ASUS is continuing its trend towards fitting its new mid to higher end laptops with OLED displays. Its new Zenbook 14X, which comes in both standard and convertible configurations, are fitted with high resolution OLED panels that deliver reduced blue light and better image quality than LCD panels.

ASUS is in the midst of rolling out a series of new laptops fitted with OLED panels, continuing a recent trend for the brand. Earlier today, it launched the ProArt StudioBook 16 and StudioBook Pro 16 laptops, both of which feature OLED displays. Joining these is the new ASUS Zenbook 14X that comes both as a standard laptop and as a 2-in-1 convertible dubbed the Zenbook 14 Flip OLED.

The new Zenbook 14X models come with a choice of 16:10 OLED panels with brightness rated up to 550 nits. The first is a 2.8K OLED with a 90 Hz refresh rate or a 4K OLED HDR panel with a 60 Hz refresh rate. Both panels cover 100 percent of the DCI-P3 color gamut and offer an ultra-fast 0.2 ms response time -- they also producing 70 percent lower blue light emissions than a typical LCD panel. They both also support stylus input and include a signature ASUS FHD+ ScreenPad trackpad.

ASUS has fitted the Zenbook 14X with 11th-gen Intel processors up to a Core i7 and mated with up to 16 GB of RAM and up to 1 TB of SSD storage along with a variant that also supports an additional 32 GB of Intel Optane memory.

Connectivity is provided by two USB-C ports with support for Thunderbolt 4, one USB Type-A 3.2 Gen 2 port, one HDMI 2.0b port, one 3.5 mm combo audio jack and a microSD card reader.

I have been writing about consumer technology over the past ten years, previously with the former MacNN and Electronista, and now Notebookcheck since 2017. My first computer was an Apple ][c and this sparked a passion for Apple, but also technology in general. In the past decade, I’ve become increasingly platform agnostic and love to get my hands on and explore as much technology as I can get my hand on. Whether it is Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, Linux, Nintendo, Xbox, or PlayStation, each has plenty to offer and has given me great joy exploring them all. I was drawn to writing about tech because I love learning about the latest devices and also sharing whatever insights my experience can bring to the site and its readership.
