As some of you have heard, Apple is working on a MacBook Pro refresh that could launch later this year. One of the main changes, along with a new design and new size option, is that Apple could finally give the display an upgrade where instead of LCD, they might use mini LED, but that could change again in 2022.
This is according to a report from The Elec who claims that Samsung could be the ones to supply Apple with OLED panels that could find their way into the 2022 MacBook Pros. The report claims that Samsung is working to try and build OLED screens bigger than 10-inches, and that this could be used to attract Apple to consider using the tech for their laptops.
While it is intriguing, we reckon this will only add to the confusion. Apple’s products right now are a mix of LCD, mini LED, and OLED. While this is a good way to distinguish between the products, we’re not sure how some customers might feel about using mini LED one year and then going OLED the next.
So far the only OLED Apple devices are the iPhone and Apple Watch, while the iPad Pro is the only Apple product to date that uses mini LED. In any case, there’s no guarantee that any of this will happen so don’t get your hopes up just yet, but hopefully Apple’s MacBook Pro launch later this year will give us a better idea of the direction the company is headed.
