It’s almost the end of October, and you know what that means… ESGS is upon us! ESGS 2018 promises to be another weekend full of esports and gaming action; but this year, the convention will also host the official PH launch of the ROG Phone!
Announced last June at Computex, the ROG Phone is packed with a multitude of features that are sure to excite avid mobile gamers. Though with its plethora of features tailored for gaming, we expect the phone to make a bit of a dent on the wallet.
Ahead of its PH release, ASUS launched the phone in other markets such as Malaysia, where its price was revealed to be Rm 3,499 for the base 128 GB model. RM 3,499 in pesos is around PHP 45,300, which is a rather competitive price point (if that is the PH price).
Though the ROG Phone might be priced a bit higher than that here. A report by TipsGeeks stated that the phone’s price may have been leaked by a local ASUS kiosk FB page. The leak said that the ROG Phone 128 GB will have an SRP of PHP 49,995.
If the leak is true, we still believe that the ROG Phone is a good deal, especially compared to other flagship phones that are well over 50 grand (looking at you iPhone XS). Plus, the ROG Phone will also come with an aeroactive cooler, a hard case, and other freebies (if the leak turns out to be true).
What do you think? Will the ROG Phone be priced at PHP 49,995? If yes, then do you think it’s a good deal? Sound off on the comments below!
