It’s that time of the year again. Those anticipating ASUS’ next-generation gaming smartphone may be looking for the ASUS ROG Phone 7 release date.

Well, you’ll be happy to hear that on April 13th ASUS will be hosting an event to officially launch the new ROG Phone 7.

Dubbed “For Those Who Dare”, the event will only be available online and can be accessed on the official ROG Phone webpage.

In the past, ASUS released their next-generation ROG phones in July – So, this is way earlier than expected!

Just like before, we expect the tech hardware company to also launch variations of the ROG 7 later down the line. In previous years, these came out around September / August time.

So, if you are someone who likes to weigh up their options then it might be worth waiting until the summer to make a purchase.

ASUS ROG 7 features (predicted)

As you can imagine, the ROG 7 will be jam-packed with some pretty exceptional features. Here’s what we know so far:

The ROG Phone 7 is getting Android’s most powerful processor the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2. We wouldn’t expect anything less to be honest!

Some leaks suggest the ROG 7 is also getting a whopping 16GB RAM. And when it comes to internal storage expect a 256GB option, with the Ultimate variant potentially getting 512GB.

Fresh new leaks from Digital Chat Station earlier this week have given us an even clearer picture of what to expect from the new smartphone. Here’s what they had to say:

  • 6,000mAh battery
  • 65W charging speed
  • 6.78-inch OLED screen
  • 50MP +13MP + 5MP rear camera system
  • IP54 rating

How much is ASUS ROG 7 in the UK?

According to various sources online, the ASUS ROG Phone 7 is expected to cost around £650. This is all speculation, though. Until ASUS’ official launch event next month, we cannot know for sure.

Final Thoughts

The new ASUS ROG Phone 7 is set to be the best gaming phone of 2023, but it could even become the best smartphone overall! With the official launch set around mid-April, the unveiling is just around the corner.

If you are keen to get the first sneak peek into the new device we definitely recommend signing up to attend the ASUS launch event on their website.
