The Chinese ROG account shared a short teaser video showing out the ROG Phone 8’s displays which will feature a punch-hole cutout for the first time in the series. The display will also bring slimmer bezels than past ROG Phone models.

Asus also shared more close-up renders of the recently teased ROG Phone 8 which details the new back design and its pentagon-shaped camera cutout. Asus is also hosting a blind camera test for the ROG Phone 8 which implies the company was hard at work in overhauling the camera setup on the upcoming device. We know the ROG Phone 8 will launch with three camera sensors but we don't have any specifics regarding the sensors so far.
