It may be wrong to call something as small as a phone a juggernaut, but the Republic of Gamers 3 smartphone is exactly that. Asus came out to play with the best available hardware. That doesn’t make it the very best cellphone in the world, but as a gamer, there is very little to compare with it.
The ROG 3 houses the latest 865+ Snapdragon from Qualcomm. The huge 6.59-inch screen is too big for one-handed operation, even for people with large hands. However, the screen packs a full-HD+ AMOLED display with a 144Hz refresh rate. The phone has dual front-facing stereo speakers and a quad microphone setup to reduce unwanted sounds.
Asus has also bought back all the great features from the ROG 2, such as the air triggers, the vapour chamber cooling, RGB logo at the back and that peek-a-boo custom phone cover. They have also included all the gaming considerations for the wiring. The camera is impressive, too. Gaming on this phone is sublime. I felt like it improved my gaming. The display, the processor and high touch sensitivity make it an amazing experience. This cell phone does not have mass appeal and that’s okay because it was designed with a niche in mind.
The Juggernut will be released soon in North America SOON!
Asus launched the ROG Phone 3, its latest gaming flagship Android phone, in July 2020. However, it never materialized on the US or Canadian markets. The device has just appeared on the FCC database, suggesting that it is finally approved for sale in the region.
The ROG Phone 3 arrived as the world’s most powerful Android gaming phone of the time, as with its predecessors, at the end of July 2020. It was pitched at most major regions, including Europe, India and North America, on its launch. However, the phone has yet to appear on Asus’ US site, or with major retailers in the same country.
This is said to be due to delays in getting the phone approved to use 5G in the region in question. However, this may no longer be the case, as it has been certified by the FCC. This filing, completed on September 22, 2020, may put the latest ROG Phone closer to launch in the US.
Furthermore, another leak suggests it has also been cleared by Canadian authorities. Should this function as case, the 2 countries may have access to the Snapdragon 865+ (or 865 in the Strix edition) processor, up to 12GB of RAM and a USB 3.1 Gen 2 port. Then again, there is no official word from Asus on the availability of this high-powered flagship.
