Ultra-thin and light
ZenBook Flip S is a timelessly elegant masterpiece, exquisitely crafted from solid aluminum. The chassis is forged from a single block of metal that’s carefully honed until it's a mere 10.9mm thin. Weighing just 1.1kg, it’s effortlessly portable. And because it’s made from premium, aerospace-grade aluminum, it’s lighter than standard laptop alloy but 50% stronger.
Stronger by design: aerospace-grade alloy
To achieve amazing lightness without compromising structural strength, ZenBook Flip S is precision-crafted from 6013 aluminum alloy, a premium material commonly specified for automotive and aerospace applications. As well as being 50% stronger than the 6063 alloy used in many standard laptops, this material is also supremely elegant when adorned with the signature ZenBook spun-metal finish*.

ZenBook has always been the benchmark for thin-and-light design, and with ZenBook Flip S we’ve taken it to a whole new level. It's not only the thinnest laptop we’ve ever created — its profile measures just 10.9mm — but we’ve also reduced the weight to a mere 1.1kg to make it the perfect take-anywhere companion. To keep the display light and ultra-slim, yet tough, it’s covered with super-strong Corning® Gorilla® Glass, which is 10x more resistant to drop-damage than standard glass.
Crafted to perfection
Designing ZenBook Flip S required serious engineering prowess and craftsmanship. The ultra-thin profile meant we had to invent the ErgoLift hinge — the world’s most compact flippable hinge — to preserve its sleek lines. To accommodate the full-size keyboard, we had to create an ultra-slim surround. To add a touch of luxury, we added brilliant diamond-cut highlights to the edges. ZenBook Flip S is renowned for its unique, stunning looks. You’ll instantly recognize the iconic, Zen-inspired spun-metal finish* on the all-metal unibody enclosure — a finish that takes 40 painstaking steps to create.

The innovative ErgoLift hinge mechanism on ZenBook Flip S is cleverly designed to lift and tilts the keyboard by 1.5° — the perfect typing position — when the display is opened beyond 135°. The ErgoLift hinge takes the ZenBook Flip S experience to the next level.
World’s most compact hinge
To create the thinnest-ever flippable laptop, we reduced the diameter of the alloy steel 360° hinge to an incredible 3.9mm. A special scratch-resistant coating on the hinge reduces wear, and the dual-action rotation mechanism reduces the stresses exerted during operation, improving reliability and durability.

When it comes to getting things done, everyone agrees that a bigger display is a better display — because it makes multitasking easier and entertainment more immersive. That’s why we’ve broken all the rules to give ZenBook Flip S the biggest screen possible: the stunning 13.3-inch Full HD NanoEdge display has an ultra-narrow 6.11mm bezel. To maximize viewing comfort, the NanoEdge display also has a matte anti-glare coating that reduces annoying reflections. The result is a laptop with an impressive 80% screen-to-body ratio* that maximizes the screen area while minimizing overall size — so you can see and do more, while carrying less!
* Calculated using the visible body area.
The groundbreaking ASUS TruVivid direct-bonding technology used in the ZenBook Flip S eliminates extra layers of glass to improve brightness and reduce reflections by 67%, for clearer outdoor viewing. 178° wide-view technology ensures image clarity at almost any viewing angle, so it’s ideal for shared viewing with friends or colleagues.
Take it to the edge
To create a display that’s lightweight, ultra-slim and durable, we covered the ZenBook Flip S display with super-strong Corning® Gorilla® Glass, which is 10x tougher than standard soda-lime glass. This amazing new material is 10 times better than soda-lime glass. It’s less likely to break in daily use, so it’s stronger and safer than ever before.
ASUS Tru2Life video technology makes your videos look amazing. Using intelligent software that optimizes every pixel in every video frame, you’ll enjoy the best possible image quality. The smart algorithms in ASUS Tru2Life analyze the brightness histogram for each video pixel in each frame, then intelligently adjust the brightness and black level values, as well as optimizing over one million sharpness values per frame. This can improve the contrast by up to 150%, bringing out hidden detail in dark areas while keeping bright areas as brilliant as ever!
