Asus ROG India has issued an open letter to its fans expressing regret that they may face difficulty in buying this OEM's latest gaming phone. This "temporary shortage" is associated with the coronavirus outbreak in Asia, which is currently disrupting the relevant supply chains in the region. However, Asus is confident that its mobile-device stock levels will be back up "soon".

Asus ROG's Indian division has released a Tweet containing an open letter to fans of its second-generation gaming phone. This message serves as a notification that the device in question may not be available to buy in the country. However, it also thanks the same potential customers for their patience in waiting to purchase the same.

This ROG Phone II drought is being attributed to the "prevailing situation" affecting the OEM's supply chain in the greater Asian region. By this, Asus presumably means the coronavirus outbreak currently thought to have originated in the Wuhan province of China. The resulting illness has already claimed several lives and has led to responses that include shop closure and co-operation to provide medical services across big tech in the area.

Asus' 2019 gaming phone remains in stock on Flipkart at the moment, but only in its 8GB/128GB form (correct at time of writing). Its top-end 12GB RAM variants, however, are out of stock on this platform at least. However, its maker believes that it will return to availability here "soon".

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
