The ROG Phone III is likely to feature a fancy design and newer, more improved cooling mechanisms, a trend we also saw on past phones. With the launch of the Asus ROG Phone II last year, the brand also launched a bunch of accessories including a kunai controller and a turbo-cooling case. Asus also mentioned that the accessories which may be seen as expensive investments, will also be compatible with future ROG devices. Hence these cases, controllers and even the twin-screen accessory should work well on the upcoming phone.
