Earlier this year, ASUS announced the ROG Phone. For those unfamiliar, ROG is ASUS’ gaming lineup in which the branding was previously used for monitors and computers that were designated as a gaming product, which meant that the ROG Phone is basically the company’s own take on a gaming smartphone.

If the handset sounds like something you might be interested in, then you’ll be pleased and excited to learn that the phone will be making its way to the US and that come 18th of October, you’ll be able to pre-order it. The handset is priced starting at $899 which does make it one of the more expensive phones in the market today, but maybe its specs could change your mind.

The ROG Phone, for those who are learning about this for the first time, will feature a 6-inch 2160×1080 AMOLED display with a 90Hz refresh rate. Under the hood, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset can be found accompanied by 8GB of RAM, and a whopping 4,000mAh battery. The phone will also be packing dual rear-facing cameras at 12MP and 8MP, and an 8MP front-facing camera.

It is a powerful handset and its 90Hz refresh rate display does make it pretty compelling (although the Razer Phone’s 120Hz display is more enticing), but whether or not you think it is justifiable is up to you. Either way pre-orders will kick off later this month so you have a little over a week to think about it.
