Asus ROG Flow X13 Tipped to Launch in India on 12th May: Specifications, Price
Asus ROG Flow X13 made its debut at the CES 2021 event that was held in January. Since then the laptop has gone on sale in a few countries around the globe. Now, according to a new report from Business Insider, it looks like the company is preparing to launch the ROG Flow X13 in the Indian market. According to the publication, Asus will launch the ROG Flow X13 in India on 12th May. A source close to the matter revealed the info, claims Business Insider.
The Asus ROG Flow X13 is a thin and light convertible laptop that also doubles up as a gaming machine. This is one of the very few laptops to combine the best of two worlds. The brand was able to achieve this feat by opting for an external GPU solution. Asus has developed XG Mobile external GPU, especially for the ROG Flow X13. It packs RTX 3080 graphics.
While the external GPU solution has been available in the market for quite a long time, it hasn’t become popular due to its high price tag. Plus, external GPUs are bulky and hard to carry around. The XG Mobile GPU, on the other hand, is very compact, and it can be carried around easily. This strategy is what sets the ROG Flow X13 apart from the crowd.
Asus ROG Flow X13 price in India (expected)
The ROG Flow X13 starts at $2,799 (approximately Rs 2,06,739) in the US market. Going by the price tag, you can expect ROG Flow X13 price in India to be above Rs 2,00,000 mark in the Indian market.
