Earlier this year, Asus showcased the new ROG Phone 5S, but alas, one important detail was missing...until now that is.

Reportedly, the Asu ROG Phone 5S has finally got a European price and according to The Verge looks to be coming in at €999 for 12GB of RAM with 512GB of storage for the 'standard model.

If you want to shell out a bit more, you can get the step up, which comes in at €1,099 and gets you a substantial 16GB of RAM and 512GB of storage again.

Of course, there's also the question of the Asus ROG Phone 5S Pro, which has a whopping 18GB of RAM and will reportedly retail for €1,299.

According to Asus.com, the Asus ROG Phone 5S 16GB version will be £999, with the mammoth 18GB version coming in at £1099, both of which appear to be available to pre-order in the UK with an ETA of early December, according to the site.

It packs the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 888+ processor and has a staggeringly responsive 360 Hz native touch-sampling rate.

It also features a 144hz 1m display for super-smooth gameplay, and a decent-sized 6000mAh battery too.

There's also the inclusion of AirTrigger 5 game controls, making it a winner for battle royals and racing games.

It's also got an impressive triple-rear camera with massive 64-megapixel main sensors.

Asus Rog Phone 5S Release Date

The Asus Rog Phone 5S release date is far from a one size fits all situation.

For instance, Tech Advisor reported back in August that the Asus ROG Phone 5s and 5s Pro both hit the shelves on 24 August 2021, but only in Taiwan.

As for Europe and the UK, the information as it stands is still a little murky with Europe, but as mentioned, it does look like you can pre-order now in the UK for an ETA of early December according to the Asus site.

We haven't heard anything on the US just yet, so we're unsure as to whether it'll be making its way over or not in the future.

We'll keep you posted when we hear more!
