Asus ROG Phone 2 is back on Flipkart with new increased price

Asus has once again resumed ROG Phone 2 sales on Flipkart after the pandemic lockdown break. The phone has come back in stock after months of unavailability. The smartphone was launched back in July 2019 at a starting price of Rs 37,999. Now when the sales have been resumed, Asus ROG Phone 2 price in India has been hiked by Rs 2,000 for the 8GB RAM model. It will not cost you Rs 39,999 instead of Rs 37,999.

Asus India notes that the price increase is due to the increase in the GST rates on mobile phones. Also, the US dollar price has increased against Indian rupee. Some of you might not know that Asus had also launched a 12GB RAM model of the same phone late last year. Priced at Rs 59,999, the 12GB Ram model of Asus ROG Phone 2 had gone on sale in December 2019 for the first time. The company has also increased the price of it to Rs 62,999, but the availability of the top-end variant isn’t known yet.

The gaming phone draws its power from a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855+ SoC. In the camera department, there is a 48-megapixel main camera and a 13-megapixel ultrawide camera at the back. On the front, you get a 24-megapixel shooter with f/2.2 aperture.

There is also support for 30W ROG HyperCharge as well as Quick Charge 4.0. On the ROG Phone 2, Asus has heat control systems on the inside as well as outside. It comes with vents that direct the heat from the vapor chamber to the external vents. Since the heat is redirected outside the phone, the company includes the second generation AeroActive Cooler II in the box. This drops the temperature of the exterior by up to five degrees.
