Asus has launched the new ROG Phone 5s and ROG Phone 5s Pro in India. The phones, which were introduced last year, come in addition to the existing ROG Phone 5 in the country. The ROG Phone 5s series, while carrying a design similar to the ROG Phone 5, comes with last year’s Qualcomm Snapdragon 888+ SoC, a 144Hz display, AeroActive Cooler 5 for thermal management, and more.
ROG Phone 5s Pro: Specs and Features
The ROG Phone 5s Pro features a 6.78-inch Full HD+ Samsung E4 AMOLED display. The panel supports a 144Hz refresh rate, a 360Hz touch sampling rate, and Always-on HDR. There’s also a secondary Matrix p-AMOLED display on the rear, which is meant to display notifications, GIFs, and more.
Along with the overclocked version of last year’s Snapdragon 888 chipset, the phone gets up to 18GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 512GB of UFS 3.1 storage. The rear camera department is home to three sensors, including a 64MP Sony IMX686 main camera, a 13MP ultra-wide lens, and a 5MP macro camera. Upfront, there is a 24MP selfie shooter. It comes with 8K video recording, Pro video mode, slow-motion videos, and more camera features.
Since it’s a gaming phone, it comes with ultrasonic AirTrigger sensors, AeroActive Cooler 5 heat management system, and GameFX audio system. It also has support for an in-display fingerprint scanner, symmetrical 7-magnet dual front-facing speakers, sub-6Ghz 5G networks, a 3,5mm audio jack, and more.
The ROG Phone 5s Pro is backed by a dual-cell 6,000mAh battery with support for 65W fast charging and runs Android 11 with ROG UI on top that introduces the Armoury Crate App, the Game Genie overlay, the AudioWizard app, and more for an improved gaming experience.
ROG Phone 5s: Specs and Features
The ROG Phone 5s is a slightly toned-down variant of the ROG Phone 5s Pro. Although it comes with the same display as the 5s Pro, it doesn’t house the secondary rear display. Instead, it has the RGB-based ROG logo at the back, much like the ROG Phone 5. It also misses out on the two touch sensors that the 5s Pro has. The chipset, RAM+storage configurations, battery capacity, cameras, and more remain the same as the Pro variant.
