The Asus ROG Phone 3 was launched in India in July this year as a successor to the ROG Phone 2. The phone comes with a 6.59-inch full HD+ display along with HDR10+ support and a 144Hz refresh rate. Designed for hardcore gaming, the ROG Phone 3 houses Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 865+ SoC, integrated with Adreno 650 graphics. The phone also houses Asus’ propriety “Air Triggers” to emulate the functionality of a game controller.
Apart from that, the Asus ROG Phone 3 also supports 5G, dual-band Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.1, and a triple rear camera setup. The rear camera includes a 64-megapixel Sony IMX686 primary shooter, a 13-megapixel ultra-wide camera, and a 5-megapixel macro camera. The front panel has a single 24-megapixel shooter. The ROG Phone 3 packs a 6,000mAh battery and supports Qualcomm QC 4.0 fast charging. The phone, despite its flagship traits, misses out on wireless charging.
