First Snapdragon 865 Plus powered phone is reportedly landing on July 22
The ASUS ROG Phone 3 has leaked out numerous times and thus pretty much everything is known about it already from its alleged display dimensions to the camera specs. It was already reported that the phone will have an overclocked version of the Snapdragon 865 under the hood and now a trusted leaker has confirmed that.
Ishan Agarwal claims that the ASUS ROG Phone 3, and not the Samsung Galaxy Note 20, will be the first smartphone to feature the rumored Snapdragon 865 Plus chipset. The midcycle refresh will likely entail slightly better performance and improved graphics when compared to the Snapdragon 865. Also expected are optimizations related to gaming.
The phone will reportedly be available in 8GB, 12GB, and 16GB RAM variants, and 128GB, 256GB, and 512GB storage models.
ASUS ROG Phone 3 is pretty much confirmed
Although ASUS has not explicitly confirmed the phone, the accessories page on its website does mention it. A teaser page with a countdown timer has also gone live, heralding the arrival of a gaming-centric product.
Design-wise, the ASUS ROG Phone 3 is expected to look a lot like its predecessor. It will probably retain the 6.59-inch AMOLED panel with a refresh rate of 120Hz or higher. Unlike the ROG Phone 2, it's tipped to feature three cameras, including 64MP and 13MP sensors. Battery capacity could be anywhere between 5,800mAh and 6,000mAh and the device is also expected to support 30W fast charging.
The dimensions and weight will supposedly remain the same and this, coupled with a largely unchanged design, will ensure that older accessories work with the new version.
