ASUS ZenBook Flip UX370UA breaks cover on its way through the FCC

It looks like ASUS is gearing up to launch a new entry in its ZenBook Flip line soon, and now have an early look at what's in store. Spotted by the folks at Notebook Italia, the ZenBook Flip UX370UA recently passed through the FCC with some photos in tow. Take a look below:

The notebook retains the convertible design of its predecessors, allowing you to flip the screen 360 degrees between notebook, tablet and tent modes. The notebook itself is also very thin at just under half an inch, and features 4 speakers on the bottom of its chassis. As for the screen, it appears to be a 13.3-inch display, but we'll have to wait until its launch to gather more information.

Outside of its external flourishes, it looks likely that the ZenBook Flip UX370UA will pack at least up to an Intel Core i7-7500U processor. From the photos, we can also see that two USB-C ports are on board, and documentation refers to a dedicated, two-button active pen that you can purchase separately.

Upon closer inspection, this model appears to be the ZenFlip UX370 that was recently referenced in a leaked product slide from ASUS. It's not clear if ASUS will switch to the ZenFlip name, or rather keep the line's current ZenBook Flip designation. We may not have much longer to find out, though: this particular model is reportedly set for release sometime in the second quarter. For its part, Notebook Italia claims we could see the notebook introduced at Milan Design week at the start of April, or at Computex 2017.
