It seems like Asus will be taking care of the major elements of the smartphone, even though Qualcomm already makes reference designs to test the latest chipsets.

With Asus being involved, it is possible that the Qualcomm gaming smartphone will have the Republic of Gamers branding as well. It will most likely have a high refresh rate display, the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon SoC, a large battery, and presumably shoulder buttons.

Qualcomm has sent out press invites for an event on December 1 where it will reveal the “latest and greatest Snapdragon news”. It is expected to announce the Snapdragon 875 SoC through a virtual event and now, with the latest report on the gaming smartphone, the company may share details on it as well.
