After teasing its arrival, ROG Philippines finally launched the ROG Phone 5 series! I initially thought that they would only bring the normal ROG Phone 5. They proved me wrong by bringing ALL THREE MODELS including the Ultimate Edition! Get to know the pricing and availability of the whole series below!
ROG Phone 5 Classic
Also known as the regular ROG Phone 5, the Classic edition comes in two colors: Phantom Black and Storm White. You get two options in terms of RAM and storage here. The 8GB / 128GB model costs P39,995 and the 16GB / 256GB model costs P49,995. The availability of the Classic version actually depends on the color you want. Phantom Black variants will be the first to arrive in April 2021 while the Storm White ones will come later in May. The 8GB / 128GB model comes with a bundle worth P2,495 that consists of the Aero Case and the Aero Active Cooler 5. Meanwhile, the 16GB / 256GB model actually comes with the two freebies in the 8GB / 128GB model plus the Akira Oversized Tee and the ROG Kunai Gamepad! (This bundle is worth P10,485!)
ROG Phone 5 Pro and Ultimate
Both the ROG Phone 5 Pro and ROG Phone 5 Ultimate carry the ROG Vision rear matrix display. That display on the Pro is colored while the Ultimate gets a monochrome one. The Pro comes with 16GB of RAM while the Ultimate gets 18GB. Both models come with 512GB of storage. When you get the 5 Pro for P54,995, you get a bundle worth P2,495 consisting of the Aero Active Cooler 5 and the Aero Case. You get that with the Ultimate as well, but also comes with a Special Gift Box (the whole bundle is worth P5,990). The Ultimate Edition costs P59,995 and will include the Aero Active Cooler 5, the Aero Case, and a Special Gift Box. Both of these models will arrive at the end of May 2021.
For a more enhanced mobile gaming experience, the ROG Phone 5 has optional accessories that you can purchase. All ROG Phone 5 bundles come with the Aero Active Cooler 5 which includes a cooling fan for better sustained gaming performance. You can also get the ROG Kunai Gamepad for P6,995 and will be available in April 2021.
