Kernel Source Code AND bootloader unlock app For Asus ROG Phone 3 Now Up For Grab

The newly released Asus ROG Phone 3 is the latest in the series of Android phones. While the phone is yet to be up for sale, the device is expected to be available for purchase, starting next month. Talking about its specs, it comes with Snapdragon 865+ SoC, a massive 6000 mAh battery, 144 Hz / 1 ms AMOLED display, up to 16GB of LPDDR5 RAM, and 512GB of UFS 3.1 storage. With all of these features, the phone will definitely be one of the best performing Android phones. The phone also comes with Android 10 out-of-the-box, along with its user interface.
