The UX425 is a version of the ZenBook 14 touted to come with either Ryzen 4000 or Intel Core i7-1065G7 processors. The latter variant has just appeared as a listing on Scorptec and Mwave, online stores that operate in the Australian market. They both affirm that this Asus PC has 16GB of RAM and 2 Thunderbolt 3 type C ports.

The ZenBook 14 UX425 is a 2020 notebook that has been confirmed to exist in an offhand way by its maker Asus. Nevertheless, it (along with its 13-inch counterpart) is yet to see anything like a formal product launch. This is a little odd, as it is now apparent that it has been released to the Australian market.

It has shown up in new retail listings with the sellers Mwave and Scorptec, which confirm its Core i7-1065G7 CPU option. It is also described as a machine with 16GB RAM, 512GB of M.2 PCIe SSD storage, an FHD resolution for its 14-inch screen, Intel Iris Plus Graphics, Bluetooth 5 and Wi-Fi 6. It is also equipped with an HD IR webcam, with which its Windows 10 Pro OS could use the Hello authentication system.

The UX425 is also now revealed to have a 67 watt-hour (Whr) 4-cell battery, which can charge at up to 65W with its in-the-box power brick. Furthermore, it includes 2 Thunderbolt 3 ports that are also type C among its I/O (which, unfortunately, lacks a headphone jack).

The new ZenBook 14's Australian retailers also include the 1.39cm depth spec alluded to in its part of an April 2020 press release: it also apparently weighs 1.2kg. This material also made reference to a second, AMD Renoir-based SKU of this notebook; however, neither website makes mention of it at this time. However, we do know that this new Asus PC will come in an attractive greenish shade of gray (appropriately) called Pine Gray. 

Both sites quote its price at AU$1939 (~US$1361). Mwave currently lists it as out of stock, however, although Scorptec does allow it to be ordered at present, and states it will be available to ship from July 2020.
