Finally, the mad and much awaited ASUS ROG Phone is coming to the UK this Friday, November 16, and everyone who wants to get their hands on the phone first can pre-order now.
The ROG phone has started shipping to the UK on December 14 and should arrive very soon. It first made its debut in the United States this October, and luckily UK fans will get to enjoy this amazing phone, and we hope it will arrive in the rest of the world soon.
The Asus ROG Phone will retail in the UK for 799 pounds or US$1,021. But if you pre-order now, you can get 100 pounds off the base price bringing it down to 699 pounds or about US$893. Pre-ordering now is a no-brainer if you really want this phone.
Why own an ASUS ROG Phone?
The phone promises the best gaming experience that puts them the number one competitor of the Razer Phone 2.
Although the Razer Phone 2 may be equally powerful for gaming and penetrated the UK market earlier, its features are not solely for gaming. The phone also offers a good deal of day-to-day features which mean the Razer Phone 2 is not entirely a gaming phone, but a very powerful day-to-day smartphone.
If you’re a hardcore gamer who only want the best gaming experience, better stick to the ROG phone.
The ASUS device is packed with the latest hardware such as the Snapdragon 845 CPU at a 2.96GHz. This CPU has the highest clock speed you can ever find and specially selected and “speed-binned” for maximum performance.
This is enhanced by the Adreno 630 GPU, 8GB of RAM, and 128GB of built-in internal storage. The display is just the right size for gaming. It comes at 6-inches, 18:9, and most importantly, for an undisturbed and unobstructed gaming experience – notchless. The 90Hz AMOLED panel has an incredible 1ms response time, 108.6% DCI-P3 color gamut, and HDR.
The flagship also has dual rear cameras, a big 4000mAh battery, and dual nano SIM slots. It also includes two USB TYPE-C ports located at the bottom and on the side of the phone. Not sure if the phone handles dual charging while you play, but it looks like it.
Finally, it is equipped with a 3.5mm headphone jack and a vapor chamber cooling system that should prevent the phone from overheating when playing for countless hours.
The phone can function as a gaming laptop or PC. You can attach additional gamer-field bits to level up your game and take care of your phone as well. The ASUS ROG Phone has an external cooler, a desk dock to place your phone and convert it to a mini gaming PC, and a handheld additional 6-inch display that mimics the form and functionality of the Nintendo 3DS.
These accessories may not come with the whole package upon purchase though. You have to purchase them separately. ASUS has not yet announced the price and availability of the said accessories. We’re hoping it will have a pre-order discount as well.
Overall, it’s the most powerful gaming phone this 2018. So, if you really love to own an ASUS ROG Phone, don’t think twice today and grab the 100 pounds off opportunity.
