It will be compatible with Google Stadia, and also has a USB-C port on the side, so the charging cable does not bother you when playing in landscape mode. What finally stands out in the Asus ROG Phone 3 is the ultrasonic AirTrigger triggers. These are touch-sensitive surfaces on the edges of the phone that mimic the experience of using a normal controller. They are adaptable to user requirements, while the addition of a dual surface separation function gives the controller L1/L2 and R1/R2 buttons. In addition, the user can activate a game command when you shake the phone, for example, the player can reload his weapon.
Classically, Asus also offers additional accessories, such as the TwinView Dock 3 that adds another screen to the device and an electronic platform that lets you connect a keyboard and mouse. Later in the year will come the ROG Strix XG16, a 15.6-inch mobile screen with 144Hz, ROG Cetra RGB which are headphones with ANC and ROG Falchion a wireless mechanical keyboard with touch panel and 400 hours of lifespan.
