Being the flagship smartphone for the ROG lineup from ASUS, the handset has a lot of hype built around it.

ASUS ROG Phone specifications
To recap, the ASUS ROG Phone comes with a 6-inch full-HD+ display with 90Hz refresh rate and 1ms response time for blur-free visuals. Driving the performance is the octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, with Adreno 630 GPU and 8GB of RAM. ASUS offers the handset in two configurations – 128GB and 512GB. In the imaging department, the ROG Phone has been equipped with a 12-megapixel + 8-megapixel setup on the back and 8-megapixel snapper for selfies. The handset boots Android Oreo and is powered by a 4,000mAh battery. ASUS claims that the bundled ROG Phone power adapter supports ASUS HyperCharge, which is a direct-charge technology that delivers more power (up to 20W) for shorter and safer charge times.
ASUS had also launched TwinDock and Mobile Desktop Dock accessories for the ROG Phone. The former can turn the handset into twin display console and comes with four quad front-facing speakers, two physical trigger keys, a dual-haptic force-feedback engine, an enhanced cooling system as well as a 6,000mAh extended battery pack. The Mobile Desktop Dock, on the other hand, lets users connect the ROG Phone to an external 4K UHD monitor, mouse and keyboard. However, it’s unclear whether ASUS will launch these accessories in India.
