ASUS ROG Phone to Arrive in the Philippines on October 28!

In a year where gaming-centric phones suddenly became a thing, leave it to ASUS to bring their A-game. Not only did they design one of the best gaming phones out there, but they also came out with a whole slew of accessories to go with it!

Of course, up until now, we haven’t known when it will actually reach Philippine shores. And the timing of it couldn’t have been better. The ASUS ROG phone is set to launch on October 28, otherwise known as the last day of the E-Sports and Gaming Summit at the SMX Convention Center, SM MOA. Until then, it’s just a guess what the price will be and if the entire selection of accessories will be available right from launch.

About The Author

Back when I started MobileTechPinoy in 2012, phablets weren't a thing yet. I enjoyed the stares I got from iPhone owners whenever I whipped out my Samsung Galaxy Note at the time. I'm much more budget-conscious these days though and am perfectly fine with using phones from any of our locally brands.
