Vlad, 23 February 2024

Asus made the ROG Phone 8 and ROG Phone 8 Pro official last month, but so far the company hasn't announced availability details for the US. However, one of our enterprising readers reached out to Mobile Advance, an official Asus selling partner for the US, and inquired about the launch time frame.

Surprisingly or not, a Mobile Advance rep was quick to reveal the dates. As you can see from the screenshot below, courtesy of our reader, pre-orders for the ROG Phone 8 Pro in the US are currently set to start on February 29.

The phone will then be shipped at some point between March 11 and March 31. It's unclear if the same dates apply to the ROG Phone 8 or not. The ROG Phone 8 Pro will be priced at $1,199.99, while the ROG Phone 8 Pro Edition will retail for an eye-watering $1,499.99. This one comes with 24GB of RAM and 1TB of storage (compared to 16GB and 512GB, respectively, for the non-Edition Pro), as well as an AeroActive Cooler X and Aero Case bundled in the retail package.

The ROG Phone 8, on the other hand, will go for $1,099.99. If you're interested to learn more about the ROG Phone 8 and ROG Phone 8 Pro, don't miss our in-depth review.

Lol. Who’s gonna buy ‘em at those prices?

The ROG Phone 7 ranks as the best phone I've bought in a while. I'm looking for international cellular connectivity, battery life, music playback, storage, and reliability. I don't take photos on my cellphone so it doesn't bother...

Why buy this when the non-Pro is nearly identical except for some onboard storage and a little more RAM? Oh, and a slightly better LED on the back, lol. For a $400 difference, it's ridiculous to buy the Pro.
