ASUS ZenBook 13 OLED (UX325): True-to-Life Colors




OLED displays are popular in high-end TVs, smartphones, and wearables. This type of display offers richer colors and deeper blacks than your typical LCD, making them ideal for multimedia consumption. But what if you can have those benefits in an ultrabook? Well, that’s what ASUS did for the ZenBook 13 OLED (UX325).

Rich colors with deep blacks

OLED stands for organic light-emitting diode and is different from an LCD as it doesn’t use a backlight and emits its own light instead. If the image to be produced is black, the pixels simply turn off, resulting in deep blacks and high contrast, only lighting up when it needs to produce colors. The absence of the backlight also makes the panel thinner and more efficient.

OLED laptops are no longer new, and several models have been released in the past, but what makes OLED technology more exciting is if it is used in a compact ultrabook, making it a great device for work and entertainment. Such is the case of the ASUS ZenBook 13 OLED (UX325).

The ASUS ZenBook 13 OLED (UX325) is equipped with a 13.3-inch OLED Full HD display. The screen might be small for some, but since it has a thing four-sided NanoEdge design, you’re getting plenty of screen real estate with thin bezels for a good screen-to-body ratio of 88%. It also has a 100% DCI-P3 color gamut (133% sRGB), Pantone-Validated, supports HDR, and can produce brightness at 400 nits.

This means that you’re getting a screen that is immersive, vibrant, and color-accurate, which is great for a wide variety of tasks, including photo editing and graphics work that use Pantone Matching System (PMS) Colors. You can also work for longer hours without harming your eyes, thanks to its TÜV Rheinland certification, which lowers the blue-light levels for better eye care.

And when it’s time to unwind, you can play your favorite movie or TV series on it, and you can be sure that you’re getting color-rich pictures with great contrast. The sound quality won’t be as the ASUS ZenBook 13 OLED (UX325)’s audio system is certified by audio specialists Harman Kardon to ensure immersive, crystal-clear sound for communications or entertainment.

Compact, ultralight all-metal design

The ASUS ZenBook 13 OLED (UX325) boasts a compact, thin and ultralight all-metal design, measuring 13.9mm thin and weighing in at 1.14 kg. It doesn’t take up much desk space, easy to lug around, and will easily slip inside a bag.

Although compact, the ASUS ZenBook 13 OLED (UX325) is easy to type on thanks to the Edge-to-Edge Keyboard, which takes up almost the ultrabook’s entire width to accommodate larger keys with decent spacing. To add to its functionality, it has function keys, while the wide ASUS NumberPad 2.0 provides an illuminated numeric keypad.


 

 

To make typing more comfortable, optimize cooling, and enhance the audio quality, the ASUS ZenBook 13 OLED (UX325) uses a precision-engineered ErgoLift hinge that automatically lifts the rear of the ultrabook when it’s opened.

When it comes to its toughness, the ASUS ZenBook 13 OLED (UX325) has been tested to meet the ultra-demanding MIL-STD-810G U.S. military standard for reliability and durability. Tests include drop test (free fall from 100mm while powered on), altitude test (cabin pressure equivalent to 15,000 feet), low-temperature test (up to -33 C), and vibration test (5-500 Hz, 3 axes).

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.
