After announcing the ROG Phone at Computex 2018, earlier this year, Asus is now bringing the smartphone to the Indian shores. The gaming-focused device features flagship hardware and special features built in to enhance the gaming experience, including air triggers for console-like control, multi-layer cooling, and two Type-C ports that allow fast charging.

Asus also unveiled a bunch of accessories to help you make the most of the gaming experience. These include an AeroActive Cooler to ensure that the thermal levels on your phone don’t spike up during long gaming sessions. 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.
