The mysterious Asus ROG Ally handheld hasn’t seen much press lately, but the price and release date may have just been leaked.
Thanks to Tech Radar‘s recent find, we now may have a better idea as to the price and storage size of the Asus ROG Ally. The info comes from an unlikely place, a leaked product page spotted by a tech journalist.
Khumail Thakur, who is supposedly the reviews editor for Stuff India, posted an image that alleges to show a leaked product page on Best Buy. The Asus ROG Ally’s 512GB model will retail for $699 if Thakur’s info is correct. The unit will also ship out starting on June 13th.
In case Thankur’s tweet does now show up, it says the following:
Best Buy product page leaked the price of the Asus ROG Ally. It will be priced at $699 dollars for the 16GB/512GB variant.

This price tag puts it $50 higher than the 512GB Steam Deck. However, this means you’ll also probably get the newer AMD Zen 4 chip for that price.
The ROG Ally was announced on April 1st, and Asus had to reiterate to skeptics that this wasn’t an April Fool’s joke. The handheld gaming platform will act similarly to Valve’s Steam Deck but will be exclusively sold through Best Buy.
So far, we’ve yet to see official specs. The best we could find was details found in Dave2D‘s hands-on video with the ROG Ally.
I’ve been using an Asus gaming laptop for the past two years and found it to be a steady bet once you remove the Armory Crate, of course. Seriously. That program caused way too many issues, including locking up the Windows on startup, and negatively impacted performance.
