ASUS Announces Vivobook S 16 Flip OLED (TP3604)
ASUS today announced Vivobook S 16 Flip OLED (TP3604), a convertible 16-inch laptop that's just 19.6 mm slim and 1.9 kg light. It's designed to give users the 360° of freedom they need to explore all the possibilities. Available in stylish Midnight Black or Cool Silver, this exciting laptop is built to be tough, undergoing the world's strictest US military-grade durability testing regime[i], and features the formidable power of the latest 13th Gen Intel® Core™ H-series processors and a long-lasting 70 Wh battery.
Users can treat their eyes to the gorgeous visuals on the 3.2K 120 Hz OLED NanoEdge touchscreen with its Corning® Gorilla® Glass NBT™ scratch-resistant covering, and capture all their greatest ideas using the optional ASUS Pen 2.0, an MPP 2.0 stylus with 4096 pressure levels.
Built with hygiene in mind, ASUS Vivobook S 16 Flip OLED uses ASUS Antimicrobial Guard Plus to inhibit the growth of viruses and bacteria by up to 99% on frequently-touched surfaces. Its environmental credentials are solid, too: it uses 30% post-consumer recycled (PCR) plastics in its construction, and is shipped in 100% recyclable packaging.
Vivobook S 16 Flip OLED is powered by up to a 13th Gen Intel Core i9-13900H processor with 14 cores that makes every task easier, whether it’s streaming, browsing, editing, video chatting, or just taking care of business at home. Capable of being boosted up to a CPU thermal design power (TDP) of 45 watts, it’s the fastest performing processor generation to date and is accompanied by up to Intel Iris® Xe graphics.
To unleash the full power of the processor, the ASUS IceCool thermal technology in Vivobook S 16 Flip OLED uses up to 8 mm and 6 mm heat pipes, and an IceBlade fan that efficiently accelerates heat transfer. And with up to 16 GB of RAM, a 1 TB SSD storage, Vivobook S 16 Flip OLED always makes daily work easy and convenient.
WiFi 6E[ii] (802.11ax) allows users to load online content in the blink of an eye, and it’s made even better by ASUS WiFi Master technology, which includes ASUS WiFi SmartConnect that automatically selects the best WiFi source, so the laptop connects seamlessly to the best WiFi signal and known mobile hotspots.
A visual feast
Visual enjoyment is assured with the gorgeous up to 16:10 3.2K (3200 x 2000) 120 Hz / 0.2 ms OLED NanoEdge touchscreen on Vivobook S 16 Flip OLED, which is covered with tough Corning Gorilla® Glass NBT™ for enhanced resistance to scratches and fingerprints. It brings ideas to life with its vibrant 100% DCI-P3 color gamut and expansive 85.6% screen-to-body ratio.
The PANTONE® Validated and VESA DisplayHDR™ True Black 500 certification means that it delivers accurate colors and shows the deepest possible blacks. And with eye-care certification from both SGS and TÜV Rheinland, eyes are well-protected with the low blue-light emissions.
There’s also a color sensor that detects ambient light levels and automatically adjusts the brightness and color temperature of the screen to provide the best-looking image according to the surroundings. Additionally, an auto-dimming feature helps maximize the lifespan of the OLED display.
Durable and portable
At just 19.6 mm slim and 1.9 kg light, Vivobook s 16 Flip OLED is never a burden, and it looks great too, with a choice of trendy Midnight Black or Cool Silver finishes.

Vivobook S 16 Flip OLED is designed with the user in mind, with many features designed to improve their productivity and comfort.
To help keep the laptop hygienic, Vivobook S 16 Flip OLED features ASUS Antimicrobial Guard Plus on frequently touched surfaces[iii]. This inhibits viruses and bacteria and it is scientifically shown — using the ISO 217021[iv] and 221962[v] standards — to inhibit their growth by more than 99% over a 24-hour period[vi].
For typing comfort, Vivobook S 16 Flip OLED is equipped with a full-size 19.05 mm-pitch ASUS ErgoSense keyboard, with long 1.4 mm key travel, 0.2 keycap dishes.
To make the laptop as eco-friendly as possible, the device is constructed with 30% post-consumer recycled (PCR) plastics, and the packaging is 100% recyclable.
The Dolby Atmos® certified audio system — powered by a smart amplifier and ASUS Audio Booster technology for 5.25X louder sound — delivers music, movies or podcasts with crystal-clear multi-dimensional sound. 3D Audio technology can track the user's position in real time and adjust the direction of sound to make sure the user is always in the ideal listening spot. ASUS AI noise-cancelation technology filters out ambient noise for optimum group conference-call quality.
[i] Selected products are tested using enhanced military-grade MIL-STD-810H durability standards, with 12 test methods and 26 test procedures, to ensure extraordinary toughness. Based on ASUS internal market research using available information and testing reports from main laptop brand websites on Oct 28, 2022, ASUS consumer laptops use a regime consisting of 26 test procedures, which is the consumer laptop industry’s strictest and most extensive test regime for the MIL-STD-810H standard.
[ii] WiFi 6E availability may vary by country according to their specific regulations. Feature only supported by Windows 11 or later.
[iii] ASUS Antimicrobial Technology is applied to the laptop areas that users touch most frequently. ASUS Antimicrobial Guard Plus is applied to the palm rest area and keyboard . ASUS Antimicrobial Guard is applied to the power button/fingerprint sensor and touchpad. A sticker on the laptop will help to identify the device is covered by Antimicrobial Guard Plus or Antimicrobial Guard due to different spec configuration.
[iv] ISO 21702 specifies the correct methods for measuring antiviral activity on plastics and other non-porous surfaces of antiviral-treated products. Test viruses used in this international standard are as follows: influenza, an enveloped virus known to cause respiratory tract infection in humans; feline calicivirus, a non-enveloped virus used in place of noroviruses known to cause enteric pathogens due to similar biological properties.
[v] ISO 22196:2011 specifies a method of evaluating the antibacterial activity of antibacterial-treated plastics, and other non-porous, surfaces of products (including intermediate products).
[vi] Clinical testing using the ISO 21702 and ISO 22196 standard protocol proved that viral and bacterial growth were inhibited by 99% over a 24-hour period. A 99% reduction in potentially harmful microorganisms is defined as the number of viruses and bacteria on the surface dropping from 1,000,000 (cfu/pfu) to 100 (cfu/pfu).
