Pre-orders are from October 28 to November 8, with units arriving in November, according to Asus.
The suite of ROG Phone accessories will also be coming to the Philippines:
TwinView dock station - P16,995
Asus WiGig display dock - P13,995
Mobile desktop dock - P9,995
GAMEVICE controller - P4,995
Professional dock - 4,495
ROG suitcase - P7,995
The TwinView dock station adds an extra screen to the experience, while the professional dock and WiGig display dock let you connect to an external screen in a wired and wireless manner, respectively. The GAMEVICE controller are two joysticks that seemingly transform the ROG Phone to a handheld console. Last but not the least, Asus is also offering a suitcase for the most hardcore ROG Phone user where one can put all the ROG accessories in.
The first 10 who pre-order will also get a chance to buy a special bundle which includes all of the accessories at P40,995, a price that's 30% less as opposed to buying each one independently.
The ROG Phone carries a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chip that's been speed-binned to a faster-than-standard 2.96GHz clock speed; 8GB of RAM; an Adreno 630 GPU; 4,000 mAh battery capacity; and a 6-inch 1080p AMOLED display running at 90Hz and a response time of 1ms. Also included in the package is an AeroActive Cooler accessory which provides extra cooling for the phone. – Rappler.com
