Recently, ASUS confirmed it is working to soon launch a new gaming smartphone of its own, possibly called the ROG Phone 4/5 and he gave us its glimpse via a teaser image that revealed thin bezels while an alleged live image spotted in the wild revealed the design and the camera setup. Now, a small hands-on video of the Asus ROG Phone 4/5 has spotted on Weibo, and thanks to that we get a closer look at the back design in working condition.
As we can see, the leaked video reveals the upcoming ASUS ROG Phone 4/5 will rock a secondary display on the rear panel, which may only be used for notifying incoming calls and messages, or show an animation while gaming. This seems to replace the RGB ROG logo that adorned the rear panels of the previous ROG gaming smartphones.
This video also reveals the triple camera setup that was confirmed through the live image leak a few days back, along with the edgy design that ASUS seems to be sticking to, from the previous generation. If we look closely, we can see the number “05” on the body, suggesting that the upcoming smartphone could be named ROG Phone 5.
Continuing, there’s a mysterious red button in the lower-left corner of the ROG Phone 4/5. This physical key can be used to activate the game mode.
Yesterday, we learned that the ASUS ROG Phone 5 could count on a massive 6000mAh battery and ultra-fast charging of 65W. This is much lower power than what its competitors will offer since the Red Magic 6 and the Black Shark 4 will be compatible with 120W wired fast charging. However, their battery will be limited to 4500mAh.
Finally, the smartphone will be powered by Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon 888 and 8GB of RAM for the most affordable version. Gamers should be able to enjoy an FHD + display with a refresh rate of 144Hz. The ASUS ROG Phone 3 could go up to 160 Hz thanks to a hidden mode for its screen.
As for the launch date of Asus ROG Phone 4/5, a previous teaser poster might indicate a March/April release date. The image shows the Aries constellation which in astrology is associated with the time period between March 21-April 19. It must also be remembered that the first official confirmations of Asus Rog Phone 3 were provided in May and that the presentation took place at the end of July. It is not excluded that in 2021 Asus may anticipate the launch timing.
