Asus ROG Phone set to make its US debut in New York on October 18
After announcing the ROG Phone
way back in June, Asus has confirmed via its US Twitter account that the smartphone will make its debut in the US on October 18 at an event in New York.
Despite the long wait since its initial announcement months ago, the characteristics of the ROG Phone
are expected to remain entirely unchanged. This means that a rather unique glass and aluminum construction will be paired with a tall 6-inch display. Internally, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845
is unsurprisingly included and will be coupled with a considerable 8GB of RAM and either 128GB or 512GB of internal storage. This is all combined with a special vent on the rear that cools the processor. Also, completing the whole gaming setup is a pair of stereo speakers up front a, thankfully, a 3.5mm headphone jack.
In regards to other details, the device comes with Android 8.1 Oreo pre-installed and also features a large 4,000mAh battery. Furthermore, a dual-camera module that boasts a main 12-megapixel camera and a secondary 8-megapixel offering is present on the rear. Up front, on the other hand, sits a single 8-megapixel camera.
Considering the event is set to take place on October 18, sales will presumably commence the following week in the US. This coincides with a recent retail listing
that revealed shipments would happen between October 22 and October 24.
