Mobile gamers, rejoice! Last August 15, the ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) finally announced the arrival of the ROG Phone 3! The king of gaming smartphones will be available this August 22, 2020. There are many reasons why the ROG Phone 3 is crowned as one of the best gaming smartphones in the world.
If you think that mobile gaming will always lag behind PC gaming, think again—these specs pack a powerful punch. As someone who’s experienced tons of frustrations with mobile gaming—namely, heavy data downloads, non-responsive touches, and heating problems—this phone seems to solve all that and then some. It’s a lot faster than your average computer (and it’s 4 times more than the 4 GB of RAM powering my laptop).
If you’re excited about the ROG Phone 3, then you’re in for a treat with the all-new set of ROG Phone 3 accessories. There’s the Lighting Armor Case that supports Aura lighting. The Kunai Gamepad 3 now has more buttons and has improved its portability with a detachable grip. Next, the TwinView Dock 3 has also been upgraded, now in an even better 144 Hz display. Lastly, the new ROG Clip now lets you use your favorite gaming console controller and connect it to your ROG Phone 3. (Neat!)
No need to fret if you’ve purchased the accessories from the previous generations: ROG Phone 3 is compatible with most of the past accessories. (Check out this chart!)
While the accessories mentioned above are separate purchases, each phone comes with the updated Aero Case and the newly designed AeroActive Cooler 3. It has better cooling performance (including a kickstand), and Type C to 3.5mm Audio Jack dongle all included in the box.
The ROG Phone 3 will come in three variants: the Classic Edition comes in 2– the highest-end model, sporting the powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 865+, with 16GB of RAM, and 512GB of UFS 3.1 storage, will be available for PHP 54,995. The 12GB RAM version, also with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865+ and 512GB of UFS 3.1 storage, comes in for PHP 49,995.
Lastly, the ROG Phone 3 Strix Edition, which comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 865, 8GB of RAM, and 256GB of UFS 3.1 storage is available for only PHP 39,995.
