Users can treat their eyes to the gorgeous visuals on the 3.2K 120 Hz OLED NanoEdge touchscreen with its Corning Gorilla Glass NBT scratch-resistant covering, and capture all their greatest ideas using the optional ASUS Pen 2.0, an MPP 2.0 stylus with 4096 pressure levels. Built with hygiene in mind, ASUS Vivobook S 16 Flip OLED uses ASUS Antimicrobial Guard Plus to inhibit the growth of viruses and bacteria by up to 99% on frequently-touched surfaces. Its environmental credentials are solid, too: it uses 30% post-consumer recycled (PCR) plastics in its construction and is shipped in 100% recyclable packaging.
Vivobook S 16 Flip OLED is powered by up to a 13th Gen Intel Core i9-13900H processor with 14 cores that makes every task easier, whether it’s streaming, browsing, editing, video chatting, or just taking care of business at home. Capable of being boosted up to a CPU thermal design power (TDP) of 45 watts, it’s the fastest-performing processor generation to date and is accompanied by up to Intel Iris Xe graphics.
To unleash the full power of the processor, the ASUS IceCool thermal technology in Vivobook S 16 Flip OLED uses up to 8 mm and 6 mm heat pipes, and an IceBlade fan that efficiently accelerates heat transfer. And with up to 16 GB of RAM, a 1 TB SSD storage, Vivobook S 16 Flip OLED always makes daily work easy and convenient.
WiFi 6E (802.11ax) allows users to load online content in the blink of an eye, and it’s made even better by ASUS WiFi Master technology, which includes ASUS WiFi SmartConnect that automatically selects the best WiFi source, so the laptop connects seamlessly to the best WiFi signal and known mobile hotspots.
A visual feast
Visual enjoyment is assured with the gorgeous up to 16:10 3.2K (3200 x 2000) 120 Hz / 0.2 ms OLED NanoEdge touchscreen on Vivobook S 16 Flip OLED, which is covered with tough Corning Gorilla Glass NBT for enhanced resistance to scratches and fingerprints. It brings ideas to life with its vibrant 100% DCI-P3 colour gamut and expansive 85.6% screen-to-body ratio.
The PANTONE Validated and VESA DisplayHDR True Black 500 certification means that it delivers accurate colours and shows the deepest possible blacks. And with eye-care certification from both SGS and TÜV Rheinland, eyes are well-protected with low blue-light emissions.
There’s also a colour sensor that detects ambient light levels and automatically adjusts the brightness and colour temperature of the screen to provide the best-looking image according to the surroundings. Additionally, an auto-dimming feature helps maximize the lifespan of the OLED display.
