Asus Zenbook 17 Fold OLED Foldable Screen Laptop Launches at CES 2022

 Foldable or foldable screen devices are still a trend in 2022. Asus also enlivened this trend by exhibiting the Zenbook 17 Fold OLED folding screen laptop at CES 2022.

As the name implies, this laptop offers a 17.3-inch wide OLED screen with a 4:3 ratio when fully open. When opened halfway, this laptop screen is divided in two with a stretch of 12.5 inches each and a 3:2 ratio.

When fully open, this laptop screen has a resolution of 2.5K (2,560 x 1,920 pixels) and changes to 1,920 x 1,080 pixels when half open. Asus says this laptop can be used in various modes, namely PC, laptop, tablet, on-screen keyboard, book, and extend.

Not only foldable, this screen also supports Dolby Vision HDR technology, has a 100% DCI-P3 color gamut, pocketed the Pantone Validated Display certification for color accuracy, as well as eye-care from TUV Rheinland.

Turning to the brain, Asus equips the Zenbook 17 Fold OLED with a 12th generation Intel Core i7 U-series processor. Its performance is supported by RAM up to 16GB and SSD up to 1TB.

This laptop also brings complementary features such as four certified speakers from Harman Kardon that support Dolby Atmos and an HD IR camera that can detect the user's presence and is integrated with Windows Hello. Additional accessories in the form of an Asus ErgoSense wireless keyboard and touchpad are also available.

To support a high-resolution jumbo screen which of course requires a lot of power, Asus has embedded a 75Wh battery in the Zenbook 17 Fold OLED. Asus did not reveal how durable this battery life.

This is not the first time a vendor has released a laptop with a folding screen design. At CES 2020, Lenovo launched the ThinkPad X1 Fold with a smaller screen size.

Asus will start selling the Zenbook 17 Fold OLED in the second quarter of the second year. It is not yet known how much it costs, but with this unique design and innovation, of course this laptop will be priced quite expensive.

In addition to the Zenbook 17 Fold OLED folding screen laptop, Asus has also introduced a new generation Zenbook 14 OLED laptop with a more conventional design. This ultra portable laptop comes in two luxurious color options, namely Aqua Celadon and Ponder Blue.

Zenbook 14 OLED is equipped with a 2.8K resolution screen with a 16:10 ratio and 90Hz refresh rate. This screen also has a high level of color reproduction with a 100% DCI-P3 color gamut and is certified by Pantone Validated Display, VESA DisplayHDR True Black 500, and eye-care from TUV Rheinland.

Asus offers Zenbook 14 OLED in two versions, namely those that carry the 12th generation Intel Core i7 P-series processor or AMD Ryzen 5000. This laptop is also equipped with up to 16GB of RAM and up to 1TB of SSD.

Asus will also launch the Zenbook 14X OLED Space Edition. The features and specifications are similar to its sibling, but the RAM can be boosted up to 32GB and the processor offered is only from Intel.

One of the most eye-catching features is the second 3.5-inch screen on the laptop's exterior that uses an OLED panel. This second screen can display various animations related to outer space.

There are also many space-inspired carvings around the laptop case. Including Morse code that reads the sentence in Latin, Ad Astra Per Aspera.

It is not yet known how much the Asus Zenbook 14 OLED and Zenbook 14X OLED Space Edition will cost. Both of these laptops will go on sale in the second half of 2022.
