ROG Phone 2 Strix Edition launches alongside a bunch of promos

Product launch + promos



ASUS’ Republic of Gamers is having a blast this last week of February. From product announcements to promos, you don’t want to miss checking out what ROG Philippines has in store for its customers.

ROG Phone 2 Strix Edition

ROG has officially launched the much-anticipated ROG Phone 2 Strix Edition last February 22. This gaming phone is a variant of the ROG Phone 2. ROG Phone 2 features a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855+ processor, a 120Hz display, and a monstrous 6,000 mAh battery. The Strix Edition is a slightly cheaper variant featuring an 8GB RAM + 128GB storage configuration.

ROG Phone 2 Strix Edition is now available on these concept stores nationwide. It retails at PhP 34,995. While that might seem inadequate for a gaming phone, ROG is also bundling in the Aero Case and the AeroActive Cooler II for free.

Welcome to the Big Leagues Promo

You can now also buy a ROG laptop with a bundled gaming monitor. This promo launched last February 22 bundles select laptops with a gaming monitor for the ultimate gaming experience. Participating laptops include:

  • Zephyrus S GX531GX — free ASUS VA326H worth PhP 23,560

Samsung offers 14-day trial program for the Galaxy S21 5G series

Full refund if you don’t like the phone



Galaxy S21

Samsung is feeling mighty confident about their latest flagship smartphones as they are offering a 14-day trial program for all members of the Galaxy S21 5G series.

How does it work? You’re gonna have to pony up and pay for the device in full. Pricing are as follows:

Galaxy S21 5G

  • 128GB — PhP 44,990
  • 256GB — PhP 47,990

Galaxy S21+ 5G

  • 128GB — PhP 54,990
  • 256GB — PhP 57,990

Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G

  • 128GB — PhP 66,990
  • 256GB — PhP 69,990

If after the 14 days you find yourself attached to the whatever Galaxy you come in contact with, then hurray, it’s yours to enjoy. However, if you come away unimpressed, you’re free to return the device given that it’s still in very good condition. You break it, it’s considered sold.

Samsung Galaxy S21 5G series

The Galaxy S21 series features a slightly altered look, improved cameras from a software standpoint, and a host of new features for video-taking. Something entirely new to the S series is the Galaxy S21 Ultra’s S Pen support — a feature previously reserved only for the Galaxy Note series.

The series will also remove charging bricks from the box — a move that Apple did and Samsung previously mocked.

The entire Galaxy S21 series also has UWB or Ultra Wide Band. It lets users point their phone at another Galaxy phone to send files. The feature set has been expanded to include unlocking your car with your phone.

Samsung is also launching an accessory called Smart Tags. These are trackers you can attach to your keys or your backpack. You can then use these to locate your items using the SmartThings Find App.
