After a long wait, the ASUS ROG Phone II is now available in the US. UU. As of today, you can purchase the unlocked phone on the ASUS and Mobile Advance website for $ 899.99. B&H will also start selling the phone on September 30, although you can book it today. It seems that Amazon will also carry the phone.
The model that is currently available in the US UU. It is the “Elite” edition that has 512 GB of internal storage and a Category 18 LTE modem capable of theoretical download speeds of 1.2Gbps. Later this year, ASUS plans to bring the “Ultimate” ROG Phone II edition to the United States as well. The frontline model features a faster Cat 20 LTE modem and 1 TB of storage. It also has a matte finish instead of a bright one. Both variants come with the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 855+ processor, 12GB of RAM, a 6.59-inch AMOLED display, a 120Hz battery and a 6,000mAh battery.
One thing to keep in mind about the ROG Phone II is that you only want to buy it if you are in AT&T, T-Mobile or an MVNO like MetroPCS and Cricket Wireless. Judging by the list of published 3G and LTE B&H bands, the phone is not compatible with CDMA networks such as Verizon (parent company of Engadget), Sprint and US Cellular. We contact ASUS to confirm, and we will update this article once the company responds.
