Asus is prepping for its next gaming-focused handset, the ROG Phone 5, the successor to the Asus ROG Phone 3.
The Taiwan-based company confirmed the official name earlier today on the Chinese microblogging site Weibo. The posting didn’t include any other information about the upcoming handset. It’s worth noting that in countries like China, the digit four is usually skipped due to Asian superstitions — sort of like how the number 13 isn’t included in old buildings.
However, the phone is expected to sport a Snapdragon 888 processor, 6,000mAh battery, 16GB of RAM and 512GB of storage.
A previously leaked video of the handset showcases that the handset will continue to sport rather noticeable bezels, potentially a 6.8-inch display and a small secondary display on the back with alerts, gaming effects and notifications instead of the previous RGB logo.
Reportedly, the device will also feature 65W fast charging technology.
Another rumour indicates that Asus will unveil the device in March for the Chinese market, but a Canadian launch date might be months away.
