Introducing Asus’ Revolutionary 17-Inch Foldable OLED Monitor

At first glance, the new 17-inch OLED screen that Asus just unveiled at CES might not be that attention-grabbing. But fold it in half and that changes things. Designed for productivity on the go, the ZenScreen Fold is the world’s first foldable OLED portable monitor, according to Asus. The screen has a built-in stand and works in either portrait or landscape mode. It can be positioned above a laptop or tablet as a second screen, and functions as one big 4:3 screen that shows you more of your workspace without scrolling or two side-by-side 16:9 screens. The device weighs less than three pounds and is less than 12.5 inches when folded. This portable monitor is essentially the screen portion of the Zenbook 17 Fold, featuring a specially designed crease to lessen the visibility of the seam. It carries a 2560 x 1920 resolution with 100 percent coverage of the DCI-P3 color space and DisplayHDR True Black 500 certification. It also has two USB-C ports, a Mini HDMI port, a headphone jack, and a tripod support space. Asus didn’t reveal exact pricing or a release date, but it’s expected sometime around the beginning of the second quarter of this year.
