Asus announced their latest USB display, ZenScreen at the Computex show in Taipei earlier this week. The display comes with a pen that has an unusual usage, to keep the screen upright in landscape or portrait orientation. ZenScreen is an important device that helps those developers and designers that are used to the multi-screen setup.
The Asus ZenScreen is only 8mm thick and weighs only 780 grams. The 15.6-inch screen packs 1080 pixel IPS panel with 6.5mm bezels. Asus is packing the device with a metal finish to give it a high-tech look. ZenScreen comes with a smart case that can be used to orient the display in different levels and positions.
As mentioned above, a pen is packed along with the ZenScreen. But it can not be used as a stylus as the display doesn’t support touch or stylus input. So, what is the usage of that pen? Well, it can be inserted into the slot on the bottom right corner of the display in order to make it stand upright in landscape or portrait orientation.
Speaking about the specifications and features, ZenScreen packs a total of eight video preset modes, TÜV Rheinland-certified flicker free tech, and four levels of the blue light filter. At the bottom left corner of the display, a Type-C USB Port is packed along with the Power and Menu buttons. Customers can choose between mirroring and extending the display.
Asus is tagging the ZenScreen with a little higher price. A total of $249 has to be paid for grabbing this USB display from Asus.
