Official Asus website page confirms the imminent launch of the ROG Phone 2 in the US
The Asus ROG Phone 2 was released back in July as the first device to feature the Snapdragon 855+. It has received plenty of praise for being one of the most complete devices on the market, at least on the hardware side of the fence. The gaming phone could be set to make its way to the US too, now.
The ROG Phone 2 has now been listed on the Asus US website, which makes it almost official that the device will be coming to the US after all. The "when" of the matter is the biggest question, though, as there's no information as to a possible release date.
The ROG Phone 2 features a 6.59-inch FHD+ 120 Hz AMOLED display. That's the first of its kind we've seen so far, so props to Asus for delivering on that end. The gaming phone features proper stereo speakers, a 3.5mm headphone jack, a Snapdragon 855+, UFS 3.0, in-display fingerprint reader, quad microphones, dual vibrators, a 48 MP + 13 MP dual rear camera setup, a 24 MP selfie shooter, and a massive 6000 mAh battery. You'd be hard-pressed to find a smartphone with better hardware right now.
The listed bands for the US model are bands: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 12, 13, 17, 18, 19, 20, 26, 28, 29, 32, 66. That ensures that most in the US will have decent LTE reception, with the possible exception of T-Mobile due to the missing Band 71 support.
