Dual-screen Asus ZenBook Duo UX481 launching this month with Core i7 and GeForce MX250 graphics
In our review of the 15.6-inch ZenBook Pro Duo last year, we mentioned that the unique ScreenPad Plus might work better on smaller form factors for travel purposes where the secondary display would come in handy the most. Fast-forward to 2020 and Asus will be doing just that with its new smaller ZenBook Duo UX481. This subnotebook integrates a 12.6-inch ScreenPad Plus touchscreen between the keyboard and main 14-inch display. ScreenPad Plus should not be confused with the standard ScreenPad that is still shipping on some VivoBook laptops.
The main display will be Pantone-calibrated at factory for 90 percent sRGB coverage in order to appeal to content creators. The quad-core Core i7-10510U Comet Lake-U, GeForce MX250 GPU, 1 TB PCIe SSD, and 16 GB of LPDDR3 RAM make up the rest of the specifications. Its internal 70 Wh battery will be quite large for a 14-inch form factor likely because it will need to power two individual screens. Asus is promising up to 22 hours of video playback based on MobileMark 2014.
Full specifications and other details can be found on the official product page for the ZenBook Duo UX481 here. Expect our full review on the system in the coming weeks.
