In the recent live stream provided by ASUS, three phones of the ROG Phone 5 and their features and specs revealed.
All three ROG Phone 5 phones are equipped with a 6.8in. Samsung AMOLED Display with 300 Hz touch-sampling rate, 24.3 ms touch latency and Delta E<1 colour accuracy. The display is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass Victus
All three phones have pretty much similar specs, with the exception of additional RAM and/or storage. Also, the ROG Phone 5 Ultimate only comes with white, while the other two, the Regular ROG Phone 5 and 5 Pro, come with black colour only. Another exception is that only the Ultimate and Pro versions have the ROG Vision secondary display at the back.
There is a triple camera setup at the back. The main wide-angle camera comes with a 64mp Sony IMX686 CMOS sensor, and the other two are a 13mp Ultrawide sensor and 5mp macro cameras. For selfies, you have a single 24MP wide-angle camera
This is pretty much expected. All three come with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 chipset, with options including:
ASUS ROG Phone 5
- 8GB RAM/ 128GB Storage
- 12GB RAM/ 256GB Storage
- 16GB RAM/ 256GB Storage
ASUS ROG Phone 5 Pro
- 16GB RAM/ 512 GB ROM, and;
ASUS ROG Phone 5 Ultimate
- 18GB RAM/ 512GB ROM
That’s right! The ROG Phone 5 Ultimate is the world’s first phone with 18GB RAM!
The most interesting part of the new ROG Phone 5 is that they come with a headphone jack, along with stereo speakers and Haptic Audio feedback! The phone speakers are powered by two amplifiers and DTS: X stereo speakers as well as ESS DAC sound
The ROG Phone 5 is expected to be available this month, with the Pro coming this April and the Ultimate this May.
The ROG Phone 5 Ultimate will be available only for a limited time. Those who order the limited edition ROG Phone 5 Ultimate will receive a Fan Gift Collection from ASUS.
