The ROG Phone 3 has a 6.59-inch HDR OLED display with FHD+ resolution and an impressive 144Hz refresh rate. Around the back of the phone is a triple-camera setup featuring a 64MP main sensor, a 13MP ultra-wide lens, and a 5MP macro shooter. The phone also includes dual front-facing speakers, a 24MP selfie camera, 512 GB UFS 3.1 storage, AirTrigger 3 ultrasonic shoulder buttons, support for sub-6GHz 5G networks, and a massive 6000mAh battery with 30W fast charging.
The ROG Phone 3 comes in two variants in the U.S. While the 12GB/512GB version is available for $1,000, you will have to spend $100 more if you want the 16GB version of the phone. In addition to the ASUS website, the phone is available to purchase through Amazon and B&H as well.
Along with the phone, ASUS is also offering a bunch of gaming accessories for the phone, including a $150 Kunai 3 gamepad controller, $330 TwinView Dock 3 that adds a second screen for gaming, and the clip-on AeroActive 3 Cooler 3.
