ASUS ROG Phone 3 new update .99 rolled out with Minor fixes. ROG Phone 3 already received an update a few days back and this is just an incremental update. ASUS is constantly pushing update and the new .99 update seems to be fixing few things over the previous things.

The OTA update file size may be less as compared to the Offline Manual update. The manual update file size is around 2.5GB which you can download from here – Update File.
ASUS has also organized Battle of Gods Season 2 for its Community with Call of Duty Mobile.
The Phone has recently also received a price drop of approx. ₹3,000 post the Flipkart Big Billion Days Sale. If you are planning to get a flagship with the most powerful Chip on an Android phone, ASUS ROG Phone 3 can be the answer. You can read my long term review that may help you in decision making. ROG Phones also come with a variety of accessories to choose from.
The closest competitor for ROG Phone 3 is OnePlus 8T and Xiaomi 10T Pro which were recently launched as well. I feel ROG Phone 3 gives a tough fight to these options, however, Snapdragon 875 could be soon revealed. Snapdragon 875 will be faster and Cheaper as compared to Snapdragon 865.
