So, Zenbook 13 OLED shows rich and clear tones for every single creative task and diversion.
The screen utilized by ASUS shows blacks of matchless depth. An OLED pixel is made out of three subpixels, each producing its light. Accordingly, the Zenbook 13 OLED section has 6,200,800 self-lit subpixels, where an LCD is content with 50 to 60 illuminated LEDs. To show dark, turn off the pixels and get the haziest shade conceivable. This is the reason these pieces profit by outstanding difference rates. The pictures are clear and sharp, even in the haziest zones. Moreover, its HDR inclusion reaches 70%, contrasted with 46% for an LCD screen.

With the brightness of the Asus Zenbook, 13 OLED ultraportables set to 177 nits, the range of the product is excellent while retaining crisp and rich colors. Even when the light runs out, the OLED guarantees unparalleled color stability. Another advantage is that this screen emits 70% less blue light, a feature certified by reputable organizations such as the Rheinland T-V or SMS. Blue light is known to cause premature aging of the retina's photoreceptors. Even more damaging in children, whose lens is highly transparent. In addition, blue light disrupts the circadian cycle by blocking melatonin production. This prevents sleep and restful sleep.
OLED Care is an exclusive Mechanism of Asus that guarantees the OLED slab the best possible durability. The burn-in can occur when a high-contrast image is displayed for an extended period. To avoid this problem, as soon as the ultrabook remains inactive for more than 30 minutes, the particular screen saver will go off. It illuminates and darkens pixels evenly to reduce the risk of burns.
