Asus, the technology company we know for its products for gamers, skipped the figure 4 when naming the new ROG Phone model. The reason is superstition.
Technology companies are very careful with naming when it comes to the products they produce. The most important reason for this is that the name of a product creates the perception of the users. We see that companies pay extra attention to this, especially in products for players. By choosing mythological and cooler-sounding names, companies are trying to give the user a special product feel. However, this is not the only factor that determines the naming. Sometimes traditional reasons also affect this nomenclature. Asus skipped 4 for the ROG Phone, the player phone that had a very short release, and went directly to 5. This is because the number 4 is considered ominous in Asia.
It happened before
Not wanting Asian superstitions to affect phone sales, Asus will bypass the ROG Phone 4 and launch the Asus ROG Phone 5 directly. We have seen this situation before when we switched from the OnePlus 3T to the next model. The next model appeared as OnePlus 5 instead of 4. This highly acceptable situation came about thanks to a post on Weibo.
The phone is coming in March
The Asus ROG Phone 5, which is expected to be released in March, will come out with impressive features. Qaulcomm Snapdragon 888 processor, 144 Hz high refresh rate, FHD + display, and 16 GB RAM are some of these features. The phone will also have some add-ons and cooling system that improve the gaming experience. Two 3,000 mAh batteries that will charge at 65W are among the known features of the phones. With a little time to its release, ROG Phone 5 seems to be truly exciting.
