The report also says that there could be more variants of the ROG Phone which will be introduced closer to the official launch. Apart from that, the phone is also touted to run on the latest version of Android 11 out-of-the-box.
The ROG Phone 4 has big shoes to fill. If you talk about its predecessor, the ROG Phone 3, debuted in India back in July 2020 and lived up to much of the expectations that smartphones gamers had from the device.
The ROG Phone 3 comes with a 6.9-inch FHD+ AMOLED display with a 144Hz refresh rate and HDR 10 support. The front of the device is protected by Gorilla Glass 6. Under the hood, it runs on the Snapdragon 865+ chipset, Andreno 650 for graphics processing and up to 12GB of RAM.
On the rear, the ROG Phone 3 houses a triple camera setup with a 64MP primary Sony IMX686 sensor, a 13MP 125-degree wide-angle sensor, and a 5MP macro sensor. You also get a 24MP selfie camera on the front.
Powering this entire package is a whopping 6,000mAh battery pack that supports 30W fast charging. Clearly, ASUS will have to push itself to bring to the customers a worthy upgrade. One that’s not only more powerful but also power-efficient.
