Pre-order ASUS' ROG gaming phone on October 18th

The Asus ROG Phone launches in the US October 18th for $899

There has been some news about both of these companies releasing successors to these devices but ASUS and its ROG Phone has been in the works for a while.

A NY event on October 18 was teased Thursday on Asus North America's Twitter page showing the back of the ROG Phone.

The ROG Phone is powered by a 2.96GHz Snapdragon 845 chip as well as "gaming-optimized" Adreno 630 graphics chip.

The gaming phone market is quite small but it's one of those nitches that could easily catch on if given the proper attention. In Q4 2018, Asus will also launch a range of gaming-oriented accessories, including the $229.99 Mobile Desktop Dock, which lets you connect the phone to an external 4K monitor as well as mouse and keyboard. Accessories will be available starting this quarter as well. The update is for model ZS600KL, which is indeed the unreleased ROG Phone. It does, however, have a few more tricks that make it a mobile gaming machine. The TwinView Dock adds a second screen to the phone, and that will cost $400. As well as a 6-inch AMOLED (2160 x 1080) auxiliary screen that's great for split-screen live-streaming, extended game display or group communication, it packs a front-facing quad-speaker system, two extra physical trigger buttons, dual-haptic force-feedback engine, an enhanced cooling system and a high-capacity 6000mAh extended battery pack. The ROG Gamevice Controller will be available for $89.99, and the ROG WiGig Dock will set you back $329.99. There's also a network port for fast, stable wired internet connections. The ASUS Professional Dock is available for $199.99 United States dollars. It protects the entire phone, without hindering charging or access to the exclusive AirTriggers.

Meanwhile, the ASUS Professional Dock will allow you to connect the ROG Phone to a big screen TV or monitor, with an onboard Gigabit Ethernet port.
