ASUS ROG Ally 2 is ready to launch later this year

In an interview with Techlusive, Arnold Su revealed that ASUS plans to present a successor to ROG Ally this year.

ASUS launched the ROG Ally game console which debuted on the global market in May last year. The handheld gaming console segment is increasingly competitive with the Steam Deck, Lenovo Legion Go, Nintendo Switch, and MSI Claw recently announced. Now, on the sidelines of the ZenBook 14 OLED launch in India, ASUS VP Arnold Su has confirmed important details in an interview.

In an interview with Techlusive, Arnold Su revealed that ASUS plans to present a successor to ROG Ally this year. Reporting from Gizmochina (29/1), the Taiwanese company will most likely launch a second-generation offering. ASUS will continue to maintain Windows features and focus more on gaming, the executive quoted.

Su also said that ASUS sold around 70,000 to 80,000 ROG Ally units in less than a year since its launch. Buyers in India are largely early adopters of gaming consoles compared to developed markets that have high PC penetration rates.

The ASUS executive also shared other insights about gaming laptops that are increasingly gaining attention. It has surpassed the gaming desktop segment in India and globally. Hardcore gamers still prefer desktops but not casual gamers. ASUS is also expanding its manufacturing capabilities in India. The brand will start making gaming PCs in India from this year.

ASUS ROG Ally has a 7-inch FHD screen with a refresh rate of 120 Hz and a peak brightness of 500 nits. It is powered by an AMD Ryzen Z1 Extreme processor coupled with Radeon Navi3 graphics. The console packs 16 GB LPDDR5 RAM and 512 GB storage. This device is powered by a 40Wh battery with support for 65W fast charging.
