Asus ROG Phone III appears in hands-on video
Earlier, a couple of images surfaced giving us our first glimpse in Asus’ upcoming gaming phone the ROG Phone III. Apparently, the image was just a screenshot from a short hands-on video showing off the smartphone. Recently, we got the video that reveals the smartphone in all its glory. We can once again spot the triple camera setup horizontally-aligned. Moreover, the ROG logo makes a comeback with RGB backlighting.
However, there is something quite important to notice in the hands-on video – the Tencent Games logo. 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 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 a partnership with Tencent. Apparently, the gaming giant is big enough to partner with several companies.
