Asus ROG Phone 5 goes on pre-order in India: Specifications, price, offers
Asus launched the ROG Phone 5 series in India last month. The new lineup of smartphones has three devices, the ROG Phone 5, ROG Phone 5 Pro, and the ROG Phone 5 Ultimate.
At the launch event, the brand announced that these phones will go on sale in the country on April 15. Later on, the company changed its statement saying that the phones will rather go on pre-orders on the said date. Well, that isn’t going as planned either.
Instead of all the three devices going on pre-orders, only the ROG Phone 5 has been made available for pre-booking in the country. If you were planning to buy the device, here is everything you need to know about it.
