To some, balik kampung trips can be a bore – we’re not saying you shouldn’t spend time with your relatives this festive period, but sometimes you have hours on end before anything interesting happens like gatherings or open houses.

In times of desperation, many turn to mobile games – and if you’re looking for something that handle the heaviest of mobile games, the ASUS ROG Phone will receive a RM1,000 discount in conjunction with this Hari Raya Aidilfitri.

Starting from June 5, the ROG Phone 8GB+128GB will be available for RM2,499 (RSP RM3,499); while the range-topper 8GB+512GB variant will be priced at RM2,999 (RSP RM3,999). Each purchase will get you a free ROG GameVice, which are game pad attachments for your ROG Phone.

To recap, the ROG Phone features a 6-inch display with 90Hz refresh rate, pushing 1080p resolution. The phone is equipped with a Snapdragon 845 chipset with the Adreno 630 GPU – not the newest chipset in the market, but it’s more than capable of running the most graphically-intensive games.

At the back is a dual-camera setup (12MP main + 8MP ultrawide). The front camera is a 8MP shooter. The phone has dual-front-facing speakers as well as a 3.5mm headphone jack. The phone can be unlocked via a back-mounted fingerprint sensor.

What makes the ROG Phone a gaming device is the Air Triggers on the edges of the phone that allows users to shoot by tapping them. The phone is powered with a 4,000mAh battery and charges via USB-C.

You can purchase the phone on ASUS’ official Shopee page here as well as at licenced dealers.
