Asus has been busy with a lot of new and upcoming devices lately. At a press event on Monday, the company announced a number of devices, one of which is the ZenBook Flip S UX370. This device has been touted as “the world’s thinnest convertible”. It is pretty easy to see why, as the device is just 10.9mm thick, and weighs just 1.1kg. Most definitely, the light weight and slim profile will win many hearts.
The ZenBook Flip S UX370 is a little convertible device that has four modes: Laptop, Tent, Presentation and Tablet. It weighs a measly 1.1 kilograms. It runs Windows 10, and it has an Asus Pen for writing and drawing using Windows Ink. Furthermore, for easy access, the device sports a fingerprint sensor similar to the ones usually found on smartphones. That sounds really nice.
Other features of the ZenBook Flip S UX370 include two USB Type-C ports and Intel’s seventh-generation core i7-7500 processor. However, unlike the Zenbook Pro, the Flip S does not have discrete graphics, which is a major drawback. Therefore, you would probably not enjoy heavy gaming on the device. Instead, the device has a brilliant 4K display. This screen is held up quite well by some pretty strong hinges, which support the screen at any angle.
Asus claims that the device boots up three times faster than its counterparts. So far, reports have proved them right, so that should not be a problem. In the meantime, here are some key specifications for the device, as announced by Asus:
- Intel Core i7-7500 processor
- 9mm thick, 1.1kg
- Four user modes (Laptop, Tent, Presentation and Tablet)
- Two USB Type-C ports
- Price: $1,099
So far, there has been no word on when the ZenBook Flip S will hit the market. However, we can expect it to be sooner than later.
