Republic of Gamers (ROG) Philippines has officially announced the local pricing and date of availability of its newest gaming smartphone line, the ROG Phone 5 series, consisting of the ROG Phone 5 Classic, ROG Phone 5 Pro, and ROG Phone 5 Ultimate.

As a dream smartphone of every mobile gamer, ROG didn’t fail to gear up its latest handsets with top-notch gaming features, from its physique down to the things hidden under the hood.

For starters, the series is loaded with the latest Snapdragon 888 chipset, allowing the three powerful devices to deliver unrivaled performance. This enables ROG’s newest gaming smartphones to offer irresistible features, such as 5G, AI, gaming, camera technologies.

This also allows mobile gamers to enjoy a whopping 35% increase in GPU performance and 25% improvement in CPU performance, even when handling the heaviest 3D mobile games.

Of course, ROG also packed it with outstanding gaming features you won’t find anywhere else.

In fact, to deliver maximum sustained performance, it sports the brand’s unique GameCool 5 cooling system that boasts an optimum thermal structure. This consists of a centered CPU with the battery split into two parts—ensuring that the heat generated by the CPU is dissipated to all parts of the chassis for an improved and higher thermal efficiency.

Its revamped 3D vapor chamber and extensive graphite sheets will also let the heat spread evenly across the device’s body. This helps in reducing heat build-up in the middle of the phone.

Gamers can also expect that the new ROG Phone 5 series can deliver a 10-degree Celsius drop in the CPU temperature when playing heavy mobile games—thanks to the enhanced AeroActive Cooler 5.

ROG also makes sure that gamers will have an outstanding experience while playing games, as the series supports a total of 10 different motion controls, allowing users to choose the best control options that will perfectly fit their gameplay.
