Asus' Intel 11th-gen Core-based notebook line-up contains a ZenBook Flip S, for the first time in quite a while. This new variant (the UX371) features the new OLED NanoEdge PANTONE-validated panel as many of its new siblings. It also has Thunderbolt 4 and stands out with a premium build and an accented colorway.

Asus has augmented its new notebook/2-in-1 line-up with the UX371, or ZenBook Flip S, a product name that has not seen an update since 2017. However, it is back with a 4K UHD OLED NanoEdge display rated to cover 100% of the DCI-P3 color-space. This screen also supports the VESA DisplayHDR 500 True Black standard, and is TÜV Rheinland-certified to help conserve eye health.

The high-end display, like that of the ZenBook Flip 13, also supports the Asus Pen. This 13-inch convertible is powered by up to 11th-gen Tiger Lake Intel Evo Core i7 processors and Iris Xe graphics. On its introduction, Asus noted that its build has been the first to be certified as designed for these freshly-launched internals.

They are packaged in a "premium" chassis finished in Jade Black with Red Copper accents. This detail is "diamond-cut" - a challenge to the HP Spectre x360's level of style, perhaps? The new ZenBook Flip S also has options on up to 16GB of RAM and PCIe 3.0 x4 SSDs with up to 1TB in capacity.

Its star I/O may be its 2 USB type C ports with Thunderbolt 4, which are present alongside 1 USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type A port and 1 HDMI port. Asus claims that the (albeit non-specific) "high" capacity of the new notebook's battery may help it last up to 15 hours between charges.

The ZenBook Flip S UX371 will start to become available from October 2020 in North America.
