Asus is preparing a very compact laptop with excellent battery life. The teaser image shows a device that is slightly thicker than a standard 3.5mm headphone jack. Next to it are two USB-C ports.
The weight of the laptop will be 1 kg (perhaps even a little less), while simply excellent autonomy is promised – 19 hours. The official premiere of the novelty will take place on May 10, and with it another interesting ultra-thin model will be presented – this time a powerful one, with a Core i9 processor, a GeForce RTX 3060 discrete 3D accelerator and two screens.
One of the teaser images shows how the second screen rises when the lid of the laptop with the main display is opened. It is still difficult to say who such a thin but powerful laptop is aimed at – perhaps for professionals, and maybe for gamers. It can be assumed that both models use 12 generation Intel Core processors.

Asus today introduced several new products, including the ROG Strix SCAR 17 SE, one of the company’s most powerful and most expensive laptops. So, it is built on a 16-core Core i9-12950HX processor, the most powerful representative of the Alder Lake-S line.
Recall that the Core i9-12950HX debuted last week. Its configuration includes 8 high-performance cores up to 5 GHz and 8 energy-efficient cores up to 3.6 GHz, as well as 30 MB of L3 cache. There are two options for discrete graphics accelerators: the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti with 8 GB of GDDR6 memory in the base version and the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti with 16 GB of its own memory in the top version. In both cases, the battery capacity was 90 Wh.
There are also two screen options: Full HD with a frame rate of 360 Hz and coverage of 100% of the sRGB color space or QHD with a frame rate of 240 Hz and coverage of 100% of the DCI-P3 color space.
There are two slots for RAM modules, you can install 64 GB of DDR5 memory. There are also two slots for M.2 drives, you can install two 2 TB SSDs. There are also Bluetooth 5.2 and Wi-Fi 6E adapters, HDMI 2.1 video output, RJ-45 network port, USB-C with Thunderbolt 4, one USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C (DisplayPort 1.4/Power Delivery) and two USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type A.
Model dimensions – 395 x 282.1 x 23.4-28.3 mm, weight – 3 kg. The ROG Strix SCAR 17 SE will be available in Europe in the third quarter of 2022 starting at €3,200.
Introduced foldable AMOLED display for laptops. It debuts in the Asus ZenBook 17 Fold OLED
Chinese display manufacturer BOE has unveiled a unique 17.3-inch foldable AMOLED display for laptops that will be commercialized later this year.
BOE has revealed that the new F-OLED displays will be supplied exclusively by Asis for the ZenBook 17 Fold OLED laptop, which will be released later this year. BOE also won the Best Technology Demonstration Award.
The folding BOE display attracted a lot of attention from the visitors of the exhibition. The display covers 100% of the DCI-P3 color gamut and has ultra-thin bezels. It has an aspect ratio of 4:3 and is characterized by a resolution of 2560 x 1920 pixels. In addition, the display supports an active stylus.
The company also showcased the world’s largest 95-inch 8K OLED display at the show, a 34-inch WQHD R1500 curved Mini LED display designed specifically for esports. It offers a 21:9 aspect ratio and a high refresh rate of 165Hz.
World’s first 14″ laptop with 75Wh battery and Magic OS. Honor MagicBook 14 unveiled with 2K screen, Intel Core 12 processors and GeForce RTX 2050 GPU
Huawei has officially unveiled the next-generation 14-inch MagicBook 14 laptop. Even before the announcement, Huawei characterized the novelty as a device with outstanding autonomy, and now it became clear why it was implemented: the developers call the novelty the world’s first 14-inch laptop with a 75 Wh battery. It was also said about the influence of Magic OS (this is a set of proprietary applications for Windows) on the device’s ability to work 20 hours offline, but battery capacity still plays a decisive role here.
I must say, while the MagicBook 14 2022 is thin and compact (although the screen bezels could be smaller), it even allows you to play games – and even with ray tracing! The Nvidia GeForce RTX 2050 discrete 3D accelerator is responsible for graphics processing in this model. However, the basic models get by with integrated graphics, and the “middle” version offers a simpler discrete GPU – the GeForce MX 550.
Processors – Intel Core i5-12500H in the base version and Intel Core i7-12650H – in the top one. The amount of LPDDR5 RAM was 16 GB, the amount of SSD – 512 GB. The novelty received a new cooling system with two fans, two heat pipes and a radiator increased by 66% of the area. Compared to its predecessor, the airflow is increased by 35%.
The 14-inch laptop screen covers 88.15% of the lid. The resolution is 2160 x 1440 pixels, the frame rate is standard 60 Hz. The display is characterized by a brightness of 300 cd/m2, a contrast ratio of 1500:1 and coverage of 100% of the sRGB color space.
The case of Honor MagicBook 14 2022 is made of aluminum. The thickness is 15.9 mm, and the weight of the device is 1.54 kg. The configuration of the device also includes a fingerprint scanner built into the power key, a backlit keyboard, a webcam that allows you to record 720p video, a pair of USB-C ports.
The new MagicBook 14 with Core i5 retails for $810, but early adopters can pre-order for $735. The Core i7 version is priced at $840. Sales of new items in China will start on May 19.
