The other new models announced during the event were the 12th Generation Intel Core processor and AMD Ryzen 5000 series mobile processor versions of Zenbook 14 OLED (UX3402 / UM3402), powerful 14-inch thin and light laptops with a completely revamped and modern look featuring premium materials, fresh new colors and a new monogram logo.
Also announced were updated Zenbook models powered by 12th Generation Intel Core i9 H-series processors include Zenbook Pro Duo 15 OLED (UX582), a dual-display 15.6-inch laptop with a 14-inch tilting ASUS ScreenPad Plus. Zenbook 14X OLED (UX5400 / UX5401), a high-performance 16:10 14-inch ultraportable laptop featuring ASUS ScreenPad (UX5400 only) or NumberPad 2.0 (UX5401 only).
Zenbook 17 Fold OLED is the world’s first 17.3-inch foldable OLED laptop. This laptop comes with two sizes of OLED display in one device: a large 4:3, 17.3-inch, 2.5K touchscreen that folds in the middle to create two seamless 3:2, 12.5-inch, 1920 x 1280 displays. When folded fully closed along the precision-engineered 180° hinge, it is an ultra-compact and portable 12.5-inch device that is smaller than a sheet of photocopier paper. Multiple versatile usage modes — PC, Laptop, Tablet, On-Screen Keyboard, Book and Extend — are enabled by the folding design in conjunction with the full-size ASUS ErgoSense Bluetooth keyboard and touchpad, and the screen can additionally be split into multiple windows and the contents arranged, using the intelligent window-management feature in the ASUS ScreenXpert and exclusive Mode Switcher apps.
For immersive entertainment, PANTONE Validated, Dolby Vision HDR enabled foldable OLED touchscreen — which is also TÜV Rheinland certified for reducing harmful blue light and has a 100% DCI-P3 gamut — is accompanied with Dolby Atmos immersive audio and a powerful quad-speaker Harman Kardon-certified, Dolby Atmos sound system.
Zenbook 17 Fold OLED includes several smart AI-powered features, including user-presence detection using an HD IR camera; an integrated color sensor for automatic adjustment of screen brightness and color temperature; and a 5 MP webcam with ASUS 3D Noise Reduction (3DNR) technology for clearer video calls.
This laptop is powered by 12th Generation Intel Core i7 U-Series processors, Intel Iris Xe graphics, up to 16 GB RAM and a fast 1 TB PCIe 4.0 SSD. For connecting to peripherals there are two convenient USB-C Thunderbolt 4 ports, which support fast charging of the long-lasting 75 Wh battery, and connections to external displays. The new ASUS ErgoSense Bluetooth keyboard and touchpad ensures comfortable, accurate typing, with a desktop-grade 19.05 mm key pitch and a long 1.4 mm travel on the dished key caps.
Zenbook 17 Fold OLED will go on sale in the mid-year of 2022.
Zenbook 14X OLED Space Edition features unique space-themed design details on the lid and palm-rest area and finished in a special Zero-G Titanium color. Exclusive to the Space Edition is its futuristic ZenVision smart display, a 3.5-inch OLED companion display mounted externally on the lid. This can show customizable messages, themes and animations.
Built to withstand the rigors of space travel, the Space Edition complies with the ultra-demanding US Space Systems Command Standard SMC-S-016A testing protocols, so it is capable of withstanding extreme vibration which is 4 times more than standard Military Grade durability. Furthermore, it is able to operate in extreme climates, above and beyond the Military Grade capabilities. The Space Edition can resist and function in bitter cold conditions of – 24°C to blistering hot environments up to 61°C.
This out-of-this-world laptop is powered by up to 12th Generation Intel Core i9 H-series processors and Intel Iris Xe graphics, 32 GB RAM, a PCIe 4.0 x4 SSD, and WiFi 6E. The expansive 16:10 2.8K OLED 90Hz PANTONE Validated touchscreen delivers ultra-realistic DisplayHDR True Black 500-certified visuals, with a 100% DCI-P3 gamut and TÜV Rheinland-certified eye care.
