In the past, ASUS had launched the world’s first laptop with dual displays in its ZenBook lineup. The devices were dubbed as ZenBook Pro Duo (review) and ZenBook Duo. Both laptops made their way to India last October. The Taiwanese brand has unveiled another laptop with dual-screen, this time for gamers under its ROG lineup. The latest offering is called ROG Zephyrus Duo 15. Compared to the ZenBook Pro Duo, this one comes with a few changes. Let’s take a look at the laptop below.
ASUS ROG Zephyrus Duo 15 specifications and features
The ROG Zephyrus Duo 15 sports a 15.6-inch main display that is offered in two options – a 4K 60Hz panel with touch support and an FHD 300Hz screen. ASUS says that the former is aimed at content creators while the latter is ideal for gamers. The laptop features an RGB backlit keyboard with a trackpad positioned on the right, which also doubles up as a number pad.
Coming to the striking feature of ROG Zephyrus Duo 15, the laptop’s secondary display is called as ROG ScreenPad Plus. It is a 14.9-inch 60Hz screen bearing UHD resolution with touchscreen and stylus support. The secondary screen can be lifted up at a 13-degree angle so that both the displays offer a better field of view while using the laptop. ASUS says that it could be used to show secondary apps like Twitch chats, game streaming and more. The company added that it has partnered with game developers to create content with special interfaces and controls suited for a dual-screen setup.
Under the hood, the ROG Zephyrus Duo 15 is available in different hardware configurations with up to a 10th gen Core i9-10980 HK processor paired with up to NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 2080 Super. The laptop packs up to 32GB RAM and up to 2TB of SSD storage with RAID 0 support. ASUS says that the opening under the secondary display will aid with the airflow, keeping the device cool. The ROG Zephyrus Duo 15 is powered by a 90Wh battery. Connectivity-wise, it features a USB-C 3.2 port, a ThunderBolt 3 port, two USB 3.2 ports, HDMI-out, two 3.5mm ports and an ethernet port.
