The ZenScreen Fold OLED MQ17QH portable display brings unbounded on-the-go versatility

Life as an ASUS engineer isn’t always easy. Our ZenScreen family of portable displays already travels effortlessly while providing great connectivity, proven durability, and high-quality panels. Yet we challenged our engineers to make a new model that’s not only larger than most of our portable displays, but also more mobile and more versatile. The result of their labors is the ZenScreen Fold OLED MQ17QH. The world’s first foldable OLED portable monitor, and the winner of a coveted CES 2024 Innovation Award, the MQ17QH provides an innovative design that allows you to do more with a portable display than you thought possible — while retaining the go-anywhere convenience of the ZenScreen lineup.

Open up a world of possibilities with ASUS portable displays

When you fully open the ZenScreen Fold OLED MQ17QH, you’ll be treated with a large 17.3-inch display ready to greatly increase your available screen real estate. In landscape orientation, it offers an extra-tall 2560×1920 resolution that shows you more of your primary workspace without scrolling. You might think of it like two 12.5-inch 1920×1080 displays, rotated in portrait mode and placed side-by-side.

As an OLED display, the ZenScreen Fold OLED offers the premium experience you’ve come to expect from this cutting-edge tech. It covers 100% of the cinema-grade DCI-P3 color gamut for bold, saturated colors. Since each pixel is its own light source, it can produce inky blacks for excellent contrast, making it a great choice for use in environments with plenty of ambient light. With its low response time, you get minimal blur when you’re playing a game, watching fast-paced action in your favorite media, or scrolling through content on a website or a social media feed.

With such a bright, high-contrast, colorful display at your disposal, you’ll be tempted to check out the latest HDR entertainment experiences. We’re targeting the requirements of the VESA DisplayHDR True Black 500 certification for the ZenScreen Fold OLED so that you can get immersed in your games and media like never before.

The ZenScreen Fold OLED MQ17QH is ready for any scenario

The ZenScreen Fold OLED’s versatile embedded stand and foldable OLED panel give you an incredible array of options for how you want to deploy it. Propped up in landscape mode, it’s like a desktop display that travels, prepped and ready for seamless multitasking. But it also offers auto-rotation through our easy-to-use ASUS DisplayWidget Center app. That means that you can swap to portrait mode on a whim, using the same embedded stand to give it a stable base.

For even more deployment options, you can use the ZenScreen Fold OLED’s standard ¼” tripod socket to pair it with the ASUS ZenScreen Stand MTS02D. This versatile display stand will make it fast and easy for you set up the MQ17QH at the perfect viewing height and orientation when you’re working at your desk.

Unbounded portability

To keep the ZenScreen Fold OLED supremely portable, we designed it with a waterdrop-style hinge. It’s radically different than the U-shaped hinges that you might have experienced with other devices featuring foldable displays. Designed with hundreds of parts, this detailed mechanism is able to bring the two sides of the closer together, all but eliminating the gap that can make foldable devices chunkier than you’d like. Additionally, this design minimizes any creasing along the spine of the ZenScreen Fold OLED — when the display is active and fully opened, you’ll hardly be able to tell that there’s a hinge behind the display at all.

This waterdrop-style hinge design makes the ZenScreen Fold OLED the most portable 17-inch monitor available. Fully opened, it’s only 9.7mm thick. When you fold it up, it has a profile similar to a 12.5-inch portable display, making it an easy addition to your laptop bag. And since it weighs 1.17kg, it’ll hardly weigh you down on the move.

The folding design also protects the display as you’re traveling. When the ZenScreen Fold OLED is fully closed, its own chassis protects the screen from all angles without the need for a separate case or protector. We include a fabric monitor sleeve in the box to further protect it from everyday wear and tear.

Versatile connection options

The ZenScreen Fold OLED MQ17QH’s versatile design and go-anywhere convenience might already have you thinking about the many ways that you might use it. We equip this monitor with a wide range of connection options so that it’s ready to go wherever and whenever you need it.

It includes two full-function USB Type-C ports, each wired not only to accept a display signal, but also draw power. When you connect it to the USB Type-C port on a compatible device, one cable will be all you need to drive the display. We include a USB Type-C cable with an L-shaped connector to keep the wire from getting in the way or being a distraction.

In addition to the USB Type-C ports, you’ll find a mini-HDMI port ready for you to connect a wide range of devices like game consoles and cameras. A headphone jack lets you enjoy high-quality audio privately while using the ZenScreen Fold OLED MQ17QH.

Your sustainable choice for a portable display

In 2023, we committed to rapidly expanding our already-substantial efforts to pass on a healthier planet to upcoming generations. You’ll see that commitment in the green product packaging design of the ZenScreen Fold OLED MQ17QH. It offers the security you expect for your new device in a design that’s compact and slim, and it’s made with FSC-certified forest products. This OLED portable monitor is also a great choice for anyone who pursues reusable devices — it’s ready to serve double duty as your portable display and your desktop display, letting you get all functionality you need with one display purchase instead of two.
