Amazing ultra-vivid OLED display
The amazing FHD OLED HDR NanoEdge display on ZenBook 13 OLED[v] delivers stunningly detailed and realistic visuals, with ultra-vivid, true-to-life colors at any brightness level. It's PANTONE® Validated for outstanding color accuracy, boasts a cinema-grade 100% DCI-P3 color gamut, and has an ultrafast response time for blur-free action scenes. It's also VESA DisplayHDR™ 500 True Black certified for deep blacks and increased dynamic range, delivering enhanced realism and superb shadow detail.

Both ZenBook 13 OLED and ZenBook 14 have a four-sided NanoEdge[vi] display design, with a slim bezel that creates an up to 90% screen-to-body ratio for a more immersive viewing experience and a compact footprint.
The new edge-to-edge ergonomic keyboard design increases the size of the keyboard for a more comfortable typing experience. It also creates space for an extra set of useful function keys at the right-hand side of the keyboard. For maximum typing comfort, the precision engineered ErgoLift hinge automatically tilts the keyboard to the optimum typing angle when the lid is opened. This action also creates space under the laptop for extra cooling airflow.
For easy data entry, there’s the productivity-enhancing ASUS NumberPad 2.0. This is a dual-function touchpad with an integrated LED-illuminated full-size numeric keypad: simply tapping the icon on the touchpad turns NumberPad on and off.
An integrated infrared (IR) camera located on the bezel makes password-free face login fast and easy with Windows Hello. It also works in dim lighting conditions, so accessing ZenBook 13 OLED and ZenBook 14 is easier and faster than ever in any environment.
