Announcement. ASUS ROG Phone 5, 5 Pro and 5 Ultimate gaming smartphones

The ROG Phone 5 family of gaming smartphones has been released under the ROG (Republic of Gamers) brand. Three models. Very similar. And all are not cheap, of course.

Younger, ROG Phone 5.It costs from € 799 (₽70,500, $ 949) for the 8 + 128 GB version to € * 999 for the 16 + 256 GB version. A whole sea of ​​reviews in English came out on the smartphone at the same time as the announcement. You can find links to them on the smartphone page on our website.

Medium, ROG Phone 5 Pro. € 1,199 (₽106,000, $ 1,420) for the only 16 + 512 GB version available. There are no reviews for this model yet.

Senior, ROG Phone 5 Ultimate. € 1299 (₽115000, $ 1540) for the only available version 18 + 512 GB. There are reviews.

The middle and older models have a curiouschip. Additional ROG Vision screen on the back. Nice animated pictures are displayed there - when the smartphone is in gaming mode, when it is charging, etc. You can put your own pictures. But just pictures. The text of notifications or something similar cannot be displayed there. The ROG Phone 5 Pro has a color screen, while the Ultimate is suddenly monochrome. See the ROG Phone 5 Ultimate reviews for what it looks like. As for me, cool, but useless. A purely beautiful technological design element.

Briefly about boring, about characteristics. The chipset is the most powerful available, i.e. Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 (700K AnTuTu Points) I have already said about memory. There is no memory card support.

The screen is huge, 6.78 ″.AMOLED with a high refresh rate of 144 Hz and a sensor polling rate of 300 Hz. Ultra-fast response, ultra-clear operation. The resolution is good, 1080 × 2448 (395 ppi). Gloved work is suddenly supported - which is something you would not expect from a gaming smartphone.

The battery is huge, 6000 mAh. More precisely, there are two 3000 mAh batteries. 65W ultra-fast charging. There is no wireless charging.

The cameras are unlikely to be the strong point of this smartphone, but the set is solid enough. Front camera with a resolution of 24 MP. Rear trio 64 + 13 + 5 MP (main module Sony IMX686, wide-angle, macro).

There is NFC, Wi-Fi 6e, 5G, LTE, and other standardcharms. The fingerprint scanner is built into the screen. Smartphones exist in a wild number of variants, differing in the set of supported frequencies. But our LTE frequencies seem to be available in all variants.

Interesting.

Advanced cooling system.The processor is located in the center of the smartphone. On the sides of it are two halves of the battery. Evaporation chamber, graphite plates for heat dissipation. Removable cooler AeroActive Cooler 5. Put it on your smartphone - and it starts blowing right into the center, where the processor is.

Advanced sound thanks to Dirac. Symmetrical stereo speakers. The standard 3.5 mm audio output has not been forgotten either.

Super system of additional control elements- to the delight of gamers. Certain ultrasonic buttons, additional analog buttons on the cooler, additional sensors on the rear panel ... I would be glad to write more about all this, but it is better to see such things live, and I have not seen them.

Whether smartphones will be available in Russia - and if so - when and how much - there is no information yet.
