However, that report was quickly followed by two images of the phone which clearly showed the presence of a small secondary display on the rear panel. This is exactly where the tape was affixed in the earlier images.

What is not known currently if the upcoming ROG Phone will be called the ROG Phone 4 or the ROG Phone 5. In case you weren’t aware, Asian brands tend to skip the number 4 in their model names. For now, we will term this device the ‘upcoming ROG Phone.’

Rumours surrounding the upcoming ROG Phone has been going on for a while now. Asus was rumoured to be in working on a special collaboration with Qualcomm and the Snapdragon 888 for this phone. The plan earlier apparently was to launch this phone aby teh end of 2020. That, obviously, hasn’t materialized. Anyway, now that they have started testing the phone extensively, we can expect the new RPG Phone to break cover very soon.
