Asus ROG Phone 5 specifications, features (expected)

Asus ROG Phone 5 is expected to feature a design similar to the ROG 3 gaming phone. The leaked live image that surfaced on Weibo (via WhyLab) revealed a familiar rear panel with ROG branding below, triple rear camera setup, and a dot matrix back cover. Although the device is tipped to feature similar design, it may come with a few tweaks as the live hands-on video spotted by MySmartPrice last month showed the new ROG Phone sporting a secondary display strip on the back.

As for pricing, each model of the ROG phone tagged an extra $100, for instance, ROG Phone 2 was launched at $899, while the ROG Phone 3 retailed for $999.
