[PSA] Take caution - Tencent-branded Chinese models with "Global/International ROM"

CH_ASUS
Community Legend II
Hi all

We have come to notice there are resellers selling the so-called "Tencent ROG Phone II"-models for the Chinese market with "International ROM".

We would like to make clear that ASUS does not officially sell any Tencent-branded ROG Phone II with so called "International ROM" or "Global firmware".
We cannot guarantee the functionality of this combination , if you are facing any type of issues - please turn to your reseller where you bought this device - as this is is not a combination we are selling.

Please also take careful note that updates/FOTA functionality will be disabled since the ROM and the models dont match, some resellers note this in the fine-print.. some may not..

Extra info:
If you are seeing anything about a "Global ROM version" or "Tencent with Global/WW ROM" it would be a clear giveaway.

Amazon.com: ASUS ROG Phone 2 (ZS660KL) Smartphone 128GB ROM 8GB RAM Snapdragon 855 Plus 6000 mAh NFC...The only problem I have is the updating and reading the post I'm kinda mad because this wasn't made public for people know and I spent a lot of money getting this phone.

Like I said the only problem I'm facing is not being able to get updates.
And sadly I can't return it and for me that 2 Grand because my Country Currency is lower.

If I only knew about these things earlier I wouldn't have wasted my time.

if you clicked the ASUS link, it would have brought you to a ASUS Page of course the price would be higher but it is the international version and you would be happy with it.

I actually got it flashed and the original firmware is on it now, seems to be working fine.
Even when I use applock the notifications still comes in
