It’s finally happening, the merging of laptops and tablets. Introducing the ASUS ZenBook 17 Fold OLED, which was just revealed at CES 2022 in Las Vegas. It’s expected to launch some time around summer, or when Computex 2022 takes place, and the device essentially a foldable tablet that doubles as a laptop. How so? When the tablet is partially folded, a keyboard can be attached to the bottom half, thus transforming it into a 12.5-inch laptop.
The foldable panel is a Pantone validated 17.3-inch QHD (2560 x 1920) display with a 4:3 aspect ratio, 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio, 100% DCI-P3 color gamut, 0.2 ms response time, 90 Hz refresh rate, and Dolby Vision support. Other known features include a 12th-Gen Intel Core i7 U-series processor, Intel Xe graphics, up to 16GB of LPDDR5 RAM, 1TB PCIe 4.0 SSD, Harman Kardon quad speakers, a built-in 5MP webcam, and a 75Wh battery with 65W USB-C charging. There’s no word yet on pricing, but based on similar devices, it should retail at or around $2,499 USD.
