Hardware lovers and enthusiasts will soon have a big offering in India. ASUS has announced that its ASUS ROG Phone 5 Ultimate is getting close to a release in the country. Most precisely, on December 26, the Taiwanese firm will unleash its “Ultimate” gaming experience in the country. For starters, the ASUS ROG Phone 5 Ultimate gets this name from its impressive 18 GB of RAM and 512 GB of Internal Storage. This is more than a good part of laptops are offering. As a gaming smartphone, this is certainly the ultimate experience that you can get for multi-tasking and other purposes. Of course, the device won’t be cheap with an INR 79.999 price tag ($1,060). However, at the end of the day, this is cheaper than an iPhone 13 Pro Max, for example.
ASUS has introduced the ROG Phone 5 version in the Black way back in April. Then, it launched the ROG Phone 5s model boasting the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888+ in August in some markets. The ROG Phone 5 Ultimate packs a unique rear monochrome display PMOLED display that matches the premium frosted glass and unique Storm White color, it displays customizable animations for system alerts and status. Other specifications are the same as the original ROG Phone 5.
