The Asus ROG Phone 3 was one of the first smartphones to have 16GB of RAM, it sequel will likely become the first smartphone to offer 18GB – it will be announced on March 10, so competitors have just over a week if they want to be first.

This can be seen in a Geekbench result of the Asus ROG Phone 5, specifically the I005DB version. If you remember, there are two versions – DA and DB. The DA version will be the basis of the Tencent Games edition of the phone, but it is also the one that DxOMark tested in its Audio review. The DB version has a secondary display on the back.

The DA also appeared on Geekbench back in December and it had only 8 GB of RAM. More recently, another DA showed up with 16GB of RAM. There’s a good chance we’ll see a 12GB configuration as well. has already put up a teaser page for the Tencent edition of the ROG Phone 5. There’s not much on there (the price is certainly a place holder), but users can get in line for the upcoming launch (and get a small coupon in the process).

The phone will be powered by the Snapdragon 888 chipset, of course, and will launch with Android 11 out of the box.
