Fremont, California (August 31, 2020) - ASUS today launched ZenBook S (UX393), a premium ultraportable 13.9-inch laptop with a brand-new 3:2 aspect-ratio form factor.

ZenBook S is 15.7 mm thin and 2.98 lb1 light that premieres a compact precision-crafted magnesium-alloy unibody. It’s built around a 3.3K (3300 x 2200) NanoEdge PANTONE® Validated touchscreen with a 3:2 aspect ratio that fits more on the screen. A high-capacity 67 Wh battery with fast-charge support gives ZenBook S up to 14 hours2 of autonomy.

The elegant new Jade Black livery features contrasting Red Copper diamond-cut highlights, and an off-center ASUS logo on the lid that adds to the visual appeal of the design. A precision-engineered ErgoLift hinge ensures a comfortable typing position on the spacious edge-to-edge keyboard, along with improved cooling airflow.

For outstanding on-the-go performance, ZenBook S is powered by up to a 10th Gen Intel Core i7 processor, with up to 16 GB RAM and up to a 1 TB PCIe 3.0 x4 M.2 SSD. It features full-size HDMI and USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-A ports, along with two ultrafast and versatile Thunderbolt™ 3 USB-C® ports and a MicroSD card reader.

The latest version of the MyASUS software allows users to get the most out of their laptop and smartphone, and the ASUS NumberPad 2.0 provides easy numeric data entry3. An infrared (IR) camera allows convenient face login with Windows Hello.

Irresistible beauty, supreme power

ZenBook S is precision-crafted with an all-metal unibody that uses magnesium alloy for maximum strength and lightness. Its compact 15.7 mm-slim design fits into any bag with no fuss, and has up to 14-hour battery life.

ZenBook S has a fast-charge capability where 60% charge takes as little as 49 minutes, and ASUS USB-C Easy Charge support allows versatile charging from a wide range of 5-20-volt USB-C chargers, including USB-C Power Delivery-certified models, airline chargers, portable chargers or even power banks4.

Amazing 3:2 design

The 13.9-inch ZenBook S introduces an all-new 3:2 aspect ratio that's taller than the standard 16:9 widescreen format. This form factor, along with the signature ultraslim display bezels of the NanoEdge design, enhance productivity by allowing users to see more content on the screen without scrolling.

This new shape is built around the amazing new 3:2 NanoEdge display, a superb touchscreen with a class-leading resolution of 3.3K (3300 x 2200) that allows users to enjoy pin-sharp visuals in incredible detail. This ultra-bright 500-nit display has excellent outdoor readability, and for ultra-vivid colors it has an exceptionally wide color gamut that covers 100% of the DCI-P3 color space and 133% of the sRGB color space. The display is also PANTONE® Validated to ensure professional-grade color accuracy, making it ideal for creative visual tasks.
