ASUS ROG Phone 5 may soon get a successor of sorts as the ROG Phone 5S has appeared online on what looks like a retailer listing, as spotted by noted tipster Mukuk Sharma. Like with most unannounced phones, the ROG Phone 5S is covered so the design is hidden but the website reveals some key specifications. Quite obviously, the ROG Phone 5S will come with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 Plus SoC, instead of the standard SD888. Aside from the chipset, we can speculate the phone might have a familiar design and internal hardware specifications. Considering the ROG Phone 3 launched in July 2020, we can expect the brand might break the covers pretty soon.
