There is also a second screen controller, and a dock that transforms your smartphone into a computer. Lastly, there is also a WiGig Dock that lets you wirelessly stream games from the phone to a large TV.

The ROG Phone will be sold exclusively via Flipkart. The company has already mentioned that the smartphone will be competitively priced, especially after renewed interest with focus on India. The launch event kicks off today at 12:00PM, and the company is live streaming it on its YouTube channel.
