It’s controlled by the Snapdragon 865 Plus chipset with 5G backing, and it tends to be designed with up to 16GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 512GB of UFS 3.1 ROM stockpiling. Both of those specs push the limits of what we’ve seen so far in a phone. In conclusion, the ROG Phone 3 highlights a major 6,000mAh battery, as did a year ago’s model.
The ROG Phone 3 will in all likelihood be incredible at typical phone stuff, such as perusing the web, messaging, and calls. Be that as it may, where it truly sticks out, beside specs, is with its gaming-explicit structure highlights, which I’m glad to report are still a little odd however exceptionally cool.

It added a swipe motion to each fasten for an optional order and double parcel button imitating on the AirTriggers that basically emulates having physical L1/L2 and R1/R2 catches on the phone (you can see that at the upper right piece of the picture underneath).
