Asus ROG Phone late-October shipping date listed

Peter, 20 September 2018

The Asus ROG Phone was announced way back in early June and nearly four months later you still can’t buy one. That may finally change, if a GearBest listing is to be believed.

The site prices the phone at $1,320/€1,140 and claims that the shipping date will be between October 22 and 24. That’s the 8/128GB version, the 8/512GB model will cost $1,620/€1,400.

Those prices are higher than the €1,000 asked by Finland’s Telia (that was a pre-order with a free ROG Delta headphones, but it has since disappeared). The carrier claimed that shipments will start in mid-September, but that obviously didn’t pan out. There was talk of a September launch in India as well, which didn't happen either.

The phone promises a 90Hz AMOLED screen, a binned Snapdragon 845 chipset (for higher clock speeds), dual USB-C port (for accessories), virtual trigger keys, 4,000mAh battery and many other cool features (including an RGB-backlit logo on the back, of course). Which all sounds great, but for now it’s as real as Big Foot.

True. But its a slow phone, now that we have the Apple A11-Bionic, let alone the new A12, Huawei Kirin 980, and the soon to be released Qualcomm Snapdragon (855 ?) and Samsung Exynos (9910 ?). So while I agree the RoG is a phenomenal phone for...
