Asus Announces Zenbook S 13 OLED, Will Launch in Kenya Soon


ASUS has launched the Zenbook S 13 OLED (UX5304), which features a 13.3-inch OLED display and is one of the slimmest laptops in its category.

It offers high performance, connectivity, and long battery life, as well as eco-friendliness, using recycled materials in its construction, eco-friendly packaging, and halogen-free electronics.

Under the hood is a 13th Gen Intel Core i7 processor, up to 32 GB of LPDDR5 RAM, and a 1 TB PCIe 4.0 x4 SSD. It has a variety of I/O ports for on-the-go connections.

The laptop has a 16:10 2.8K ASUS Lumina OLED display that is Dolby Vision certified, Pantone Validated for color accuracy, and VESA DisplayHDR True Black 500 certified, providing a high-quality visual experience.

Here are some of its specs:

Asus has been selling its laptops in the Kenyan market for some years now, ranging from its ultrabooks to gaming computers. This means that buyers who need specific Asus machines can get them from select local shops, such as Text Book Centre without the need of importing them using third-party companies, an exercise that is also a challenge for some people. Local availability further means that customers have access to a warranty in case something happens to their laptops.

The Zenbook S 13 OLED is yet to arrive in the country, so we are not sure how much it will cost. However, when we get that information, we will update this story.
