Asus exclusive features allow for long periods of mobile gaming at extremely high settings while pushing performance limits to provide excellent in-game framerates on the high resolution, high speed display.
With a smooth and responsive 144 Hz / 1 ms display, a monster 6000mAh battery system, AirTrigger 5 game controls, powerful forward-facing speakers and the latest Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 888 5G Mobile Platform the Asus ROG Phone 5 is unmatched in specifications.
Constant and reliable wireless connections are vital for multiplayer games.

The multiple antenna setup with upgraded HyperFusion technology allows simultaneous connections to WiFi and the mobile network, with intelligent redirection to whichever has the best signal. Pair your ROG Phone 5 with an ASUS WiFi 6 router to experience the full networking potential of WiFi 6.
The massively upgraded AirTrigger 5 control system now gives you three distinct ways to interact with your ROG Phone 5 - a unique feature that's never been seen on a smartphone before. ROG Phone 5 gives you a control experience that's even beyond console-level gaming!
Stunning AMOLED display
Boasting an industry-leading 300 Hz touch-sampling rate(3), the 144 Hz / 1 ms AMOLED display - built by Samsung - gives you a super-smooth gaming experience, with an ultra-low 24.3 ms touch latency(4). The supreme visuals are enhanced even further with world-beating color accuracy, the new always-on HDR technology8 that improves non-HDR visuals, and a screen that's protected by the toughest ever Corning Gorilla Glass Victus. ROG Phone 5 is built to endure - and built to win.
Powerful to the core
The Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 5G Mobile Platform takes mobile processing power to a new level. With a stunning 35%2 increase in rendering performance, even the most demanding 3D games run smoothly with maxed-out settings.

The GameFX audio system on ROG Phone 5 now incorporates symmetrical 7-magnet dual speakers for truly balanced stereo sound effects. Optimised in collaboration with audio specialist Dirac, the projected sound quality will grab your aural senses and take them to a different world. There's a 3.5 mm headphone jack, and a hi-fi-grade ESS DAC for lossless audio processing. GameFX audio on ROG Phone 5 gives you the crystal-clear in-game sound effects and powerful aural soundscapes you've never dared to hope for in a phone.
Controlling a game by moving your phone is a cool and intuitive way to play. ROG Phone 5 supports an unprecedented total of 10 different motion controls, so you can easily pick the moves to fit your game. In a racing game, for example, you can swivel the phone to steer or push it forward to accelerate. Game control has never been so easy.
The ultrasonic side sensors - one of the most-loved features of ROG Phone - are still here, with support for all your favorite gestures. Long battery life, fast to charge
Power on! Power up!
The monster 6000 mAh battery inside ROG Phone 5 now comes with a 65-watt HyperCharge adapter, so you can get a day's use from just a short charge. The battery is separated into two with a PCB in the middle, a design that keeps hotspots away from the grip area for more comfortable gaming.
The most advanced gaming enhancement app is now even better. As well as all your favorite features like floating window, marked clips, and bypass charging, we've added even more gaming-specific features like quick control so you can set up toggles for different actions; haptic audio for vibration based on in-game sound effects; and scout mode to let you see the target more easily.
