late last year, we dubbed it one of the best gaming phones ever. Itâ€™s not without stiff competition either. Itâ€™s now confirmed that the Asus ROG Phone 3 will get its chance to challenge that title later this month.
According to an event countdown timer published by Asus, the â€œgame changerâ€� is set to debut July 22, at 11PM ET. This also corroborates earlier reports that the phone would launch sometime this month. Check out a screenshot of the timer below.
As for features, the ROG Phone 3 could boast a bumper hardware list complete with a Snapdragon 865 Plus chipset, a 6,000mAh battery, and up to 16GB of RAM. Thereâ€™s also the possibility of a 64MP primary camera, an in-display fingerprint sensor, and the return of the RGB logo at the rear.
There could be some annoyances for gamers too. A previous TENAA listing suggests the phone wonâ€™t have a 3.5mm headphone port, making for a departure from the outgoing ROG Phone 2.
Weâ€™ll have to wait for concrete confirmation of those specs and the price, but if the ROG Phone 2 is any indication, the ROG Phone 3 could be priced beyond $899. Need more gaming goodness? Then check out our coverage below.
