Information from several sources suggests that ASUS is already testing smartphone samples on the flagship Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 processor. The novelty is expected to replace the ROG Phone 3 model (in the first image), a detailed review of which can be found in our material.
The device “lit up” in the Geekbench and HTML5 benchmarks under the designations ASUS_I005DA and ASUS_I005DB. Observers believe these devices will debut in the commercial market under the name ROG Phone 4.
Geekbench talks about using the Lahaina motherboard as part of the smartphone – this name hides the Snapdragon 888 chip, containing one Cortex-X1 core, three Cortex-A78 cores, and a quartet of Cortex-A55 cores. The maximum clock speed is 2.84 GHz. The product includes the Adreno 660 graphics accelerator and the Snapdragon X60 5G modem.
The tested device was equipped with 8 GB of RAM, and the operating system Android 11 was used as a software platform. The result in single-core mode was 1081 points, in multi-core – 3584 points.
It should be noted that the ROG Phone 2 smartphone was introduced in July 2019, and the ROG Phone 3 in July this year. The next-generation device, according to observers, may debut much earlier than usual.
