A new gaming phone from ASUS is expected to be unveiled very soon. Believe it or not, the ASUS ROG Phone 5. The Taiwanese tech giant is jumping from ROG Phone 3 to ROG Phone 4. It’s mainly because the number ‘4’ is an unlucky number in Chinese. And so we’re anticipating for the ASUS ROG Phone 5. The phone has actually appeared on TENAA already. It’s been shown off and made its way to DxOMark a couple of weeks ago but only for the audio review. The gaming phone got good grades for its audio features.
What we discovered interesting recently is that an 18GB RAM variant has hit Geekbench. Could ASUS be working on a more powerful model? The highest we have seen is 16GB RAM on the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra and the ASUS ROG Phone 3 so 18 sounds better. Pre-orders are also said to be open now on JD.com so there is probably truth to this information.
