Asus ROG Phone: a next generation allegedly surfaces right after the current 5 series' launch

The ROG Phone 5 has now descended on the Android gaming scene, with its super-powered Pro and Ultimate variants for good measure. However, a tech blog claims to have found what could be their successor on the Bluetooth SIG certification website already. Then again, the evidence of this unusually advanced leak is now nowhere to be found.

The Asus ROG Phone 5 has now been unleashed, equipped with all it might need to conquer the mobile gaming world in 2021. This arsenal includes a low-latency (24.3ms), 6.78-inch FHD+ E4 AMOLED display with a touch-sampling rate of 300Hz, as well as the Snapdragon 888 SoC, a 6,000mAh dual-cell battery and increasingly rare front-facing stereo speakers.

Then again, its main rival, the RedMagic 6, has debuted with a 165Hz display refresh rate, whereas the new Asus gaming flagships have stuck with 144Hz. Then again, both are equal in that they have more than 1 variants for the first time in 2021.

The ROG Phone 5 Pro is the one with the multi-colored, AniMe Matrix-like rear-facing display hinted at in numerous leaks: called the ROG Vision screen, it is made of PM-OLED and can be extensively customized. The newly-minted 5 Ultimate, on the other hand, is the well-hyped inaugural 18GB RAM variant. It also has a secondary PM-OLED display, although it is monochrome and rather less Zephyrus G15-like in this case.

The 2021 ROG Phone has thus only just been launched, starting at €800 (~US$959) for an 8GB/128GB base model and rising to €1,300 (~$1558) for the 5 Ultimate; however, 91Mobiles has alleged that Asus has at least 1 successor for the new line in the works already.

This leak apparently consists of a screengrab of a Bluetooth SIG listing for an ASUS_I007D, which, as the 5 series has ASUS_I005Dx model numbers, could indeed be an unusually early sign of a 2022 ROG Phone. However, this page is no longer to be found on the testing body's website; therefore, it seems the 3 new ROG Phones have been given the space to shine for now.

Meanwhile, ROG Phone 3s are still available on Amazon

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
