Asus, the company that is usually known for its robust gaming products around the world, has also garnered enough headlines for its ROG gaming phones series. We have already seen two iterations of the product, both of which are powerful and are available at an affordable price in India. However, the third version might launch soon this year. The company’s Asus ROG Phone 3 has just hit Geekbench benchmarking website and Wi-Fi alliance certification as ‘ASUS_I003DD’

As per the Geekbench result (via Mysmartprice), the alleged Asus ROG 3 was running Android 10 and was powered by an octa-core Qualcomm processor with 1.80Ghz as base frequency. Based on the specifications of the ROG Phone and the ROG 2 handsets, it might not be surprising to see the third iteration powered by the Snapdragon 865, Qualcomm’s flagship mobile processor for this year. In addition, the Geekbench result also suggested the inclusion of 8GB RAM, which is something that is expected.

On the other hand, the smartphone also showed up in WiFi alliance certification with the same model number - I003DD. It is worth adding that the original ROG Phone came with a similar codename - I001D.

While this might create some hype around the ROG Phone 3, Lenovo too is working on a gaming phone that might be an answer to ROG Phone 3. The Lenovo Legion smartphone was leaked a few days ago, revealing the designs and nearly all the specifications.

From the looks of it, the Legion gaming smartphone seems to have two USB Type-C charging ports, one at the bottom and the other on the side. What's unusual is the dual rear cameras that are placed towards the centre of the handset. Near the middle-left position (where you usually have the phone’s power button) one can see the 'Legion' branding on a compartment that is said to pop-up. That compartment is said to feature the front facing cameras. This is something we have seen for the first time.
