ASUS UK and Ireland country manager Steven Hope told Mobile News that ASUS is looking to sell the phone with retailers next year and create a bigger brand awareness in the UK market.
“This launch is about announcing ourselves in the phone market in the UK where it is tough and saturated. We’re backed by the strong ROG brand when it comes to gaming.”
“Initially we’re aiming this phone at the gaming audience but we hope that it can filter out to the mass market as gaming becomes more popular on smartphones.”
