Asus ROG 8 Series Overview:

The ROG 8 Series comprises three models: ROG 8, ROG 8 Pro, and ROG 8 Pro Edition. These are almost the same phones with differences in memory, storage, and RGB logo only.

The ROG 8 Series continues carrying the vibe of the ROG vibes. There is a glowing logo with Aura RGB lighting on the vanilla ROG 8. In comparison, the Pro and Pro Edition models get an LED dot-matrix display. This time, the gaming trio also goes for a slim profile at 8.9mm as compared to the 10.49mm of the ROG phone 7. Plus, you also get an IP68 rating against dust and water drips.

As for the display, the ROG 8 Series sports a 6.78-inch AMOLED panel with a whopping 165Hz rate. This Full HD+ res panel also bears LTPO tech (1-120Hz), 107.37% DCI-P3 color gamut support, 2500nits of peak brightness, and Corning Gorilla Glass Victus 2 protection.


Asus has gone with the latest and greatest chip from Qualcomm, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 here. This 4nm fabbed 5G SoC boasts a prime Cortex-X4 core clocking at 3.3GHz, five Cortex-A720 cores at 3.2GHz, and two A520 cores running at 2.3GHz frequency. Handling the graphics is Adreno 750 GPU.

Keeping the heat at bay is the conduction cooling system which uses boron nitride and copper. This setup will directly dissipate the heat via the phone’s rear cover. If that’s not enough, there is a new AeroActive Cooler that can be sapped on the back, claimed to drop the heat by up to 26 degrees Celcius. While booting the smartphones is ROG UI based on Android 14.

Some Cool AI

With every brand joining the AI bandwagon, the ROG 8 Series also gets some AI stuff. The AI Grabber feature can grab in-game texts, for instance; a mission objective from Genshin Impact. Not only that, the tool also works for search results conducted in Gallery, Settings app, gallery, and such. Moreover, you can also create custom wallpapers using the  “AI Wallpaper” function.


Gaming phones usually don’t carry nice optics. But the ROG 8 Series stands as an exception. Both the Pro and vanilla models get a 50MP 1/1.56-inch Sony IMX890 sensor with 6-axis gimbal stabilization. Then, there is a 32MP telephoto lens with a 3X optical zoom and OIS, plus a 13MP ultrawide unit. Meanwhile, you get a 32MP front camera with  90° FoV.
