Asus gaming smartphone ROG is all set to launch on September 23 in India, confirms the company. A teaser page for the smartphone is live on Flipkart indicating that the smartphone will be sold exclusively through the e-commerce portal.
Globally, Asus ROG 2 was unveiled in July and is already selling in some countries. The price in India is not yet confirmed and some estimates can be taken from the price in Europe, where Asus ROG Phone 2 costs EUR 899 (around Rs 71,500) for the standard edition and EUR 1,199 (around Rs 95,000) for the Ultimate Edition.
The gaming-centric smartphone is the first to be powered by Snapdragon 855+ processor, which reportedly offers a 15% increase in graphics as compared to Snapdragon 855. The advanced chipset is likely to be paired with a 12 GB RAM along with up to 512 GB of UFS 3.0 storage.
Another highlight of the ROG Phone 2 is its huge 6,000 mAh battery with support for 25W fast charging. In terms of display, the ROG Phone 2 has an upgraded 120 Hz 6.59-inch FHD+ display with 2,340 x 1,080 pixels and an in-display fingerprint scanner.
Asus ROG Phone 2 sports a dual rear camera set-up comprising a 48-megapixel primary camera and a 13-megapixel ultrawide camera. At the front, there is a 24-megapixel selfie shooter. Since it’s positioned as a gaming smartphone, Asus has equipped the ROG Phone 2 with dual front-facing stereo speakers with DTS: X Ultra support and ultrasonic air triggers. It also has a 3D cooling chamber with a vent to sustain peak performance.
