The new ZenBook 13 is one of the lightest laptops weighing just 1.1kgs, and it comes with an OLED display. It will be offered with either the Ryzen 7 5700U or the Ryzen 5 5500U processor. Meanwhile, the OLED panel comes with a full-HD resolution, 100% coverage of DCI-P3 color gamut, 400-nits max brightness, VESA DisplayHDR 500, and is Pantone Validated. ASUS claims that the ZenBook 13 can offer a battery life of up to 16-hours using its 67Whr battery. Notably, the notebook doesn’t come with a standard 3.5mm audio jack, so you’ll need to rely on USB Type-C for audio. This is similar to what we saw on the ZenBook Flip S.

Moving to the VivoBook series, the VivoBook S S14 will only be offered with the AMD Ryzen 5 5500U that comes with integrated AMD Radeon RX Vega 7 graphics, up to 8GB of RAM, and 1TB M.2 SSD with the provision of a secondary M.2 SSD drive.

The VivoBook Ultra K14/K15, as its name suggests, will be offered in 14-inch and 15-inch sizes, and both will be available with either the Ryzen 5 5500U or the Ryzen 7 5700U processors. These also come with up to 8GB of RAM and 512GB M.2 SSD with the option of a secondary SATA HDD.

Next is the VivoBook Flip 14, which is also available with either the Ryzen 5 5500U or the Ryzen 7 5700U processors, along with the lower-end Ryzen 3 5300U. ASUS claims that the 14-inch NanoEdge display has slim bezels, and overall, the laptop has a footprint that is similar to a 13-inch laptop. The touchscreen on the VivoBook Flip 14 also supports the ASUS Pen stylus, while the pen holder can stick onto the lid of the laptop.

Lastly, we have the VivoBook 15 and VivoBook 17 which offer similar features in different sizes. The 17-inch model notably comes with a bigger battery and more RAM.

All the new laptops will be available via offline stores across India except for the VivoBook 17 which will be available both offline and online via Flipkart.
