A feast for your ears
Fire up your favourite movie or album, and you’ll be blown away by the immersive surround sound delivered by the powerful Harman Kardon-certified quad-speaker Dolby Atmos audio system. It’s driven by a smart amplifier that maximises volume — up to 3.5x louder than a standard amplifier — while minimizing distortion, ensuring crystal-clear sound for entertainment or communications.
Smart Amp 3.5x louder volume
Smart Amp — 350% louder sound, zero distortion
The volume-enhancing, distortion-suppressing dual-channel smart amplifier is equipped with a powerful DSP chip that can drive the twin speakers at the maximum volume possible while preventing long-term damage to the sensitive speaker voice coils. Creating or listening to audio in your videos, movies, music or games has never sounded better!
Our smart amplifier system uses a high-power amplifier that can increase speaker volume by up to 350%.
The smart amplifier helps to deliver clearer audio by boosting volume across the entire audio spectrum, not just at certain frequencies. This ensures crystal-clear highs and powerful bass for a superlative audio experience.
The smart amplifier’s output is intelligently matched to the speaker’s physical capabilities, fine-tuning the system across the entire spectrum to ensure distortion-free audio at any volume level. The result is a high-quality audio experience and reliable long-term operation.
Next-level AI noise-cancelling audio technology
With the increase of remote work and video conferences, we implemented the ASUS AI noise-cancelling technology to ensure the best experience. ASUS AI noise-cancelling audio employs machine learning in order to isolate unwanted noise from human speech. The ClearVoice Mic feature in the MyASUS app can filter out ambient noise, and normalise all individual voices in Multi-presenter mode from different positions for optimum group conference-call quality. The ClearVoice Speaker feature filters out all ambient noise apart from human speech — so you’ll hear what everyone else is saying.
Try the demo to experience the amazing difference in different environment that ASUS AI noise-cancelling technology can make.

5 MP AI camera
ASUS 3DNR technology
Our HD infrared camera with AdaptiveLock is powered by the new Intel Visual Sensing Controller. This AI-powered feature senses when you move away from the laptop and locks the laptop for security, and logs right back in when you approach the laptop. When you look away from the screen, it also dims the screen to save battery life.
There’s also a colour sensor that detects ambient light levels and automatically adjusts the brightness and colour temperature of the screen to provide the best-looking image for your surroundings.
The 5 MP AI webcam features ASUS 3D Noise Reduction (3DNR) technology to give you superbly clear video calls. The unique algorithm sharpens images and performs real-time de-noising to make sure everything looks crisp and clear during video calls.
More screens, more versatility
Using the window management feature in the intuitive ScreenXpert app, you can split the screens on Zenbook 17 Fold OLED in many ways in order to maximise your productivity, with up to three windows in any mode.
In landscape orientation, the topmost window will become the main window, and other windows will be automatically sized to fit the folded screen via Mode Switcher.
Mode Switcher lets you choose up to three windows via the icon at the lower right of the display. Windows are automatically arranged to fit the folded screen.

All specifications are subject to change without notice. Please check with your supplier for exact offers. Products may not be available in all markets.
Some of the third party video calling applications (like Microsoft Teams Free, Wechat, Line, and so on) may not support webcam screen rotate function.
The visual appearance of OLED displays may change over the product’s lifetime. This is expected behavior that can include image persistence or burn-in, where the display shows a faint remnant of an image even after a new image appears on the screen. This tends to occur only in extreme use cases, such as when a static, high-contrast image is continuously displayed for prolonged periods of time. ASUS laptops with an OLED display minimise this risk by setting Windows’s Dark mode as default, as well as shortening the idle time before the screen is turned off — both on mains (AC) and battery (DC) power. This dual approach minimises the potential for burn-in to maximise the lifespan of your OLED display lifespan, and also reduces unnecessary power draw for optimal battery life. We also recommended adjust the brightness of your OLED display to complement the ambient lighting in your environment, rather than keeping the screen at maximum brightness at all times. You should also ensure that you have an animated, dark-background screensaver enabled in the Windows Settings tool.
Weight might vary by specifications.
Unfolded: 378.5 x 287.6 x 8.7~12.9 mm. Folded: 287.6 x 189.3 x 17.4~34.4 mm.
In 12.5” scenarios (Laptop mode) panel resolution is always in 1920 by 1280.
Battery Life: up to 9.5 hours (12.5” Laptop mode); up to 8.5 hours (17.3” Desktop mode).
Some of the applications (such as games) may not support Fullscreen mode. Please adjust to Windowed mode or Borderless mode for better program execution.
Due to the unique display materials, you might notice some creases in the folding area and this is a normal characteristics of Foldable OLED displays. However, this doesn’t influence the quality and performance of the display and doesn’t affect your user experience either.
When using the device, please avoid using stylus or sharp items to touch the display, as they might damage the display.

Function key operation is working based on the system environment. Keyboard functions are designed for Zenbook 17 Fold OLED (UX9702), and may not support other kinds of devices.
WiFi 6E availability may vary by country and their specific regulations. Feature is only supported in Windows 11 or later.
The charging speed of a Power Delivery charger will match the connected adapter’s power output, up to a maximum of 65 watts. USB-C® Easy Charge provides 4.5 watt charging when connected to a non-Power Delivery charger, including most portable and USB Type-A to USB-C® chargers. Some portable chargers may not support such features, depending on the configuration.
Conference calls, where many colleagues may gather around a single laptop, present particular challenges for clarity — with voices coming from varied directions and distances. That’s where ClearVoice Mic’s Multi-Presenter Conference Call mode comes to the rescue. With this smart feature enabled, MyASUS detects and optimises the individual voices before relaying them all at the same volume level — ensuring improved quality for group calls.
Harmful effects on retinal cells
Cone cells are the cells in the eye's retina that enable colour vision. Blue light is often more harmful to these cells compared to other wavelengths of light. In experiments conducted by the Gifu Pharmaceutical University in Japan3, mice cone cells were subjected to red, green, and blue light sources. The survivability of the cone cells under blue light exposure dropped dramatically to 20% after 24 hours, while cone cells exposed to other colours retained around 100% survivability.
When it gets dark, your brain produces the hormone melatonin, which helps to maintain the correct scheduling of your daily sleep cycles. According to a Stanford University study4 the production of melatonin can be blocked by exposure to blue light at night, and potentially cause sleep disruption.
The industry HDR standard covers a huge range of brightness from 0.0005 nits — the lowest measurable level — up to 10,000 nits. The true blacks and high brightness possible with OLED displays give them a 75% coverage of the HDR standard, compared to about 46% for LCD displays.
Millions of pixels, individually illuminated
The pixels on an OLED display each contain three sub-pixels. For example, a 2.5K (2560 x 1920) display has 4,915,200 pixels, which means it has 14,745,600 self-illuminated sub-pixels. Each sub-pixel self-illuminates independently, unlike LCD displays with pixels that need to be backlit, usually by just 50 or 60 LEDs. This means that it’s easier to achieve true black on an OLED display, by simply turning off a pixel. This can’t be done on an ordinary LED display, because the backlight can’t be turned off with such granularity. This fact also gives OLED displays exceptionally high contrast.
Clearer motion than ultrafast LCD displays
The ultrafast 0.2 ms response time of an OLED display means it can switch colours and images much quicker than even LCD displays with higher refresh rate. So a 90 Hz, 0.2 ms OLED display shows much smoother and clearer motion than a 144 Hz, 25 ms LCD laptop display.
