The 8GB/128GB Asus ROG Phone 2 Comes to Malaysia; Attractive RM 2499 Price Tag

The Asus ROG Phone 2 is, for the most part, the ROG Phone with every aspect improved from aesthetics to spec sheet. It’s literally the recipe of what a good gaming smartphone should be, as long as you’re willing to sacrifice very negligible issues.

Just when we thought we’d pretty much will only have the 512GB and 1TB variants available to us in the market, the ROG Phone 2 will now enter the Malaysian market with an entry level variant, giving end users access to an ultra-powerful gaming smartphone with 8GB RAM + 128GB internal storage. 

As much as we can assume that this is the Tencent Edition, I’m going to stop you right there. It isn’t. Included in this package is the AeroActive Cooler, Aero skeleton case, 30W charging brick and USB Type-C to USB-C cable, which are not part of the Tencent Edition. Obviously on top of that would be local Malaysian warranty coverage.  

RM 2499, available now

The 8GB + 128GB ROG Phone 2 can be yours for a fetching RM 2499, just a small difference of a few hundred ringgit compared to purchasing the Tencent Edition via grey importers. It’s worth it for peace of mind, seriously. You’d be stuck with unnecessary inconvenience when your Tencent Edition goes ham.
