ROG Phone 3 in Detail
ROG Phone 3 boasts a 6.59-inch FHD+ 10-bit HDR AMOLED display with 144Hz refresh rate and 1ms response time and is powered by a Snapdragon 865 Plus SoC, with up to 16GB of LPDDR5 RAM and up to 512GB of UFS 3.1 storage.
The device also sports the GameCool 3 system which uses a redesigned 3D vapor cooler, a large graphite film to maximize heat transfer, and an enlarged heat sink.
ROG Phone 3 is equipped with the new AirTrigger 3 system which utilizes a motion sensor, allowing for new gestures that can be performed to control or trigger in-game actions. It still packs a charging port on the side and a cleverly positioned USB-C port at the bottom to keep the cable from interfering with your gameplay.
