Asus recently launched the Asus ROG Phone 7 series in multiple markets outside China. The ROG Phone 7 and ROG Phone 7 Ultimate are powered by a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC. It appears Asus may offer two more gaming smartphones that are powered by a flagship-grade Dimensity chipset.
Smartphones in the Asus ROG Phone 7 series are currently one of the best options for mobile gaming. However, rumors indicate the Taiwan-based tech company will launch the ROG Phone 7D and ROG Phone 7D Ultimate this year. Perhaps the “D” in the name stands for Dimensity.
When Will ASUS ROG Phone 7D Series Launch?

The ASUS ROG Phone 7D series might launch by August 2023. Just like the Asus ROG Phone 7 series, even the ROG 7D series is tipped to include two smartphones.

The Asus ROG 7D series may launch in China and remain exclusive to the market for a few weeks before launching in other international markets. Asus may launch the ROG 7D series smartphones outside China in the final quarter of 2023.
