ASUS announced an assortment of exciting new products that leverage OLED technology during its “Create the Uncreated” online launch event today. Two of the standouts are the ZenScreen OLED and ProArt Display OLED PA32DC, both of which are primed to offer stunning image quality.

ZenScreen OLED

The ZenScreen OLED is the world’s very first 13-inch OLED portable monitor. This is a huge deal for users who are looking for a high-quality display that’s much smaller in size, as the majority of portable monitors on the market today are limited to IPS screens with relatively poor contrast ratios. Many of these also seem to suffer from backlight bleeding, which won’t be an issue on the ZenScreen OLED.

Available in both 13.3-inch and 15.6-inch models, ASUS’ ZenScreen OLED features 1920 x 1080 resolution and boasts infinite contrast for true blacks to bring out the best in HDR content. It also supports 10-bit colors and 100 percent coverage of the DCI-P3 color space.

Users will be able to connect the ZenScreen OLED to laptops and other devices through one of its three USB Type-C ports or Mini-HDMI port. An embedded proximity sensor will dim the display when it’s not in use to save power and reduce the possibility of image burn-in.

The display’s thin-and-light design and versatile Smart Case make it an easy traveling companion. The 13.3” model is especially easy to tuck into a bag, as it weighs less than 500g. The ASUS Smart Case not only protects the display but also serves as an always-ready adjustable stand. For even more flexibility, the ZenScreen OLED has a threaded socket that’s compatible with any standard tripod. To save power and reduce the possibility of image retention, an embedded Proximity Sensor dims the display when it’s not in use.

ProArt Display OLED PA32DC

Complementing the ZenScreen OLED is the ProArt Display PA32DC, a 32-inch 4K OLED monitor aimed at creators and other professionals who require extremely high color accuracy. The display uses an RGB sub-pixel arrangement instead of an RGBW or PenTile sub-pixel array, which allows for sharper images and text.

In addition to VESA DisplayHDR 400 True Black certification, ASUS’ ProArt Display OLED PA32DC includes a built-in auto-calibration tool to ensure accurate color reproduction. This is the first OLED display to include such a tool.

OLED panels are known for their excellent color reproduction, and the ProArt Display OLED PA32DC is a shining example of what the tech can provide to even the most demanding of creators. It offers true 10-bit color, and it covers 99% of the cinema-grade DCI-P3 color gamut. ASUS Smart HDR technology ensures compatibility with existing streaming video services and a growing list of HDR-enabled games. The PA32DC supports multiple HDR metadata formats so that you can check how content will appear for a wide range of target displays before it’s sent off for final delivery.

  1. Why would I want a 13 inch portable monitor? I get it for a travelling business person but even then I’d want a 24 inch maybe. Or at least 17… but a 13 inch? Why two small and cumbersome to deal with small screens?

  2. I guess since OLED monitors are starting to come out now, we really aren’t worried about menu bar burn-in anymore?

    If you’re already using a 13″-class laptop, it should match up nicely while also traveling nicely. Could also be useful as a photography or videography monitor, something we do with laptops currently for product photography and macro as the TVs are both 55″ 😀
