ASUS ROG Phone 8 Series to Debut Soon

The global account of ROG initially shared the teaser of the upcoming smartphones. Later, the ASUS India handle on X (formerly Twitter) also posted the teaser confirming the India launch of the devices. The teasers shared by the brand reveal the camera island in a pentagon shape, similar to their predecessors. ASUS will equip the smartphone with triple rear cameras and an LED flash.

The ROG branding can be seen on the camera module apart from the Republic of Gamers branding in the center of the smartphone. ASUS also includes the “Established 2006” branding on the device to showcase its legacy in the industry. A USB Type-C port can be seen on the device’s right side, similar to its predecessors.

The teaser was shared with the caption “Beyond Gaming,” hinting at the capabilities apart from gaming and performance. The existing ROG gaming smartphones are known for their performance, so we can assume that the brand is aiming to pitch them as all-rounders.

ASUS has yet to reveal the exact launch timeline or date of the upcoming ROG gaming smartphones, but we can expect them to make a debut at the CES 2024 event, which is scheduled for January 9.
