Zenbook Duo (2024) UX8406- Revolutionary design with twin OLED touchscreens and a detachable keyboard

Zenbook Duo

The Zenbook DUO is the world’s first dual-screen laptop with twin 14-inch 3K 120 Hz OLED touchscreens. This incredible device has two screens, a detachable keyboard, and a kickstand bundled into one compact, user-centric design – rewriting the rule book for on-the-go versatility. With Intel Evo Edition certification, it expertly combines multitasking versatility with superb mobility in a 1.35 kg-light package.
The premium ASUS Lumina OLED displays are Dolby Vision® certified, Pantone® Validated and have a cinema-grade 100% DCI-P3 colour gamut to ensure vivid, accurate colour rendering. They are also VESA DisplayHDR™ True Black 500 certified for the deepest black levels.

The touchscreens support high-precision stylus input using the optional 4096 pressure-level ASUS Pen, and the built-in ScreenXpert software enables smartphone-like multitouch gesture support for intuitive operation: users can launch a virtual keyboard, maximize a window, and much more with simple multi-finger gestures. Zenbook DUO’s detachable keyboard fits between its dual screens for practicality when carrying. This design enhances portability and convenience, allowing users to seamlessly use or charge the keyboard at any time without extra settings. The pogo-pin connectors on the edge of the lower screen ensure hassle-free docking, with auto-positioning magnets on the pogo pins and corners of the second screen to further enhance the overall user experience.

Effortlessly versatile with multiple user modes and ScreenXpert software

ASUS laptops feature user-centric designs that set them apart from the crowd. Uniquely, Zenbook DUO is supplied with an ultra-quiet, full-size ASUS ErgoSense Bluetooth keyboard with an integrated touchpad, and this combined with the lay-flat 180° display hinge and convenient built-in kickstand allows several versatile user modes. The intuitive ScreenXpert software allows easy control of the display contents in all modes. Dual Screen mode: When used with the wireless keyboard, this mode provides 19.8 inches of screen real estate, which can be used as a single expansive screen via the ViewMax feature. Alternatively, the twin 16:10 displays can be used independently, with easy window management via the App Switcher feature that puts users in full fingertip control of app windows, reducing interruptions and helping users maintain focus on the task at hand. Desktop mode: The laptop can be used with the hinge aligned vertically for side-by-side portrait screens.

Combined with the wireless keyboard, this makes it perfect for programmers, researchers, writers, and those who need access to large data worksheets for things like financial analysis — and many more. Users can display productivity apps on one screen while the other shows reference materials, documentation, or research sources. Alternatively, using the ViewMax feature they can display content across the entire screen width, giving them a massive 19.8-inch display. Laptop mode: Users can place the ASUS ErgoSense Bluetooth keyboard and touchpad onto the lower display for a traditional laptop-style experience, replete with a 14-inch display and tall 16:10 aspect ratio.

A pogo-pin connector automatically recharges the keyboard. Alternatively, the lower screen can be configured as a full-size virtual keyboard if required, so users don’t have to travel with the keyboard if space is tight. Sharing mode: Allows easy sharing of content in meetings and business presentations. The 180° hinge allows the screens to lay flat so everyone can view the screen without having to huddle around, fostering better engagement and discussion. Additionally, content on the upper screen can be rotated by 180° if needed.

Supremely capable with Intel, LPDDR5x, PCIe 4.0, and Dolby Atmos

Despite its ultra-compact form factor, Zenbook DUO doesn’t sacrifice performance or functionality. It’s powered for productivity by the latest generation of Intel processors — up to the all-new Core Ultra 9 H-series — combined with up to 32 GB of LPDDR5x RAM and up to a 2 TB PCIe 4.0 SSD. The redesigned 75 Wh high-capacity battery has an eco-friendly extended lifespan that supports up to 20% more charging cycles than the previous generation. As an Intel Evo Edition laptop, Zenbook DUO wakes instantly, charges fast, and delivers all-day battery life so users can confidently travel without their chargers. Intel Core Ultra processors feature Intel’s first integrated Neural Processing Unit (NPU), which delivers a dedicated engine to help unlock AI experiences on the PC, the next level in immersive graphics, and high-performance low-power processing, so users can work, game, and create without worrying about battery life. It’s perfect for shifting workloads from the CPU and providing power-efficient AI acceleration for modern AI-enabled applications.

The NPU delivers low-latency AI computing, accelerating multitasking to make Zenbook DUO highly efficient for work, creativity, and entertainment. All this enables users to seamlessly manage complex workloads and enhance productivity. And with the huge screen real estate available on Zenbook DUO, two full-size 14″ displays, users can effortlessly run all their favourite productivity apps — and keep them in view — at the same time. The 14.6 mm-thin chassis has no compromises in I/O capabilities, either, with two Thunderbolt™ 4 ports, a USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-A port, an HDMI® 2.1 (TMDS) port, and a convenient 3.5 mm audio jack, so users don’t need to carry a bulky docking station or multiple adapters. The Thunderbolt 4 ports support up to 40 Gbps data transfers, dual 4K displays, and power delivery. The HDMI 2.1 port supports up to 8K resolution at 60 Hz, or 4K at 120 Hz, for stunning visuals on external monitors or TVs. The audio jack supports both headphones and headsets, and the laptop also has a built-in array microphone for clear voice communication.

Zenbook DUO also delivers superb sound quality with its Harman Kardon-certified Dolby Atmos audio system, which features four speakers and a smart amplifier for rich, immersive, and distortion-free sound. Dolby Atmos enhances the spatial audio experience, creating a realistic and immersive soundscape that envelops the listener. Whether users are watching movies, playing games, or listening to music, Zenbook DUO delivers an amazing audio experience.
