The rumour mill also suggests that this could be paired with 16GB of RAM and 512GB of storage – after all, it is a gaming smartphone. While almost no one will need this copious amount of storage, Asus will likely offer other options at lower prices.

As far as performance is concerned, Asus is said to be using the latest generation of memory and storage, which bodes well for gamers.

Gaming smartphones stand to benefit the most from high-refresh rate displays, and even though there aren’t too many games that take advantage of this right now, it makes the phones future proof.

Rumours suggest that the ROG Phone 3 will have a 6.59-inch Full HD+ AMOLED display with 120Hz refresh rate. While this brings it in the league of high-end smartphones like the Galaxy S20+, the screen resolution could be a little on the lower side for a premium smartphone.

Asus ROG Phone 3 cameras – three on the back

Like many other smartphones launching these days, the ROG Phone 3 is also said to feature a triple camera setup on the back. There could be a 64MP primary camera alongside a 13MP secondary one, and an unspecified telephoto sensor.
