Asus ZenBook Pro Duo dazzles with double 4K displays

This secondary display is called ScreenPad Plus and it is placed directly above the laptop's keyboard. It also has a NumberPad dual-function touchpad.
Serious nerds will be happy to know that the 15.6in OLED screen is 4K HDR with touchscreen and the extended 14in 4K display is compatible with a stylus too. This offers some extra real estate in a pinch, which can be handy for when you're working on a massive document and don't have the luxury of an external display. On the right, the Asus ZenBook Pro Duo. Android games seems to hit new heights every year.
That second screen is what Asus is calling the ScreenPad Plus, and it gets its name from the fact that...well, it's bigger.
If you think more is better, Asus' ZenBook Pro Duo and ZenBook Pro have screens for you. Multitask. During my demo, I managed to fit three small windows across the expanse of this spacious new screen. Its keyboard appears a bit crammed, and the trackpad is placed to the right (instead of directly below) of the keyboard. The Duo can be specced up to an eight-core Intel Core i9 HK processor with an Nvidia RTX 2060 GPU.
Judging by this generous amount of specifications we only assume that this will be a very expensive handset (Asus isn't announcing pricing yet). That's a compromise presumably driven mostly by cost, but one that shows in side-by-side comparisons - the only kind of comparisons that are really possible, given the two screens are basically touching.

Asus' new ScreenPad works like an interactive secondary touchscreen, which can be used as an app launcher, handwriting tool, Task Viewer, video viewer, and much more. Both screens have HDR (high dynamic range) technology and a 100 percent DCI-P3 color gamut, which is much wider than sRGB.Thanks to Asus' NanoEdge design, the OLED panel is almost bezel-less, delivering more screen to the consumer.
The ZenScreen Touch has a 7,800mAh battery, comes with a protective case that folds up into a kickstand, and it also has ASUS trademark hole in the corner that lets you prop the screen up with a pencil in a pinch.
The Zenbook Duo comes in a smaller form factor, featuring a 14-inch full HD display with a 12.6-inch HD ScreenPad Plus. You get the choice of either 8GB, 16GB or 32GB 2666Mhz DDR4 RAM (but I'd go with 32GB if you're serious about content creation), an Nvidia GeForce RTX2060 with 6GB of GDDR6 VRAM and up to 1TB of PCIe x4 SSD storage.
Overall, it's also nice to see companies like ASUS pushing the boundaries for PCs. Other technologies present include; Wi-Fi 6, BT5.0, Harman Kardon audio, IT Webcam with Windows Hello, and an array mic. Sporting the world's first ScreenPad Plus, it apes any multitasking companions that Apple or the rest of the competition has. The laptops have a minimal bezel design with over 95% screen-to-body ratio. And on the performance front, the Pro Duo is more than a match for current laptops and consumers who don't necessarily want a flashy gaming laptop, can expect solid gaming thanks to the RTX 2060 GPU. So it won't appeal to gamers in the same way as the Pro model, but the discrete graphics will still offer significantly increased horsepower over Intel's integrated graphics. And there's a dedicated turbo cooling button should the Pro Duo start getting a little hot under its collar.
