Asus now stocks the ROG Phone 3 on its US website
The ROG Phone 3 is arguably one of the most powerful Android smartphones of 2020, as well as possibly the most gameresque. However, Asus fans in the US may have been disappointed to learn their market was not involved in its original launch. This discrepancy has been reportedly linked to delays in getting its 5G connectivity approved by the FCC.
However, those wrinkles had been subsequently ironed out, leading to the release of this 144Hz display phone onto its maker's US web-store. It comes with a few accessories free in the box: its Aero Case, an odd hybrid between a bumper and a full case; and the Aero Active Cooler, which clips onto the ROG Phone 3's rear panel to keep it running during extensive sessons.
However, other accessories such as its purpose-built Kunai controller and dual-screen TwinView Dock are separate buys (at US$149.99 and $329.99 respectively). However, first-party accessories made for the flagship's predecessor are also rated to fit this phone.
As for the ROG Phone 3 itself, it starts at $999.99 for a 12GB RAM/512GB internal storage SKU. However, oddly, its 16/512GB top-end configuration is only $100 more. Then again, the former is available from now, whereas the latter can only be pre-ordered at present for shipping from October 8, 2020.
