ASUS All-New Zenbook 14 OLED UX3405 Coming Soon

Eager to invest in a new laptop? Well, it may be worth waiting just a little while longer, as ASUS has announced the all-new Zenbook 14 OLED (UX3405). Designed to be a premium ultraportable laptop, these gorgeous new Zenbook 14 OLEDs come with an extended-life 75 Wh battery, the latest Intel Core Ultra 9 processors and Intel Arc graphics, so they should be very capable systems indeed!

There’s a good range of I/O included too, such as a pair of Thunderbolt 4, USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-A, HDMI 2.1 (TMDS) and a 3.5 mm audio jack; take that Apple!

One of the key features has to be the gorgeously vivid 3K ASUS Lumina OLED 120 Hz touchscreen, which is sure to amaze with its high colour accuracy, resolution and refresh rate. Plus there’s a powerful new super-linear speaker system too.

Premium ultraportable design

Zenbook 14 OLED delivers uncompromising mobility with its sleek, lightweight and sturdy all-metal design and enhanced-lifespan 75 Wh battery. At just 14.9 mm thin and weighing only 1.2 kg, the elegant chassis is around 10% more compact than the previous generation.

The specially designed battery supports up to 20% more charging cycles than previous models, protecting the user’s investment and helping to maximize the laptop’s life. It also offers up to 15 hours of unplugged operation for all-day productivity. USB-C Easy Charge makes it simple to recharge from any suitable USB-C adapter, power outlet or power bank.

Premium performance

Zenbook 14 OLED is an Intel Evo Edition laptop that features top-tier AI-powered Intel Core Ultra processors with built-in Intel Arc graphics. Intel Core Ultra processors include a dedicated engine to help unlock AI experiences, deliver the next level in immersive graphics, and enable high-performance low-power processing, so users can work, game and create while enjoying long battery life. Combined with the laptop’s ultrafast up to 1 TB SSD storage, 32 GB RAM and WiFi 6E (802.11ax)6, this means that users will wait less and be able work faster, wherever they are.

The ultra-vivid 3K (2880×1800) ASUS Lumina OLED 120 Hz display makes every moment incredible, with its up to 600-nit brightness, web-friendly 16:10 aspect ratio, and 87% screen-to-body ratio. And adaptive sync automatically adjusts the refresh rate for always-smooth visuals.

Despite its ultra-compact form factor, Zenbook 14 OLED includes a comprehensive set of full-size high-speed I/O ports—including two Thunderbolt 4 ports, USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-A, HDMI 2.1 (TMDS) and a convenient 3.5 mm audio jack—so users don’t need to carry dongles or adapters around with them.

Premium user experience

Zenbook 14 OLED is designed with the user firmly in mind, incorporating a range of advanced features designed to enhance their mobile lifestyle. Whatever the user is listening to, the powerful, crystal-clear sound delivered by the new super-linear speakers, smart amplifier and ASUS Audio Booster in the Harman Kardon-certified audio system will give their ears a treat with the multidimensional Dolby Atmos sound.

When late-night deadlines approach, the new quiet ASUS ErgoSense keyboard reduces aural distractions to a minimum while offering a supremely comfortable typing experience, thanks to the fine-tuned key pitch, dished key caps and ergonomic key travel.

To guard the user’s privacy, the FHD IR camera has a physical shutter, and the camera delivers a superlative video conferencing experience, enhanced by AI noise cancellation and built-in video enhancements for crystal-clear audio and crisp video.

Made for the Earth

ASUS is committed to do more with less through Zenbook. This device aims to minimize its environmental impact across the entire product lifecycle, from material use and manufacturing, through to assembly, use, and end of life. We have mitigated its carbon footprint by incorporating up to 50% post-consumer-recycled (PCR) materials and designing eco-conscious packaging that’s 100% recyclable. Zenbook 14 OLED also exceeds the ENERGY STAR power-efficiency standard by 50%.

To maximize the lifespan of the laptop—and hence improve sustainability—strict US military-grade testing under a stringent test regime ensures outstanding durability.

As a child still in my 30's (but not for long), I spend my day combining my love of music and movies with a life-long passion for gaming, from arcade classics and retro consoles to the latest high-end PC and console games. So it's no wonder I write about tech and test the latest hardware while I enjoy my hobbies!
