Asus and its gaming branch are going to launch the ROG Phone 3 on July 22, as confirmed twice. However, the company is planning a separate event in China, where we expect to see some special editions that will be targeted to the local audience.
The Republic of Gamers profile on Weibo posted a video, asking fans to tune in for a “powerful release” on July 23 at 7 PM local time, along with a short 10-second video.
We expect something similar to happen with the ROG Phone 3, and that’s why there is a market-specific event. The custom version is likely to cost about 30-40% less, but it might be limited to a certain carrier.
Aside from the memory, nothing else is likely to change – we expect a phone with Snapdragon 865+ chipset, a 144 Hz refresh rate of the 6.59” OLED and a massive 6,000 mAh battery. The back was spotted with three cameras, the main one being 64 MP, but we doubt mobile gamers will care about the camera performance at all.
