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.
While I’ve seen this phone multiple times over the year, I never got to see the final retail unit nor did I get to see the final retail box. And boy was I not prepared for it. I mean, I’ve seen some fancy boxes before — the original Mi MIX comes to mind — but the thing I loved about the ROG Phone one was just how much it oozed “gaming”, yet managed to not be incredibly garish at the same time.
To say that we’ve waited a long time for the ASUS ROG Phone is a bit of an understatement. But, there is finally more good news as ASUS Malaysia will be receiving pre-orders for their brand new gaming smartphone tomorrow!
The only catch is that it’s a blind pre-order.
ASUS’s ultimate gaming smartphone, the ROG Phone is officially coming to Malaysia very soon. The local launch event is taking place on 22 October 2018 which is just two weeks from now.
UPDATE: DirectD has clarified that the base model comes with 128GB, not 256GB storage as indicated earlier.
Asus Malaysia is launching the ROG Phone in Malaysia very soon. To secure your unit with official local warranty early, retailer DirectD is now accepting pre-orders for the gaming device which will come in either 128GB or 512GB of storage.
If you’re looking for the ultimate gaming smartphone, the ASUS ROG Phone should be on top of your list. For those who can’t wait for its official release, you can get it now in Malaysia and this is the range topping model with 8GB of RAM and 512GB of storage.
I don’t know if you remember, but ASUS debuted something really interesting earlier this year when they launched the brand new ZenBook Pro. I mean, they put a 5.5-inch Full HD display right where the touchpad was and I really liked it. It certainly seemed like a more practical approach than something like TouchBar.
Still, I get that that might be a little over the top for some. But, I do think ASUS was onto something when they turned to the touchpad as their next point of innovation. And it looks like they did too, because they’ve started tweaking even the touchpads on their more consumer-friendly ZenBooks.
In conjunction with the upcoming 9.9 Super Sale on Lazada, ASUS is once again offering a promotion on two of their prominent devices, which is the flagship Zenfone 5z and the ASUS Zenfone Max Pro. If you are looking for a smartphone that won’t cost you a fortune, make sure you keep an eye out for them on Lazada this Sunday.
ASUS is currently having a promotion for their flagship Zenfone 5z. However, if that is out of your reach, you can consider purchasing the Zenfone Max Pro, which is available at RM799 tomorrow (28th August 2018).
If you’ve missed last week’s promotion on the flagship ASUS Zenfone 5z, you are in luck. ASUS is now offering RM200 off on the device, similar to its first flash sale held last month.
