Although ASUS is launching the ROG Phone 5 on March 10th next month, but the device had already popped up on DxOMark for its audio review – which it did extremely well with an overall score of 79 points and is currently sitting at the top of the chart.
In terms of audio playback, the ROG Phone 5 excels in the artifacts, spatial and dynamic test categories. However, DxOMark did noted that the “bass could be slightly more present” and its maximum volume is comparatively softer than its competitors.
Recording-wise, the ROG Phone 5 continues to impress in the artifacts, timbre and volume test categories. Despite that, DxOMark claimed that the upper mid-ranger distortions are more perceivable under loud environment.
Whatever it is, what most of us are more interested in is probably the fact that the official render of the ROG Phone 5 was also published in DxOMark’s review. Of course, the render we’re looking at now is much clearer than what we’d saw from its earlier TENAA listing.
As we know, there will be two models for the ROG Phone 5 this time round. The higher-end model, as seen in the render here, comes with a dot-matrix display at the rear side – an unique feature which sets the phone apart from its predecessors. The base model however, will not be blessed with this feature.
Other than that, the ROG Phone 5 is expected to arrive with a 6.78-inches display which is likely to sport a smooth refresh rate of at least 144Hz. It’s also likely to bring along a 64 megapixels triple-camera setup, and is pretty much confirmed to be powered by the flagship Snapdragon 888 chipset.
Keeping its lights on will probably be a massive 6,000mAh that comes with 65W fast-charging support as revealed by its recent 3C listing.
