Now that the Asus ROG Phone 5S has arrived in Europe, it’s time for us to take a look at what’s new with the series. The pair of phones are known as the ROG Phone 5s and 5s Pro, and they were announced last August.
Asus ROG Phone 5S series are now in Europe
Rog Phone 5s series specs and price
ROG Phone 5s will have a €999 price tag for its version equipped with 12GB RAM and 512GB storage. There’s also a model that stays in-between which offers 16GB RAM and 512GB storage that you can buy for €1,099. Whereas the most expensive model, which is called 5s Pro, comes with 18GB RAM and 512GB storage. It is available for pre-order for €1,299.
You can pre-order all of the models from the Asus eStore. The first units will be sent later this month. ROG Phone 5s will be available in two color options called Phantom Black and Storm White. But the 5s Pro only comes with a Phantom Black finish.
The most striking feature of these phones is their chipset, Qualcomm Snapdragon 888+. This processor comes with an overclocked Prime Kryo 680 CPU core at 3.0GHz, not to mention the 20% improved AI engine. Although this is a minor increase, the new 360Hz touch sampling rate did improve the 24.0 ms touch latency on both 5s models.
These phones offer 6.78-inch 144Hz E4 AMOLED displays including dual-control ultrasonic side sensors. They have 6,000 mAh batteries with 65W quick-charging support. They run under Android 11 with ROG UI.
