Asus ROG smartphone now available for pre-order at $900 USD
The vaunted Asus ROG gaming smartphone is finally ready to hit store shelves and Asus is celebrating today with an open launch event at the 5th avenue Microsoft store in New York.
Two SKUs will be made available with 128 GB or 512 GB of storage. While the former will retail for $900 USD, the latter will cost an additional $200 USD for a whopping $1100 USD. There appears to be no other differences in specifications between the two options.
The October 18 launch event is free and open to the public from 4:30 PM to 9:00 PM EDT. As with most launch events, there will likely be games, prizes, and giveaways for those in attendance. The Asus event comes one week following Razer's own press event on the Razer Phone 2 in San Jose.
