ASUS is finally launching its ROG Phone 3 gaming smartphone in the Philippines next month, according to the company’s latest announcement. The company’s flagship gaming smartphone will be officially launched in the country on August 15, 2020, via a digital launch event where the company also plans to announce the device’s pricing, accessories, and release promos.
The latest edition of ASUS’s gaming smartphone features a 6.59-inch AMOLED display that has a refresh rate of 144Hz and a response time of just 1ms. The display also provides a Delta-E color accuracy of less than one as well as a 25-millisecond touch latency. The phone’s 10-bit display also supports HDR10+ for high-dynamic range content.
The ROG Phone 3 is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 Plus processor with 5G support, up to 16GB of LPDDR5 RAM, up to 512GB of UFS 3.1 storage, and a large 6,000 mAh battery. ASUS is also releasing an ROG Phone 3 Strix Edition, which is equipped with a Snapdragon 865 processor, 8GB of LPDDR5 RAM, and 256GB of UFS 3.1 storage.
ASUS has also equipped the ROG Phone 3 with the AirTrigger 3 system, an improved version of the AirTrigger 2 found on the ROG Phone 2, which now features motion sensors to add an even wider range of controls to the ultrasonic touch sensors such as swipe gestures and a dual-partition feature that turns the two AirTriggers into four, ostensibly adding two more shoulder buttons.
Other features of the ROG Phone 3 include a new GameCool 3 cooling system, the return of the side-mounted USB Type-C connector, and a new AeroACtive Cooler 3 clip-on external fan accessory. Other accessories that ASUS has announced for the ROG Phone 3 so far include the ROG Kunai 3 gamepad, the ROG Lighting Armor Case, the ROG Clip, the TwinView Dock 3, and Mobile Desktop Dock.
The ASUS ROG Phone 3 is set to launch in the Philippines on August 15, 2020, at 8:00 PM during the company’s digital launch event. More information on the ROG Phone 3 and the upcoming digital launch event can be found on the ASUS ROG Facebook page.
