Asus has been keeping a low profile in the mobile phone segment for some time now. The last we heard from the brand was the launch of ROG Phone 2 (review). The Taiwanese PC to Smartphone manufacturer seems to be only focusing on the mobile gaming segment.
For the first time in months, we heard from Asus Mobile division via a press release announcing its partnership with Unity for its Republic of Gamers branded phones. As per the release, Unity’s Engine will get direct access to ROG specific features via SDKs. This means that Unity Games will have customized ROG phone-centric features and graphics. Interestingly ROG Phone ll and ROG Phone lll were both named on the press release.

A phone with model number ASUS_l003D was spotted on Geekbench benchmarks. It seems that this ASUS_l003D phone is none other than the ROG Phone 3. As per the Geekbench listing, the alleged ROG Phone 3 includes 12GB RAM, octa-core Qualcomm Chipset with a base frequency of 1.80GHz – similar to the Snapdragon 865 chipset.
While Asus India maintains complete silence regarding the upcoming ROG Phone III launch date, reports emerging from Taiwan point towards an early July launch for both ROG Phone 3 and Zenfone 7 (or 7z). Even the ROG Phone 2 went official in July last year. So, it’s about time.
