Superb performance
ZenBook 13 OLED harnesses the power of the latest 11th Generation Intel Core processors — all the way up to the Core i7 series.

They’re teamed with powerful new next-level Intel Iris Xe graphics for silky-smooth visual performance, and up to 16 GB of high-speed RAM to help users blitz through daily tasks.

The laptop also has some of the fastest solid-state storage available, with up to 1 TB PCIe 3.0 x2 SSD that ensures fast boot times and near-instant app loading.

Wireless connections are enhanced with ASUS WiFi Smart Connect that automatically selects the best WiFi source, so the laptop connects seamlessly to the best WiFi signal and known mobile hotspots. Whether working, creating, or simply enjoying entertainment, the new ZenBook 13 OLED makes everything effortless.

Vivid visuals, perfect portability
ZenBook 13 OLED has an amazing FHD OLED HDR NanoEdge display that renders true-to-life colors at any brightness level, with deep blacks for enhanced realism. It’s PANTONE Validated for superb color accuracy and has a cinema-grade 100% DCI-P3 colour gamut. The ultrafast response time ensures blur-free movies and games, and its low blue-light levels are TÜV Rheinland-certified for better eye care. The four-sided NanoEdge design features slim bezels that create an 88% screen-to-body ratio for a more immersive viewing experience.

ZenBook 13 OLED is designed for effortless portability, weighing just 1.14 kg with a compact and elegant all-metal chassis that’s a mere 13.9 mm thin. It’s also incredibly power efficient, with up to an amazing 13 hours of battery life on a single charge, making ZenBook 13 OLED a perfect match for today’s on-the-go lifestyles.

Unrivaled I/O
ZenBook 13 OLED redefines what’s possible in an ultrathin laptop, with uncompromised I/O capabilities. It’s just 13.9 mm thin, but still includes full-size HDMI and USB Type-A ports, two Thunderbolt 4 USB-C ports, and a microSD card reader for easy mobile data transfer.

The two Thunderbolt 4 USB-C ports on ZenBook 13 OLED deliver unrivaled versatility with ultrafast speeds. They support USB-C Power Delivery and provide up to 40 Gbps data-transfer speeds for high-performance peripherals. Combined with the Thunderbolt 4 USB-C ports and HDMI port, ZenBook 13 OLED can support also up to four displays: three external displays plus the built-in OLED display.

ZenBook 13 OLED also supports the new ASUS USB-C Easy Charge feature, which allows it to be conveniently charged from a wide range of standard USB-C chargers. USB-C Easy Charge allows users to enjoy ultrafast charging with any USB-C Power Delivery-certified charger, such as the bundled 65-watt charger, or charge at slower rates when wall sockets are unavailable using airline chargers, portable chargers or power banks. USB-C Easy Charge takes the frustration out of long journeys or travels in locations with limited mains power.

Ergonomic design
The new edge-to-edge ergonomic keyboard design on ZenBook 13 OLED increases the size of the keyboard for a more comfortable typing experience. It also creates space for an extra set of useful function keys on the right-hand side of the keyboard. For maximum typing comfort, the precision-engineered ErgoLift hinge automatically tilts the keyboard to the optimum typing angle when the lid is opened. This action also creates space under the laptop for extra cooling airflow.

Selectable cooling-fan profiles give users the choice of Whisper mode for ultra-quiet cooling, Standard mode for balanced dynamic performance, or Performance mode for high-efficiency cooling when full performance is needed. For easy data entry, there’s the productivity-enhancing ASUS NumberPad 2.0. This is a dual-function touchpad with an integrated LED-illuminated full-size numeric keypad: simply tapping the icon on the touchpad turns NumberPad on and off.

An integrated infrared (IR) camera located on the top bezel makes password-free face login fast and easy with Windows Hello. It also works in dim lighting conditions, so accessing ZenBook 13 OLED is easier and faster than ever in any environment.

ZenBook 13 OLED features an ASUS ClearVoice Mic with AI-trained noise-canceling technology to ensure clear voice outgoing communications in online meetings or internet voice calls. They also use ASUS ClearVoice Speaker technology to filter out ambient noise from incoming audio streams.

ASUS ZenBook 13 OLED (UX325) will be available from 8th April 2021 in UAE from Virgin Megastore, Jumbo, Sharaf DG, Emax, ECity, Computronic, Gulf Micro, AL Ershad, and Amazon. The price starts from AED 3799.
