ASUS has already sold out of the first batch of its new ROG Phone II gaming smartphone, selling its first run of 10,000 units during its first 73 seconds on sale in China.
JD.com received 2.5 million reservations for the ASUS ROG Phone II, so with just 10,000 sold it means ASUS has hundeds of thousands of potential customers just in China that want the phone, and couldn't get it. ASUS has even gone as far as apologizing for the lack of units, and that production staff are working around the clock to get more made.
ASUS promised that new ROG Phone II batches will drop on August 4, 7, and 12 -- at least in China. ASUS is using a large 6.6-inch FHD+ AMOLED display with a native 2340x1080 resolution and 120Hz refresh rate. Inside, we have the new cherry-picked Qualcomm Snapdragon 855+ chip at up to 2.96GHz, 12GB of LPDDR4X RAM, and 512GB of storage.
