The new #ROGPhone8 is slimmer by up to 15% compared to the old model but still packs a powerful punch. With a focus on top-notch design and durability, these phones are not just for calls – they are symbols of style and strength that blend looks with practicality. The ROG Phone 8 series introduces cool features like customizable Aura RGB Lighting (ROG Phone 8) and Anime Vision Mini-LED display (ROG Phone 8 Pro), letting users show off their own unique style. Whether you're a serious gamer or just love tech, the #ROG Phone 8 series promises to take your mobile gaming to new heights.

Under the hood, the ROG Phone 8 series runs on the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 Mobile Platform, with super-fast 8533 Mbps LPDDR5X RAM and UFS 4.0 storage for top-notch performance. To keep cool during long gaming sessions, it uses a special Rapid-Cooling Conductor design that draws heat away from the processor. The all-new AeroActive Cooler X clip-on accessory is smaller and more efficient, reducing the phone's temperature by as much as 26°C.

Pro-level AI Cameras

Gamers and creators can explore endless photographic possibilities with the #ROGPhone8 series' advanced tri-camera system. The main camera uses the latest 50 MP Sony image sensor for crystal-clear images. Its 24 mm wide-angle lens is perfect for dynamic street snaps, while a 2X zoom mode transforms it into a versatile 50 mm prime lens, ideal for portrait and food photography. 


Photography and videography can reach new heights with the 6-Axis Hybrid Gimbal Stabilizer 3.0, which ensures even smoother videos and shake-free photos on the move. Video stability is assured with hardware anti-shake OIS and an upgraded EIS software algorithm that uses gyroscopic data to detect movement. This dynamic adjustment of the field of view ensures videos remain rock steady.

For the first time, the ROG Phone 8 series includes a 3X telephoto lens that enables the capture of distant objects. Equipped with built-in OIS, the lens delivers crisp and sharp results, even in low-light conditions with Night Photography mode. ASUS HyperClarity technology, using unprocessed (RAW) files, preserves every detail in photos, providing more explicit images even at up to 30X zoom. During video shooting, the telephoto camera employs adaptive EIS to produce stable results with up to a 10X zoom.

The 13 MP ultrawide camera has a free-form lens and cutting-edge algorithms to reduce lens distortion, resulting in stunning yet natural images. The ROG Phone 8 series delivers exceptional quality and clarity in every shot and recording.

Finally, the front 32 MP ultrawide selfie camera's field of view (FoV) has been increased from 73° to 90° to make it perfect for group selfies. The lens has an RGBW sensor that ensures images are clean with less noise, even in low light.

AI-enhanced Features

The ROG Phone 8 series introduces four gaming-friendly AI features that take gaming to the next level. Background Mode allows gamers to easily switch a game to the background, while X Capture lets them capture important moments seamlessly. The intuitive AI Grabber helps with text capture, and X Sense 2.0 offers tips and assistance during gameplay.

With Machine-Learning Recognition technology, AI Grabber can now extract text directly from games. Additionally, AI Pattern Recognition technology expands support for more new top games in X Capture and X Sense 2.0.
