The Zenbook 17 Fold OLED (UX9702) from ASUS is the first foldable OLED laptop with a 17.3-inch screen. This ultraportable laptop with a screen size of 12.5 inches opens up to a flexible 17.3-inch device with six modes that push the limits of innovation.
This futuristic gadget includes a 12th Gen Intel Core i7 engine, Intel Iris Xe graphics, 16 GB RAM, and a 1 TB PCIe SSD, changing work and entertainment user experiences.
This unique laptop has an OLED screen that can be folded in half to make two smaller panels of different sizes. When the massive 4:3 17.3-inch 2.5K NanoEdge touchscreen is unfurled, it transforms into two flawless 3:2 12.5-inch 1920 x 1280 screens. When folded along its well-made 180-degree hinge, the 12.5-inch device becomes very small and easy to carry. The Zenbook 17 Fold OLED can be used as a desktop, a laptop (with a Bluetooth keyboard), a laptop (with a virtual keyboard), a tablet, a reader, or an extended screen.
With the help of the faux leather kickstand, the 17.3-inch screen can be folded out and propped up in landscape mode when in Desktop mode. With the ASUS ErgoSense Bluetooth keyboard and touchpad, the device can be used as a powerful PC with a big screen. This makes it possible to work all the time, whether at home or at the office.
Laptop Mode (BT Keyboard)
In Laptop mode, the Bluetooth keyboard sticks magnetically to the bottom half of the folded screen. In Laptop mode, the bottom screen can be turned into a virtual keyboard. These modes are great for people who are always on the go and want a device they can bring from meeting to meeting. In tablet mode, the 17.3-inch touchscreen can be used as a full-touch screen for teamwork and big ideas. The vertical hinge on the Zenbook 17 Fold OLED makes it perfect for studying or reading e-books in “reader mode.”
Lastly, in Extended mode, with the folded 12.5-inch panels propped up in portrait mode, users can smoothly scroll on both displays. One of the two USB-C Thunderbolt 4 ports on the Zenbook 17 Fold OLED can be used to connect to an external monitor.
ScreenXpert 3’s easy-to-use window management features, like Mode Switcher, offer different split-display layouts and app layouts that can be changed to make each mode more productive. Its durable hinge makes it easy to switch between modes. For your peace of mind, it has been opened and closed over 30,000 times.
The Intel Evo-certified Zenbook 17 Fold OLED has a 12th Gen Intel Core i7 processor, Intel Iris Xe graphics, 16 GB RAM, and a 1 TB PCIe 4.0 SSD, which makes it easy to do more than one thing at once. The 75-watt-hour battery has USB-C Easy Charge, so it can be charged quickly with most USB-C chargers, power banks, or Power Delivery-certified chargers, including the 65 W fast-charge adapter that comes with the device.
