The ASUS ROG Phone 2 has made good noise among the gaming community and now, with passing Wi-Fi Alliance’s certification and appearing on GeekBench, the first evidence of the arrival of the ASUS ROG Phone 3 emerged.

Interestingly, the last year’s ROG Phone 2 came with I001D codename, which is very similar to this years. Going by Geekbench listing, the alleged ASUS ROG Phone 3 scored 902 points in the single-core tests and 3,074 points in the multi-core test. No surprise!

The tested variant (on Geekbench) has 8GB of RAM, but we are expecting the company to bring in a 12GB RAM variant, as it is becoming a standard for the gaming smartphones. Also, the RAM should be based on the LPDDR5 standard, though it is not confirmed yet.
