In a prior research note, Kuo predicted that Apple would launch both a 31.6-inch screen and a 16-16.5″ MacBook Pro in 2019, so it is not entirely clear if the 15-17″ MacBook identifies another notebook or if Kuo currently considers the 16-16.5″ MacBook Pro is coming a few years later than he initially anticipated.

Apple’s discontinued Thunderbolt Screen
We predict that Apple will launch an all-new layout 31.6-inch screen, a 10–12 inch iPad and a 15–17 inch MacBook equipped with a miniature LED backlight unit (BLU) in 2–3Q19, 4Q20–1Q21 and 1–2Q21.

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

Apple plans to launch a trio of fresh products with Mini-LED backlights over the subsequent two years, including a 31.6″ display in the next or third quarter of 2019, a 10-12″ iPad in late 2020 or premature 2021, along with a 15-17″ MacBook at the first half of 2021, based on renowned analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.
An excerpt from Kuo’s research note, obtained by MacRumors:

We believe 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 because of its longer lifetime and no burn-in problems for Apple’s medium- and – large-size products targeting in productivity rankings.
