On the outside, all three models look pretty identical, except the ROG Phone 5 Pro and ROG Phone 5 Ultimate feature colored and monochrome ROG Vision rear-matrix displays at the back, as well as hidden rear touch sensors that can act like L2/R2 triggers on a physical game-console controller.

The ROG Vision can display a variety of animations while the phone is charging, if there’s an incoming call, when X Mode is enabled, and more. You will also be able to show custom animations on the device’s ROG Vision display for a more personal touch.
