We reached out to Asus India for clarity on the sale date of both variants, and were informed that no next sale date has been announced yet. Asus also confirmed to Gadgets 360 that the release date seen on the Flipkart site is referring to the date the smartphone will ship, and not the next sale.

Sale offers on the Asus ROG Phone 2 include a 10 percent instant discount using ICICI and Axis Bank cards. The discount is notably available under Flipkart's Big Billion Days sale until October 4. Further, there are no-cost EMI options.

Alongside the ROG Phone 2, Asus last week launched some of its gaming-centric accessories. There is the TwinView Dock priced at Rs. 19,999, Mobile Desktop station at Rs. 12,999, and the ROG Kunai Gamepad at Rs. 9,999.

The 12GB RAM + 512GB storage variant of Asus ROG Phone 2 comes bundled with the 30W ROG Charger, though it will also be sold separately for the consumers purchasing the 8GB RAM + 128GB storage option. The 30W ROG Charger carries a price tag of Rs. 1,999.
