ASUS ZenBook Flip Will Come In Two Display Models And Lots Of Hardware Packed Underneath

ASUS ZenBook Flip is going to be a 2-in-1, suggesting that the upcoming notebook can be used as a tablet as well as a notebook. However, 2-in-1 might provide a lot of portability to consumers at the expense of additional processing firepower. The 13.3 inch convertible will only feature a mass of 1.3kg and will be incorporated with Intel’s Core M series of processors. Given below are the exact chip models that are going to be present inside the hybrid:

  • Core M3-6Y30: Dual-core processor (four threads) with a base speed of 900MHz and Turbo Boost clock up to 2.2GHz
  • Core M5-6Y54: Dual-core processor (four threads) with a base speed of 1.1GHz and Turbo Boost clock up to 2.7GHz
  • Core M7-6Y75: Dual-core processor (four threads) with a base speed of 1.2GHz and Turbo Boost clock up to 3.1GHz

These machines are going to be seriously underpowered as opposed to the other notebooks out there, so make sure that your priorities are set straight before you end up making your decision. The 2-in-1 will also be available to purchase in the 4GB and 8GB DDR4 models. Apart from a 1080p resolution, there will also be a model whose resolution will measure in at 3200 x 1800 pixels. However, we feel that this model will only have the Core M7 processor running since that is perhaps the only chip that will be able to render pixels at a decent pace.


Furthermore, SSD storage is going to be a part of ASUS ZenBook Flip, as expected, and the machine will be available to purchase in the 128GB, 256GB and 512GB capacity models and will utilize the M.2 SATA 3 interface. The product will also sport the following connectivity options:

  • Two USB 3.0
  • 1 USB 3.1 Type-C (Gen 1) port
  • MicroHDMI
  • SD Card Reader

Pricing details have currently not been divulged by the company and we will find this and update you guys on April 7. If ASUS does not follow a competitive pricing strategy, then consumers will obviously not be wooed to purchase this hybrid machine, irrespective of how appealing it will look.
