When can I get my hands on the phone? You can't get any.
From what I recall the ROG 6 should be available in the coming 2 weeks in the EU.
each asus store in EU countries on different dates and lead time varies greatly depending on model and color, from immediately available to October 2022
Oktober.....Why was it presented on July 6 if they can't deliver it in a few weeks. This is ridiculous. Dates in October....Don't go there!
Completely normal. Most (not all) present this products weekends and sometimes 2-3 months before it's ever released. This to get pre-orders and build a huge around it.
Anything being presented and released within a month is considered quick
No better explanation
1- Marketing wants to be the 1st and imposes a date for the presentation, it even happens that it is with a prototype or a model.
2 - The manufacturer does market research for each country, launches a few pre-series, orders from subcontractors are not made en masse.
3 - the pre-orders and the return of the tests make it possible to analyze the assessments and finalize the sales forecasts for each product and country and therefore the delivery dates.
4 - the more high-end the material, the longer the delay between presentation and availability.
5 - This is only my opinion but Asus is bad on the launch period, a gaming smartphone available after the holidays, a powerful Rog 5 fan after the high temperature periods, a Backpack Clips for the ZF9 after the biggest period of hikes
