Last month, a leaked image on Weibo revealed a successor of Asus ROG Phone 3, which we speculated to be the ROG Phone 5. Now, Asus has confirmed that it’ll indeed be the ROG Phone 5 and will launch on March 10. The company, as expected, has skipped the number “4” moniker because its pronunciation in Chinese resembles the word “death”. To remind you, the ROG Phone 3 was launched by the company back in July 2020.
The upcoming ROG Phone 5 has appeared on the company’s official website through a dedicated landing page. However, the phone maker didn’t share any information on the specifications. But since the phone will be a flagship, we speculate that it’ll feature the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 SoC. Further, a recent bleak by a known tipster had revealed that the handset will launch in India sometime in March. Notably, this leak falls in line with the official launch date of March 10.
Asus ROG Phone 5 Global Launch Details
As per the company’s dedicated landing page for the ROG Phone 5 launch, the event will take place on March 10 at 7 PM (local time) in Taipei. The page has a timer running for the launch date, which as per the India Standard Time (IST) is 4:30 pm IST on March 10. As said before, there’s no information available on the phone specs, but there’s the presence of an RGB ROG logo on the phone.
Asus ROG Phone 5 Specs, Features (Expected)
The phone has appeared on multiple certification sites in the recent past, and we have some details about the device already. As per the reports, the Asus ROG Phone 5 will feature a 6.78-inch display and run Android 10 out-of-the-box. The phone will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 SoC, paired with up to 16GB of RAM. Further, it’ll reportedly pack a 6,000mAh battery with 65W fast charging support.
For optics, there may be a triple rear camera setup as suggested by a few images leaked via a TENAA listing. It’ll reportedly house a 64MP primary sensor. Another thing is that the phone may have a dot matrix panel on the back with a lit-up ROG logo. ROG phones are powerful and high-performance handsets suitable for gaming. The upcoming ROG device will launch on March 10, and we expect a few more leaks before the launch.
