Nagmani International, the official distributor for Asus in Nepal, recently hosted an event where it announced a couple of interesting OLED laptops. We have already covered the 17” ZenBook Fold OLED in our previous article. Here we will discuss the specs, features, official price, and availability of the Asus ZenBook Pro 14 Duo OLED in Nepal.
Asus ZenBook Pro 14 Duo OLED Overview:
Asus ZenBook Pro 14 Duo OLED is a creator laptop with a dual-screen setup. It sports a 14.5-inch 2.6K OLED touchscreen with a 120Hz refresh rate. The screen has a peak brightness of 550 nits and has VESA HDR True Black 500 certification to back it up. For creators, the panel covers 100% DCI-P3 and has Pantone Validation as well.
With the ZenBook Pro 14 Duo OLED, you also get a second screen in the ScreenPad Plus. It’s a 12.7-inch touchscreen that raises up to 20mm at a 12-degree tilt with the new AAS Ultra hinge mechanism. This setup also enhances the cooling mechanism by allowing additional air intake.
On the software side, Asus has reinforced the ScreenPad Plus with ScreenXpert 3, which allows for cross-screen multitasking. Users can unlock additional controls on creative apps like Adobe Photoshop with the Control Panel app. Moreover, the additional screen real estate can come in handy for programmers, music artists, gamers, and streamers.
Design and Build
All this is enclosed by an all-metal chassis that measures 1.79mm in thickness and weighs around 1.7 kg. The laptop is available in a single Tech Black option with an anti-fingerprint coating on top. The laptop has also gone through MI-STD-810H military tests for reliability and durability. Just below the second screen is the space for the keyboard and a touchpad. Keys come with a dish and have 1.4mm travel. Asus coats the touchpad with a hydrophobic and anti-fingerprint layer to maximize smoothness.
Performance and Memory
Over on the inside, Asus ZenBook Pro 14 Duo pairs 12th Gen Intel CPU with NVIDIA’s RTX 30-series mobile GPUs. Nagmani International has brought the maxed-out version of the laptop with Core i9-12900H and RTX 3050 Ti in Nepal. The latter is backed by NVIDIA studio drivers, which promise the best compatibility and performance in visual tasks.
The new IceCool Plus thermal solution on the ZenBook Pro 14 Duo features two cooling fans, two aero-grade 8mm heat pipes, and the aforementioned AAS Ultra intake. Together, it allows the CPU and GPU to run at a combined 85W TDP.
Audio and Webcam
Asus ZenBook Pro 14 Duo OLED has a stereo speaker setup tuned by harmon/kardon. It has Dolby Atmos and gets 3.5 times louder with the Smart Amp. Likewise, you get a four-mic array with AI-based noise reduction. Depending upon the model, you can get a 720p or 1080p camera with an IR sensor.
Rest of the Specs
Asus ZenBook Pro 14 Duo packs a 76Wh battery that the company claims to last up to 9.5 hours. You can charge the laptop using the 180W AC power adapter included in the box. For external peripherals, the laptop has two Thunderbolt 4, one USB Type-A, one HDMI, and a MicroSD card reader.
