Asus ROG Phone 5 Hands On & First Impressions: Predictably Fantastic!

Mar 10, 2021 20:14 IST | By Editorji News Desk

Asus has launched the gaming-focused ROG Phone 5 in India, and it packs a powerful punch. Here's our hands-on and first impressions of the overpowered flagship.

Asus ROG Phone comes with a Snapdragon 888 5G chipset, and an Adreno 660 GPU. The 6.78-inch Samsung AMOLED screen has a 144Hz refresh rate and a 1ms response time. Asus also claims an industry-leading 24.3ms touch latency for better gaming performance. Along with the signature air triggers on the shoulders, several new motion gesture controls have also been added. Keeping the lights on is a massive 6000mAh battery that supports up to 65W fast charging. There's a 64MP triple rear camera setup, along with a 24MP front shooter. In a rarity for flagships, the ROG Phone 5 also includes a headphone jack. The phone will go on sale exclusively on Flipkart starting April 15. While the base 8GB+128GB variant costs ₹49,999, prices go all the way up to ₹79,999 for the 'Ultimate' 18GB+512GB variant.
