Asus ROG Phone 7 Indian variant with Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC Spotted on Geekbench Ahead of Debut: Report


The Asus ROG Phone 7 series was previously rumored to launch later this year. The series is expected to include the Asus ROG Phone 7, ROG Phone 7D, and the ROG Phone 7 Ultimate model. The Asus ROG Phone 7, which is expected to arrive as a successor to the Asus ROG Phone 6 that debuted last year, has been spotted on several sites, including the popular benchmark site. The listings refer to some of the key specifications of the alleged gaming smartphone.

As per a report by 91Mobiles, the Indian variant of the Asus ROG Phone 7 with model number ASUS_AI2205_C, has been spotted on Geekbench. The upcoming Asus gaming smartphone is likely to be powered by the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset, which offers a maximum clock speed of 3.19GHz, based on the Geekbench listing. The chipset also includes four performance cores clocked at 2.8GHz and three efficiency cores clocked at 2.02GHz.

The Geekbench listing reveals that the Indian variant of the ROG Phone 7 will have 16GB of RAM. The phone is expected to come with 256GB of storage. The phone was also listed to run on Android 13 with the company’s custom ROG UI interface on top.

On the benchmark site, the Indian version of the ROG Phone 7 scored 1,958 and 5,238 points, according to the report, which added that another version of the phone, with model number ASUS_AI2205_B and the same chip, scored 2,022 and 5,719 points in the Geekbench single. The tests are multicore and multicore, respectively.

The device has also been spotted by My Smart Price with model number AI2205_A on the 3C certification site. It has been suggested that the phone will come with 65W fast charging support. Since recent generations of ROG Phones have included a 6,000mAh battery, the ROG Phone 7 series is expected to feature the same battery capacity.

The phone is said to have a 6.8-inch AMOLED display with Full HD+ resolution and a minimum refresh rate of 165Hz. According to a previous report, ASUS will release it in the third quarter of 2023, but the company has not yet made an announcement regarding the launch of the alleged phones.
