ASUS had launched the ROG Phone 2 in China in July last year. Now the Taiwanese smartphone maker has announced its partnership with Tencent on Weibo for the next generation ROG Phone 3. The gaming smartphone is confirmed to launch next month although the exact date has not been announced yet. Just like its predecessor, the upcoming ROG Phone 3 will be deeply customisable by Tencent.
In the announcement, Tencent stated that it will partner with Republic of Gamers in China to bring hardware performance optimisations of its games to create a more immersive gaming experience. Tencent has developed games like PUBG, Call of Duty: Mobile and many other games.
The announcement doesn’t share any technical specifications of the upcoming ROG Phone 3. However, the device was spotted on a TENAA listing a few days ago. We can expect official details about the smartphone in the coming days.

According to the listing, the ROG Phone 3 will sport a 6.59-inch AMOLED display bearing FHD+ resolution.
