Here’s when the Asus ROG Phone 3 will launch (hint: it’s soon)
- Asus and Tencent Games have confirmed a July launch window for the ROG Phone 3.
- Thereâ€™s no word on an exact launch date though.
- The two companies launched a Tencent-branded ROG Phone 2 in China last year.
The Asus ROG Phone series has established itself as the top gaming phone around, owing to flagship internals, a high refresh rate, big batteries, and extra inputs. Weâ€™ve been eagerly awaiting the arrival of the Asus ROG Phone 3, and it looks like we wonâ€™t have to wait much longer.
Asus and Tencent Games both uploaded a poster to Weibo that confirms a July launch window for the ROG Phone 3. The firms didnâ€™t give us an exact date though. Nevertheless, the duo confirmed plans to cooperate in China too, presumably meaning weâ€™ll see a Tencent-branded device in the market. Check out the poster below.
News of the July launch window comes a few days after the phone was listed on Chinaâ€™s TENAA regulatory website. The listing points to an overclocked Snapdragon 865 chipset, up to 16GB of RAM, a 6,000mAh battery, and a 64MP main camera.
The latter feature was corroborated by a real-world image of the supposed ROG Phone 3 that surfaced last week. The image shows 64MP branding on the back of the phone, as well as what appears to be a triple rear camera combo.
Thereâ€™s no word on pricing just yet, but the ROG Phone 2 retailed for $899 globally. So weâ€™d expect a similar price (if not slightly higher) for the new phone when it eventually leaves China.
