One of the toughest smartphones on the market, and arguably the best “mainstream” gaming phone, finally hit the US market this week. ASUS ‘Republic of Gamers (ROG) gaming phone line has become quite popular in the mobile market, an extension of its very popular part of the PC gaming industry. And its latest addition to the series is the ASUS ROG 5s, successor to the ASUS ROG 5.
Along with the standard ASUS ROG 5s model, there is also an ASUS ROG 5s Pro – which sells for a bit more than the standard model. The Pro houses 18GB of RAM and is only available in black, while the 5s has 16GB and is available in black or white. The ROG 5s also sports a 6.78-inch FHD + display with an HDR resolution of 2448 x 1080 and a variable refresh rate of 144 Hz. The touch sample rate would have been pushed to a surprising 360 Hz.
The ROG 5s battery has one of the highest capacities on a smartphone, at 6000mAh. Of course, it’s a must-have if it’s meant to be used to run demanding games that will keep the phone running smoothly for hours.
It is certainly one of the most specialized phones on the market, fully optimized for the best possible gaming performance for the die-hard mobile gamer. The aesthetic follows the traditional ASUS ROG theme: large, black, rugged, with the laser-printed ROG logo proudly visible on the back.
Without further ado, be the first to check out the new handset on Amazon below, which is the only place it’s available right now, aside from the Mobile Advance site:
