Asus ROG Phone 2 price in India, availability details

The Asus ROG Phone 2 price in India has been hiked to Rs. 39,999 from Rs. 37,999.

The new pricing is notably provided for the 8GB RAM + 128GB storage option only. However, there are no details about the 12GB RAM + 512GB storage variant that was launched at Rs. 59,999 and went on sale for the first time in December.
