Asus ROG Phone 3 TENAA listing updated with full specs and images
According to the listing, the 6.59-inch display of the ROG Phone 3 is an AMOLED unit with Full HD+ resolution and an in-display fingerprint scanner. The image of the smartphone shows that the display will have bezels at the top and the bottom just like the ROG Phone 2. So, there is no notch and no punch-hole to obstruct the content on the display. That is some good news for gamers.
The ROG Phone 3 has a triple-camera setup at the rear with a 64MP main camera. The resolution of the other two cameras has not been listed yet. The listing says that the phone supports 4K video recording. The front-facing camera of the smartphone is a 13MP unit. The TENAA listing also says that the phone has an iris scanning option but we couldn’t spot an iris sensor on the device.
Coming to the processing power, the TENAA listing says that the ROG Phone 3 has a chipset with 8 cores and a 3.01GHz clock frequency. Now, everyone has been expecting the ROG Phone 3 to have Qualcomm’s current flagship chipset, the Snapdragon 865. However, that doesn’t seem to be the case as the Snapdragon 865 has 2.84GHz clock frequency. So, whichever processor the ROG Phone 3 is using, it is not Snapdragon 865 but an even more powerful SoC. Could it be the Snapdragon 865+? Well, it is possible since ROG Phone 2 surprised everyone by being the first phone to offer the plus version of the Snapdragon 855.
Another interesting aspect of the ROG Phone 3 that the TENAA listing reveals is that this gaming-centric smartphone will come with up to 16GB of RAM, leaving all other smartphones in the dust. There will also be 8GB and 12GB RAM options, according to TENAA. The device will be available in three storage options, 128GB, 256GB, and 512GB. On the software side of things, the ROG Phone 3 has Android 10 OS. Last but not the least, the images of the ROG Phone 3 show that it will have a design similar to that of the ROG Phone 2 with right-mounted power and volume buttons and a glossy back panel with an ROG logo.
Asus ROG Phone 3 visits AnTuTu
The Asus ROG Phone 3 has made a visit to AnTuTu as well. According to its listing on AnTuTu, the phone has the Snapdragon 865 SoC albeit with a max frequency of 3.09GHz (it could be Snapdragon 865+ as I said earlier). It shows that the phone comes with 16GB LPDDR5 RAM, 512GB UFS 3.0 storage, and Android 10 OS. The powerful hardware has helped the ROG Phone 3 to score 64,6310 points in the AnTuTu benchmarking test, taking the crown for the most powerful smartphone to the date.
