Asus today announced the latest Zenbook S 13 OLED (UX5304), the world’s slimmest OLED ultralight laptop. 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.
Coming at only 1cm thick and weighing only 1kg, the Zenbook S 13 OLED delivers no-compromise performance, connectivity and battery life, 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, FSC Mix-certified packaging, an elegant new eco-friendly plasma ceramic aluminum for the Basalt Gray model, and halogen-free electronics.
ASUS Zenbook S13 OLED (UX5304): Super Slim & 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 without compromising performance, connectivity or battery life.
For starters, ASUS has embedded a thinner yet fully featured FHD IR camera directly into the CNC-machined lid. The company also used a specially designed ultraslim OLED panel, resulting in a lid that’s 30% slimmer.
By using precision CNC machining, ASUS managed to make more space available in the interior for components. The company also used 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.
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.
Performance on the Go
The Intel Evo-certified Zenbook S 13 OLED delivers 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 16 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-cancellation technology. It also supports fast and secure face login with Windows Hello. The Harman Kardon-certified audio system with Dolby Atmos sound has a smart amplifier combined with ASUS Audio Booster technology to boost volume by up to 5.25X.
ASUS Lumina OLED Display
The Zenbook S 13 OLED is equipped with a 16:10 ASUS Lumina OLED display. ASUS Lumina OLED displays feature exclusive ASUS technologies, such as ASUS Splendid and ASUS OLED Care, as well as new features like Delta E <1, power-saving, and panel protection.
With a resolution of 2.8K, a 0.2 millisecond response time and a color accuracy of Delta E <1, the ASUS Lumina OLED display on Zenbook S 13 OLED delivers clearer, brighter and more vivid colors. As well as offering Dolby Vision certification, the display is also DisplayHDR True Black 500-certified, and carries the Pantone Validated badge for industry-standard color fidelity. The cinema-grade 100% DCI-P3 color gamut delivers ultra vivid colors, and ASUS Splendid allows the user to easily switch between this gamut and sRGB, Display-P3 or the native OLED gamut.
The display is also certified for eye care by TÜV Rheinland and SGS with 70%-lower blue-light emissions, ensuring that the user’s eyes are comfortable for even during long viewing sessions. ASUS also provides free OLED screen exchange for any burn-in issues during the warranty period.
