    Asus has finally unveiled when it will be unveiling the third generation of its ROG Phone in India. The Taiwanese tech giant will be taking the wraps off its gaming smartphone on July 22 at 8.15PM IST. There won’t be a physical event due to obvious reasons, but a stream will be showcased on the company’s YouTube channel. The invite image sent to the media does not reveal much about the handset but does claim it as the ‘Ultimate Gaming Weapon’, clearly indicating that it will feature high-end features and specifications. The image also showcases the smartphone in silhouette and a glowing ROG logo at the back, something we have seen in the previous iterations as well.

    Although the firm has not yet mentioned any specifications, it has indeed confirmed that the device will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 865+ processor. The invite came minutes after Qualcomm unveiled its Snapdragon 865+ chipset.
