In terms of configuration, ROG Phone 3 is equipped with the most powerful Snapdragon 865+ chip. This is the 3rd smartphone equipped with this chip, Lenovo Legion Duel and Galaxy Z Flip 5G, both of which launched right before the ROG Phone 3. The handset is available in multiple variants with 8 / 12 / 16GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 128 / 256 / 512GB of UFS 3.1 storage. The battery comes with a capacity of 6000mAh and supports 30W fast charging. It runs on Android 10 with ZenUI interface running on top to take care of the software side of things.

Regarding cameras, this year's ROG Phone 3 is equipped with a cluster of three cameras on the back including a 64MP Sony IMX686 main sensor, a 13MP sensor with an ultra-wide lens, and a 5MP sensor with a macro lens. There is also a 24MP camera on the front for selfies and video calls.

Like its predecessor, ROG Phone 3 is also equipped with 2 USB-C ports, one at the bottom of the device and one on the side, allowing gamers to charge and play games at the same time in landscape mode. The USB-C port on the side also works with peripheral accessories such as a charging dock, headphones (ASUS has removed the 3.5mm jack on the ROG Phone 3) ...
