ASUS Launching ROG Phone II On October 11


ASUS has finally put a local launch date on their latest gaming phone, the ROG Phone II.

The new phone has been out in China for a while now and has only recently started rolling out in countries like India a few days ago.

The demand for the new gaming phone has been overwhelming, and now we finally have a launch date for the gaming-focused phone: October 11.

There’s still no pricing yet for the ROG Phone II, though we expect it to fall anywhere from Php 45K to 50K for the top-tier 12GB RAM/512GB storage variant.

We’ve already reviewed this gaming beast from ASUS, and it’s pretty much the best gaming phone that’s been released this year.

You can tune in on the Livestream on ASUS’ local ROG Facebook page to see the details of the launch, including the pricing for the new device.
