Asus ROG Phone 3 hands-on video gives us our first real-world look at the phone


We already got to see all the specs on TENAA

Asus’s ROG phones have always been jam-packed with the best hardware you can think of, and it looks like this won’t be different for the next smartphone in the series. The ROG Phone 3 has hit the Chinese regulation agency TENAA, and it spilled almost all of the internals. It will run Android 10 out of the box and comes with an overclocked, 5G-enabled Snapdragon 865, and up to 16GB of RAM and 512GB of storage. Other than the regulatory information, we’ve also got a first look at the handset thanks to videos and photos leaked on Weibo, via MySmartPrice.

Compared to its predecessor, the ROG Phone 3 appears to be a little toned down on the outside. As far as you can tell from TENAA’s lackluster photos, the colorful logo and patterns on the back make way for a black and white design, though it looks like there are still some decorations drawn across it to help it retain its “gaming phone” reputation. The camera array grows longer towards the middle of the back, making space for three sensors instead of two.

Other than growing just a tad heavier and bigger, the rest of the handset doesn’t seem to be too different from the ROG Phone 2. Power and volume controls can be found on the right side, and the front still seems to come with some bezels, fitting a 6.59-inch 1080p AMOLED display. A fingerprint reader sits underneath the panel.
