When a chip maker launches a new flagship platform, almost all smartphone makers do their best to put it on their top-end models. But the real power of such SoCs is seen on the gaming phones. Actually, it’s very difficult to design a true gaming smartphone. The latter should be able of working under a huge pressure all the time. Thus, it should have a very good head dissipation, powerful hardware, very good display, sound effects, corresponding look, etc. That’s why there are not many gaming smartphone makers on the market. Anyways, at present, several major gaming phone brands have already announced their own Snapdragon 888 models. The ASUS ROG gaming phone 5 is among them. Today, this handset was spotted in a video and a photo.
According to the latest information released by the well-known Weibo blogger @WHYLAB (watch the video), the new ROG gaming phone 5 will basically continue the design style of the previous generation. The appearance of the back is basically the same as that of the previous generation. However, there are some details that have been fine-tuned. The rear case is suspected to be made of glass. Because there is a number 5 in the center of its back, it is speculated that it may skip the number “4” and directly name the new machine ROG game phone 5. In addition, the ROG Gaming Phone 5 still comes with a red independent button on the side of the fuselage. If no accident, the function of this button is still to enter the game mode with a single touch.
