Original message 15-12-2023, 11:53 –

Asus has confirmed that it will unveil its latest high-end smartphone at the CES trade show early next year. The company will hold a ROG event on January 9 at 12:00 (European time), which will feature the ROG Phone 8 of the same name. More information has already been released in the run-up to the introduction.

For example, a first official image shows that the manufacturer has opted for a relatively traditional design compared to previous generations, although there is a ROG logo with RGB lighting on the back. The cameras are no longer placed on a single line but are combined into a more square island.

In addition to the appearance, Asus also seems to have spent quite a bit of time on the performance of the cameras. The company has set up a blind test where users can vote for the best photos. Anyone who logs in with an Asus account also has a chance to win the device.

According to the most recent rumors, the ROG Phone 8 will be equipped with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 SoC and up to 24 GB of RAM. Furthermore, the phone would support fast charging with a capacity of up to 65 watts. The official specifications should come to light within about five weeks. More details may emerge by then.

Windows Report has shared a mountain of information, including images and almost all specifications of the ROG Phone 8 and the 8 Pro. Asus has reportedly opted for a 6.78-inch AMOLED panel with FHD+ resolution, which in the case of the Pro should be able to reach a refresh rate of 165 Hz. The website mentions the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 for both devices, as well as a battery with “an equivalent of 5,500 mAh”. The regular edition comes with 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage, while the Pro allows users to choose between 16/24GB of RAM and 512GB/1TB of storage.

The camera system of the ROG Phone 8 Pro is said to be the same Sony IMX890 50MP main sensor as that of the OnePlus 11 and Nothing Phone (2). In addition, there is a 13MP ultra-wide-angle lens and a 32MP telephoto lens with 3x optical zoom. It is not stated what kind of cameras the regular variant uses. Furthermore, some accessories are also discussed, such as the well-known active cooling solution.
