Asus is going to launch its next Republic of Gamers phone in July, and the phone was recently mentioned by the company in a press release. Later, a device rumored to be the ROG Phone III was seen on Geekbench, but today we have a clear confirmation this phone is indeed happening – it has been certified with the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC).
We are confident this is indeed the next ROG Phone since it has the model number ZS661KS – pretty similar to the ZS600KL of the first ROG Phone and ZS660KL of the second iteration. We do not have a lot of specs for now – only the benchmark-leaked Snapdragon 865, combined with 8 GB RAM, and Android 10 – none of them are a surprise.
What we do expect to see is a higher refresh rate than the ROG Phone II, probably 144Hz, faster charging than the previous 30W rates, and a QHD+ screen. The previous version had issues with its fingerprint sensor, so hopefully, Asus will fix those in the upcoming version.
