Attended ASUS BIGGEST annual launch event for 2016 – ZENVOLUTION with my girlfriend to give our support to the event! Showcasing all their upcoming grand launches, I found a few NEW favourites at the event of course.
I believe you have heard about my little obsession on the ASUS ZENBOOK FLIP UX360 right? Remember the giveaway I did previously? You are about to be AMAZED with the upcoming new launches coming up in 2016.
PRESENTING to you, ASUS Zenbook 3.
The ASUS Zenbook has always been the benchmark for THIN and LIGHT designs and with the ZenBook 3, using premium, aerospace-grade aluminium, the weight is reduced to ONLY 910g and thinness of 11.9mm. With a smaller ultra slim bezel of 7.6mm, the result is a 12.5 inch display that is of A4 size giving you more viewing area than any laptop of the similar size. And of course, with any fast, ultra thin laptops comes with a disadvantage – performance generates heat. To eliminate this issue, ASUS has invented a brand new cooling system using liquid crystal polymer fan impeller where warm air is expelled through hidden vents even under full load.
This is one insanely powerful laptop with the latest 7th generation Intel Core i7 processor. Theres nothing you cannot do with the Zenbook 3. Joining forces with audiophile specialists Harman Kardon provides you with a cinematic quality surround sound system.
We have the ASUS Transformer 3 Pro with us too and this is literally a design masterpiece. Designed to ensure unrivalled portability and performance. At JUST 8.35mm thin and 790g light, this is a gorgeously sleek tablet that is made of incredibly tout material protecting the PRO from everyday scuffs and scratches. With the latest Intel Core i7 Processor and 16GB RAM gives you the quickest boot up time as well. Comes equipped with a full size standard HDMI port, USB 3.0 Type A port and Micro SD card reader for mobile convenience. With a 18x faster performance, 3.6x faster start up time and 37% longer battery life, the SSDs contain no moving parts so there is practically ZERO chance of mechanical failure. Like the ZENBOOK 3, this baby is able to work faster with lesser vibration and stress keeping it cool due to a new technology incorporated in it. Not to forget, there is a 13MP Rear Camera to capture your daily snippets. You no longer have to do the taxing chore of uploading photos from your phone to the PC for editing. Typing on the go is also easy with the Transformer Cover Keyboard and pen. For gamers, immense yourself in the hyper realistic gaming experience with this baby as you can connect it to an external ASUS ROG XG Station 2 for increased graphic performance by up to 195%!
Get cinematic entertainment with 2k IPS Display. With a modern contemporary design capturing attention, the weight of 320g and premium leathered patterned rear cover feels great to the touch. All in the details, this ZenPad brings to you mobile entertainment like never before. Its incredible 8-inch 2k Resolution IPS Display features wide 178 degree viewing angles and exclusive ASUS VisualMaster and ASUS Tru2Life + Technologies for a cinematic experience. Treat your ears to a feast as the ASUS SonicMaster technology offers higher volumes, improved audio delivery and additional audio effects. Input with dual front speakers for higher volume levels, the DTS headphone:X delivers an immersive and cinematic 7.1-channel surround sound experience straight to the headphones. Experience supercharged gaming power too all thanks to the superb hexa core processor, 4GB RAM and Adreno 510 GPU. Input with an 8MP PixelMaster camera for you to capture stunning and high resolution photos with zero shutter lag. Enjoy capturing 400% brighter photos at night or in low light scenes without the need for a flash.
Finally, the ZenWatch 3. Most watched item during the entire event, this is the perfect fusion between style and technology. A smaller and smoother cut translates to a diamond cut bezel for a lighter, more elegant watch experience. The ZenWatch 3 is the world’s first 3 buttons designed Android Wear smart watch for a more intuitive functionality and better user experience. Comes with 6 custom design themes and more than 50 exclusive watch faces allows you endless styling possibilities. The exclusive FaceDesigner app allows you to create your own watch face perfectly tailored to you. The customisable Go-to-Watch Assistant provides quick access to your favourite apps or features in a split second. Every sportsperson favourite feature, the ALL NEW ASUS ZenFit app automatically fonts your steps and works to provide a complete picture of your daily activities. Using an innovative HyperCharge technology, all you need is 15 minutes and its good enough to provide you with a day battery usage.
My favourite goes to the ZenWatch and Transformer Pro 3. These two are on my watch list if you want to know!
