The ASUS ROG Phone 5, ROG Phone 5 Pro, and ROG Phone 5 Ultimate are the new releases for this month. There aren't really many differences to these phones aside from their RAM and storage. However, the Pro and Ultimate are equipped with ROG Vision, it's a rear matrix display that shows animations for system alerts and notifications that could be customized. The ROG Phone 5 Pro comes with a colored ROG Vision while ROG Phone 5 Ultimate comes with a monochrome one.


The Pro and Ultimate also feature a hidden rear touch sensor on the back cover that has L2/R2 that works like on the consoles. They also work together with the ultrasonic sensors, the AeroActive Cooler 5 buttons, and motion controls. Plus, the ROG Phone 5 series comes with optional modular accessories, like ROG Kunai 3 gamepad controls and ROG Lighting Armor case that features Aura Lighting.


All of the ROG Phone 5 series has the ultimate processor, Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 and also the 6,000mAh battery that was split into two 3,000mAh cells, because of this, the chipset will be between the two cells allowing the AeroActive Cooler to be closer to it. This means that the heat will be diverted away from the user's finger but more importantly, it allows the phone to have a 65W fast charging.

Now for the main event, this are the specs of the three models and their prices:
