The Zephyrus Duo 15 features a 15.6-inch display which comes in two options, you can either choose a lower resolution with 300 Hz refresh rate and 3 ms response time panel. Or else, you can go for a 4K resolution which meets 100% of the Adobe RGB colour standard which is Pantone validated for colour accuracy.

It comes with per-key RGB lighting support with 1.4mm key travel and n-key rollover while numpad is baked into the touchpad itself and can be activated with the touch of a button.
