As for the specs, it will be powered by the octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 SoC paired with up to a whopping 16 gigs of RAM. There are three rear cameras on the ROG Phone 3 with the main snapper using a 64MP sensor, while the FHD+ AMOLED display has a 120Hz refresh rate. The whole system will reportedly rely on a 5,800mAh battery with support for 30W fast charging.
