Asus already sells a line of gaming desktops, laptops, and smartphones under its Republic of Gamers (ROG) brand. What’s next? An Asus ROG tablet.

A few months ago Evan Blass posted a leaked picture of an unannounced Asus ROG Flow X13 tablet with built-in kickstand and a detachable keyboard. Now Asus has posted its own teaser a few days ahead of the 2022 Consumer Electronics Show, suggesting that an official launch is imminent. Update: The Asus ROG Flow X13 gaming tablet is now official.

While no specs are available yet, the tablet appears to have at least one USB-C port, one USB-A port, a headset jack, what looks like a microSD card reader or two (or maybe a SIM card slot). The top edge of the tablet also appears to have plenty of ventilation, hinting that the tablet will feature active cooling with a fan or two inside the case.

There’s also a proprietary port that will most likely allow you to connect an external graphics dock like the Asus XG Mobile, much the way you can with last year’s ROG Flow X13 thin and light gaming laptop.

While the teaser image posted by Asus doesn’t show a keyboard, the picture shared by Evan Blass earlier this year shows what looks like a Microsoft Surface Pro-style detachable keyboard which can be connected to the tablet magnetically.

We should know more in a few days – Asus has scheduled a ROG virtual launch event for January 4, 2022 at 11AM Pacific (2:00PM Eastern).

For what it’s worth, I’ve also found a few clues suggesting that other new products scheduled for introduction next week could include:

  • Next-gen Asus ROG Zephyrus G14 and G15 gaming laptops
  • Next-gen Asus ROG Zephyrus Duo dual-screen gaming laptop
  • Some sort of “Nebula” announcement related to gaming laptop displays

  1. Very cool! I love ASUS G14, plays all the games I love, really well. My only complaint is that it doesnt have a touch screen, I just shove it behind my 22″ touch screen and use it as a desktop.

  2. I wonder why they didn’t call it the RoG Mothership 2, because that’s basically what it is.

    I thought it was just the top part of the tablet. Something like them just showing the left, right and top parts of it. If so, then I wonder what’s on the bottom. Just something that looks like the bottom of a Surface?

    Anyway, I was hoping for them to enter the handheld market too. Too bad.
