ASUS Announces All-New ZenBook Pro 15 (UX535)

    TAIPEI, Taiwan, September 24, 2020ASUS today announced ZenBook Pro 15 (UX535), the latest model in the ZenBook Pro series of ultraportable creative laptops, and also the world's smallest 15.6-inch laptop to feature a 4K UHD OLED touchscreen

    The elegant ZenBook Pro 15 allows casual creators to work on their projects anywhere, thanks to a compact design that's enabled by the slim bezels on the bright and clear NanoEdge 4K UHD OLED touchscreen. A wide 100% DCI-P3 color gamut ensures vivid hues, and the 88% screen-to-body ratio delivers expansive visuals.

    ZenBook Pro 15 is powered by 10th Generation Intel® Core i7 and i5 H-series CPUs with 45W, 16 GB of RAM and up to an NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1650 Ti discrete GPU for powerful on-the-go creative performance, with up to a 1 TB PCIe® 3.0 x4 SDD for ultrafast storage.

    For enhanced productivity ZenBook Pro 15 includes the latest ASUS ScreenPad, a 5.65-inch secondary color touchscreen built into the glass-covered touchpad that allows easy interaction via the new and intuitive smartphone-like ScreenXpert 2.0 interface.

    Designed for on-the-go convenience, ZenBook Pro 15 features a high-capacity 96 Wh battery and comprehensive set of I/O ports, including Thunderbolt 3 USB-C®, USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-A, standard HDMI 2.0, an audio jack, and an SD card reader. The precision-engineered ErgoLift hinge creates a comfortable typing position, and there's an IR camera for hands-free face login with Windows Hello. WiFi 6 (802.11ax) offers ultrafast wireless connectivity, enhanced by ASUS WiFi Master Premium technology for rock-solid connection stability.

    Visual brilliance in vibrant color

    Built to enable effortless on-the-go creativity, ZenBook Pro 15 is the world's smallest 15.6-inch laptop with a 4K UHD OLED touchscreen – and with an ultra-compact footprint enabled by the slim-bezel NanoEdge design that creates an 88% screen-to-body ratio for an immersive viewing experience. This bright, clear 450-nit display also has a superb 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio for deep blacks with DisplayHDR 500 True Black certification, wide 178° viewing angles for easy collaboration, and a wide 100% DCI-P3 color gamut for cinema-grade colors, making it an ideal laptop for creative projects. The 0.2 ms ultrafast response time also ensures blur-free action content and smooth scrolling.

    Color accuracy is usually represented by a 2D color-gamut diagram that shows how colors are faithfully reproduced, but only at a particular brightness level. However, since the ability to reproduce colors accurately at different levels of brightness is crucial, ASUS OLED panels are calibrated to accurately reproduce colors in a 3D color volume — showing what the panel would reproduce at 100% DCI-P3 color gamut regardless of brightness level. This ensures all content is displayed accurately and as intended by its creators, not just at full brightness but at any brightness setting. This is especially important for HDR content. As a result, our OLED touchscreen color volume is up to 1.6X greater than a traditional LCD.

    With the extreme contrast and accurate color reproduction at any level, everything looks crisp and vibrant – even within darker content. This helps with eye comfort, too: users can dial down the brightness, without losing contrast and color vibrancy, resulting in reduced blue-light emission. Plus, ZenBook Pro 15’s OLED display also manages the blue-light ratio to reduce potentially-harmful emissions by up to 70%, with certification from TÜV Rheinland for low blue light and flicker-free visuals — promising greater care for eyes, ever after many hours of use.

    Amazing performance

    The up to 10th Generation Intel Core i7 H-series processor in ZenBook Pro 15, backed with up to 16 GB RAM, delivers enhanced performance for any creative tasks, and the up to NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650Ti discrete GPU offers desktop-level visual performance — up to 2X faster than the previous GTX 1050 generation.

    ZenBook Pro 15 also features ultrafast storage, with up to a 1 TB PCIe 3.0 x4 SSD or a PCIe SSD accelerated with 32 GB of Intel Optane Memory H10. ZenBook Pro 15 delivers the all-round performance needed to blitz through even the most demanding creative workloads.

    The intelligent touchpad, reinvented

    ZenBook Pro 15 features the new and improved ScreenPad, an interactive secondary 5.65-inch color touchscreen that upgrades the traditional laptop experience to enhance creativity and everyday productivity. Its intuitive new smartphone-like ScreenXpert 2.0 interface makes it easy to manage tasks and create seamless, personalized multitasking workflows.

    ScreenPad is supported by a series of handy ASUS utility apps to boost productivity, along with a raft of quick controls that improve the interactions with the main display. ScreenPad is also intelligent, automatically fitting many apps into its touchscreen, while it’s effortless to add apps to ScreenPad for instant access.

    ScreenPad also functions as a standard glass-covered precision touchpad, with intelligent palm rejection and four-finger smart-gesture support.

    Superb user experience

    ZenBook Pro 15 weighs just 1.8 kg and is 17.8 mm slim. It features a precision-engineered ErgoLift hinge that automatically raises the rear of the laptop slightly when the screen is opened, tilting the keyboard to the optimum typing angle. This action also lifts the chassis for optimized cooling and enhanced audio quality.

    The comprehensive I/O capabilities include a Thunderbolt 3 USB-C port, a USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-A port, a standard HDMI port, an audio jack, and an SD card reader.

    WiFi 6 offers wireless connectivity with speeds that are up to 3X faster than WiFi 5, and it's made even better by ASUS WiFi Master Premium technology: this includes ASUS WiFi RangeBoost, which uses multiple antennas to enhance signal throughput for maximum signal range; ASUS WiFi Stabilizer to filter out wireless interference; and ASUS WiFi SmartConnect to automatically select the best WiFi source.
