ASUS today has officially launched the 2021 ZenBook Flip OLED Series in Malaysia Available in two models, one of them is the ZenBook Flip S OLED which the company has claimed as the world’s thinnest 13-inch convertible laptop with a 4K OLED display.
ASUS further said that the Pantone Validated 13.3-inch 4K OLED touch display that it has equipped into the convertible also offers 100 per cent DCI-P3 colour gamut coverage and is also a VESA DisplayHDR 500 True Back certified panel. Furthermore, the display also supports ASUS Pen active stylus which has 4096 pressure levels.
Weighing at just around 1.2kg, the 13.9mm thin laptop is powered by Intel Core i7-1165G7 which is also inclusive of the integrated Intel Iris Xe Graphics. For Malaysia, the laptop comes standard with 16GB LPDDR4x-4266 RAM and 1TB solid state drive.
At the same time, ASUS has also rolled out the ZenBook Flip 13 OLED into our market which carries a similar 13.3-inch OLED display but has a lower resolution at Full HD. Nevertheless, the display still has a Pantone Validated panel with similar 100 per cent DCI-P3 colour gamut coverage and support for ASUS Pen.
In terms of components, the Flip 13 OLED has two processor options including Intel Core i7-1165G7 and Core i5-1135G7 although both variants still rely on Intel Iris Xe Graphics as their integrated GPU. Similarly, both variants also come standard with 8GB of RAM and 512GB internal storage.
Since both of them are equipped with a 13.3-inch display, the Flip S OLED and Flip 13 OLED may look similar to each other but you can differentiate them by looking at their colourway and chassis outline. This is because the Flip S OLED is draped in Jade Black colourway while the outline of its lid and body, as well as the ASUS logo itself, are presented in Red Copper.
There is also a brushed aluminium deco bar on top of its keyboard area. On another hand, the Flip 13 OLED is much grounded in style and is painted in Pine Grey colourway without any of those fancy highlights that present on Flip S OLED.
In terms of pricing, the ZenBook Flip S OLED can be obtained for RM 6,799 while the Core i7 version of ZenBook Flip 13 OLED goes for RM 5,199. For those who prefer the Core i5-based Flip 13 OLED, it is priced at RM 4,699 and all of these new convertibles are readily available from ASUS retailers nationwide both online as well as offline.
