It feels like an eternity since the Asus ROG Phone was first announced at Computex. We’ve seen loads of phones since then, but it seems like the manufacturer is finally getting ready to launch the gaming-focused handset.
The company is holding an October 18 event in New York, according to an image posted by the Asus North America Twitter account. The background shows the ROG Phone, which all but confirms that the device will make an appearance at the event.

Hopefully, this is a U.S. or global launch event with price/release details rather than a hands-on event with no real information. After all, it’s been exactly four months since the phone was first announced, so we’re way overdue for a wider release.
The ROG Phone is shaping up to be an almighty gaming smartphone, offering an overclocked Snapdragon 845 chipset, 8GB of RAM, 128GB or 512GB of storage, a 4,000mAh battery, ultrasonic shoulder triggers, and two USB Type-C ports.
Asus is also offering a boat-load of peripherals for the new phone, including a Nintendo DS-style shell, a heat-sink accessory, and a dock.
