Crafted to Perfection
Combining pioneering technology and world-renowned design, the thin-and-light unibody of the ZenBook Flip S UX370 is just 10.9 mm thin and weighs a mere 1.1kg. It is crafted from a single block of aerospace-grade 6013 aluminum alloy, a material that is lighter than standard laptop alloy, but 50 percent stronger.

The ZenBook Flip S UX370 available in the sophisticated Smoky Grey colour is enhanced with a dual-phase anodising trim that provides luxurious silver highlights on the edges of the Smoky Grey model.



To help achieve its effortlessly portable dimensions, the ZenBook Flip S UX370 incorporates the new ErgoLift hinge — one of the world’s most compact 360° hinges. The ErgoLift hinge features a precision-engineered multi-gear metal mechanism, with a smooth and stepless action that holds the display securely at any angle. This innovative hinge has a dual-action mechanism that lifts and tilts the keyboard into the perfect typing position when the display is opened beyond 135°. To ensure maximum reliability, the ErgoLift hinge is subjected to a 20,000-cycle open-and-close test.

Unprecedented Performance
The ZenBook Flip S UX370 incorporates state-of-the-art components that deliver unprecedented performance in an ultra-thin and ultra-light form factor. Its powerful 8th Generation Intel® Core i7 processor and 16GB of 2133MHz LPDDR3 RAM ensure effortless performance for smooth multi-tasking, while a high-performance 512GB SSD with a PCIe 3.0 x4 interface gives the ZenBook Flip S UX370 a faster storage than traditional SSD.


The two USB-C ports on the ZenBook Flip S UX370 support 4K UHD external displays, power delivery and data transfer — all via the reversible, any-way-up USB-C connector. For added on-the-go convenience, the bundled Mini Dock provides a HDMI port, a USB 3.1 port, and a USB-C port that supports fast charging.

To achieve its remarkable up to 11-hour battery life[4], the ZenBook Flip S UX370 uses a specially designed high-capacity 39Wh lithium-polymer battery that is shaped to fit precisely into its impossibly thin profile. The battery supports fast charging technology that allows it to be charged to 60 percent capacity in just 49 minutes[5].

Stunning Full HD NanoEdge Display
The ZenBook Flip S UX370 features a 13.3-inch NanoEdge multi-touch display with an ultra-thin 8.7mm physical bezel that gives it an incredible 80 percent screen-to-body ratio, making multi-tasking easier and entertainment more immersive. With a resolution of up to 1,920 x 1,080 full HD and an incredible pixel density of 331 pixels per inch, this stunning display features 178° wide-view technology that ensures image clarity at almost any viewing angle. It also features a layer of super-strong Corning® Gorilla® Glass for outstanding durability. To maximise viewing comfort, the NanoEdge display has a touch screen surface to reduce reflections.

The NanoEdge display uses exclusive ASUS TruVivid direct-bonding technology that improves brightness and reduces reflections by 67 percent, for clearer outdoor viewing. For amazing video quality, the ZenBook Flip S UX370 includes the exclusive ASUS Tru2Life Video technology with intelligent software that optimises every pixel in every frame to produce the best possible image, improving contrast by up to 150 percent. The touchscreen display also supports an active stylus, such as the ASUS Pen that comes bundled with the ZenBook Flip S UX370, for a natural interactivity.

Designed for Intuitive, Effortless Experiences

It features two high-quality speakers powered by a smart amplifier for 3X-louder sound and distortion-free, cinema-quality realism.

For enhanced security and ease of use, the ZenBook Flip S UX370 includes an amazingly accurate fingerprint sensor with super-quick recognition. With its incredibly small sensor — measuring just 16 x 3.6mm — it recognises even partial fingerprint scans, making it the perfect companion for instant one-touch login via Windows Hello.
