Future ASUS ROG Gaming Phones to come with Google Stadia Built-In

  • Google Stadia will be pre-built on upcoming ASUS ROG phones until 2021, as per ASUS.
  • Google recently made Stadia accessible for users of several 120 Hz display phones, including the ASUS ROG Phone II, the Razer Phone 2, and the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S20 trio.
  • Google’s cloud-based gaming service has been off to a modest start with many criticizing the lack of essential features during its initial launch.

Google Stadia has been off to a not so great start over the past few months, although the company has made multiple adjustments to the service since its initial launch. But thanks to the service now being rolled out to non-Pixel devices, the company can hope to get some traction over the coming months. Today, a new revelation tells us how Google could spread the word about Stadia further in the coming months.

ASUS announced that every upcoming ROG phone from the company will come with Stadia built-in. ASUS specifies that this will be applicable to its 14 participating territories which currently include the following:

  • Belgium
  • Canada
  • Denmark
  • Finland
  • France
  • Germany
  • Ireland
  • Italy
  • Netherlands
  • Norway
  • Spain
  • Sweden
  • United Kingdom
  • United States

Given that ASUS has already launched the ROG Phone II not too long ago, this likely refers to a future phone by the company, possibly the ROG Phone III. Google’s recent wider Stadia rollout included phones with 120 Hz display rates like the Razer Phone 2 as well as the ASUS ROG Phone II.

It’s worth pointing out that almost every major tech giant is working on its own game streaming service. The field got even wider when Samsung announced during its Galaxy S20 launch event that it is working with Microsoft for a new cloud-based gaming service. NVIDIA’s GeForce Now has officially left the beta stage not too long ago while PlayStation Now is Sony’s response to the crowded cloud gaming space.
