ASUS Introduce ZenBook S UX392

ASUS ZenBook S UX392 has the world’s thinnest display bezels, discrete graphics and 8th Gen Intel® Core™ i7 Processor! A true combination of beauty and power, this ultraportable delivers performance and portability into an impossibly small chassis. Its 13.9-inch FHD frameless four-sided NanoEdge display is the most impressive to date, featuring the world’s slimmest bezels and 97% screen-to-body ratio, which is the largest in the world. Powered by the latest 8th Gen Intel® Core™ quad-core processor, ZenBook S UX392 pushes the boundaries of what’s possible inside a 13-inch chassis. Even with very compact body, there’s ample space for 1TB of PCIe x4 SSD storage, and the 50Wh battery provides up to 15 hours of battery life.

The new ASUS ZenBook S is the most beautiful and powerful ultrabook to the date. Not only crafted for perfection, ZenBook S UX392 also comes with 8th Gen Intel® Core™ i7 Processor that provides a no-compromise performance,” said Jimmy Lin, ASUS Regional Director Southeast Asia. “All of those are packed in a small, compact, and beautiful body that will catch everyone’s attention.”

Powered by 8th Gen Intel® Core™ CPU

ASUS ZenBook S UX392 is powered by 8th Gen Intel® Core™ i7 Processor, the latest and most advanced processor for ultrabook. With it’s 14nm architecture and quad-core configuration, the Intel® Core™ i7-8565U processor within ZenBook S UX392 comes with fast 4,6GHz processing speed, leaving a no-compromise performance for it’s user. The power-efficient integrated Intel HD Graphics also provides longer battery life, making mobile computing experience better than ever.

Intel’s 8th Generation of mobile processors have been a staple for the ZenBook series for over a year, and ZenBook S UX392 takes this step further with up to the 8th generation Core i7 CPU paired with up to 16GB of RAM. The Core i7 configurations benefit from four cores and eight threads for smooth performance, allowing for complex workloads, like video encoding, or aggressive multitasking, like processing photos while switching between productivity apps, emails and web browsing.

Processing performance is paired with upgraded graphics capabilities made possible by the MX150 discrete graphics. To get the most out of the CPU and GPU, ample storage is required. With ZenBook S UX392, large media files and burgeoning PowerPoint decks don’t have to vie for space or face cold cloud storage when installing new applications because up to a 1TB PCIe x4 SSD maxes out ZenBook S UX392 on storage speed and capacity.

Adding all those components into this 12.9-mm thick package required a bit of ingenuity from the ASUS engineering team. To ensure no space was wasted, the metal chassis is CNC-milled from a block of aluminum, allowing the lid to be carved out, complete with the complex cuts surrounding the keyboard, without creating any unnecessary voids. Machining allows the walls to remain thinner while still leaving enough material in key areas to avoid sacrificing strength, and shaving thickness in any area means more room for the components.

The world’s slimmest display bezel and 97% screen-to-body ratio

ZenBook S UX392 takes narrow bezels to the extreme with a 13.9-inch FHD display, surrounded by the impressive four-sided ASUS NanoEdge bezels that deliver the industry’s biggest screen-to-body ratio at 97%. A 2.5mm border frame the sides of the display. The thickest upper bezel accommodates the HD webcam, and also serves as a tab for lifting the laptop’s lid. Finding the tab on the lid is easier this way, allowing the user to pull the lid up in one smooth motion rather than searching for a barely-there indent on the front edge. It’s a small change that makes all the difference for day-to-day use, and was worth the effort of changing the shape of the glass on the display and altering the design of the laptop’s lid. Despite the larger display, ZenBook S UX392 manages to retain a smaller physical footprint (3.16 x 1.95 x 0.12cm) compared to most 13-inch laptops.

Power and beauty

The ZenBook series always epitomizes ASUS’s dedication to laptop design, and is built on the premise that the finest ultraportables are a blend of style and power; refining the definition of the ultimate ultraportable. ZenBook S UX392 once again pushes the boundaries of design to deliver a truly portable, thin and light laptop without sacrificing performance and resistance. It also meets the demanding MIL-STD-810G military standards for durability, being torture-tested in harsh environments including extremes of altitude, humidity and temperature.

One of the most striking changes for the ZenBook S UX392 is its visual appearance. It now comes in trendy Utopia Blue, a totally new hue. The subtle silvery blue makes it stand out, while the paler color shows off the signature concentric Zen ripples on the lid beautifully. Utopia Blue offsets the Rose Gold accents and diamond-cut edges for an added touch of elegance.

Convenient connectivity

Despite its compact dimensions, nothing about ZenBook S UX392 feels cramped. The backlit keyboard spans almost the full width of the laptop. And while ultraportable keyboards are often shallower because of their slim design, ZenBook S UX392 actually features a slightly longer 1.4mm of travel than its predecessor making it more comfortable for typing. Underneath is a roomy touchpad with an integrated fingerprint sensor that makes for quick and convenient login via Windows Hello.

With no compromises on connections, ZenBook S UX392 offers the convenience of standard USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-A port on the side. Lots of super slim laptops only provide USB Type-C™ (USB-C™) ports, making this connection type a rarity, but it’s extremely useful for plugging in USB drives along with other peripherals that haven’t yet made the jump to the more modern USB-C. In addition to its standard USB port, ZenBook S UX392 has two USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-C ports, with up to 10Gbps of peak interface bandwidth.

Either can be used to hook up to an external display or charge up the battery. The 50Wh battery is enough to provide up to 15 hours of use, and if need be, fast charging brings support for powering up quickly on the go. The USB ports are joined by a 3.5-mm audio combo jack allowing utilization of any choice of headset, and a MicroSD card slot is provided for quickly pulling photos and videos off of a variety of devices.
