ASUS Announces Availability of the ZenBook 13 (UX331UA)


Fremont, CA (August 6, 2018) - ASUS today announced availability of the ZenBook 13 UX331UA, an ultrathin and ultralight addition to the ZenBook 13 Series designed for discerning travelers looking for the ultimate ultraportable without having to break the bank. The ZenBook 13 UX331UA replaces the ever popular ZenBook UX330UA by not only upgrading to a modern look with slim bezels, but also by weighing less to deliver a stylish and portable, yet affordable and powerful laptop.

The Ultrapowerful, Ultraportable

The ZenBook 13 UX331UA offers serious on-the-go computing power. At its heart is up to an 8th Generation Intel Core i7 processor — which can boost to 3.7GHz when needed — with 8GB DDR4 RAM, along with a 256GB SSD for an ultra-responsive system. So whether the user is creating mega-sized office documents, manipulating photos, editing HD video, or simply taking a break with the latest high-powered games, the ZenBook 13 UX331UA will never keep them waiting.

Designed for non-stop, on-the-go lifestyles, the ZenBook 13 UX331UA offers the freedom of all-day battery life. A specially designed 50Wh lithium-polymer battery delivers up to 14 hours of autonomy, with fast-charge technology that takes just 49 minutes to recharge to 60% capacity.

Incredibly Immersive and Lifelike Multimedia

To deliver immersive, lifelike visuals and provide the biggest screen in the least space, the ZenBook 13 UX331UA has a beautiful NanoEdge Full HD display, with an ultrathin bezel that gives it an impressive 80% screen-to-body ratio. This 13.3-inch display fits in an ultra-compact frame, giving the ZenBook 13 UX331UA a smaller footprint than many 13-inch models. Its 178° wide-view technology ensures that image quality isn't degraded when viewed at extreme angles, so it's great for collaborating or entertaining, and the wide 100% sRGB color gamut ensures vivid and accurate colors.

The powerful Harman Kardon-certified audio system features the next generation of ASUS SonicMaster technology. With its tailored mix of superior hardware — including low-distortion smart-amplifier technology that can boost volume by up to 3.5X — and cleverly designed software, the ZenBook 13 UX331UA delivers a high-end audio experience.

No-compromise Productivity

For unrivaled on-the-go productivity, the ZenBook 13 UX331UA has a full-size backlit ergonomic keyboard that’s optimized for comfort with 1.4mm key travel. The Windows Precision Touchpad is engineered for maximum comfort and accuracy, with a glass covering for smooth control. It features palm-rejection technology and supports multifinger gestures and handwriting, and a built-in fingerprint sensor allows secure one-touch login via Windows Hello.

The ZenBook 13 UX331UA is equipped with the new, reversible USB-C port that delivers data transfer speeds that are up to 10X faster than older USB 2.0 connections. There are also two USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-A ports, an HDMI port and a microSD card reader.

For uncompromising wireless connectivity, the ZenBook 13 UX331UA features the new and exclusive ASUS Wi-Fi Master technology, which reduces interference to ensure faster and more reliable dual-band 802.11ac Wi-Fi connections at extreme distances¹. With a top speed of 867Mbps it's up to 6X faster than 802.11n², for seamless video-streaming, smooth web-surfing and lag-free gaming.
