Back in 2019, ASUS announced a rather interesting laptop in the form of the ASUS ZenBook Duo Pro. What made this particular laptop so unique that it came with a secondary 4K display built right above the keyboard, which if you think about it, is essentially like a souped up version of Apple’s Touch Bar on its MacBooks.
The problem with a lot of small form factor PC builds is that it can be hard to find high-end powerful GPUs that can fit into them, but we suppose to be fair, these kind of builds tend to focus more on size rather than power. However, if you do fancy putting together a SFF build, ASUS might have something of interest to you.
Back in 2018, YouTuber MKBHD decided to run a blind smartphone camera test in which he pitted a variety of phones released in 2018 against each other, where users would then vote on social media which is their favorite photo. The results were very surprising in which the budget (but flagship) Pocophone F1 nearly walked away the winner.
Ubergizmo’s Best of IFA AwardsEditor's Pick
IFA is officially going on until Sept 11, but if you haven’t had time to follow all the IFA news, our Best of IFA 2019 is what we want you to take away from this show. These are the products that caught our attention for their quality, novelty, usefulness, or daringness.
In the display industry, there are displays made for everyday use, there are displays designed and optimized for gaming, and then there are also displays aimed at the working professional who might have need for a more color-accurate display when editing photos or videos. If you fall into the latter category, ASUS might have something for you.
Usually when it comes to GPUs in laptops, due mostly to the size, it would be near-impossible to fit a full-sized GPU into it. This usually means that most laptops with discrete GPU options are running a “mobile” version of the GPU, which means that it isn’t as powerful as its desktop counterpart.
If you do a lot of business while on the move, then chances are you can appreciate a laptop that isn’t too bulky or heavy, especially if you’re going to carry it around all day. If you are interested in such a laptop, you’re in luck because at IFA 2019, ASUS has taken the wraps off the ASUSPRO B9, which the company claims is the “world’s lightest” business laptop.
The idea of gaming smartphones sounds a bit gimmicky, since for the most part they tend to share the same hardware as most flagship handsets. However, it appears that the recently launched ASUS ROG Phone 2 is quite a hit over in China where it has been reported that pre-orders for the handset are pretty impressive.
ASUS had confirmed that its upcoming ROG Phone 2 will be using the slightly overclocked Snapdragon 855 Plus mobile platform. The company has finally unveiled its new gaming smartphone today. It does indeed come with the Snapdragon 855 Plus mobile platform from Qualcomm. The specs are on another level entirely and in a league of their own compared to any other Android device on the market today.
Qualcomm today announced the Snapdragon 855 Plus which is an overclocked version of the Snapdragon 855 mobile platform which was introduced earlier this year. The company has said that this chipset will be present in mobile devices due in the second half of this year. ASUS has confirmed that its ROG Phone 2 will be the first to feature the Snapdragon 855 Plus.
If gaming smartphones are your thing, then you might want to mark down the 23rd of July on your calendars. This is because according to a report from DigiTimes, the publication is claiming that ASUS is expected to make an announcement next month where the ASUS ROG Phone 2 will be announced.
The overall design of laptops hasn’t really changed that much over the decades since they’ve been around. For the most part, they’re clamshell devices that features a screen on one end, and a keyboard on the other. However, it seems that ASUS is hoping to turn the industry on its head with the ASUS ZenBook Pro Duo.
We have been hearing some rumors about the ASUS Zenfone 6 for a while now, and the good news for those who have been keeping an eye out for it is that the handset has since been officially launched, and boy, does it look like a pretty well-designed handset that comes with flagship hardware specs.
For a while, it seemed like the notch was a design feature that we can probably expect to see on smartphones for a while to come. However, it appears that the trend could be dying a rather quick death as we’re starting to see more handset manufacturers come up with alternatives. ASUS will be one of them.
