US/Canada – Want an ROG Phone 3 instead? It’s available now.

There has been much debate about ASUS’ intent on bringing the ZenFone 7 to more markets. The original statement from ASUS suggested 5G compatibility issues were the reason why some markets like North America would not get a ZenFone 7 release. We can’t say whether the arrival of the 5G enabled ROG Phone 3 will influence a ZenFone 7 release, but we can say if you want the ROG Phone 3 instead, you can order it now.

Don’t be shocked at the price here. You’re looking at the best of the best and some features that no other manufacturers are offering.

What does this North American ROG Phone 3 release mean for a possible ZenFone 7 release?

This is a very curious situation for us. Nothing official yet from ASUS that clearly states the ZenFone 7 is coming to the US and Canada. Yes, there have been reports of ASUS support telling customers that the ZenFone 7 is coming to North America but there is an element of uncertainty on those reports.

ASUS stated the 5G compatibility was the primary reason for not bringing the ZenFone 7 to the US and Canada. Well, it certainly appears that the ROG Phone 3 and its 5G capability show that the ZenFone 7 has no issues in coming as well. It’s a common sense argument but that only applies if compatibility was the ONLY reason ASUS decided not to release it in North America.

Not to be a downer, but it all comes down to the FCC filings. If you consider it would be 4-6 weeks minimum from a published FCC filing, we are getting awfully late into the year now. It wouldn’t be shocking if ASUS was to make the ZenFone 7 available in the US and Canada by late November, so we hope to see a filing in the next couple of weeks. It would be extremely strange to see the ZenFone 7 being brought to North America in December or early 2022.
