Asus ROG Phone will be released in the US, price remains a mystery
In early June, when Asus unveiled its gaming-oriented ROG Phone, it didn't provide too many details about its launch. The company only mentioned that the handset would be released sometime in the third quarter (July - September), without saying where.

In case you're wondering, the Asus ROG Phone is coming to the US. We know this because the device is listed on the official Asus USA website, where anyone can discover its previously-announced specs (in addition to lots of promo images).

Asus presents the new handset - which runs Android 8.1 Oreo - as a "game changer" that offers "epic performance, unbeatable visuals, and total control." These claims are supported by features like a Snapdragon 845 processor, 8 GB of RAM, a 6-inch, 1080 x 2160 pixels AMOLED HDR display, unique touch sensors, and so on. Of course, we won't know just how good the phone is until we get the chance to test it.

While Asus has yet to reveal any information regarding the price of ROG Phone, it's very likely that this is going to be an expensive device. Most probably, the smartphone will be sold unlocked in the US. We'll contact Asus to see if we can get more details on its release. Stay tuned.

In my eye, it's unique design is definitely edgy, yet attractive.

I am not a gamer but I love my Razer gaming phone. Specs are pretty similar but Razer has higher resolution screen and the 120 Hz refresh rate make it very smooth also the speakers are loud and actually produce some low frequency. Let's see if ASUS can match it for $600 on sale or $700 regular price.

The ROG phone is defiantly going to surpass the Razer phone in every way but the 120Hz, which probably wont be missed because OLED is what most want and at 90Hz I have to agree. Unfortunately the price is going to be well above the Razer phone, it will be no less than $1000 and I'm think more than that, it comes with that cooling system out of the box and no less than 128GB in storage, I cringe when I imagine a price range of $1250-$1500 for a phone and I've already decided i'm getting it so I will hope for the best.

I pretty much agree. For me the Razer meets my needs better than the Note 8 I sold to get it.

I was actually going to buy one until it proved to not have such great battery life, how is that compared to the note 8?
