Keeping it all in perspective, phone manufacturers are also catching up with it by developing phones that deliver the ultimate gaming performance. This would open new revenue streams for the manufacturers by leveraging the mobile gaming trend.
Among the mobile phone brands, one brand which is coming out strong in the gaming phones category is ASUS.

There is a stripped-down model too, with lesser storage and RAM, called the Rog Phone III Strix Edition. In our blog, we will only be focusing on the spec-sheet of the standard variants.
The phone comes packed with an astounding OLED display, which pushes a 144 Hz refresh rate, a major leap from the previously offered 120 Hz in Rog Phone II.
A triple camera set up is housed on the back of the phone with a main, ultra-wide and telephoto lens. The front camera is smartly placed in the minimal bezel on the front.
Powering the robust handheld is the Snapdragon 865 + mobile platform. The CPU is clocked at 3.1 Ghz, and hooked up to a 16 GB LPDDR5 RAM to ensure lag-free and true-to-life gaming experience. Asus offers X-mode, which aids in optimizing the phone’s performance to play power-hungry titles.
