ASUS Launches the Zenbook 14 OLED (UX3402)

ASUS has announced the all-new Zenbook 14 OLED (UX3402), a powerful, elegant and lightweight 14-inch laptop that introduces a completely new and modern look to the pioneering Zenbook series. It’s the new benchmark for portable perfection.

Designed to deliver a cinematic audiovisual experience, Zenbook 14 OLED features an expansive 16:10 2.8K 90Hz OLED NanoEdge 550-nit PANTONE Validated 90Hz display with a cinema-grade 100% DCI-P3 gamut. It’s DisplayHDR True Black 500 certified for deep blacks and is also TÜV Rheinland certified for eye care. The Harman Kardon-certified Dolby Atmos sound system uses a smart amplifier to deliver powerful spatial sound.

Zenbook 14 OLED delivers excellent performance, powered by the latest 12th Generation Intel Core processors and Intel Iris Xe graphics, with up to 16 GB RAM, ultrafast PCIe 4.0 SSDs, the latest WiFi 6E connectivity, and ensures maximum life from the high-capacity 75 Wh battery. Despite its compact size — a mere 16.9 mm thin and 1.39 kg light — the all-aluminium Zenbook 14 OLED includes a full set of I/O ports, including two Thunderbolt™ 4 USB-C ports, an HDMI 2.0 port, a USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-A port, a microSD card reader and an audio combo jack.

The Zenbook 14 OLED offers users an enhanced audiovisual experience, with an expansive 16:10 2.8K OLED NanoEdge 600-nit 90Hz touchscreen that delivers incredibly detailed visuals with ultra-vivid colours. The NanoEdge design has ultra-slim bezels and a 90% screen-to-body ratio, which in turn gives Zenbook 14 OLED a svelte and compact form factor. For superb colour accuracy, the display is PANTONE Validated, and the DisplayHDR True Black 500 certification means it displays the deepest possible blacks. It also cares for eyes during long screen sessions, with low blue-light levels that are certified by both SGS and TÜV Rheinland.

Immersive audio is delivered by the powerful and crystal-clear Harman Kardon-certified Dolby Atmos stereo sound system, which uses a smart amplifier that uses special algorithms to boost loudness levels by up to 350% without distortion. Dolby Atmos delivers a new spatial sound experience for all types of audio, for breathtaking realism in music, movies and videos.

Whatever the user needs to do, Zenbook 14 OLED is primed and ready, featuring all the multitasking power of up to the latest 12th Generation Intel Core i7 processor, up to 16 GB RAM, Intel Iris Xe graphics, and an ultrafast up to 1 TB PCIe 4.0 x4 SSD for storage, while allowing all-day battery life from the 75 Wh battery. Designed for a sublime on-the-go experience, Zenbook 14 OLED packs this premium specification into a compact, slim and lightweight all-aluminium chassis that’s ready to go anywhere.

It’s just 16.9 mm thin and weighs a mere 1.39 kg, yet it’s packed with a full set of I/O ports for easy device and peripheral connectivity. The latest ultrafast Thunderbolt 4 USB-C ports support fast charging, 4K UHD external displays and up to 40 Gbps data transfers, and there’s also an HDMI port and a USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-A port alongside a microSD card reader. Communications and audio I/O are taken care of by the convenient audio combo jack.

Zenbook 14 OLED introduces a breathtaking new interpretation of the signature Zenbook design that’s timelessly elegant yet totally modern. The bold new lid design is based around our new monogram ‘A’ logo — first seen in the 30th Anniversary Edition Zenbook — that’s delicately carved in shining metal to produce a pattern inspired by Japanese Kintsugi craftsmanship. An echo of the iconic spun-metal Zenbook finish, with its Zen-inspired concentric circles — can be seen on the end caps of the hinges. Zenbook 14 OLED is available in two fresh new colours: Ponder Blue and Aqua Celadon.

Giving users the best experiences is something we really care about. That’s why Zenbook 14 OLED is packed with thoughtful design features, such as the 180° ErgoLift hinge that makes it easy to share and collaborate, ASUS NumberPad 2.0 for easy data entry, and a fingerprint sensor on the power button for single-touch login with Windows Hello.

This laptop also features the new full-size ErgoSense keyboard and touchpad for the most comfortable typing experience ever. Its 19.05 mm key pitch is the same as a desktop keyboard, for superb typing comfort and accuracy. The 0.2 mm key-cap dish matches the shape of fingertips, and the long 1.4 mm key travel lets use type with optimal force. The special hydrophobic coating on the ErgoSense touchpad provides smoother, silk-like touch feedback for every scrolling movement, and there’s also a tough, easy-to-clean anti-fingerprint coating.

ASUS Zenbook 14 OLED (UX3402) will be available on 11th August 2022 in UAE from Virgin Megastore, Sharaf DG, Jumbo, Emax, ECITY, Noon, Amazon, Computronic, Al Ershad and ASUS e-shop. Pricing starts from AED 5,299.
