A couple of days back, we spotted the ASUS ROG phone on TENAA but we couldn’t lay our hands on the complete listing except the photos. The complete listing has now been spotted and it contains some interesting details.
First off, the ASUS ROG is listed with the model number ASUS Z01QD. The model has the same 2.96GHz clock speed as the one unveiled in Taiwan. That is, it features an overclocked Snapdragon 845 chipset. Perhaps, the most interesting aspect is the memory versions. The ROG appears on TENAA with three different RAM versions; 4GB, 6GB and 8GB RAM, whereas the gaming smartphone was unveiled in only 8GB RAM and 128/512GB storages. While the two storage options will be available across the board, buyers will get the option of deciding whether to go for the lesser 4GB RAM version or the high-end one with 8GB RAM. In addition, the model is listed with a slightly smaller 3850mAh battery which is lower than the 4000mAh battery on the model announced at COMPUTEX 2018 in June.
ASUS is yet to put the ROG gaming phone on sale and so, the price is still unknown but is rumoured to start at around $900. A 4GB RAM version brings the possibility of the phone being priced around $600 which would be relatively affordable than around $1000. We expect the flagship gaming phone to go on sale soon.
