ZenFone 3 (ZE552KL)

ZenBook evolved, perfection redefined

Winner of a 2017 iF Design Award, the prestigious ZenBook 3 Deluxe is a true masterpiece of design. It's no bigger than many 13-inch laptops — yet it features an extra-large 14-inch display. This ultra-compact, ultra-light marvel is just 12.9mm thick and weighs a mere 1.1 kg, giving you the perfect balance between portability and productivity. ZenBook 3 Deluxe takes the fine traditions of the ZenBook Series to a new level — combining style, elegance and superb craftsmanship with outstanding performance. Every single precision component and every elegantly crafted detail has been completely re-engineered and redesigned to make ZenBook 3 Deluxe the most sophisticated and desirable ZenBook ever created.

Pioneering technology meets world-renowned design

ZenBook has always been renowned for its unique, stunning looks, and you'll instantly recognize the iconic Zen-inspired spun-metal finish that adorns the all-metal unibody chassis of ZenBook 3 Deluxe. This signature finish is now even finer and more detailed: the result of a complex 40-step process that includes an extra polishing step using an ultra-fine abrasive. And we've added a beautiful twist with a special dual-phase anodizing process that creates stunning golden highlights along its precision-chamfered edges. To complete this sophisticated new theme, we've also added a unique golden ASUS logo on the lid and given the keyboard a matching gold-hued backlight.

Extraordinary elegance

A laptop as prestigious as ZenBook 3 Deluxe deserves colors that are out of the ordinary. Each of the two stunning themes — Royal Blue and Quartz Grey — has its own individual inspiration derived from the natural world, and both colors are designed to work in perfect harmony with the luxurious golden detailing.

Royal Blue is inspired by the awesome beauty of a golden sunrise over the deep-blue ocean.

Rose Gold echoes the sophistication of fine rosé champagne, served in elegant gold-rimmed flutes — truly a sign of distinction.

Quartz Grey reflects the stunning contrasts of native gold and crystalline quartz, a harmonious geological pairing celebrated in this classic theme.

Exploring the limits, with every detail.

A true classic is instantly recognizable: ZenBook 3 Deluxe is a work of art, crafted just for you. Its ultra-compact all-aluminum-alloy unibody design is only 12.9mm thick and weighs just 1.1 kg. It's the world's thinnest 14-inch laptop, designed to give you effortless mobility.

Innovative engineering, zero hassle

The ultra-thin 12.9mm profile of ZenBook 3 Deluxe required ASUS engineers to invent one of the world's most compact laptop hinges — at just 3.0mm high — to preserve its sleek lines. This amazing hinge ensures smooth, seamless and hassle-free action while complementing the gorgeous appearance of ZenBook 3 Deluxe.

Stronger by design: aerospace-grade alloy

To achieve its amazingly light weight, without compromising structural integrity, ZenBook 3 Deluxe is precision-crafted from 6013 aluminum alloy, a premium material that is 50% stronger than the 6063 alloy often used in standard laptops. Because of its amazing strength, 6013 aluminum alloy is commonly used in automotive and aerospace applications. This elegant raw material is finely worked and includes the signature ASUS spun-metal finish on the ZenBook 3 Deluxe.

Spectacular display, lifelike color

ZenBook 3 Deluxe is the first ASUS laptop display fully covered with edge-to-edge Corning® Gorilla® Glass 5, the toughest-ever version of this remarkable damage-resistant material. The ultra-narrow bezel on the display is just 7.46mm wide, giving ZenBook 3 Deluxe a class-leading 84% screen-to-body ratio. The reduced bezel thickness allows the ZenBook 3 Deluxe to fit a stunning 14-inch Full HD display into a svelte 13-inch chassis, minimizing size while helping you maximize productivity. With its 178° wide-view technology, superb color reproduction, crisp detail and 300cd/m2 brightness, ZenBook 3 Deluxe needs to be seen to be believed.

Refined beauty, incredible strength

To create the incredibly slim profile of ZenBook 3 Deluxe, we had to make the glass of the display panel as thin as possible, while keeping it tough enough to resist the accidental scratches and knocks of everyday use. To achieve this, we covered it with a 0.55mm-thin layer of super-strong Corning® Gorilla® Glass 5. ZenBook 3 Deluxe is one of the first laptops to use this incredible new material, which is the toughest-ever version of this damage-resistant glass.

Less bezel, more display

Fitting a 14-inch Full HD display into the 13-inch frame of ZenBook 3 Deluxe wasn't easy. One of the keys to achieving this feat was to minimize the width of the display bezel, which is just 7.46mm wide. This ultra-slim bezel maximizes the visible area of the gorgeous display, giving you a laptop with an impressive 84% screen-to-body ratio that reduces visual distractions to help you maximize your productivity.
