Today, Asus announced that the ROG Phone will be available to pre-order in the US through the Asus Store, Amazon and Microsoft Store on October 18. Although we don't yet know when Asus will start shipping the smartphone, we do know the 128GB version will cost $900, while the 512GB model has been priced at $1,100.
Another thing worth noting that all Asus ROG Phone accessories will be available for purchase in the US as well, but they won't ship right away. If you plan to get the Asus ROG Phone, here are all the accessories that will be available in the US:
- Mobile Desktop Dock - $300
- TwinView Dock - $400
- Gamevice Controller - $90
- WiGig Dock - $330
- Asus Professional Dock - $120
- Asus ROG Phone case - $60
The main highlight of the Asus ROG Phone is the 6-inch AMOLED display that features 2,160 x 1,080 pixels resolution and 90Hz refresh rate. Apart from that, the phone has all the specs usually reserved for flagship smartphones such as a powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, 8GB RAM, either 128GB or 512GB internal memory, and a 4,000 mAh battery.

Those prices... where do they get off pricing higher than established flag ships mobile devices? Razer was smart and started their entry device at 799. Reasonable. But 900 and 1100? Madness. And those accessories. Do my eyes deceive me?

That price is stupid for a niche phone. The accessories are insanely priced.
