Asus ROG is a name very familiar to PC gamers. It should be no surprise that the first gaming smartphone from Asus to bear the ROG brand should be an absolute powerhouse. It should also be no surprise that it won't come cheap -- it has just gone up for pre-order in Finland and will retail for an eye-watering 999 EUR.

Like most major high-end Android devices currently hitting the market, it is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845. However, not only is the CPU mated to a generous 8GB of RAM, but it also features a vapor cooling system that will help to maximize system performance under intense loads expected by serious mobile gamers. The display, too, features a high 90Hz refresh rate and a whopping 6.8-inch FHD+ AMOLED display.

Further customizations tailored for gamers include the incorporation of flashy LED lights into the body of the design as well as ultrasonic ‘air triggers’ along the top edge of the device that will be welcomed by fans of FPS games. There is also a secondary side-located USB-C port that gamers can charge the device while gaming at the same time without the cords getting in the way of the action.

The official word from Asus about when the ROG Phone will actually ship isn’t yet forthcoming, although we expect to see it in customers hands by the middle of next month. It may not be too late to start saving up the cash for bragging rights!

I have been writing about consumer technology over the past ten years, previously with the former MacNN and Electronista, and now Notebookcheck since 2017. My first computer was an Apple ][c and this sparked a passion for Apple, but also technology in general. In the past decade, I’ve become increasingly platform agnostic and love to get my hands on and explore as much technology as I can get my hand on. Whether it is Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, Linux, Nintendo, Xbox, or PlayStation, each has plenty to offer and has given me great joy exploring them all. I was drawn to writing about tech because I love learning about the latest devices and also sharing whatever insights my experience can bring to the site and its readership.
