Asus takes a lot of pride in delivering the ROG Phone series. A beast machine that is solely designed for gaming enthusiasts.

With each iteration, Asus presents hardware that is unique and optimal. But the software department is something where Asus has consistently underperformed.

Asus ROG Phone 3 was the flagship offering by the company until Asus ROG Phone 5 launched. But the company trailed way behind other OEMs when it came to delivering Android 11 update to the Asus ROG Phone 3.

There lies a lot of questions but Asus is overly quiet. Here are some of the latest developments from the Asus camp.

We recently saw how Asus has cast down its ROG Phone 3 users by over-delaying the Android 11 update program. But a forum moderator has given out some hope as he shares the news of the present status.

The moderator says the Android 11 update for the Asus ROG Phone 3 is under evaluation and a timeline will soon be shared.
