This is the third iteration of the ASUS ROG Phone that first started in 2018. ASUS ROG Phone 3 Gaming Smartphone ticks all the check boxes of both a serious mobile gaming device and a high-end spec-ed smartphone. It is right up there on the top of the food chain. Well, at least it is for now.
Powering the device is the overclocked Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 series SoC, the 865 Plus, and the powerful chip is backed by up to 16 GB of super-fast LPDDR5 RAM and up to 512 GB UFS 3.1 SSD storage. 16 GB of memory! Now, lets take a moment for that to sink it. Some desktop don’t even have that amount of RAM.
With the ASUS ROG Phone 3, ASUS also up the ante of mobile gaming with an insane 144 Hz refresh rate, 1 ms response time 6.59-inch AMOLED display offering Delta-E color accuracy of less than one. Again, some desktop don’t even have 144 Hz display.
And then there’s the promised of 25 ms touch latency for near-instant touch response, supports for HDR10+, and to top it off, the display has Low Blue Light and Flicker Reduced certifications from TÜV Rheinland.
Other notables include GameCool 3 cooling system, side-mounted charging port, AirTrigger 3 system with motion sensor, programmable ultrasonic touch sensors, dual front-facing speakers tuned in collaboration with audio specialist Dirac, quad microphones and multiple antennas, transparent portion of the back show off the heat sink within, and a massive 6,000 mAh capacity battery with 30 W charger that supports QC 4.0.
Actually there are more, including upgraded X Mode performance-optimization software that bumps up the display refresh rates, enhanced touch sensitivity, and fast network connections. Plus, charging can customized to promote battery longevity.
ASUS ROG Phone 3 is expected to land on North America shores in September 2020. So, keep your eyes peeled if you are massive mobile gamer.
