The Asus ROG Phone 5 will be the first major gaming phone of the year when it launches next week, and new information suggests that it will also be one of the most powerful phones.
The Asus ROG Phone 5 will be unveiled on March 10, and the phone was recently spotted on Geekbench listings. It confirms that the phone will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 chipset and will run on Android 11 out of the box.
In the benchmark, the device records a single-core score of 1,113 and a multi-core score of 3,468. More interestingly, the model has a whopping 18GB of RAM – far more than most other Android flagships which have somewhere between 6GB and 12GB of RAM.
Other leaked features include a 144Hz Super AMOLED display, three cameras on the back, a large 6,000mAh battery with support for fast charging, ultrasonic shoulder triggers, dual USB Type-C ports and a comprehensive suite of gaming features.
Asus will hope that these extras help it stand out from the crowd, as there are many other Snapdragon 888-powered flagships launching in the coming days. We’re expecting to hear about the OnePlus 9, Nubia Red Magic 6, Oppo Find X3 and more throughout March 2021.
