Ragphone 5, the latest Asus gaming phone, is introduced in three models: normal, Pro and Ultimate. The most powerful model of this phone is equipped with 18 GB of RAM.

As promised, Asus has finally unveiled the Asus ROG Phone 5 gaming phone . This gaming flagship has been redesigned to provide more processing power and be more ergonomic. According to GSMArena , Asus has introduced the new phone in several models, the Ultimate model has 18 GB of RAM.

The regular model is the new Asus Ragphone 5, which comes in three configurations; Configurations called  A, B, and C. The difference between these configurations goes back to RAM. Config A will have twelve or sixteen gigabytes of RAM and 256 gigabytes of storage, and Config B will have eight gigabytes of RAM and 128 gigabytes of storage, and Config C will have eight gigabytes of RAM and 128 gigabytes of storage and 2GB of storage.

Most of the configuration is UFS 3.1, except for the C series and B configurations with 128 GB of storage. Did we talk too much about the technical specifications of the device? No, Ragphone 5 is a gaming device, and when we talk about gaming devices, the technical specifications come first.

The name of the second  Rugphone 5 Pro (Asus ROG Phone 5 Pro)  is available in a single configuration with 16 GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 512 GB of UFS storage. The third model is called  Asus ROG Phone 5 Ultimate , which uses 18 GB of RAM. The Ragphone 5 Ultimate is not the first phone in the world with this amount of RAM; Because Nubia recently introduced the Redmage 6 Pro with 18 GB of RAM. Contrary to rumors, the Asus Ragphone 5 Ultimate does not have one terabyte of storage memory, and in addition, it does not have a microSD memory card slot.

All three models of the Ragphone 5 series use Qualcomm’s flagship Snapdragon 888 processor. Asus has put powerful components inside the Ragphone 5 to differentiate it from other devices on the market. Surprisingly, one of the major winners of the Ragphone 5 hardware is the product battery. Asus announces the presence of a 6,000 mAh battery in the Ragphone 5. This capacity is divided between two cells. Dividing the battery into two cells has helped Asus reduce the distance between the motherboard and the center of the phone. This has two advantages: The AeroActive Cooler 5 cooling system is as close as possible to the device chip; ۲. The heat generated stays away from the user’s finger.

The two-part design allows Asus to increase the charging speed to 65 watts. Ragphone 5 has two USB-C ports and like the previous generation, you can use the USB-C port built into the bottom or side of the device. The charging side port can be used to connect to an external monitor via HDMI or connect headphones or power the AeroActive Cooler 5.

The Ragphone 5 uses Samsung’s 6.78-inch AMOLED display on the front panel, which is larger than the previous model’s 6.59-inch display. The Rugphone 5 display has HDR10 + standard and covers 111% of the DCI-P3 color space with 151% of the sRGB color space, and the all-white screen (APL100) has a maximum brightness of 800 nits.

The resolution and refresh rate of the Ragphone 5 display are + 1080p and 144Hz (response time of one millisecond), respectively, which has not changed compared to the previous generation; However, in the Ragphone 5, the touch sampling rate is set at 300 Hz. According to Asus, the delay in touch is 24.3 milliseconds. The display operates at 60 or 120 or 144 Hz, and if you select the automatic option, the refresh rate will change based on the content of the display.

Goris Glass Victos glass is used on the screen of Asus Ragphone 5. This screen has a special cover that allows your finger to move easily on it, even when sweaty. Despite the increase in screen size, Asus has been able to reduce the surrounding margin by 25% in the new generation. The weight of the device remains essentially unchanged at 238 grams.

The Asus Ragphone 5 Pro and Asus Rugphone 5 Ultimate are available in a package with AeroActive Cooler 5 cooling. Asus says the AeroActive Cooler 5 lowers the surface temperature by 15 degrees Celsius and the chip temperature by 10 degrees Celsius. This cooler includes two AirTrigger 5 ultrasonic switches and they can be used as shortcuts and their use is not limited to the phone. For example, you can press the sides of the phone while using portrait mode.

If you need more accessories, the ROG Kunai 3 gamepad is available for the Asus Ragphone 5. ROG Clip allows you to use the PlayStation 4  or Xbox or Studio controller. The Professional Dock is equipped with an HDMI port and two USB ports. TwinView Dock 3 is not supported on Asus Ragphone 5.

The camera used in the Asus Ragphone 5 is the same as we saw in the previous model. The main camera is a 64-megapixel camera with a quad-color color filter array called the IMX686, which offers OCL autofocus. The second camera has a 13-megapixel sensor and an ultra-wide lens with a viewing angle of 125 degrees, which lacks autofocus, and the third camera has a 5-megapixel macro. The front panel of the phone hosts a 24-megapixel selfie camera. The main camera on the back panel can capture 8K video at 30 frames per second and 4K at 60 frames per second (or 120 frames per second in slow motion). The anti-shake system used in this phone is also electronic.

The Asus Ragphone 5 features a 3.5mm headphone jack with an ESS Saber ES9280AC Pro Quad DAC digital-to-analog converter. The phone automatically detects the impedance of the headphones and uses the appropriate mode to play audio content. On the front of the phone, there are two speakers that are 21% more powerful than the previous generation. Not to mention the aptX Adaptive, LDAC and AAC codecs are supported on the new Asus phone.

Another difference between the new Asus handsets is that the standard model has an RGB backlight on the back panel of the ROG logo, which is similar to the 2020 model. Both the Pro and Ultimate phones use a small touch screen on the back panel, which Asus calls ROG Vision. This screen is PM-OLED color in Pro model and PM-OLED monochrome in Ultimate model. These displays display customizable graphic designs for incoming calls and the game charging process.
