Gaming smartphones still have their place and with ever ending thirst for more FPS in games the gaming smartphone segment should keep innovating with some of the most intriguing hardware and design. Asus’ successor, the ROG Phone 3, seems to illustrate this point. The next ROG Phone 5 (name unconfirmed) popped up in a leaked video from Weibo, and it appears to be the craziest phone so far.
The video shows the ROG Phone 5 features an extra screen on the back. At first glance, this small tilted screen will replace the RGB-lit ROG logo we saw on previous models.
As you can see in the video above, the small screen can probably be configured to display custom messages and animations. In all likelihood, it will also display notifications and calls when the phone is upside down.
The ROG Phone 5 could be launched in March or April, depending on the constellation (if it’s even an indicator) in the official teaser. It is said to have a 144 Hz display and is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 processor. According to the leak, it will also have a bulky design similar to its predecessors.
