- A new video suggests the back of the next ROG Phone will sport a secondary display.
- Like the AniMe Matrix screen on the Zephyrus G14, it looks like youâ€™ll be able to customize it to display different information.
After Asus started teasing the existence of its next ROG Phone last week, the leaks have come in at a steady clip. On Monday, we got to see the phoneâ€™s back, which seemed to confirm the companyâ€™s next handset will be known as the ROG Phone 5, not ROG Phone 4. But that photo left us with more questions than answers ultimately.
To start, whatâ€™s that red button on the side do? And what about that component that has replaced the RGB ROG logo?
A short clip uploaded to Weibo and spotted by MySmartPrice answers at least that second question. As you can see from the video, the ROG Phone 5 will feature a secondary screen reminiscent of the ROG Zephyrus G14â€™s AniMe Matrix display. Unfortunately, the person who uploaded the video didnâ€™t say what you do with the tech. However, if the G14 is any indication, youâ€™ll be able to customize the display to see things like battery life and audio levels. It may also display notifications.

Todayâ€™s leak helps paint a clearer picture of what we can expect from the ROG Phone 5, but thereâ€™s still a lot we donâ€™t know about its internals. A benchmark uploaded to GeekBench in December suggests the phone will feature a Snapdragon 888 processor and at least 8GB of RAM. Some reports have said it will also include a 6,000mAh battery and 65W fast charging. Last year, Asus announced the ROG Phone 3 in July and released it in August. With the leaks coming so early this time around, it seems like we can expect the ROG Phone 5 sooner rather than later, which should help answer those questions.
