The 2018 ASUS ZenBook Flip 13 + Flip 15 Hands-On Previews!

We were amongst the first in the world to get some hands-on time with the new 2018 ASUS ZenBook Flip 13 and Flip 15 convertible laptops in Taipei. Check out the full 2018 ASUS ZenBook tech briefing, as well as our own hands-on previews of the ZenBook Flip 13 and ZenBook Flip 15 laptops!

 

The 2018 ASUS ZenBook Tech Briefing

Let’s start with the 2018 ASUS ZenBook tech briefing by Andrew Chan, Senior Manager of the ASUS Global Product Team.

The 2018 ASUS ZenBook Flip 13 and Flip 15 models are essentially the convertible versions of the 2018 ASUS ZenBook laptops. They are now 10% smaller than the previous generation, thanks to their ASUS NanoEdge displays with ultra-thin bezels.

Thanks to the thinner form factor, they are now the world’s most compact convertible laptops. The NanoEdge display also delivers a more immersive viewing experience, thanks to its 90% screen-to-body ratio.

And believe it or not, these classy convertible laptops are tough – being certified to meet the MIL-STD-810G standard for durability and reliability!

Finally, both ZenBook Flip models features the 360° ErgoLift hinge design, which has a silky-smooth, stepless action that holds the display securely at any angle, allowing ZenBook Flip to be used in laptop, tablet, stand or tent modes… anything in between!

If you open the laptop beyond 135°, the ErgoLift hinge will automatically lift and tilt the keyboard to a more comfortable typing angle.

360° freedom. 100% ZenBook.

ASUS ZenBook Flip UX360CA inherits all the DNA of the classic ZenBook design, adding a distinctive touch of individuality to its convertible form factor. It has a unibody chassis crafted from a single block of solid aluminum, with the lid featuring the signature spun-metal ZenBook finish with its Zen-inspired pattern of concentric circles.

A masterpiece of lightweight design, UX360CA measures just 13.9mm thick and weighs a mere 1.3kg. Its elegant looks are further enhanced by the two stylish color options of Icicle Gold and Mineral Gray.

Lifelike color, from every angle

ASUS ZenBook Flip UX360CA has up to an ultra-detailed 13.3-inch QHD+ (3200 x 1800) touchscreen display, with in-plane switching (IPS) technology for wide 178° viewing angles and better off-center color reproduction and contrast than other panel technologies.

The display has an extremely high pixel density of 279ppi, with up to 40% more pixels than many competing 13.3-inch laptops. Its incredible clarity and detail, combined with a brightness of 350cd/m2, makes UX360CA ideal for viewing high-resolution movies, digital photos, graphics or office documents in unmatched detail.

A wide color gamut of 72% NTSC and exclusive ASUS Splendid technology ensure outstanding color reproduction, a boon for applications like movie viewing and color-critical graphics work.

Video performance is also enhanced with exclusive ASUS Tru2Life technology that automatically optimizes the sharpness and contrast of every pixel in every video frame, so that videos look clearer, more detailed and more realistic.

The clever fanless design, with its specially designed ultra-thin heatpipe, ensures totally silent operation.

The ZenBook family is renowned for its use of high-quality components and the latest technology, and UX360CA is no exception.
