Power Overwhelming

The undisputed king of gaming smartphones has leveled up – The ROG Phone 5s series is now souped-up and powered by the latest Qualcomm® Snapdragon® 888+ 5G which packs industry-leading innovations in 5G, AI, gaming, and camera technologies. The Snapdragon 888+ comes with a Kryo 680 CPU Prime core clock speed at up to 3.0 GHz and the 6th generation Qualcomm AI Engine.

The GameCool 5 cooling system has an optimum thermal structure featuring a centered CPU with the battery split into two parts, one located on each side of the CPU. This ensures that the heat generated by the CPU is transferred to all the edges and corners of the chassis simultaneously for higher thermal efficiency.

Cutting-edge displays have been a signature ROG Phone feature since its inception, and the new series continues this tradition. Boasting an improved 360 Hz touch-sampling rate, the 144 Hz / 1 ms AMOLED HDR display — delivers a super-smooth gaming experience, with an ultra-low touch latency.

The Armoury Crate which includes a performance manager includes the X Mode, with multiple system profiles to give gamers even more performance settings and performance tuning tools, so they can instantly adapt the phone to the task at hand.

The GameFX audio system now incorporates symmetrical seven-magnet dual speakers for truly balanced stereo sound effects. Optimized in collaboration with audio specialist Dirac, the projected sound quality will grab the user’s aural senses and take them to a different world. There’s also a 3.5 mm headphone jack, and a hi-fi-grade ESS DAC for lossless audio processing worthy of audio enthusiasts.

In addition, the AirTrigger 5 control system and 10 different motion controls give gamers up to four distinct ways to interact with their ROG Phone 5s, delivering an unrivaled level of game control.

To extend both screen-on time and the lifespan of the monster 6000 mAh battery, the new series is optimized using software optimizations and power-saving mechanisms, including a charging upper limit, steady charging, and enhanced scheduled charging. Rapid charging is assured by the bundled 65-watt HyperCharge adapter, which gets gamers up and running again in the fastest possible time.
