Flexible laptops aren’t exactly novel after the Intel Horseshoe Bend concept and the Lenovo X1 Fold introduced at CES 2020. However, Asus really surprised me with the ZenBook 17 Fold OLED as a seemingly normal-looking laptop but then it lifted the keyboard away to reveal a foldable laptop.

 

The Asus Zenbook 17 Fold OLED introduced at CES 2022 is essentially a 17.3-inch OLED tablet that folds up into a 12.5-inch booklet. It’s quite a bit bigger than the 13.3-inch Lenovo X1 Fold I saw last year, and obviously, the bigger screen makes it that much more usable for multiple applications at the same time.

The larger size also allows Asus to introduce a full-sized magnetic keyboard that seamlessly snaps onto one-half of the device. From there, you can tilt up the display on the other half of the device and use it like any other laptop. Alternatively, you could have the ZenBook 17 Fold OLED propped up and use the keyboard detached from the device since it connects over Bluetooth and have full access to the 17.3-inch display.

 

That 17.3-inch display isn’t impressive just because it’s flexible, either. It features a 2560 x 1920 resolution, a 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio, 0.2 ms response time, 90Hz refresh frame, Vesa DisplayHDR 500 certified, and Pantone validated for color accuracy.

Internally, the Asus ZenBook 17 Fold OLED is equipped with the latest 12th Gen Intel CPU paired with up to 16 GB LPDDR5 memory and 1TB PCIe 4.0×4 NVMe M.2 SSD.

There’s no pricing or availability information for the Asus ZenBook 17 Fold OLED yet.
