CES 2024: ASUS Zenbook Duo Has Two Full-Sized 14-inch OLED Displays

Sometimes, one laptop screen isn’t enough when productivity kicks into high gear. The ASUS Zenbook Duo 14 allowed for cross-screen workflow, with its successor Zenbook Pro 14 Duo OLED bringing it to greater heights. Then, it featured the world’s first 14.5-inch 2.8K 120Hz OLED touchscreen panel, paired with a second display.

Now, the versatility ante has been upped. Making its mark at CES 2024 is the Zenbook Duo, touted as the world’s first AI-powered 14-inch dual-screen laptop. Tipping the scales at 1.35kg, it offers two full-sized ASUS Lumina OLED 16:10 displays that top out at 3K resolution (2,880 x 1,620) and 120Hz. The device, when fully opened, expands to 19.8 inches, boasting a more spacious workspace for users to enjoy.

The integrated kickstand and detachable ErgoSense keyboard, meanwhile, allows for use in vertical or horizontal orientations across various user modes, including Laptop, Dual Screen, Desktop, and Sharing. For those who prefer a more traditional experience, the keyboard can be placed on the bottom display to resemble a clamshell laptop form. Connecting it to the pogo pins on the edges of the lower screen recharges it, with magnets facilitating the positioning process.

Under the hood, the Zenbook Duo is decked out in up to an Intel Core Ultra 9 processor with an integrated Neural Processing Unit (NPU) for AI acceleration, 32GB of RAM, and up to 2GB of storage. As with all ASUS offerings, the device has been durability tested to MIL-STD-810H military-grade standards, ensuring a longer lifespan.

Joining it are the refreshed iterations of the Zenbook 14 OLED lineup, the Vivobook Pro 15 OLED, and the Vivobook S series. At 1.2kg, the 14.9mm-thin Zenbook 14 OLED comes in two configurations — up to an Intel Core Ultra 9 processor and Intel Arc GPU (UX3406), or the latest AMD Ryzen 8040 series processors and AMD Radeon graphics card (UM3406).

The ultraportable also boasts a 3K ASUS Lumina OLED 120 Hz display, alongside a diverse port selection that packs two Thunderbolt 4 (UX3405) or USB4 (UM3406) ports, a USB-C 3.2 Gen 1 Type-A port, an HDMI 2.1 slot, and a 3.5mm audio jack. Other notable features include a new quiet ASUS ErgoSense keyboard, certified U.S. military-grade durability, a 75Wh battery, and more.

Elsewhere, the Vivobook Pro 15 OLED marries with creativity with gaming prowess. The upgraded device now comes equipped with up to an Intel Core Ultra 9 processor with an integrated NPU AI engine, and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4060 GPU with a low-latency MUX switch. It sports a 3K 120 Hz ASUS Lumina OLED display, paired with a 0.2-millisecond response time and 16:9 aspect ratio. In addition to 24GB of RAM and 2TB of storage, the Vivobook Pro 15 OLED will offer versatile connectivity and ASUS’ own IceCool Pro cooling technology as well.

Rounding out the CES 2024 reveals, the Vivobook S series features a new design language with a minimalist, sleek look. Measuring 14, 15.6, and 16 inches, the Vivobook S14, S15, and S16 OLED are available in both AMD (M5406 / M5506 / M5606) and Intel (S5406 / S5506 / S5606) configurations.

Regardless of the models, the laptop touts a memory allocation features that lets users allot up to 8GB of memory to the iGPU to enhance the performance of gaming and AI apps. This latest lineup also promises ASUS Lumina OLED displays with resolutions up to 3.2K (S5606 / M5606) along with 120Hz refresh rates, a 100 percent DCI-P3 gamut, and the ErgoSense keyboard with customisable RGB backlighting.

As all laptops in the 2024 range will run on the latest AI-powered Intel Core Ultra and AMD Ryzen 8040 Series processors, users can expect better graphic performance, faster response, and increased power efficiency across the board. There’s no word on local availability, configurations, and pricing as of now, however.
