The Asus ROG Phone 8 series is probably about to release. The ROG Phone 8 base model, ROG Phone 8 Pro, and ROG Phone 8 Ultra are anticipated to be included. The ROG Phone 7 lineup, which was unveiled in April of this year, is reportedly being replaced by the rumored series. Both the ROG Phone 7 and ROG Phone 7 Ultimate models were included. The ROG Phone 8 models’ launch date has not yet been disclosed by the company. Prior to this, information about the phones was leaked, and Asus has since verified the devices’ processor specifications. The flagship Ultimate model was spotted on the 3C certification site not too long ago, and it is now on Geekbench as well.
On November 20, an Asus model with the model number “ASUS_AI2401_D” appeared on Geekbench, raising the possibility that it is the ROG Phone 8 Ultimate. The phone’s processor was seen to have a single-core score of 2,235 and a multi-core score of 7,098. The numbers match the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chipset, which the ROG Phone 8 series has already been confirmed to use by the company.
According to the listing, the ROG Phone 8 Ultimate is expected to run Android 14 with ROG UI on top and have up to 24GB of RAM. The phone was previously spotted on the 3C certification site, indicating that 5G connectivity and 65W fast charging might be supported by the flagship ROG Phone 8 model.
Remarkably, an Asus phone previously seen on Geekbench with the model number “ASUS_AI2401_A” listed on September 26. The phone is rumored to have a Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 SoC in addition to 16GB of RAM. This could be either the ROG Phone 8 series’ base model or its Pro version.
The Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoCs and Adreno 740 GPUs power the ROG Phone 7 models, which come in Storm White color options. There is an additional Phantom Black option available for the base model. It’s claimed that the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chipset will boost phone performance by up to 30% compared to previous SoCs.
