The ZenBook Flip S was unveiled to the press in August and was presented as the convertible version of the ZenBook S.
The UX371 is one of the very first laptops to feature Intel's new Tiger Lake chip, replacing AMD's Ryzen processors.
Among the innovations that make this ZenBook a very high-end laptop PC are the 4K OLED touch screen, Thunderbolt 4 connectivity, WiFi 6 network standard ... not to mention its compact and robust aluminum chassis.
First, the new 4K OLED touchscreen delivers a resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels with an aspect ratio of 16: 9. It offers ultra sharp vivid colors with an incredible pixel density of 331ppi. OLED technology allows for very high contrast with very low black values for a brightness of 500 nits (a nit is the standard unit of luminance or simply the brightness of a screen…the higher the better).
As for power, the 11th generation Intel Tiger Lake i7 CPU is a Quad Core with a frequency of 2.8 GHz, at full power the four cores can reach an impressive 4 GHz ... All in stunning silence, due to a ventilation system based on a single fan.
The new Tiger Lake processor incorporates a much more powerful graphics adapter than the previous versions of the Iris iGPU. This new Intel Xe Graphics G7 iGPU has a maximum clock speed of 1300 MHz. You will no longer worry about finishing your work tasks during your commute.
The NanoEdge screen fits ideally into an ultra-narrow bezel, allowing it to fit into a flexible chassis. To optimize your visual comfort, the NanoEdge screen also has an anti-glare coating that reduces annoying reflections. Its edge-to-edge keyboard, its weight of 1.2 kg and its 13.9 mm thickness also contribute to give it a serious, refined and compact design.
Adding to the refined design, the ErgoLift hinge not only allows for a 360 ° rotatable display but raises the rear of the ZenBook when the screen is opened during standard use, thereby optimizing air circulation while improving the cooling of the components.
The overachievers and go getters will be more than satisfied with the great autonomy and record breaking charge time. With the ZenBook Flip S's fast charging technology, you can recharge the battery to 60% of its capacity in a mere 49 minutes of charging. A full charge will get you 20 hours of autonomy. The ZenBook Flip S supports the all new USB-C® Easy Charge technology which means that you can easily and quickly charge it from any USB-C power outlet.
When it comes to connectivity, the ZenBook Flip S connects seamlessly to the latest peripherals. It features one full-size HDMI port, two Thunderbolt ™ 4 USB-C® ports, and one USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-A port. As for WiFi, you can count on the new WiFi6 802.11ax technology to give you the best connection speeds. The WiFi SmartConnect feature will allow you to automatically select the best signal available.
The ZenBook S Flip is an ideal choice considering the performance it offers, its military grade toughness with a Mil-STD 810G certification, its compact and sleek design ... It will be an outstanding travel companion or virtual office during your business trips.
