The Asus Zenbook UX305 made a bit of a splash when it launched earlier this year thanks to the thin-and-light laptop’s combination of a low price tag and surprisingly strong specs.
Now it looks like Asus is getting ready to launch an updated model featuring Intel’s next-gen Core M processor based on “Skylake” architecture.
Like the original Zenbook UX305, the new model features a 13.3 inch, 1920 x 1080 pixel display, but the new model will feature a Core M-6Y54 processor which should offer better graphics performance than the Core M-5Y10 chip in the original model.
As Notebook Italia notes, there are a number of stores with product pages for the new model, showing several different configurations. It looks like Asus will offer some models with 4GB of RAM and 128GB of solid state storage, and other models with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage.
Both versions will ship with Windows 10 software and feature 802.11ac WiFi and Bluetooth.
Some models also seem to feature touchscreen displays, which might be a mixed blessing: one of the things that helped set the first-gen Zenbook UX305 apart was the fact that it had a matte, non-glossy display. Most devices with touchscreens feature glossy screens.
