Singapore, 22nd July, 2020 — ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) today announces the new ROG Phone 3 series, the latest generation of the world’s most powerful and exciting gaming smartphone.

The series includes the flagship ROG Phone 3 and the ROG Phone 3 Strix Edition.

A 144 Hz / 1 ms AMOLED 6.59-inch display provides Delta-E colour accuracy of less than one to ensure vivid and accurate imagery, and an industry-leading 25-millisecond touch latency allows a near-instant touch response.

The 10-bit display also supports HDR10+ high-dynamic range content for ultimate visual realism.

The distinctive ROG Phone 3 design retains the core gamer-centric benefits of its predecessors, including the unique side-mounted charging port and a monster 6000 mAh battery.

The intuitive AirTrigger 3 system now includes a motion sensor in addition to the programmable ultrasonic touch sensors, giving gamers even more ways to control the action.

The X Mode performance-optimisation software now supports adjustment of multiple system parameters, making it easier than ever to unlock the full power of the ROG Phone 3.

The lineup also includes the exciting new ROG Phone 3 Strix Edition, which has the same incredible gamer-centric features as the ROG Phone 3.

With up to 16 GB of the latest LPDDR5 RAM and up to an ultrafast 512 GB UFS 3.1 ROM, the ROG Phone 3 delivers the ultimate in overall performance, so gamers can enjoy a super-smooth gaming experience with absolutely no limitations or compromises.

The enhanced X Mode performance-optimisation software now allows customisation of different system parameters to suit any gaming or using scenario.

In conjunction with carefully calibrated defaults for optimum performance, it is easier than ever for serious gamers to unlock the full power of the ROG Phone 3.

The upgraded GameCool 3 cooling system has a redesigned 3D vapor chamber, a large graphite film behind the screen to maximise heat transfer, and an enlarged heat sink that is precisely located to eliminate hotspots.

The new cooling system is one of the most effective thermal solutions available on a mobile device, and can remove and dissipate the heat generated during full-speed operation via specially designed vents in the back cover.

This allows the ROG Phone 3 to easily sustain peak performance during heavy gaming sessions, eliminating throttling to give gamers an expert edge against the competition.

For extra cooling during marathon gaming sessions, the new AeroActive Cooler 3 clip-on external fan accessory has been completely redesigned to deliver increased airflow to the hotspots on the casing to lower an astounding amount of heat for greater and longer performance.

Groundbreaking new ROG HyperFusion technology combined with multi-antenna Wi-Fi and 5G allows simultaneous connections to Wi-Fi and the mobile network, with intelligent redirection to whichever has the best signal.

This allows mobile gamers to enjoy the strongest possible signal at all times for uninterrupted connections.

Built for gamers, by gamers

Fully immersive gaming with total control is the design goal of the ROG Phone 3, which retains the pioneering landscape-oriented ergonomic design of its predecessors.

Upgraded AirTrigger 3 technology provides extra-precise ultrasonic touch controls along the edges of the phone.

The gesture capabilities of the AirTrigger 3 side sensors have been further enhanced, including a newly added swipe gesture and dual-partition button emulation, giving gamers a console-level gaming experience.

There is also a brand-new motion sensor that adds another gesture to the armory, allowing gamers to control the action by shaking the device: it is a whole new way to interact with the device.

AirTrigger 3 gives gamers the very best controls available on a gaming smartphone, and sets the ultimate bar for the competition.

The unique side-mounted USB-C® charging port lets users keep their battery topped up without cramping their style while gaming.

The port also connects accessories such as the AeroActive Cooler 3, which features a pass-through USB-C connector, a 3.5mm audio jack, and a new kickstand on the back to support the ROG Phone 3 on a desk or table for a better viewing and gaming experience.

The ROG Phone 3 also receives a significant upgrade to its audio performance, tuned in collaboration with audio specialist Dirac.

There is now a dedicated Game Mode to further enhance in-game sound effects for immersive gameplay.

The powerful dual front-facing speakers positioned at the top and bottom of the phone are now more capable of delivering richer and detailed sound, giving perfect stereo imaging in landscape mode.

The ROG Phone 3 also supports Qualcomm aptX™ Adaptive for low-latency high-quality audio over Bluetooth® connections.

The ROG Phone 3 introduces ROG Connect, a new online social community — built into the Armoury Crate app — that allows the ROG Phone 3 owners to join and play with friends or squads, or even wow the crowd with their uploaded genius gameplay footage and screenshots.

The ROG Phone 3 gives gamers the very best sharing and community experience.

The unrivaled range of modular accessories for the ROG Phone 3 includes the new modular ROG Kunai 3 Gamepad which adds physical console-like gamepad controls to ROG Phone 3; the new ROG Lighting Armor Case for a stunning appearance; and ROG Clip to attach the phone to selected console controllers for the ultimate mobile gaming experience.

The ROG Phone 3 can also be expanded to provide true 144 Hz dual-screen gameplay with the new TwinView Dock 3, and the Mobile Desktop Dock allows gamers to connect a desktop keyboard and mouse for a desktop-like gaming experience on an external TV or monitor.

The ROG Phone 3 is also proudly partnering with Stadia and Unity to establish a truly integrated gaming ecosystem.

Together, the partnership aims to build a more complete mobile gaming experience for today’s gamers by providing their favorite gaming content on the go.
