ASUS ROG Phone 8 official teaser

The official teaser for the ROG Phone 8 shows a faint image of the phone’s back design. But we do notice a redesigned camera module on the new ROG phone. The new camera module is square-shaped with the bottom right edge slightly cut off.

In comparison to the ROG Phone 7 series, the previous models have a horizontally-aligned camera module that runs through the top of the phone. It also looks like the ROG Phone 8 has a triple camera setup at the back. Other than that we can see a dual-colour design with a mix of light and dark grey shades.
