One of the handsets we are looking forward to seeing is ASUS’ successor to its second-generation gaming phone.

(Updated, June 4: Benchmarked? Read ASUS ROG Phone 3, Lenovo Legion Gaming Phone now on Geekbench.)

The existence of the ASUS ROG Phone 3 was already confirmed by chip-maker Qualcomm in February, when it posted on Chinese social media platform Weibo a list of upcoming Snapdragon 865 devices — one that also outed the Lenovo Legion Gaming Phone.

Things get more exciting now that the said unit is believed to have been spotted on the site of benchmarking tool Geekbench.

Geekbench benchmark scores of what is believed to be the ASUS ROG Phone 3

A device with model number ASUS I003DD notched high scores of 902 and 3,074 in the single- and multi-core tests, respectively, of Geekbench’s 5.1.1 version. They’re in line with results of smartphones powered by a Snapdragon 865 chip.

Understand that the ROG Phone 2 with Snapdragon 855 Plus was code-named I001D, hence the belief that the discovered listing on Geekbench is that of the ASUS ROG Phone 3. The database shows that the version tested has 8GB of RAM and Android 10. Not surprising.

ASUS ROG Phone 3 likely Wi-Fi Alliance certification spotted via Revu Philippines

ASUS ROG Phone 3 certified by the Wi-Fi Alliance?

Besides that, the said model number has cropped up on the site of certification body Wi-Fi Alliance. Revealed are the following details: Qualcomm’s QCA6390 chipset, 2 x 2 dual-band Wi-Fi a/b/g/n/ac/ax, Wi-Fi Direct, and Miracast support.

Considering that the current ROG handset was launched globally July 23, 2019, it’s indeed highly likely that the unit seen listed on Geekbench and Wi-Fi Alliance is the ASUS ROG Phone 3. Fans based in the Philippines, like us, will probably have to wait for it in October still — if we follow the same timeline as last year’s.
