You can watch the ASUS ROG Phone 5 launch event online on YouTube via ASUS India’s official channel linked below. We can expect ASUS to surprise us with some newer accessories for the phone, along with a few special editions of the smartphone. More details about the ASUS ROG Phone 5 will be available on the official website soon.
ASUS ROG Phone 5 specifications
Earlier Geekbench listings have told us that the ASUS ROG Phone 5 would run a Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 chipset coupled with up to a whopping 18GB of RAM. We can also expect one variant to feature 512GB of internal storage. Some renders of the device showed us that it would come with a dot-matrix screen at the back, which can be configured via software. It is also tipped to run a colossal 6,000mAh dual-cell battery that supports fast charging at 65W.
We can also expect the ASUS ROG Phone 5 to carry forward its predecessor’s dual-USB Type-C port approach. Every subsequent iteration of the device pushes the display’s refresh rate higher; therefore, we can expect the ASUS ROG Phone 5 to feature a 165Hz AMOLED screen. The phone is tipped to feature three rear cameras with a 64MP sensor at the helm. There’s a dedicated ‘gaming mode’ button, too.
