It was recently confirmed that Asus would forgo the 4 moniker for the ROG Phone and launch the ROG Phone 5. Now Asus has confirmed the launch date and time for its next-gen gaming phone, the ROG Phone 5. Asus isn't the first company to forgo the ‘4’ in a product name. We have seen the same with OnePlus, which launched the OnePlus 5 after the OnePlus 3T. Asus has confirmed that the ROG Phone 5 will launch on March 10, 4:30 PM India time. There is no information about the device’s price or availability, and we will have to wait for the launch event to get that information.
The Asus ROG Phone 5 is speculated to sport the Snapdragon 888 SoC coupled with 16GB RAM and 512GB Storage. The phone is said to come with a 6.78-inch Full HD+ AMOLED panel and 144Hz high refresh rate. According to a Geekbench listing, the display will be AniMe dot matrix panel that first debuted on the Asus ROG Zephyrus G14. With AniMe dot matrix, users can customise the screen to display any image or text message. For cameras, the Geekbench listing shows the phone will come with a triple-lens setup on the back. The lens set-up is expected to feature a 64MP primary lens.
The phone is expected to sport a dual 3,000mAh battery that totals 6,000mAh of charge with support for 65W fast charging. The phone is expected to run on Android 11 out of the box. We can also expect the company to introduce some gaming accessories along with the launch of the phone. You can check out everything we know about the Asus ROG Phone 5 here.
