Speaking about the partnership, Dinesh Sharma, Head, Mobile Business, ASUS India, said: “Republic of Gamers is more than a gaming device brand, it’s a strong community of gamers. ROG Phones are designed to provide the most cutting edge technology for smartphone gaming and are most apt for a competitive and demanding esport environment. The feedback from top gamers are key inputs fed into the design of Asus ROG Phones. It’s a strong symbiotic relationship.
Partnering with Entity Gaming, we bring the most powerful gaming smartphone to a top Indian mobile esports team to compete more effectively and win at the national and international level. We want to leverage this partnership to identify and support budding esports talent in India with best in class smartphone gaming technology and training, creating new Indian esports stars in the process. Working with Entity, we aim to get direct feedback from the leading mobile esports players for future Asus ROG Phones design and development and add more made for India aspects to future Asus ROG Phones.”
Varun Bhavnani, Director of Entity Gaming, adds: “We realised that mobile esports will be game-changing early last year. We started scouting, training and investing in this space. Achievements followed. Today, they have manifested at greater heights. We are proud to announce that we are the first mobile esports team in India to be partnered with a smartphone brand which is also gamer first. ASUS ROG is a brand every gamer resonates with. They are pioneers in promoting and facilitating gaming and now competitive gaming. This strong partnership enables both brands to unlock a horizon of opportunities for this ever-growing mobile gaming community.”
