At the start of the month, Asus launched the VivoBook 15 M513 OLED in Nepal, which is currently the cheapest OLED laptop in Nepal. The company has now followed it with the launch of ZenBook 13 OLED, which is a more premium offering. In this article, we will be discussing the key specs, features, official price, and availability of the Asus ZenBook 13 OLED in Nepal.
Asus ZenBook 13 OLED (2021) Overview:
Design and Display
The ZenBook series is home to some of the most premium and lightweight ultrabooks in Asus’ portfolio. And that does reflect on the ZenBook 13 OLED (2021). It sports the classic ZenBook spun-metal finish that is loved by many. Asus offers the laptop in two shades: Pine Grey and Lilac Mist. It is an portable laptop, measuring just 14mm in thickness and weighing around 1.15 kg.
Opening the lid, the ErgoLift hinge lifts the keyboard deck and rear chassis. On one hand, it improves the user’s typing experience, and on the other, it improves the laptop’s cooling and audio output.
Asus ZenBook 13’s OLED display is one of its main selling points. Here, you get a 13.3-inch OLED screen with an FHD resolution. You won’t have any problem with the color reproduction as it is a 10-bit OLED screen with 100% DCI-P3 coverage. In addition, it even comes with Pantone Validation. It peaks at 550 nits of brightness with VESA DiplayHDR True Black 500 certification.
Performance and Memory
Under the hood, Asus ZenBook 13 OLED (2021) packs 11th Gen Intel Core processors. It is also part of the Intel Evo platform. Asus has made the Core i5-1135G7 and Core i7-1165G7 variants available in Nepal. There is no option for discrete graphics, so you will have to rely on the integrated Intel Iris Xe GPU for graphics-related tasks.
In terms of memory, both the Core i5 and Core i7 variants of the Asus ZenBook 13 OLED (2021) come with 16GB of LPDDRAX RAM and 512GB of internal storage. Sadly, the RAM modules are soldered into the motherboard and are not upgradeable.

Keyboard and Trackpad
For typing, you get a backlit chicklet keyboard with an edge-to-edge design. You also get a row of function keys on the top row. Since it is a 13-inch laptop, there is no space for a dedicated number pad. Thus, Asus has included one in the trackpad itself. You can activate the LED-illuminated NumberPad 2.0 with the icon on the top left corner. Even when the NumberPad 2.0 is activated, users can still use the trackpad for cursor.
