Asus ROG Phone pre-orders begin, Italians get €100 credit for accessories

Peter, 19 October 2018

The Asus ROG Phone has two USB-C ports – the extra one is for accessories. And there are plenty of them. To that end, pre-ordering from Asus Italy between October 18 (today) and October 24, you’ll get €100 credit for accessories.

The phone itself is €900 for the 8/256GB version, you can see it here. The retail box comes with the AeroActive Cooler, so that’s a pretty good start.

You can pre-order the Asus ROG Phone in the US as well – from Microsoft of all places. It’s $900 for the 8/128GB model, $1,100 for 8/512GB. Here it is on Amazon too.

There’s more. The Gamevice adds hardware controls since not everyone is a fan of touchscreen gaming (there’s a wireless remote too, for some motion-controlled gaming). Alternatively, the TwinView Dock adds an extra 6” AMOLED display, two more speakers and two haptic feedback motors for some DS-like gaming.

The Mobile Desktop Dock and the Professional dock give you HDMI and gigabit Ethernet ports so you can harness the power of the overclocked Snapdragon 845 chipset for some desktop work. The Desktop Dock even offers DisplayPort!

Unfortunately, we don’t know the euro prices of these accessories yet, so we don’t know how far that €100 will get you.

Thanks for sending this in, Viano!
