ASUS ROG Phone 8 Ultimate shows up on Geekbench
It was spotted with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chip and 24GB RAM.
Another Geekbench leak had surfaced in mid-September, revealing an ASUS smartphone with the model number AI2401_A, running Android 14 with a Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 and 16 GB of RAM.
The smartphone was believed to be the ROG Phone 8 due to the RAM config, and the ASUS leak almost a month ago with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 logo reaffirmed our speculation.
However, it seems another model of the ASUS ROG Phone 8 has popped up with the model number AI2401_D and has different specs, likely to be the ROG Phone 8 Ultimate.
ROG Phone 8 Ultimate likely to get 8GB more RAM upgrade
According to the latest leak, the ASUS device with the model number AI2401_D has 24GB of RAM, making us speculate that it is a premium alternative to the regular ROG Phone 8.
And if we look at the previous ROG Phones from the company, this apparent premium alternative could be the ROG Phone 8 Ultimate.
If our speculation is indeed accurate, then the ROG Phone 8 Ultimate is getting an 8GB RAM bump over its predecessor, the ROG Phone 7 Ultimate.
In terms of the specs, not much is known about ASUS’s upcoming ROG Phone 8 series, except for the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 SoC and 16GB RAM on the base model and 24GB RAM on the “Ultimate” model.
That said, an appearance at the Geekbench indicates a launch or announcement is near. So, we will get new spicy details about ASUS’s upcoming gaming phone sooner rather than later.
