ASUS ROG Phone III (Image only for representation purpose)

Back in February, Qualcomm revealed a list of upcoming phones that will be powered by the top-of-the-line Snapdragon 865 chip. In that list were two yet-to-be-announced phones from ASUS, the gaming-centric ROG Phone III and the ZenFone 7. It now appears that the aforementioned duo will go official soon.

As per a report from Taiwan-based Commercial Times, ASUS will launch the ZenFone 7 and the ROG Phone III around the end of 2020’s second quarter, or early in the third quarter. Going by the launch time frame of its predecessor, July or August would be a couple of months late, but it is good to see that ASUS has not shelved the device and is still moving ahead with its launch.

In fact, the company is targeting a 30% to 50% increase in sales for the ROG Phone III compared to its predecessor, the ROG Phone II. It remains to be seen if third time’s the charm for ASUS when it comes to actually getting its beastly gaming phone in the hands of more users.

I’ve been writing about consumer technology for over three years now, having worked with names such as NDTV and Beebom in the past. Aside from covering the latest news, I’ve reviewed my fair share of devices ranging from smartphones and laptops to smart home devices. I also have interviewed tech execs and appeared as a host in YouTube videos talking about the latest and greatest gadgets out there.
