What you need to know
- ASUS is debuting its brand new ZenBook 17 Fold at CES.
- Besides folding, it packs quite the spec sheet.
- The full launch isn’t expected until Computex in the summer.
Is 2022 going to be the year the foldable PC really kicks off? If ASUS has anything to say about it, then yes. Revealed for the first time at CES 2022, the ZenBook 17 Fold OLED is the company’s first foldable PC. And on a very early look, it’s going to kick some serious ass.
The full launch of the ZenBook 17 Fold OLED isn’t scheduled to happen until Computex in the summer in ASUS’ backyard out in Taiwan, but it’s kicking off the year in style with a sneak peek. There’s plenty we still don’t know about it, but we do have some snippets of goodness to get excited over.
