Asus ROG Phone 8 to be the first gaming phone in the series to offer water-dust resistance


Asus ROG Phone 8 is going to be the next big thing in the world of mobile gaming. Set to be unveiled in mid-January 2024, this upcoming gaming smartphone from the widely-known ROG phone series promises substantial upgrades across its performance spectrum.

The customary enhancements are set to include a state-of-the-art chipset, display optimizations, augmented battery capacity featuring improved fast-charging capabilities, expedited memory, and enhanced camera hardware—standard evolutionary strides within the tech arena.

However, breaking new ground for the ROG series, the spotlight is now on durability innovations. As per recent revelations on the Chinese microblogging platform Weibo, the Asus ROG Phone 8 is slated to introduce a fresh design, incorporating IP68 water and dust resistance. Additionally, the ROG Phone 8 is rumored to embrace wireless charging technology, adding another layer of convenience to users.

These updates mark a significant milestone for the Asus ROG phone franchise since its inception. I can attest to this personally, as a friend’s ROG Phone suffered water damage, leading to a total loss of Rs. 50,000. Regrettably, the Asus service center did not assist, underscoring the critical absence of IP ratings in that specific ROG phone model.

In addition to its enhanced durability, the upcoming ROG Phone will feature a revamped back panel, boasting a more refined and aesthetically pleasing design. The overall look and feel of the phone will see notable improvements in terms of both appearance and ergonomics compared to its predecessors.

Moving forward, the Asus ROG Phone 8 is set to flaunt a flat display with thinner bezels on all sides, ensuring a heightened and immersive gaming experience. The 6.78-inch full HD+ AMOLED screen, fortified with Corning Gorilla Glass Victus protection, promises both durability and visual clarity. The display will be HDR10-enabled, boasting an impressive 165Hz refresh rate for smoother gameplay.

The Asus ROG Phone 8 Pro variant will offer a substantial storage capacity of up to 1TB, paired with a formidable 16GB RAM, and the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 SoC. The handset is anticipated to house a robust 5,500mAh battery cell supported by QuickCharge 5.0.
