A previous leak anticipated that Asus would showcase the new ZenBook S16 at Computex 2024 alongside a wide range of other laptops. The device officially has an AMD Strix Point processor and some exciting specifications.

The device is 11mm thick and weighs only 1.5kg, thanks to what Asus calls a Ceraluminum chassis. The ZenBook S16 is one of many laptops ditching the famous Windows key for the new Copilot key.

Unfortunately, Asus did not specify the exact CPU powering the new ZenBook S16. Since AMD revealed only two models, it’s likely either the Ryzen AI 9 HX 370 or the Ryzen AI 9 365. It can be paired with up to 32GB of LPDDR5x RAM and a 2TB NVMe SSD.

Lastly, the laptop is powered by a 78Wh battery. It does not include a dedicated charging pin, effectively forcing users to use one of the two USB 4.0 ports.

Other input/output options on the Asus ZenBook S16 include a 3.5mm audio jack, an HDMI port, an SD card reader, and a USB Type-A port with 20Gbps speed. Wireless connectivity options include Wi-Fi 7 and Bluetooth.

The ZenBook S16 has six speakers tuned by Harman Kardon, with Dolby Atmos support.

The Asus ZenBook S16 also features a 16-inch OLED touchscreen with 3K resolution and a 120Hz refresh rate. The screen-to-body ratio is 90%, and the device is available in white and grey.

Other features include a 1080p webcam compatible with Windows Hello, support for Windows Passkeys and a Microsoft Pluton security chip.

The Asus ZenBook S16 starts at $1399 and will be available in the coming weeks.
