ASUS announced ZenBook Flip 13 (UX362) and ZenBook Flip 15 (UX562), the world’s most compact convertible 13.3-inch and 15.6-inch laptops.
Designed to be versatile, powerful and supremely portable, ZenBook Flip 13 and 15 are 10% smaller than the previous models and feature frameless NanoEdge displays with ultra-narrow bezels on all four sides and a 90% screen-to-body ratio that enables a much more compact chassis design.
The ZenBook series has a long-established tradition of design innovation, one that’s continued by these new models with the introduction of two brand-new features. Both models incorporate a world-facing camera, designed specifically for use with mixed-reality applications that allow users to interact with 3D virtual objects in the physical world. ZenBook Flip 13 also introduces the amazing new NumberPad, an innovative dual-function touchpad with a built-in LED-illuminated numeric keypad for fast data entry.
ZenBook Flip 15 and 13 are powered by the latest Intel® Core™ processors, and their touchscreen displays support an active stylus for easy and intuitive creative input. For the ultimate creative power, ZenBook Flip 15 adds high-performance discrete NVIDIA® graphics and a PANTONE® Validated display for accurate color rendering.
As well as allowing versatile usage modes, the unique any-position 360° ErgoLift hinge lifts and tilts the keyboard into a comfortable typing position when the laptop is opened. To ensure maximum reliability, the hinge mechanism is subjected to a 20,000-cycle open/close test. ZenBook 13 and 15 are also ultratough, meeting the ultra-demanding MIL-STD-810G standard for durability and reliability.
The world’s most compact convertible laptops
The all-new frameless NanoEdge design of ZenBook Flip 13 and 15 brings a whole new dimension to the viewing experience. The ultraslim bezels allow expansive and immersive visuals that are distraction-free, making work or play a true pleasure. The world-leading 90% screen-to-body ratio not only provides stunningly beautiful visuals, but gives the laptops ultra-compact dimensions so they have a footprint that’s 10% smaller than their predecessors — making them the world’s most compact convertible laptops.
Two brand-new innovative features are introduced with ZenBook Flip 13 and 15. ZenBook Flip 13 features the amazing new NumberPad — a novel solution to the lack of a dedicated numeric keypad on small laptops. In normal use, NumberPad is a large glass-covered Windows Precision Touchpad with multi-gesture support. A tap of the NumberPad icon on the touchpad turns it into an LED-illuminated keypad with a familiar layout for easy data entry.
Both ZenBook Flip 13 and 15 have an optional world-facing camera located next to the keyboard area. This is designed for use with the new Windows 10 mixed-reality application, Mixed-Reality Viewer. This allows users to blend their physical and virtual worlds for an amazing experience. With the laptop in tablet or tent mode, users can overlay virtual 3D objects on the real world image captured by the word-facing camera, move them around or zoom in and out, then capture the results in a photo.
ZenBook Flip 13 and 15 pack a real punch. They’re built using high-performance components, including the very latest version of the 8th Generation Intel® Core™ i7 processor — now faster than ever before — and up to 16GB of RAM. Lightning-fast PCIe® SSD storage means they boot up in just a few seconds, and apps load almost instantaneously.
Additionally, ZenBook Flip 15 uses up to the latest gaming-grade NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1050 Max-Q discrete graphics, with up to a PANTONE® Validated 4K UHD NanoEdge display that’s factory-calibrated for color accuracy. This display has built-in ASUS Calibration Technology for easy color calibration, and impressively low Delta-E values — under 3.0 on the FHD panel and under 2.0 on the 4K UHD version — for super-accurate colors, plus a wide 100% sRGB color gamut that makes it a dream for graphics professionals.
ZenBook Flip 15 is also available with a dual-storage option that gives users the best of both worlds: the blistering data speeds of an SSD and the large capacity of a hard disk drive (HDD).
Reliable 360° ErgoLift hinge and military-grade durability
ZenBook Flip 13 and 15 feature the unique 360° ErgoLift hinge design, which has a silky-smooth, stepless action that holds the display securely at any angle, allowing ZenBook Flip to be used in laptop, tablet, stand or tent modes — or anything in between — for the ultimate versatility. The precision-engineered, all-metal hinge mechanism is torture-tested with 20,000 open/close cycles to ensure outstanding long-term reliability. For typing comfort, the ErgoLift hinge simultaneously lifts and tilts the keyboard to a comfortable typing angle when the laptop is opened beyond 135°.
ZenBook Flip 13 and 15 meet the ultra-demanding MIL-STD-810G military standard for reliability and durability, undergoing a punishing test regime that includes extended tests for operation in harsh environments including extreme altitudes, temperatures and humidity. They have also passed ASUS internal laptop tests that far exceed the standards set by the industry.
