It’s only been half a year since we reviewed the Asus ZenBook S UX391 and now Asus is ready to ship a successor. The ZenBook S13 UX392 will be even smaller than its predecessor while offering a larger 13.9-inch display for an insanely high screen-to-body ratio due to its 2.5 mm thick “frameless 4-sided NanoEdge” display.

Our table below summarizes the main differences between the UX392 and UX391. Aside from the usual CPU update from Kaby Lake-R to Whiskey Lake-U, the UX392 throws in a MicroSD slot that was omitted from the UX391. Furthermore, the larger 1080p-only display promises to be brighter and with deeper colors. Most everything else remains identical to the UX391 including the 50 Wh battery, GeForce MX150 GPU, single M.2 PCIe x4 storage bay, and 8 to 16 GB of LPDDR3 RAM.

Interestingly, Asus has decided to drop Thunderbolt 3 support on the UX392 even though it was a feature on the UX391.

The Asus ZenBook S13 UX392FN-XS71 with 8 GB of RAM can be found online for $1400 while the UX392FN-XS77 SKU with 16 GB of RAM can be found at Micro Center stores for $1500. Asus first unveiled the laptop at CES 2019.

As usual, expect our review on the new system in the coming weeks. It will be interesting to see if the unit ships with the slower ‘1D12’ GeForce MX150 GPU or the faster ‘1D10’ variant.
