Asus ROG Phone 2 went out of stock a few days back due to the global pandemic. Asus promised its customers that their second-generation gaming smartphone will be back in supply soon, and now it has. Flipkart has got a fresh stock of the smartphone and the sales have started today on June 22, 2020. But the price of the device has been increased. This is because the Government of India increased the GST rates for smartphones from 12% to 18%. At the same time, the value of Indian Rupee has depreciated against the dollar significantly as well.
Asus ROG Phone 2 New Price
The Asus ROG Phone 2 new price after the new GST rates and currency depreciation should have been Rs 42,554 which is approximately 12% higher than its older price. But Asus has decided to sell it at a lower price point of Rs 39,999 saving their customers Rs 2,554. It is worthy to note that the smartphone was launched last year at a price of Rs 37,999. Asus has decided to absorb the Rs 2,554 as a gesture to appreciate all the love their fans have shown to the device. So the new effective price for the customers for this device will be Rs 39,999 which is Rs 2,000 more than its older price of Rs 37,999.
