CES 2024 is just around the corner, and ASUS has dropped a teaser for its next ROG Phone: the ROG Phone 8. Ditching the sleek curves of its predecessor, this beast embraces a bold new boxy design, leaked in an official image, and it might just pack a game-changing telephoto lens.
ASUS is hosting a dedicated ROG event on January 8th, 2024, just a day before CES officially kicks off. Expect to see multiple laptops alongside the highly anticipated ROG Phone 8 series. In fact, the Chinese launch is already confirmed for January 16th!
The official image, cleverly revealed through a blind camera test on ASUS’s website, gives us a clear look at the ROG Phone 8’s back panel. Gone are the smooth lines; this phone rocks a boxy frame with a striking dual-tone design (think Grey and Black with contrasting shades). The camera module is where things get interesting. It’s a squarish protrusion cutting off from the right edge, housing a massive main sensor, two smaller lenses, and an LED flash. And get this: the ROG logo on the bottom glows with RGB flair!
One thing’s for sure: the ROG Phone 8 won’t be lacking in muscle. ASUS has already confirmed it’ll be powered by the mighty Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 processor, promising buttery-smooth performance for even the most demanding games.
With its boxy design, potential telephoto lens, and confirmed flagship processor, the ROG Phone 8 is shaping up to be a serious contender in the mobile gaming arena.
What do you think of the ROG Phone 8’s leaked design and rumored telephoto lens? Is it the peak of gaming phones?
