Today, ASUS Malaysia has finally unveiled the long-awaited ROG Phone into the Malaysia market. Coming in two variants of 128GB and 512GB, the price tags are RM3499 and RM3999 respectively. The gaming accessories are also available but will be on sale in November in its online store on Lazada and Shopee only, as well as ASUS Brand Stores around in Malaysia. Pre-order for the ROG Phone has begun today (22 October 2018) and will end on 4 November 2018.
Since its introduction in Computex 2018 this year, the ROG Phone hasn't changed much with the tech-specs featuring an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processors with the option to clock at 2.96GHz, 8GB of RAM, a Corning Gorilla Glass 6 6-inch AMOLED display, 4000mAh battery and more. It's also nice to know that the Malaysian package will have an Aeroactive Cooler accessory inside the box, which can be clipped onto the phone to give some extra cooling assistance. AirTriggers are also present to give mobile gamers the edge with extra controls.
The TUF Gaming laptops were also announced along with the ROG Phone today, starting from RM3699 (more on that in another news article)
