ASUS ROG Phone 3 has bagged Bluetooth SIG certification ahead of July launch with model numbers I003D and I003DD. While the differences between both the models is a mystery, for now, we can speculate they could differ with regards to RAM and storage or the difference could be region-based. The listing reveals the ASUS ROG Phone 3 could have Bluetooth 5.1 as well as Bluetooth V5.2 connectivity. Interestingly, Snapdragon 865 SoC supports only up to Bluetooth 5.1, meaning the ROG Phone 3 that has Bluetooth v5.2 may feature a newer SoC, presumably the Snapdragon 865+ SoC, but that can’t be confirmed at the moment.
