Mr. Dinesh answered this question in parts, where he began by explaining the speed binned Snapdragon 888+ SoC, which offers improved performance as it has a higher clock speed of up to 3GHz and also offers improved AI processing. He also confirmed that ROG Phone 5s, when compared to the ROG Phone 5 has a finetuned cooling solution for better compatibility.

He said that the Asus ROG Phone 5s uses a multi-layer cooling system. The Snapdragon 888+ SoC is attached to a large copper chamber, which covers a significant percentage area of the phone. Then there is a graphite sheet, and even the mid-frame helps with the heat dissipation.

He explained that even the split battery design with a mid-board configuration tends to maintain a cooler temperature even while charging and playing. Additionally, he also said that using accessories like the aero cooler fan will further improve the heat dissipation, helping the device to sustain peak performance.
