After months of waiting, the Asus ROG Phone finally received its stateside launch last night in New York City. The latest entry into the burgeoning gaming phone market is available for pre-order now from several U.S. retailers, including Amazon.

There are two storage variants of the Asus ROG Phone, both of which have the same specs otherwise. The entry model features 128GB of storage and is priced at $899, while the higher-end 512GB variant will sell for $1,099.

However, only the 128GB variant is available to pre-order now — the 512GB variant will start pre-orders in November.

The device features two USB Type-C ports (one on the bottom and one on the side for charging while you play), a 3.5mm headphone jack, and a vapor chamber cooling system.

The phone also comes with an external AeroActive Cooler, which helps keep the device even cooler during long sessions of play. Check out how it works below:
