ASUS Officially Launches ZenBook Duo 14 and ZenBook 13 OLED in the Philippines

ASUS has officially launched its new ZenBook Duo 14 (UX482) and ZenBook 13 OLED (UX325) in the Philippines. Both laptops, which were initially announced a few months ago at CES 2021, are the latest iterations of last year’s models with significant upgrades to their design, features, and/or specifications.

The new ZenBook Duo 14 (UX482) features the same design as its predecessor, the UX481, including the aluminum lid with the signature radial design, the magnesium alloy chassis, and Celestial Blue finish. It also features a new ErgoLift hinge that now automatically tilts ScreenPad Plus up a few degrees to improve its viewing angle. The tilting ScreenPad Plus also enables the implementation of the Active Aerodynamic System (AAS) Plus cooling that takes in air via the space between the chassis and ScreenPad Plus then exhausts it to the rear of the chassis near the main display. The ScreenPad Plus now also features the new ScreenXpert 2.0 software that introduces the new ScreenXpert Control Center and Control Panel app, among other new functions. The ZenBook Duo 14 (UX482) is also equipped with either an 11th generation Intel Core i7 processor coupled with an NVIDIA GeForce MX450 GPU or an 11th gen Core i5 processor with Intel’s new Iris Xe graphics.

The ZenBook Duo 14 (UX482) will be available in two variants – one with an Intel Core i7-1165G7, NVIDIA GeForce MX450, and a 1TB M.2 NVMe PCIe 3.0 x4 SSD priced at PHP 99,995 and another with an Intel Core i5-1135G7, Intel Iris Xe graphics, and 512GB of SSD storage at PHP 79,995.

To help maintain the quality of its OLED panel, the ZenBook 13 OLED (UX325) comes with ASUS OLED Care, which is screensaver to not only prevent OLED burn-in but also extend the panel’s overall lifespan and the battery life of the laptop. The ZenBook 13 OLED (UX325) also comes equipped with an 11th generation Intel Core i5 processor, Intel Iris Xe graphics, 8GB of RAM, and 512GB of M.2 NVMe PCIE 3.0 x4 SSD storage.
