The screen is still a full-HD IPS panel with a maximum brightness of 400 cd / m2.

Asus delivers the UX392 with a Core i5-8265U or i7-8565U from Intel’s new Whiskey Lake generation. The memory goes up to 16GB, the PCI-e-SSD has a maximum capacity of 1TB and the GPU is up to a GeForce MX150-GPU. The touchpad is equipped with a built-in fingerprint scanner and the backlit keyboard has, according to Asus, just a bit more travel than that of the UX391.

On the right side, Asus has placed a USB-a-port, while on the left two USB-c-connections back which support the USB 3.1 gen2 protocol. The battery has a capacity of 50Wh. When the new ZenBook will be for sale and what it is going to cost is not yet known.
