Last month, Asus confirmed that it will launch its ROG Phone 3 gaming phone in July. However, the company did not disclose the exact launch date at the time. According to a recent report, Asus has now issued an invitation letter for the ROG Phone 3 launch event. The invitation letter confirms that this smartphone will officially arrive on July 22.
ASUS ROG Phone 3 “ROG 2020 Game Changer” launch event will hold in Taiwan, Milan, and New York. The online launch event will start at 11 pm Taiwan time. This will correspond to 5:00 pm in Milan and 11 am in New York.
Recently, all the specifications and images of this phone appeared on TENAA. According to the information on TENAA, this smartphone comes with a built-in 5800 mAh (typical value 6000mAh) large battery. It also has a 30W charger so the charging time wouldn’t be so long. In addition, the huge battery has its disadvantage, this device weighs a whopping 240 grams.
Judging from the ID photo on TENAA, the appearance of the Asus ROG Gaming Phone 3 is almost the same as the previous generation. The main change is that it now comes with a triple rear camera setup. It uses a 64MP main camera. The CPU frequency of the Asus ROG Gaming Phone 3 hit 3.091GHz. This is consistent with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 SoC.
In other respects, the ROG Gaming Phone 3 uses a 6.59-inch display with a resolution of 2340×1080, a maximum of 16GB RAM + 512GB storage, a front-facing 13MPl selfie camera, and a size of 171 × 78 × 9.85 mm.
Moreover, the ROG logo makes a comeback with RGB backlighting. If you recall, Asus partnered with the Chinese gaming giant last year to launch a Tencent version of the ROG Phone II. It was cheaper than the original version, however, it was only available in China. Besides being cheaper, users had to deal with a good amount of pre-loaded Tencent content. Now, the company seems to be gearing up to launch another Tencent branded version of its gaming phone. It may also use the same strategy as the Tencent ROG Phone II. Worth mentioning that the BlackShark was also released in partnership with Tencent. Apparently, the gaming giant is big enough to partner with several companies. We will have to wait for the official launch of this device to see what it offers.
