We're talking primarily about the addition of a small secondary display on the back of the undoubtedly robust and bulky phone, which could be used for things like notifications, alerts, and special gaming effects. While the upcoming device is being dubbed as Asus ROG Phone 4 now, fans should not rule out the possibility of this changing upon the device's official launch.

Here is what you need to know. Although the rumored device has been mentioned in a few leaks before, a live image of the next ROG Phone 5 has now surfaced online.

The pictures reveal the smartphone's rear panel, which features the number "05".

Asus' device with model number I005DA, thought to be the ROG Phone 4, was also approved by China's certification board 3C. Yes, not the four, but ROG Phone 5!

But that's not all. Further, the image shows a red button on the bottom left corner of the back panel. However, the model brand has moved from the middle of the again panel to one of many backside corners of the gadget, which the leakers says may work as a "one-click start button" of the sport mode.

He also criticized Europe's dependence on approval of every single banking transaction with Iran by the US treasury. But Tehran says it could quickly reverse those steps if Washington first lifts its sanctions.


Coming to its camera section, we can witness a horizontally placed triple (probably) rear camera setup that includes a 64MP primary sensor supported by an LED flash.

Leaked specs, this time courtesy of Geekbench, suggest the unit could be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 888, pack at least 8GB RAM, and run an Android 11-based overlay out of the box.

While the image looks convincing, it is to be taken with a pinch of salt, as there is no concrete information about Asus's plans for the next ROG Phone yet.

Earlier rumors and reports, however, have suggested the ROG Phone 5 will support 5G, 65W fast wired charging, and a 6,000mAh dual-cell battery.

Now, a tipster has claimed that the ROG Phone 4 will come with a 6000mAh battery.
