An excellent camera with multiple lenses (64 MP Wide + 13 MP UltraWide + 5 MP Macro) was received by Asus ROG Phone 5. And now you can definitely stand out with your photos among your friends.

Asus unveils ROG Phone 5 series of gaming smartphones with a price tag from $965 to $1,570

Asus today updated its line of gaming smartphones and released three new models at once: ROG Phone 5, ROG Phone 5 Pro and ROG Phone 5 Ultimate. In fact, this is one model with different characteristics in terms of the amount of RAM, the functionality of the rear panel of the case, and the package kit. Let’s take a closer look at what you get with each model and why the cost of a gaming smartphone can push the $ 1,500 mark.

The base model ROG Phone 5 in this series received a 6.78-inch AMOLED E4 screen with an aspect ratio of 20.4: 9 and a refresh rate of 144 Hz. The screen is covered by a protective Gorilla Glass Victus glass. The screen and dedicated Pixelwork i6 display processor with Always On HDR deliver excellent picture quality in both game mode and normal use. In addition, various additional chips are built into the case, for example, the AirTrigger 5 system. It includes ultrasonic triggers at the end to make it easy to play. There is also a special motion sensor in the body. There is an RGB backlit logo on the back of the case. The base model has two body colors: Phantom Black, Storm White.

ROG Phone 5 runs on the most modern Snapdragon 888 processor, together with one of the available memory options (8/128 GB, 12/256 GB, 16/256 GB). In addition to its gaming capabilities, the smartphone received a good setup of the main camera (three modules 64 MP + 13 MP + 5 MP) and a front camera with one 24 MP module.

The smartphone is powered by two batteries, each 3000 mAh, which have support for 65 W fast charging via USB-C ports. By the way, there are two such ports, as in last year’s models. The manufacturer said that on a single battery charge, you can play Call Of Duty Mobile for 6.5 hours.

The Android 11 software shell has been significantly improved with the ROG UI interface, so that the smartphone user can work comfortably for a long time.

The base model ROG Phone 5 will go on sale in March 2021. The price depends on the option chosen: 8/128 GB — 800 euros, 12/256 GB — 900 euros, 16/256 GB — 1000 euros. The package will include an Aero case and a HyperCharger.

First rumors about Asus ROG Phone 5: 6000mAh battery, Android 11, Snapdragon 888 chipset, scheduled to be announced in March

One important question — what will the name of the next version of Asus’ gaming smartphone be? There are two versions: ROG Phone 4 and ROG Phone 5. Recently there was a photo of the back of this smartphone with the number «5». So it might be a little hint. Moreover, in Chinese culture, the number «4» has a slightly negative connotation.

Therefore, we will assume that Asus will skip one digit in the numbering of generations of its most popular gaming smartphone, and in the spring of 2021 will present the updated ROG Phone 5. From various sources, bit by bit, you can collect the following list of characteristics of this new product with the number ASUS_I005DA: battery with 6,000 mAh and fast charging (65 W), a triple camera on the back with a 64 megapixel main sensor, a Snapdragon 888 processor, 8 GB of RAM (the amount of internal storage is not yet known). Out of the box, the Asus ROG Phone 5 will run Android 11.

The photo shows that the side of the smartphone has a new red button, which was not present in previous generations. There is no exact information yet about what this button is for. Perhaps pressing the red button will activate the game mode or launch your favorite game. There is another version — the button can perform different functions depending on the open application on the smartphone.

A poster about the next generation of Asus gaming smartphone was published on the Chinese social network Weibo. It depicts the constellation Aries. Perhaps this is a hint about the date of the announcement, which may take place during this period (from March 21 to April 19, 2021). We look forward to information on all ROG Phone 5 features, to share it with you on this page.
