ASUS Republic of Gamers has been really quiet about their ambitious ROG Phone over the past few weeks, nobody knows the availability and price but one thing for sure is that Malaysians (and Phillipinos lol) are huge fans of it. Well, perhaps the time of waiting is coming to an end soon because our local distributor DirectD, has just released a teaser of the ROG Phone's arrival on their Facebook page.
Before you get too excited, DirectD didn't officially announce the availability and price just yet, but what we do know is that the two model variants of 128GB and the monstrous 512GB (UFS 2.1) internal storage are coming into the Malaysia market. Furthermore, there's a link given on the Facebook post about asking the customers if they would like to have a walk-in purchase selected DirectD stores or an online purchase from their official website.
Still, no word on the price but rumours have it that it could be quite affordable for a dedicated gaming smartphone. From our last post about the rumour, ASUS CEO Jerry Shen hinted that the ROG Phone cost slightly higher than the ZenFone 5Z which has not been released in Malaysia yet, but rumours have it that it could be RM2299 from earlier leaks. Given a benefit of a doubt, we are betting that it should cost around RM3K.
