ASUS has just unveiled its latest Ultrabook at IFA 2014 in Berlin, Germany: the ZenBook UX305. The ZenBook UX305 is similar to the already gorgeous UX301, but it now features a 13.3-inch 3200x1800 display, providing a pixel density of 276PPI.

The new ZenBook UX305 is only 12.3mm thick, making it one of the world's thinnest Ultrabooks to pack a 3200x1800 display. It weighs just 1.2kg (or 2.64lbs) compared to the already light Apple MacBook Air which weighs 1.35kg (or 2.97lbs). ASUS has crafted the ZenBook UX305 with its diamond cut highlights and signature spun-metal finish which comes in two varieties: "Obsidian Stone" or "Ceramic Alloy".

Inside, we don't know much, but Engadget is reporting that it has an Intel Core M processor, 10 hours of battery life, and a choice of 128GB or 256GB SSDs. We should hear more about this new ZenBook in the coming months.
