TAIPEI, Taiwan, May 10, 2022 — ASUS today announced Zenbook S 13 OLED (UM5302), a 13.3-inch ultraportable 2.8K OLED laptop that weighs a mere 1 kilogram, making it the world's lightest in its class[1].

The ultralight Zenbook S 13 OLED is an elegant and powerful companion for those with busy lifestyles. It packs a lot of advanced technology into its super-thin 14.9 mm magnesium-aluminum alloy chassis, including up to an AMD Ryzen™ 7 6800U Mobile Processor, AMD Radeon™ graphics, WiFi 6E and a 1 TB PCIe® 4.0 SSD.

Finished in one of four sophisticated new colors — Ponder Blue, Aqua Celadon, Vestige Beige and Refined White — Zenbook S 13 OLED is designed to stand out, yet it blends in anywhere.

The clear and responsive 16:10 2.8K OLED HDR NanoEdge touchscreen is Dolby Vision-certified, PANTONE® Validated for superb color fidelity, VESA DisplayHDR™ True Black 500 certified for the deepest blacks, and has an ultra-vivid DCI-P3 color gamut for a superlative viewing experience. The touchscreen supports a 4096-pressure-level stylus, such as the ASUS Pen 2.0[2]. Enhanced eye care is ensured by the TÜV Rheinland-certified low blue-light emissions.

Immersive multi-dimensional sound is provided by a Harman Kardon-certified Dolby Atmos® audio system with a powerful smart amplifier.

Premium features ensure an unrivaled user experience, including ASUS AI Noise Cancelation Technology for clearer conference calls; ASUS Antibacterial Guard for improved hygiene; an ASUS ErgoSense keyboard for superb comfort; and ASUS NumberPad 2.0 for easy data entry.

 

World's lightest 13.3" OLED laptop

The premium Zenbook S 13 OLED is lighter than any other 13.3-inch laptop in its class, with a sleek 1 kg-light, 14.9 mm-thin chassis made entirely from durable magnesium-aluminum alloy. It’s the ultimate ultraportable laptop for effortless on-the-go productivity and creativity.

The all-new contemporary design features our new monogram logo on the lid, and there's a choice of four fresh and modern colors that make Zenbook S 13 OLED really stand out from the crowd, without being brash. Ponder Blue is a darker color scheme inspired by silent nights spent alone. It projects professional wisdom and introspection. Refined White conveys a sense of purity and cleanliness. This premium and understated shade is simple, yet sophisticated. Aqua Celadon is a subtle pale-green wash, commonly encountered on porcelain, and symbolizing purity, clarity and elegance. Finally, Vestige Beige is light, uplifting choice redolent of handcrafted stoneware. The classic, tactile finish embodies a sense of timeless beauty.

With its long-lasting high-capacity 67 Wh battery and up to 19-hour battery life, Zenbook S 13 OLED needs fewer trips to the power outlet when the user is out and about. And when it’s time for a top-up, the fast-charge technology can take it to 60% capacity in as little as 49 minutes, so there’s no need to break the flow. With ASUS USB-C® Easy Charge, it can be quickly charged using a USB-C Power Delivery-certified charger, or topped up with any standard USB-C charger such as an airline charger, a portable charger or a power bank.

 

Premium sound and vision

Any visuals will look better on Zenbook S 13 OLED’s gorgeous 2.8K OLED HDR Dolby Vision touchscreen. The expansive 16:10 aspect ratio provides a bigger workspace, and the four-sided NanoEdge design with ultraslim bezels creates more screen area for an immersive viewing experience. The super-bright PANTONE® Validated screen is color-accurate with a 100% DCI-P3 gamut for ultra-vivid colors, and is VESA DisplayHDR True Black 500 certified for deeper blacks and ultrahigh contrast. It’s also TÜV Rheinland-certified for eye care, so the user's eyes will stay comfortable even during long viewing sessions. The touchscreen supports a high-precision MPP 2.0 stylus — such as the ASUS Pen 2.0 — with 4096 pressure levels, allowing intuitive and natural input for notes, sketches or drawing.

For unrivaled audio quality, Zenbook S 13 OLED has a stereo sound system certified by the audio experts at Harman Kardon, powered by a smart amplifier that's up to 3.5X louder than a standard amplifier using the same speakers. It delivers powerful, immersive sound that’s crystal-clear for superbly immersive entertainment and communications. The immersive sound of Dolby Atmos indulges the listener in their favorite entertainment with sound that moves all around with breathtaking realism in music, movies and TV.

 

Premium performance

Zenbook S 13 OLED is a dependable, high-performance companion, powerfully equipped with up to an AMD Ryzen 7 6800U Mobile Processor, up to 16 GB of fast RAM, and AMD Radeon mobile graphics, so users can confidently tackle any work or leisure task, wherever they are. Its ultrafast up to 1 TB PCIe® 4.0 SSD ensures fast boot times and instant app loads.

Zenbook S 13 OLED features the latest WiFi 6E that loads online content in the blink of an eye, enhanced by the exclusive ASUS WiFi Master Premium fine-tuning technologies and software features that help deliver speed, stability and wide coverage. ASUS WiFi Stabilizer filters out wireless interference, so users will always enjoy the fastest possible speeds. Via the MyASUS app, users can also enable WiFi SmartConnect to automatically connect to the best WiFi signal and known mobile hotspots, or utilize TaskFirst to select tasks that you wish to prioritize for internet access.

 

Premium experience

Zenbook S 13 OLED is designed to offer a premium user experience, with exclusive features and technologies that make everything easier to accomplish.

With the increase in popularity of remote working and video conferencing, Zenbook S 13 OLED implements ASUS AI Noise-Cancelation Technology to ensure the best experience. This employs machine learning in order to isolate unwanted noise from human speech. The ClearVoice Mic feature in the MyASUS app can filter out ambient noise, and normalize all individual voices in Multi-presenter mode from different positions for optimum group conference-call quality. The ClearVoice Speaker feature filters out all ambient noise apart from human speech — so users can hear what everyone else is saying.

The surface of any laptop harbors thousands of potentially harmful bacteria. To keep Zenbook S 13 OLED hygienic, it’s protected by ASUS Antibacterial Guard[3] — a special surface treatment that keeps the bugs at bay. In fact, Antibacterial Guard has been scientifically proven[4] to inhibit the growth of bacteria by more than 99% over a 24-hour period, ensuring the surfaces of the laptop stay clean and sanitary for longer and reducing the spread of potentially harmful bacteria via contact.

Zenbook S 13 OLED also features the new full-size ASUS ErgoSense keyboard for the most comfortable typing experience ever. Its 19.05 mm key pitch is the same as a desktop keyboard, for superb typing comfort and accuracy. The 0.2 mm key-cap dish is matches the shape of fingertips, and the long 1.4 mm key travel lets uses type with optimal force. For easy data entry, there's the ASUS NumberPad 2.0, an LED-illuminated numeric keypad integrated in the touchpad.
