Asus is preparing to launch the ROG Phone 5 as the successor to ROG Phone 3. The company has started a countdown for the phone’s promotion date via an event page.
Asus will introduce ROG Phone 5, its latest gaming-focused flagship phone, on March 10. ROG Phone 5 will be the successor to the Asus ROG Phone 3, released in July 2020. Asus apparently skips the number ‘4’ because it has a similar pronunciation to the word “death” in Chinese.
Coming with Snapdragon 888
Asus created an event page with a countdown for the launch. The event page does not provide any further details about the ROG Phone 5, but Geekbench reveals that the smartphone will run Android 11, with two RAM options, 8 GB and 16 GB. In addition, the phone will have a Snapdragon 888 chipset.
The smartphone will come with a 6.78-inch AMOLED display, 5G support, 65W fast charging support, and a 6,000 mAh battery, according to the TENAA database and 3C certification.
In the TENAA database, it appears that the phone will have a triple rear camera setup and a small screen on the back. Overall, the device has a similar design to the ROG Phone 3.
