What you need to know
- ASUS has confirmed that its flagship ROG Phone 3 will be launched in China next month.
- An exact launch date, however, hasn't been confirmed yet.
- It isn't clear if the phone will also be making its global debut next month.
ASUS and Tencent Games today released a poster on Weibo, confirming that the ROG Phone 3 will debut in China next month. However, the two companies haven't confirmed an exact launch date yet. We expect the launch date for the Chinese market to be revealed by the end of this month or early next month.
Like its predecessor, the ROG Phone 3 is likely to make its global debut a few weeks after its launch in China. The ROG Phone 2 went on sale in China in July last year, but was launched globally only in September.
As shown by a leaked hands-on video last week, the ROG Phone 3 will be fairly similar to its predecessor in the design department. Under the hood, however, the phone is expected to come with a bunch of major upgrades. It will be powered by an overclocked Snapdragon 865 chipset, rumored to be paired with up to 16GB of LPDDR5 RAM. On the back of the phone will be a triple-camera setup with a 64MP main sensor.
It is expected to have an identical 6.59-inch FHD+ display as the ROG Phone 2, but with a higher 144Hz refresh rate. Keeping the lights on will be a massive 6,000mAh cell with 30W wired fast charging. On the software side of things, the ROG Phone 3 will run Android 10 out of the box, with several gaming-specific customizations added on top.

Google confirms Pixel 4a 5G and Pixel 5 are coming, but with few details
Google has confirmed it will have two more Pixels to launch in 2020, and they'll both have 5G. The Pixel 4a 5G and Pixel 5 will come later to complement the standard Pixel 4a, and while we have a decent idea of what they'll be like through leaks, Google isn't spilling details.
Google Pixel 4a review: The best camera under $400 is a perfect 2020 phone
It turns out Google's "less is more" approach really fits well within the constraints of a less-expensive phone, and its strengths in software and camera processing stand out against less-refined competition. The Pixel 4a picks up right where the 3a left off, with better specs, the same great camera, and a $50 lower price.
