Asus Zenfone 7 and ROG Phone III to debut in July

22 May 2020
They show us the 5x and 60x zoom capabilities of the upcoming device

Why would anyone need a gaming phone? I mean most of them are garbage and just pay to win. Others run fine on just about any device. Great specs but nothing to play on it.

It's rather odd that specs & design of Asus ROG3 haven't leaked so far !!

I agree. The Zenfone 6 was a good design. They don't need to do anything revolutionary.

Keep the basics: big battery, big screeen with no notch, audio jack. Incremental upgrades to the chipset and camera is all I expect.

Increase the number of LTE bands. It was the main reason I didn't buy it - i couldn't use it with my carrier.

All the Zenfone needs is (while keeping the same design as the 6):

OIS on the main cam (could be 48MP or 64MP; don't care)
Added Telephoto cam
90Hz Refresh rate at least
8GB RAM LDDPR4X/128 ROM UFS 3.0 with another version that doubles the storage while retaining the microSD slot

MORE LTE BANDS and, for God's sake, don't waste time with A version, B version, and C version. Just 1 for China and 1 for the REST of the world would suffice. We're talking 1/2/3/4/5/7/8/12/13/14/17/20/25/26/28/29/30/34/38/39/40/41/46/66/71 for the Global version with 5G bands of 1/2/3/5/8/41/66/71/77/78 with the 2 mmWave bands so that EVERYONE can use it.

Keep the flip-forward camera, LCD display doesn't bother me, 5,000 mAH battery is plenty of juice, stereo speakers are fantastic and headphone jack is icing on the cake.

As for the ROG 3, all I want is expandable memory to be added. That's literally it. They could keep the same battery, throw in Macros (gamers don't usually care about the camera), same design with the 2 type C ports and headphone jack, front-facing stereo speakers, and just improve the in-display fingerprint reader while adding the above LTE/5G bands.

I can see them just upping the refresh and touch sampling to 144Hz/270Hz respectively, adding 5G of course, IP53/55, 64MP main cam, adding a Macros, and upping the RAM and ROM to LDDPR5 and UFS 3.1 respectively which are all good to me. Can't wait to see what's coming!

So this is it ? Has Asus given up on mid-range segment for good ? Well, then it is what it is...

Finally! I was getting worried we'd never hear about the zf7!

Will they release it in PH? Bec Zenfone 6 didn't arrived in PH stores

MagicMonkeyBoy, 22 May 2020Supposedly the RoG phone 3 will have a 240hz refresh rate. ... moreHonestly, I don't think so. If you were to take the ROG 2, and only update its specs (144Hz, Sd865, UFS3.1 etc.), it would already crush Lenovo Legion, assuming the phones are at the same price point.

So if Asus really plans to outdo themselves again, and do more than just update the ROG 2, they won't have competition at all, at least not within the same price range. Even though the Legion looks awesome!

I really hope it retains or increases the 6000mah battery, that was a big deal.

  • Brandon

I really wish I would've got one of those anniversary Zenfone 6 models.
