When I saw the courier dragging a luggage bag, I thought he had a lot of orders to deliver. But actually, the luggage was for me. This is the ROG Phone II Super Pack retailing at S$1,298.
This is what the inside looks like: packed with accessories designed for one smartphone.
Here are the items:
ROG II Kunai Gamepad S$159
This consists of 3 modular components – the ROG Kunai Bumper, ROG Kunai Controllers and ROG Kunai Holder. With this, there are several ways to set up and play, and you can connect either by Bluetooth, USB wireless dongle, or USB-C direct cable.
Twinview Dock II S$399
This is a dock that lets you play games in dual screen. The built-in 6.6-inch touchscreen has similar premium specs as the smartphone: 120Hz, 1ms, 5000mAh, cooling fan.
Mobile Desktop Dock S$199 and WiGig Display Dock S$339
The Mobile Desktop Dock lets you connect the phone by cables to an external display. It comes with generous connectivity docks like HDMI, USB 3.1, USB-C, Gigabit LAN, SD card slot, S/PDIF, 3.5mm jacks, etc.
The WiGig Display Dock lets you connect the phone wirelessly to a TV through Qualcomm 11ad 60GHz Wi-fi technology with near zero latency (below 20ms). The bundled USB-to-LAN adapter allows you to connect to a wired LAN.
ROG Lightning Armour Case S$59
The case protects the phone and the logo lights up through the phone rear LED.
ROG Suitcase and Phone Bag S$49
The messenger bag lets you store all the phone accessories neatly. And the suitcase is just an elaborate carrier for all the accessories.
All the accessories will cost S$1204 if you buy them individually. The ROG suitcase is not available for individual sale, but a similar model from last year is retailing at S$269.
ROG Phone II (ZS660KL) S$1598
This is the reason why all of the above exists. The package comes in an elaborate hexagon box.
There are compartments on three of the sides, where you will find the phone, the cable and casing, and the AeroActive Cooler II attachment.
Here’s another look at the ROG Phone II. It feels impressively good to hold with curved edges that contours with the palm.
This will be my primary phone over the next few days. Watch out for the final detailed review in 2 week’s time!
