The Asus ROG Phone 7 series is slowly getting ready for launch, with the official date set for April 13th. Two weeks before the reveal, the Asus phones have now appeared on the website of the National Communications Commission of Taiwan. Taiwan is Asus’ country of origin, so it stands to reason that new models will be certified there first. Two ROG Phone 7 smartphones came to light, both with a similar design to the ROG Phone 6 series. One with a small display on the back, probably the Pro, and another without.
One of the two battery cells was also certified, with a capacity of 3,000 mAh. This means that the total capacity should be 6,000 mAh with two cells to enable faster charging. The appropriate charger was also brought to light and, with 3.25 amps at 20 volts, delivers a charging capacity of 65 watts. The box comes with a protective cover that matches the design of the back. In addition, the Asus Aero Active Cooler, already known from previous models, has been certified.
The Asus ROG Phone 7 and ROG Phone 7 Pro are said to offer rather minor updates compared to their predecessors. AnTuTu and Geekbench benchmarks have already revealed the new Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset and Android 13 as the operating system. The AMOLED display is likely to be 6.78-inches in size with a fast 165Hz refresh rate.
The new gaming smartphones may also get a new camera setup. What is more decisive, however, is what type of cooling system and what performance improvements Asus is planning for the upcoming ROG phones.
