The most sophisticated camera system ever included in a ROG series phone is another highlight of the ROG Phone 8 series. The latest cellphones are more appealing to drivers on a daily basis rather than being intense gamers. Here’s a peek at what the ROG Phone 8 and ROG Phone 8 Pro owners may expect.

Furthermore, Asus provides a few AI-powered capabilities, like improved outcomes via the Gallery, Settings, and phone launcher apps. Another feature under development is called “AI Wallpaper,” which would use stable diffusion to create customised wallpapers.
