Asus Rog 5 may hit India in March and that’s expected based on previous releases and roll outs. We know that the ROG phone 3 was launched in July 2020 and international launch was delayed and the phone reached US in October 2020. So we may expect this to launch in March 2021 and international availability of the smartphone may be delayed. However, we expect this to hit Indian market very soon than later.
We except we will see the smartphone in MWC Shanghai event expected to begin on 23rd march 2021 based on all leaks and teases about the device. If event did not move further as other events have moved to different dates due to pandemic and other geographical restrictions.

Design and Build
- The smartphone will have 172.83 x 77.2 x 10.2mm
- Secondary display is expected on the rear of the phone identical to ROG Phone 3
We don’t expect much changes in the smartphone as previous ROG phone 3 was super powered with the specs and we expect the same with ROG Phone 5 with minor changes in its design, built and hardware. However, we believe the smartphone will have a secondary display and is likely to have high graphic for gaming users. The device will have full customization options as it will be managed by ROG system vision which we have seen in phone 3. Video below shows a brief leaks of the smartphone which hits as gaming phone design from back.
The device is expected to have a dedicated gaming button to launch games easily and its placement could be at the left side of the smartphone. We have not got much details from front side of the device as shown in the video and it is little difficult to get a hit of front display however we will see a front camera on the top side of the smartphone.
The device will have 6.78-inch, Full HD+ with 144Hz, 270Hz touch refresh rate sensor and the display is expected to be a AMOLED display according to details sound at TENAA. The ROG Phone 5 will be a larger display device in comparison to ROG Phone 3. We believe the device to have AMOLED panel along with 144Hz refresh rate. The display resolution was Full HD+ in its predecessor device and we expect this to have the same specs for display with some boosted HDR 10+.
- Qualcomm Snapdragon 888, 8GB RAM + 12GB RAM
- 65W charging wired Super Fast charging
- 6000MAH battery
ROG Phone 5 will be powered by Qualcomm’s latest processor (Snapdragon 888) and we expect that because it is going to be a gaming beast. Based on leaks and our analysis, we expected phone to have Snapdragon 888 with onboard RAM of 8GB and 12GB. We will not be surprised if the smartphone come up with a 16GB variant too because it is a gaming phone and we may expect that.
Most probably, we expect the smartphone to come up with 6000 MAH batter with super fast charging with dual cell power for 65watt charging and we also expect the phone to come with Android 11 out of the box.
