Want the most badass smartphone for gaming? The ROG Phone II is now available for pre-order in Malaysia. This is offered by a retailer on Shopee and it is significantly more affordable than the first-gen ROG Phone.
An online retailer is currently offering the ROG Phone II 8GB RAM + 128GB storage variant for RM2,999. Do note that this is an import set (likely from China) and it comes with a one-year supplier warranty.
According to the description, this is a pre-order and it is expected to ship within 7 days. This particular listing also carries the Shopee Guarantee protection badge.
To recap, the ROG Phone II comes with a 6.59″ Full HD+ 120Hz AMOLED display and it runs on the latest Snapdragon 855+ processor. The gaming smartphone can be configured up to 12GB of RAM and up to 512GB of UFS 3.0 storage. Unlike several gaming smartphones, the ROG Phone II still comes with a headphone jack, proper dual-front-facing speakers and a secondary USB-C port at the sides.
It also gets a 48MP + 13MP dual-camera setup, similar to the ZenFone 6, a 24MP selfie camera that’s optimised for live streaming and a huge 6,000mAh battery. You can learn more from our announcement post.
