Powered with up to the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 865+, together with up to 16GB of RAM, and up to 512GB of UFS 3.1 storage, the ROG Phone 3 is no doubt the most powerful smartphone available in the market today.

With the stunning 144 Hz rate AMOLED display with 1ms response time, the ROG Phone 3 sets the standard for the best smartphone display for all the mobile gamers, especially with its industry-leading 270 Hz touch-sampling rate that dramatically decreases touch latency for fast-paced games. Also added is the GameFX Audio system from Dirac, providing a more immersive gaming experience.

The ROG Phone 3 still comes with its monster 6000 mAH battery with fast-charging capability, plus 5G capable connectivity and WiFi 6 compatibility. Mobile gamers can enjoy lag-free gaming whether at home or on the go.

The new and improved AirTrigger 3 also brings new features with dual partition buttons and enhanced touch-sensor approaches that now even gives more options for actions in different motions.

The ROG Phone 3 also comes with a flagship-level Sony IMX686 64MP high-resolution camera, 13MP ultra-wide camera, and a 1.6 macro lens along with a 24MP front high-resolution camera.

Also announced are the brand-new set of ROG Phone 3 accessories. First off is the new Lighting Armor Case that supports Aura lighting to flex that gaming aesthetic and add protection to your device. The Kunai Gamepad 3 now has more buttons and has improved its portability with a detachable grip. The TwinView Dock 3 has also been upgraded, now in an even better 144 Hz display. The new ROG Clip now lets you use your favorite gaming console controller and connect it to your ROG Phone 3.

Fans will also love to hear that the ROG Phone 3 is compatible with most of the previous generation’s accessories. Nevertheless, each phone also comes with its revamped version of the AeroActive Cooler 3, now with much better cooling performance and an included kickstand, as well as a new design of the Aero Case included in the box.
