This is worth the wait! ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) Philippines officially announces the availability and pricing of the ROG Phone 5s Pro and ROG Phone 5s. The most-awarded gaming smartphone comes even better with new upgrades and distinct features such as the ROG Vision rear display and the signature GameFX audio system.
The undisputed king of gaming smartphones has levelled up – The ROG Phone 5s series is now souped up and powered by the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 888+ 5G which packs industry-leading innovations in 5G, AI, gaming, and camera technologies. The Snapdragon 888+ comes with a Kryo 680 CPU Prime core clock speed at up to 3.0 GHz and the 6th generation Qualcomm AI Engine.
The GameCool 5 cooling system in the ROG Phone 5s series has an optimum thermal structure featuring a centered CPU with the battery split into two parts, one located on each side of the CPU. This ensures that the heat generated by the CPU is transferred to all the edges and corners of the chassis simultaneously for higher thermal efficiency.
Cutting-edge displays have been a signature ROG Phone feature since its inception, and the ROG Phone 5s series continues this tradition. Boasting an improved 360 Hz touch-sampling rate, the 144 Hz / 1 ms AMOLED HDR display — delivers a super-smooth gaming experience, with an ultra-low touch latency.
The Armoury Crate which includes a performance manager includes the X Mode, with multiple system profiles to give gamers even more performance settings and performance tuning tools, so they can instantly adapt the phone to the task at hand.
The GameFX audio system in the new ROG Phone series now incorporates symmetrical seven-magnet dual speakers for truly balanced stereo sound effects. Optimized in collaboration with audio specialist Dirac, the projected sound quality will grab the user’s aural senses and take them to a different world. There’s also a 3.5 mm headphone jack, and a hi-fi-grade ESS DAC for lossless audio processing worthy of audio enthusiasts.
In addition, the AirTrigger 5 control system and 10 different motion controls gives gamers up to four distinct ways to interact with their ROG Phone, delivering an unrivaled level of game control.
To extend both screen-on time and the lifespan of the monster 6000 mAh battery, the new ROG Phone series is optimized using software optimizations and power-saving mechanisms, including a charging upper limit, steady charging, and enhanced scheduled charging. Rapid charging is assured by the bundled 65-watt HyperCharge adapter, which gets gamers up and running again in the fastest possible time.
ROG Vision can display a variety of cool animations that show whether the phone is charging, if there’s an incoming call, whether X Mode is enabled, and more. Owners can even create custom animations to make their phone even more personal.
The Pro additionally features innovative hidden rear touch sensors on the back cover, which provide L2/R2 trigger functions just like a game console controller.
