A few days ago, ASUS officially confirmed that a new smartphone is coming, but they didn’t reveal any more details. It seems like the company is planning to launch the new generation of its gaming smartphone.
Today, a Chinese Digital Blogger @WHYLAB has revealed a live image of a new ROG gaming smartphone. The live image shows that the device has an almost similar appearance to the previous generation ROG phone. That’s why it can be concluded that this is a new ROG Gaming phone.
The live image shows that the number 5 is also mentioned, which points us that ASUS will skip ROG Gaming Phone 4 and launch ROG Phone 5 like some smartphone manufacturer has done in the past (like OnePlus & Realme).
It is observed that the ROG Branding logo has been moved to the lower left of the back. There is a triple camera setup as well, like the previous generation with a primary 64MP camera. A red button in the lower right corner of the fuselage is also there (maybe used for entering gaming mode with a one-click button).
Some leaks also confirmed that the device would support a 6000mAh Battery with 65W fast charging. Moreover, a ROG branded phone with model number “I005DA” has also been spotted on Geekbench with Snapdragon 888 5G. The phone seems to be the upcoming ROG Phone 5.
Currently, there is no confirmed launch date revealed by the officials.
