An excerpt from Kuo’s research note, acquired by MacRumors:

We feel that mini LED, compared to OLED, will probably be much more suitable solution to offer wide-color gamut (WCG)/high-contrast/high dynamic range (HDR)/neighborhood dimming features due to its longer life and no burn-in issues for Apple’s medium- and large-size goods targeting at productivity positions.

Apple plans to establish a trio of fresh goods with Mini-LED backlights over the subsequent two decades, including a 31.6″ display in the next or third quarter of 2019, a 10-12″ iPad in overdue 2020 or early 2021, along with a 15-17″ MacBook in the first half 2021, based on renowned analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.

Kuo thinks that the 31.6-inch screen”will aim a very high-end position” and attribute an”all-new design.”


In a previous research note, Kuo predicted that Apple would launch both a 31.6-inch display along with a 16-16.5″ MacBook Pro in 2019, so it’s not completely clear if the 15-17″ MacBook refers to a separate notebook or if Kuo currently considers the 16-16.5″ MacBook Pro is coming a few years later than he initially anticipated.
