New 17-inch foldable OLED screen laptop by Asus Is releasing this coming year
Every year, it appears that more firms are attempting out folding displays in their devices. In the PC sector, however, outcomes have been… varied. Asus is known for its uniquely unusual activities, particularly when it comes to monitors. So it’s only a question of time before the firm tries one of these, and we’ve FINALLY gotten our first peek. Meet the Zenbook 17 Fold OLED, a 17.3-inch laptop with a foldable OLED screen. For those looking for a more traditional laptop, there will be a clamshell Zenbook 14 OLED later this year.
The main advantage of a foldable gadget (apart from the fact that it looks fantastic) is that it makes larger screens more readily available in handbags and backpacks. Regardless of how thin or light a 17-inch tablet is, many people may find it difficult to carry around. There are additional ways to use a foldable gadget like this — unfold it and utilize it like a conventional tablet, prop it up with a kickstand, or fold it sideways at a 90-degree angle to use it as a tiny clamshell.
What I liked about Lenovo’s ThinkPad X1 Fold was that it allowed me to do this. I really loved being able to change the device’s settings depending on my activity and where I was sitting. Because of the small screen, that gadget, in clamshell mode, was difficult to use (it had only a 13.3-inch. By default, the Zenbook 17 Fold should solve that problem: it’s a 4:3 17.3-inch when opened and a 3:2 12.3-inch in clamshell mode. That also leaves more room for a larger keyboard; my other major complaint about the X1 Fold was that the keyboard was uncomfortably cramped. (The Zenbook Fold’s is bundled with the device and has 1.4mm of travel.)
Asus Zenbook 17 Fold OLED specifications
The Zenbook comes with Intel Core i7 U-Series processors and up to 16GB of RAM and 1TB of storage on the inside. It includes ASUS’ “ScreenXpert 2” software (also available on its current dual-screen devices) to help you split the screen and arrange its contents more easily.
Battery life is another issue with thin, high-resolution devices (the Fold is 2560 x 1920). All those pixels need to be fed, and a smaller gadget has less room for a big brick. The X1 Fold did not last very long. The Zenbook 17, on the other hand, comes with a 75Wh battery (which is bigger than what may 13-inch thin and light laptops have). Asus hasn’t revealed a battery life prediction yet, but that’s a promising spec.
In Q2 2022, the Zenbook 17 Fold OLED will go on sale with a price to be announced at a later date. (I’m guessing it’ll be pricey..)
Asus announced a few more OLED Zenbooks this week, including the Zenbook 14 OLED. This is a traditional clamshell 14-inch laptop that might be used as a daily driver for either work or school. It is available in some cool colors.(depending on which processor you choose), including Aqua Celadon, Ponder Blue, and Jade Black, with a lid inspired by “traditional Japanese craftsmanship.”
The Zenbook’s 16:10, 2.8K, 90Hz display is roomy (a refresh rate that’s becoming more common on OLED computers but is still uncommon). It has either a 12th Gen Intel Core i7 P-series processor or an AMD Ryzen 5000 chip. Asus claims that it will satisfy Intel’s Evo program requirements. (However, the battery life varies significantly from one product to another.),and the audio has been Harmon Kardon-certified, as well.
The Zenbook 14 OLED will not be released until Q2 2022, but pricing has yet to be determined.
