For online shoppers, just visit the official ROG store on Lazada and Shopee. However, you will need to pay the full amount in advance via debit or credit card. And there’s no cash-on-delivery or COD option; after all, the ASUS ROG Phone is a high-ticket device.

Now, if you’re interested in the accessories announced at its global launch, don’t worry, ASUS Philippines is selling them in the country. Below are the prices for each of them:
