TAIPEI, Taiwan, July 22, 2022 — ASUS today announced ExpertBook B3 Flip (B3402FBA), a refreshed model of the powerful and versatile convertible laptop designed for both hybrid working and learning — empowering maximum flexibility anytime, anywhere.
ExpertBook B3 Flip is built to embrace the future of both work and education. It’s the perfect colleague for business users and pros, and the best companion for educators and students alike. With its versatile and tough design, studying or working everywhere is no longer a dream.
B3 Flip is equipped with a 360° any-position hinge for total display flexibility, a world-facing camera for a new perspective, and a fast-charging garaged stylus for simple, intuitive input. It includes several convenient health protection features, including ASUS Antibacterial Guard and a TÜV Rheinland-certified display for everyday eye care.
The newly-upgraded WiFi 6E technology is further enhanced by ASUS WiFi Master technology for faster, more stable connections; and it’s also supplemented by an optional fast 4G LTE nano-SIM for fast and portable connectivity. Two-way AI-powered noise-cancelation technology and noise-reducing cameras ensure excellent remote learning and conferencing experiences.
All-round versatility for the new normal
The versatile ExpertBook B3 Flip has a 360° any-position hinge that gives it unrivaled flexibility for work or learning: it can be used in tablet mode for taking notes and studying, or in tent mode for easy revision and taking photos. Stand mode gives everyone the perfect view in meetings or presentations.
When drawing, taking notes or marking up documents, the optional garaged stylus lets users get every detail just right. The convenient built-in holder keeps the stylus to hand, reduces the risk of loss, and charges the stylus: a 15-second charge gives enough power for 45 minutes of use, so the user’s workflow will never be interrupted.
B3 Flip includes a standard user-facing webcam, along with a special 13 MP world-facing high-resolution camera1 located on the keyboard surround just below the display — an ideal position that allows users to capture photos and videos in tent mode and tablet mode. This unique dual-camera arrangement overcomes the limitations of single-camera devices, allowing users to capture photos and videos in any mode for any task. This in turn empowers students to explore and learn in totally new ways, and permits professionals and workers to multitask more efficiently.
AI-powered noise cancelation
To level up remote learning and professional conferencing, B3 Flip has two-way AI noise-canceling technology that employs sophisticated machine-learning techniques. The technology includes both an upstream function to filter noise around the speaker, and a downstream function to eliminate noise from the person at the other end of the conversation — ensuring voice calls and video chats are crystal clear, no matter where they occur.
Moreover, video-conferencing and remote-learning experiences are also further enhanced by the innovative 3D noise-reduction (3DNR) technology and physical webcam shield on B3 Flip’s webcam. Besides offering instant privacy by the webcam shield, 3D noise-reduction technology helps reducing up to 94% of the random noise that naturally affects any camera, especially in low-light situations, greatly enhancing image quality without affecting exposure or detail levels.
Fast mobile connectivity and reliability
Built to allow safe, secure and speedy data connections everywhere for work or learning, ExpertBook B3 Flip includes fast 4G LTE mobile data connectivity. It also offers up to the latest WiFi 6E technology that delivers ultrafast and stable speeds for online learning and super-smooth business meetings, and which is enhanced with ASUS WiFi Master technology for faster and more reliable WiFi connections at greater distances than ever before.
Life on the road is tough, so B3 Flip is designed to both meet and surpass exacting industry durability standards — including the ultra-demanding MIL-STD 810H US military standard. It’s built to survive every extreme, from freezing temperatures to the searing heat of desert storms, and from high-speed shocks to everyday bumps.
B3 Flip also undergoes stringent and industry-leading in-house testing, including panel-pressure, shock and drop tests for an assurance of serious durability. The keyboard is reinforced with an internal bracket, and it also has a water-resistant layer that can cope with liquid spillages of up to 400 cc without harm.
Everyday health protection
To keep ExpertBook B3 Flip hygienic, the keyboard, touchpad and palm rest are all protected with ASUS Antibacterial Guard.This special treatment has been scientifically shown by the internationally-recognized ISO 22196 standard to inhibit the growth of bacteria by in excess of 99% over a 24-hour period. ASUS Antibacterial Guard is also made to withstand alcohol-based cleaning products and hypochlorous acid water, so it’s easy to keep the surface of B3 Flip clean and sanitary — limiting the spread of harmful bacteria.
B3 Flip’s two-sided, slim-bezel, multitouch screen provides intuitive input for modern learning and working experiences. The display is also certified by TÜV Rheinland for low blue-light emissions, so users can study or work without worrying about their eyes being harmed by blue light.
Built for future of work and education
The powerful ExpertBook B3 Flip makes light work of all business tasks, courtesy of its up to 12th Generation Intel® Core™ i7 processor and Intel Iris® Xe graphics, which deliver quick and responsive computing with lively graphics performance. It also features onboard memory and a SO-DIMM slot for upgrading memory up to 40 GB, so it’s ready for everything, now or in the future. These powerful credentials also ensure that B3 Flip is fit for the multitasking that’s essential for modern learning and entertainment — from taking online classes to streaming movies.
To keep up with the future norms of work and education, B3 Flip is designed with sustainable, reliable, agile, and durable materials that surpass Energy Star, EPEAT Silver, ASUS’ stringent durability tests, and MIL-STD 810H US military standards. Its premium-grade security features offer seamless daily operation and user data protection in support of the needs of enterprises and professional academic institutions, featuring a fingerprint sensor, TPM 2.0 security, BIOS booting user password protection, a Kensington lock slot, a physical webcam shield, and more.
