Asus is already well known in the gaming-oriented smartphone market. With the introduction of the ROG Phone 5 family in spring, the Asian brand has established itself as a barometer in this market niche.
That state seems to be motivating the company to do more and better. In fact, it is known that the presentation of a new gaming smartphone, the Asus ROG Phone 5S, is already in the works.
Asus ROG Phone 5S to be released on August 16
According to Chun, on Twitter, Asus will unveil its new gaming smartphone on August 16. Everything indicates that we will start next week with great news thanks to the announcement of this team.
As the name implies, the Asus ROG Phone 5S will be an improved version of the ROG Phone 5 that is already on the market. The reason is the availability of the Snapdragon 888+ processor, the most powerful Qualcomm processor today.
After the launch of Xiaomi Mi MIX 4 with this SoC, Asus does not want to be left behind and will launch its own team with the same processor. In addition, it prepares to increase the amount of RAM in the device, offering up to 18GB of RAM.
In fact, the Asus ROG Phone 5S will only be available in two versions: 16 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage or 18 GB of RAM and 512 GB of storage. The rest of the specifications will not change.
This means that we will have an OLED screen with a 144Hz refresh rate, ideal for games. Its battery will be 6000mAh and it will have a fast charge of 65W.
For those who want to take pictures, there will be a triple set on the rear of 64MP + 13MP + 5MP. On the front, we expect the Asus ROG Phone 5S to come with a 24MP lens.
In a few days we will know all the details of the Asus ROG Phone 5S. And from what we already know, this has the potential to lead the market for today’s most powerful Android smartphones.
