Asus says U.S. consumers will be able to pre-order the ROG phone starting October 18.

The ROG Phone is a dedicated gaming device. It has an overclocked Snapdragon 845 processor, 8 GB of RAM, and an Adreno 630 GPU. Asus gave the phone a vented copper cooling panel in order to control thermals.

The ROG has a 6-inch, full HD+ AMOLED screen with a 90 Hz refresh rate, as well as a 10,000:1 contrast ratio, and a discrete imaging chip for HDR playback.

Other features include 24-bit stereo speakers, DTS Headphone with 7.1 virtual surround, a 4,000mAh battery, and a 12-megapixel camera.

The device will cost $899 for the 128 GB version and $1,099 for the 512 GB version. Asus also announced pricing details for the ROG Phone’s myriad accessories. The Mobile Desk Dock will cost $230, the TwinView Dock will cost $400, the Gamevice Controller will cost $90, the Professional Dock will cost $330, and the ROG Phone Case will cost $60.

Asus is giving fans of ROG a chance to score a free case. The first 50 people who pre-order the phone from Amazon or Microsoft will earn a free case, as will the first 25 people who pre-order the phone from Asus.

People will be able to see the phone at a public launch event to be held October 18 in New York City. Asus said the accessories will ship later in the fourth quarter, but didn’t say when the ROG Phone itself will reach consumers
