Not long ago, Asus unveiled the ROG Phone II, which was a successor to the popular ROG Phone, which was again, one of the first dedicated gaming devices to ditch the innovative features of the era which are no more than just gimmicks for most hardcore gamers.
The philosophy behind the ROG phones focus more on the elements that matter, and ones that make a phone a proper ‘gaming device’.
Now Asus has worked on the same philosophy for the ROG Phone II. The phone is even the first device to use the new snapdragon 855+ processor by Qualcomm. The phone has apparently become very successful ahead of the first flash sale on July 31.
Over 1.6 million people have already registered for the first sale. The main reason for this maybe that the phone is priced at only USD 510, which is not a lot considering the specs the phone brings with it.
However, the reduced price is due to Asus being helped by Tencent, the makers behind popular Battle-Royale title PUBG. Since Tencent helped build the ROG Phone II, the phone is likely to come with some bloat by the company.
You could alternatively get the non-Tencent version of the device too, but that would set you back by USD 900, which is much more than the previous option. The phone will likely launch in China by as early as next week, the phone will be internationally available around mid-August....
