This full-width secondary touchscreen — which has a resolution of 1920×1080 and a higher brightness of 400 nits — automatically tilts upwards by up to 7°, reducing glare and reflections for improved readability.

It makes working with the main four-sided frameless NanoEdge display even more seamless, with endless ways to optimize and personalize workflows. When the laptops are placed on the supplied Duo Stand, the tilted display sits at a stylus-friendly angle, and both displays support the latest 4096-pressure-level devices including the bundled ASUS Pen.

The upgraded Screen Xpert 2 software that powers ScreenPad Plus includes a collection of new and updated built-in apps to help boost productivity, such as the new Window Flick feature that allows users to simply flick windows between displays. The popular Task Group app has an updated design, so users can see their Task Groups at a glance, and lock into work modes instantly by launching multiple apps with a single tap.

ScreenXpert 2 also premieres the exciting new Control Panel, a fully-customizable app that will revolutionize creative workflows. Control Panels gives the user precise and intuitive control in creative apps, with intuitive controls for adjusting brush size, saturation, layer opacity, and much more. Four types of control — Dial, Button, Slider, and Scroll — each work in a different way to give precise and smooth control over parameters. Control Panel currently works with Adobe Photoshop, Lightroom Classic, Premiere and After Effects, and more compatible apps will be announced in the near future.
