Asus North America published a teaser on its twitter account this week that strongly suggests its flagship gaming phone will be sold in the U.S. The tweet contains a darkened image with what looks like the ROG phone in the background. It reads “Coming to New York” on October 18. Asus has yet to formally schedule a press event for that date. The ROG phone is a dedicated gaming device. It has an overclocked Snapdragon 845 processor, 8 GB of RAM, and an Adreno 630 GPU. Asus gave the phone a vented copper cooling panel in order to control thermals. The ROG has a 6-inch, full HD+ AMOLED screen with a 90 Hz refresh rate, as well as a 10,000:1 contrast ratio, and a discrete imaging chip for HDR playback. Other features include 24-bit stereo speakers, DTS Headphone with 7.1 virtual surround, a 4,000mAh battery, 12-megapixel camera, and support for a range of snap-on accessories. The phone is priced at over $1000 in other markets.
