The ROG Phone 3 is said to run on Android 10 topped with the company's own ROG UI. As the name signifies, the ROG Phone 3 will be the third gaming smartphone from Asus and is likely to feature high-end flagship hardware.

Other notable features include the Legion Assistant that enables virtual joystick functionality, an Audio to Vibration (A2V) feature, dual front-facing stereo speakers, dual liquid-cooling along with copper tubes, 5G, 4G LTE, Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth v5.0, GPS/ A-GPS, NFC, and two USB Type-C ports similar to the ROG Phone. This year, Asus will be updating anew accessories for the ROG Phone 3. On the rear, it packs a dual-camera setup.
