Following its global reveal earlier this month, ASUS has just announced that the ROG Phone 5 series is finally launching in the Philippines. Specifically, ASUS’ new ROG gaming phone lineup will launch live on the ASUS Republic of Games page on April 10, 2021 at 7PM.
Unlike previous ROG Phone releases, the 5 series consists of three variants: the base ROG Phone 5, a Pro, and an Ultimate version. All three phones pack the same Snapdragon 888 5G processor, 6.78-inch 144Hz 1080p display, and triple camera setup.
