Asus ROG Phone pre-orders officially begin; release date set for October 299
At a price of $899.99, those who purchase the device will gain access to a large 6-inch display which is backed by a very respectable 4,000mAh battery. Internally, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 can be found alongside 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage – a separate version with 512GB is set to be offered too but, at the moment, doesn’t appear to be available. Other details include a 3D vapor-cooling chamber which should keep temperatures town during heavy gaming sessions, a 12-megapixel main camera on the rear and a secondary 8-megapixel wide-angle one, and Android 8.1 Oreo straight out of the box.
Recently, it was revealed that Asus would offer a wide range of accessories for this smartphone too. These will three docks: The TwinView which costs $400 and adds a second screen to the device, the Mobile Desktop which allows users to connect the phone up to a 4K monitor, mouse, and keyboard at a cost of $300, and the Profession one that retails at $200 and allows connections to a TV.
Aside from this, a physical gaming controller will be offered for $90, while those wanting to purchase an official case will have to spend $60. Fortunately, those who pre-order the smartphone through Amazon will receive one official case for free.
