The ROG Phone 5 along with its other variants finally enter the Philippine market!

Today marks the arrival of the ROG Phone 5 and its variants in the Philippines a month after its announcement. Much like the previous ROG Phone releases each one will come packed with an AeroActive Cooler with some deals including sweet freebies.

Just a quick recap, the phone is powered by Qualcomm’s latest  2.84GHz Snapdragon 888 5G mobile platform. For the display we have a 6.8-inch Samsung AMOLED panel with 144Hz refresh rate and 1ms response time. Protecting that is Gorilla Glass Victus, making it one fast and tough cookie. Sound is managed by 7-magnet speakers and the GameFX audio system. Then of course, you have the ever so reliable AirTriggers with even more support for gestures.

As for the other ROG Phone 5 variants, you have the Pro and the Ultimate. The Pro has the same internals as the classic variant but with more customizability. You get two additional buttons and a customizable rear matrix display dubbed the ROG Vision. This one is basically the Zephyrus G14 in mobile form. Then you have the Ultimate, which has all the upgrades of the Pro but with a whopping 18GB of RAM.
