Asus ROG Phone III gets certified by EEC, model number revealed

Yordan, 11 June 2020

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.
