Laptop aficionados have been anticipating the release of the form factor of the future ever since Samsung Display unveiled a 17-inch foldable OLED screen in May. A 17-inch foldable is one of the very few unexplored territories left in this highly developed market; after all, many of even the most interesting laptop launches of this year have been updated to classic designs.

Zenbook 17-Fold OLED, a 17.3-inch foldable OLED laptop, has been unveiled by Taiwanese electronics giant Asus. The Bluetooth keyboard may be used with the Zenbook 17 Fold OLED, which can be folded at an angle of 120 degrees. Even a virtual keyboard may be created using the display's lower half. The Intel i7-1250U processor and 16GB of LPDDR5 RAM in the Zenbook 17 Fold OLED run Windows 11 Pro.

Some of the main PC manufacturers either confirmed they were working on 17-inch foldable laptops or were suspected to be. But Asus appears to be the first to act, which shouldn't surprise anyone who is aware of the firm and its shenanigans. The Zenbook 17-Fold OLED, the first shelf-ready product of its sort to reach reviewers' hands, is where I'm typing this right now. It is a 17.3-inch laptop with a foldable screen.
