The rear screen is nothing but a short strip that shows some basic alerts for games, incoming calls and possibly messages.
The next generation ROG Phone by Asus has started making headlines. Recently we saw the device going through 3C certification and now we have it featuring in a short video. In the video posted by a user on Weibo (via GSMArena), a Chinese microblogging website, we see the next generation ROG Phone, dubbed as the ROG Phone 5 sporting a secondary screen at the back.
The rear screen is nothing but a short strip that shows some basic alerts for games, incoming calls and possibly messages. The overall design, however, seems to be on the same lines as ROG Phone 3. The rear camera design and the accents also appear to go through minor changes.

At the front of the unannounced ROG Phone we can see that it has a symmetrical top and bottom bezels like the ROG Phone 3. However, this time they appear slightly slimmer. This also means the phone might have more screen to body ratio, which is in fact, good for gamers.
Given the history of specs that is featured in the ROG line of handsets, we expect top of the line processor and display in this one as well. The ROG Phone 5 is expected to pack 144Hz refresh rate display along with the Snapdragon 888 processor. You may also get a 6,000mAh battery like in the current ROG Phone 3 along with 65W fast charging support.
Some other features that may carry forward from ROG Phone 3 could be 7-magnet speaker, 3rd generation GameCool system and a Copper 3D vapour chamber.
