ASUS Releases the Latest ZenBook Flip 13 in Singapore

World’s most compact convertible laptop featuring frameless NanoEdge display and a footprint 10% smaller than its predecessor

  • Stunning 13.3-inch frameless NanoEdge displays with ultra-narrow bezels for 10%-smaller footprint
  • NumberPad touchpad with LED numeric keypad, and world-facing camera for mixed-reality applications
  • 8th Gen Intel Core processors with ultrafast 1TB PCIe SSD
  • Precision-engineered dual-action mechanism tilts keyboard for comfortable typing; tested to survive 20,000 open/close cycles

SINGAPORE (19 August 2019) — ASUS today announces the new ZenBook Flip 13 (UX362), the world’s most compact[i] convertible 13.3-inch laptop. Designed to be versatile, powerful and supremely portable, the ZenBook Flip 13 (UX362) are 10% smaller than the previous models[ii] and feature frameless NanoEdge displays with ultra-narrow bezels on all four sides and a 90% screen-to-body ratio that enables a much more compact chassis design.

The ASUS ZenBook series has a long-established tradition of design innovation, one that is continued by these new models with the introduction of two brand-new features. The ZenBook Flip 13 (UX362) also introduces the amazing new NumberPad, an innovative dual-function touchpad with a built-in LED-illuminated numeric keypad for fast data entry.

The ZenBook Flip 13 (UX362) is powered by the 8th Generation Intel® Core processors, and the touchscreen display support an active stylus for easy and intuitive creative input. As well as allowing versatile usage modes, the unique any-position 360° ErgoLift hinge lifts and tilts the keyboard into a comfortable typing position when the laptop is opened. To ensure maximum reliability, the hinge mechanism is subjected to a 20,000-cycle open/close test. The ZenBook Flip 13 (UX362) is also ultra-tough, meeting the ultra-demanding MIL-STD-810G standard for durability and reliability.

The World’s Most Compact Convertible Laptop

The all-new frameless NanoEdge design of the ZenBook Flip 13 (UX362) brings a whole new dimension to the viewing experience. The ultraslim bezels allow expansive and immersive visuals that are distraction-free, making work or play a true pleasure. The world-leading 90% screen-to-body ratio not only provides stunningly beautiful visuals, but gives the laptop ultra-compact dimensions so they have a footprint that is 10% smaller than their predecessors1 — making them the world’s most compact convertible laptop.

Innovative Design

The ZenBook Flip 13 (UX362) features the amazing new NumberPad — a novel solution to the lack of a dedicated numeric keypad on small laptops. In normal use, NumberPad is a large glass-covered Windows Precision Touchpad with multi-gesture support. A tap of the NumberPad icon on the touchpad turns it into an LED-illuminated keypad with a familiar layout for easy data entry.

Powerful Performance

The ZenBook Flip 13 (UX362) packs a real punch. It is built using high-performance components, including the the 8th Generation Intel® Core i7 processor — now faster than ever before — and 16GB of RAM. Lightning-fast PCIe® SSD storage means they boot up in just a few seconds, and apps load almost instantaneously.

Reliable 360° ErgoLift hinge and military-grade durability

The ZenBook Flip 13 (UX362) features the unique 360° ErgoLift hinge design, which has a silky-smooth, stepless action that holds the display securely at any angle, allowing the ZenBook Flip 13 (UX362) to be used in laptop, tablet, stand or tent modes — or anything in between — for the ultimate versatility. The precision-engineered, all-metal hinge mechanism is torture-tested with 20,000 open/close cycles to ensure outstanding long-term reliability. For typing comfort, the ErgoLift hinge simultaneously lifts and tilts the keyboard to a comfortable typing angle when the laptop is opened beyond 135°.

The ZenBook Flip 13 (UX362) meets the ultra-demanding MIL-STD-810G military standard for reliability and durability, undergoing a punishing test regime that includes extended tests for operation in harsh environments including extreme altitudes, temperatures and humidity. They have also passed ASUS internal laptop tests that far exceed the standards set by the industry.

AVAILABILITY & PRICING

The ASUS ZenBook Flip 13 (UX362FA-EL315T) will be retailing at $1,898 from 9th August at all ASUS Brand Shop, ASUS Online Store and all authorised retailers.
