World's slimmest 13.3" OLED ultraportable laptop is the most eco-friendly Zenbook ever, with lightweight design, sustainability, and performance to deliver more with less.
ASUS today announced the exciting new Zenbook S 13 OLED (UX5304), the world's slimmest 13.3-inch OLED laptop at the media event that held at Marriott hotel. It's also the most eco-friendly Zenbook ever, and takes the brand's signature qualities of ultraportable design, sustainability, and on-the-go performance to a new level, proving conclusively that less can be more. With a world-beating super-slim 1 cm profile and a super-light 1 kg chassis, the sophisticated Zenbook S 13 OLED delivers no-compromise performance, connectivity and battery life, making it the epitome of ultraportable design, and finished in brand-new Basalt Gray or classic Ponder Blue. It's also designed with the environment and carbon neutrality firmly in mind, using recycled metals and plastics in its construction, FSCTM Mix-certified packaging, an elegant new eco-friendly plasma ceramic aluminum for the Basalt Gray model, and halogen-free electronics, to make this the most eco-friendly Zenbook model we've ever produced.
The Zenbook series excels at delivering unrivaled on-the-go performance, and Zenbook S 13 OLED is no exception, harnessing the power of up to 13th Gen Intel Core i7 processors with 32 GB of LPDDR5 RAM and a 1 TB PCIe® 4.0 x4 SSD. There's a full set of I/O ports for on-the-go connections, and a long-lasting 63 Wh battery.
For immersive true-to-life visuals, Zenbook S 13 OLED has a gorgeous 16:10 2.8K (2880 x 1800) ASUS Lumina OLED display that's Dolby Vision certified, with Pantone® Validated color rendering and VESA DisplayHDR™ True Black 500 certification, ensuring incredible detail and the deepest black levels.
At the event, Simplice Zaongo, Country Manager for ASUS English Speaking Africa, spoke about the new Zenbook S 13 OLED, he said “Stunning innovations like Zenbook S 13 OLED represent the pinnacle of the Incredible Comes from within Zenbook spirit. The entire Zenbook series is designed and built for those in pursuit of the incredible, defining new industry standards for portability, performance, and battery life, with stunning ASUS Lumina OLED displays.”
Super-slim and super-light
To achieve the super-slim 1 cm profile and super-light 1 kg weight of Zenbook S 13 OLED, several advanced techniques and materials are used in its design and construction to reduce the weight and dimensions compared to the previous generation, without compromising performance, connectivity or battery life.
- Display layer infusion: To achieve the incredibly slim profile, we've embedded a thinner yet fully featured FHD IR camera directly into the CNC-machined lid. We've also used a specially designed ultraslim OLED panel, resulting in a lid that's 30% slimmer.
- Optimized internal layout: By using precision CNC machining, we make more space available in the interior for components. We use circuit boards with fewer layers and a higher wiring density, with many more transistors, giving better performance with less weight in a more compact space. The motherboard is precision-engineered to house an additional, ultrathin fan that increases airflow for better cooling. This makes the lower part of the laptop about 25% slimmer.
- Materials choice: To minimize weight, durable and lightweight magnesium-aluminum alloy is used for the keyboard deck, formed with a CNC cutting process to create a rigid structure that doesn’t need any extra support. An extremely thin glass covering is used for the touchpad, resulting in a further 25% reduction in thickness in the keyboard deck.
The result is a class-defining ultraportable laptop that takes thin and light to a whole new level without compromises: it supports up to 14 hours of video streaming, while offering improved cooling and performance compared to its predecessor. And despite its world-beating compact dimensions, Zenbook S 13 OLED retains full usability and features a comprehensive set of standard I/O ports.
Performance on the go
The Intel Evo™-certified Zenbook S 13 OLED delivers the perfect blend of performance and portability, featuring up to a 13th Gen Intel Core i7 processor that can be boosted by 20% to a thermal design power (TDP) of up to 20 watts. This is supported by up to 32 GB of LPDDR5 RAM and an ultrafast 1 TB PCIe 4.0 x4 SSD, with a long-lasting high-capacity 63 Wh battery. WiFi 6E enhanced with ASUS WiFi Master Premium ensures fast, stable connections.
Even though it's ultra-compact, Zenbook S 13 OLED includes a full complement of I/O ports, so users don't need to carry dongles or adapters on their travels. The two ultrafast Thunderbolt™ 4 USB-C® ports support fast charging, 4K external displays, and up to 40 Gbps data transfers, and there's also a USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-A port, an HDMI® 2.1 port, and a 3.5 mm audio jack.
For enhanced video conferencing experiences on the go, the FHD IR camera includes AI-powered visual effects and AI noise-cancelation technology. It also supports fast and secure face login with Windows Hello. The powerful Harman Kardon-certified audio system with immersive Dolby Atmos® sound has a smart amplifier combined with ASUS Audio Booster technology to boost volume by up to 5.25X.
The 9.5%-larger ASUS ErgoSense touchpad allows easier navigation and is smooth, comfortable, and responsive, with an easy-to-clean anti-fingerprint coating
