Asus has been on a roll over the past several days, launching the first-ever quad-band WiFi 6E gaming router alongside announcing its AM5 socket motherboards, but the firm’s new Zenbook 17 Fold is a two-in-one product that outclasses some of the best on the market.

The Zenbook 17 Fold OLED sports both a tablet and laptop in one build, leveraging a full 4:3 17.3-in display that can, as the name suggests, fold over itself via a 180-degree hinge into two seamless 3:2 12.5-in screens. Asus itself relays that the product was conceived with the intention of balancing “mobility and productivity.”

Asus is packing the Zenbook 17 Fold OLED with some additional peripherals, main among them being a full-size Asus ErgoSense Bluetooth keyboard and touchpad, which serves as the on-the-go laptop rendition for the device. Even with all of its myriad trappings, the Zenbook 17 weighs 1.8 kg with the keyboard, so it won’t be a bother in transport.

The Zenbook 17 OLED will also have Asus ScreenXpert 3, a so-called intelligent window-management platform, which allows users to spread all of their content across the device’s immense screen real estate. The displays are also Dolby Vision-certified with a 100% DCI-P3 gamut and color accuracy attested via Pantone.

Folding screens of this caliber have yet to be fully realized, yet the idea stems from similar concepts in smartphones, best expressed via the Samsung Galaxy Fold. Samsung is now on its fourth iteration of the Galaxy Z Fold product line, costing consumers a whopping $1,799 for all but a mere folding smartphone.

The Zenbook 17, on the other hand, is a bit pricier given its wide swath of use cases, taking home a $3,500 price tag that reflects the device’s all-in-one approach to PC workflows. Asus says the Zenbook 17 OLED won’t be officially launched until Q4 this year, so interested buyers will have to wait a bit before trying this laptop-tablet out for themselves.
