ASUS is said to be working on its next-generation ROG Phone. While the predecessor model was called ROG Phone 3, it is speculated that the next device will be arriving as ROG Phone 5, and not as ROG Phone 4. Its 8 GB RAM variant was seen at Geekbench in December and now its 16 GB model has appeared on the benchmarking platform.
The ASUS ROG Phone 5 has appeared with its ASUS_1005DA model number at Geekbench. The listing reveals that its Snapdragon 888 (mentioned as ‘lahaina’) chipset is coupled with 16 GB of RAM. The phone boots to Android 11 OS. In the single-core test, the ROG Phone 5 scored 1125 and it secured a multi-core test score of 3714.
It seems that China will be one of the first markets that will be receiving the ROG Phone 5. The reason behind it is that it has already received certifications from the country’s TENAA and 3C platforms.
The TENAA listing revealed that the ROG Phone 5 measures 172.835 x 77.252 x 10.29mm and it is fitted with a 6.78-inch screen. Like the predecessor model, the handset could be featuring an AMOLED screen with a refresh rate of 144Hz or higher.
The rear shell of the device has a horizontal camera module with a 64-megapixel primary camera. The device is backed by a 6,000mAh dual-cell battery that carries support for 65W rapid charging. The back panel also features a secondary display for displaying notifications or some gaming-related information.
