Display analyst Ross Young today repeated his prediction that Apple’s 14- and 16-inch MacBook Pro models will not offer OLED display technology until 2026.
Young today tweeted a link to his subscribers to a new Reuters report discussing Samsung Display’s $3.1 billion investment in OLED production in Asan, South Korea. The report says the new factory will make OLED display for use on 14- and 16-inch MacBook Pro models from 2026.
Young last month said the MacBook Pro is unlikely to receive an OLED display until 2026. That’s when Apple’s supply chain is expected to have sufficient notebook-ready OLED display production capacity. Until then, says Young, suppliers will focus on producing OLED tablet displays.
Young has also said that a MacBook Air with a slightly smaller, 13.4-inch display will be the first OLED Mac. Samsung Display has reportedly begun developing OLED displays for use in the future MacBook Air model.
Young has an above-average track record when it comes to future Apple products
