Originally launched back in October 2019, new information has emerged that ASUS will be releasing a new variant of ROG Phone II into Malaysia this week. As opposed to previous units, this particular variant carries a much lower price tag.
Specifically, the third variant will be available for RM 2,499 according to the well-known retailer DirectD. As a comparison, the previously released ROG Phone II Elite Version and Ultimate Version cost RM 3,499 and RM 4,499 respectively.
According to the DirectD’s Facebook page, the new ROG Phone II variant carries 8GB of RAM and 128GB internal storage which is similar to the Tencent Edition that was only released in China. However, the listing on the retailer’s official website also stated that the new variant not only carries an official warranty from ASUS Malaysia but the inclusion of several items that were not part of the Tencent Edition.
They include AeroActive Cooler, AeroCase, 30W power adapter, and USB-C to USB-C cable. Since DirectD’s listing stated that the ROG Phone II 128GB will be available at its stores starting from 10 January onwards, expect the gaming phone to pop up at more retailers very soon.
