Asus Zenbook S 13 OLED (2023) Launched – World’s Thinnest OLED Laptop From RM4,999 in Malaysia

The Asus Zenbook S 13 OLED has just been refreshed for 2023, and it’s touted by the Taiwanese company to be the world’s thinnest laptop with an OLED display. Measuring only 10.9mm thin with a 1kg chassis, it’s certainly a slim, lightweight productivity laptop.

What’s particularly interesting about the new Zenbook S 13 OLED is its…well, OLED panel. The laptop features a 13.3-inch 2880 x 1800 “Asus Lumina” OLED screen, a new branding from the company that is only given to “superior OLED displays that meet our strict quality criteria,” as Asus puts it.

Naturally, this OLED panel is also Pantone Validated with support for Dolby Vision. It also meets DisplayHDR True Black 500 standards, so it’ll certainly be interesting to see how the display would fare once we have the laptop in for review.

Other specifications of the S 13 OLED (for the Malaysian market) include a 13th gen Intel Core i7-1355U or i5-1335U processor paired with 16GB of LPDDR5 5200MHz RAM, up to 1TB of SSD storage, and a 63Wh battery with a quoted battery life of up to 14 hours.

The Asus Zenbook S 13 OLED is set to arrive in Malaysia sometime in the middle of May next month. Two variants are offered: the Core i5 base model with a 512GB SSD is priced at RM4,999, while the Core i7 variant with a 1TB SSD costs RM5,999. It’s worth noting that the S 13 OLED also comes with Microsoft Office Home & Student 2021 out of the box.
