This is it. The time has finally come and the world’s most epic gaming smartphone has finally launched in Malaysia. Meet the ASUS ROG Phone, and if you want to know where you can get your hands on one, here’s everything you need to know.
ASUS ROG Phone
After ASUS showed the world what a proper, balls-to-the-wall gaming smartphone could look like — and the generally positive reception it received — it looks like Huawei’s eager to grab their own slice of this fresh new pie. Today, the company — who is also the third largest smartphone maker in the world — revealed to us that they will be launching their very own gaming smartphone later this year.
The first thing you think of when you see a smartphone from the ASUS Republic of Gamers — aptly named the ROG Phone — would probably be somewhere along the lines of “Oh this must only be for hardcore gamers”. And while that’s true to a certain extent, I believe that this gaming-grade mobile device isn’t just for hardcore gamers.
It’s for everyone.
When you think “gaming phone”, you think of devices like the Razer Phone or the Xiaomi Black Shark, both of which have a pretty reasonable “gaming” identity about them. But now, after ASUS’ big ROG launch, there should only be one phone you think of when you think “gaming phone”.
That phone is the ASUS ROG Phone and it is absolutely bonkers.
If you think about mobile gaming, you probably expect a smartphone with great specs and a big battery. After years of making gaming laptops, ASUS has finally announced the ROG Phone. A radical smartphone for hardcore mobile gamers.
