ASUS is dissatisfied with the ROG Phone 7 family’s existing composition. An supposed ASUS ROG Phone 7 has been making the rounds on Geekbench over the past week. Its variation’s model number, ASUS AI2205 D, verified that it was a “D” category variant. There appear to be many more possibilities entering the market nowadays. Once more, two new Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 variations have been discovered in the Geekbench benchmark.
The model numbers for the two new ASUS ROG Phone 7 variations are AI2205 B and AI2205 C. The vanilla and Pro versions may be these two variations. The C model, according to some accounts, is the one intended for India, though.
A SNAPDRAGON 8 GEN 2 AND TWO ASUS ROG PHONE 7 SERIES WERE SEEN.
The Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 is included in all three models that passed Geekbench testing. It includes a Cortex-X3 Prime CPU clocked at 3.19 GHz. It appears that the ROG Phone 7 Pro won’t use a newer Qualcomm SoC because the chip is still not available. The closest thing we currently have to a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 2 is only available from Samsung. The Prime core is accelerated to 3.36 GHz. That can be a short-term exclusivity up till Qualcomm releases an SD8+ Gen 2. It appears, though, that ASUS won’t hold out for it.
All three phones feature 16 GB of Memory, regardless of Processor. We also anticipate at least one 18 GB RAM option because gaming cellphones frequently strain their hardware. Also, we anticipate the adoption of UFS 4.0 storage and LPDDR5X Memory. Premium 2023 phones are starting to follow these criteria more and more. This is likely to be included in a gaming smartphone as it must dazzle with cutting-edge hardware.
The ASUS ROG Phone will have a 6.8-inch Full HD+ display with a refresh rate of 165 Hz, according to Gadgetsdata. The phone’s AMOLED screen likely sports a QHD+ resolution. With a 6,000 mAh battery and 65W charging, the battery will be a powerhouse. Although we are seeing phones with 240W charging, this may not seem like the most amazing charge, but we are confident that the battery capacity will pay off. The phone also includes a fingerprint scanner built into the touchscreen.
There is still plenty of time before the ROG Phone 7 series debuts. The speculations point to a July release despite the timing of these releases. Of course, this appears to take into account the introduction of the ROG Phone 6 series. These gaming phones will be available from ASUS a little earlier than normal.
WHAT SNAPDRAGON 8+ GEN 2 CAN THE ROG PHONE 7 PRO BRING?
Being one of the first smartphones to use the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1, the ASUS ROG Phone 6 Pro came just in time. Although we are unsure if this will be the case with the ROG Phone 7 Pro, it does not appear to be the case based on this leak. Qualcomm launched the SD8+ Gen 1 a little “hurriedly” last year. The Samsung-produced Snapdragon 8 Gen 1’s heating difficulties and low energy efficiency did not please the chip manufacturer.
In order to deliver a new chipset with 10% better performance and 30% higher energy efficiency, it hurried to TSMC. As a result, the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chip was created. It is still expected to rank among the most well-liked chipsets among flagship killers in 2023, over a year after its release. With the ROG Phone 6 Pro, ASUS was able to capitalise on the excitement around this chipset. We don’t know if the 7 Pro will experience this.
It’s noteworthy that the Dimensity chipset was included with the ROG Phone 6D Ultimate. The 7D will reportedly continue using Qualcomm. In any case, we can’t rule out a smartphone model with a MediaTek Dimensity flagship SoC in the future. These companies are continually looking to increase their product offers. We anticipate that there will continue to be leaks. It’s important to note that the company is getting ready to release the ZenFone 10 series in the upcoming months.
