ASUS hints at a future gaming smartphone
It is likely that ASUS' future gaming smartphone will ship under their iconic Republic of Gamers brand, or perhaps as a Zenfone ROG/Strix device, taking on the likes of Razer who entered the "Gaming Smartphone" market in late 2017.
Sadly ASUS didn't detail their smartphone plans in much detail, with no release in sight. It is also unclear what ASUS plans to deliver with a gaming-oriented smartphone, with Razer providing users with a 120Hz 1440p display while competitors like the Xiaomi Black Shark offers users a plug-and-play gamepad, a massive 4,000mAh battery and an 18:9 1080x2160 display.

At this time it is unknown when ASUS plans to release a Gaming-oriented smartphone, though you can rest assured that the device won't be cheap, with Razer's current Gaming Phone shipping for over £500.
Last year images of a smartphone called the ASUS Z3 Venom leaked onto the internet, though so far no phone under that name has ever materialised.
