TF Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo says Apple will roll out its first products with mini LED technology in 2020. In a research note, the analyst writes Apple is planning up to six devices with mini LED. This reportedly includes a high-end 12.9" iPad Pro for Q3 2020 and a 16" MacBook Pro for Q4 2020.
“We believe that Apple is planning [four to six] mini LED products; the first one that will launch in 3Q20 will be the high-end iPad Pro that will be equipped with the A14X processor and 12.9-inch display; the second one in 4Q20 will be the 16-inch MacBook Pro,” Kuo said in the note distributed on Monday.
Mini LED promises higher contrast than LCD and OLEd, and does not suffer from "burn-in". Kuo believes mini LED will be a big enhancement versus the LCD and OLED screens that are currently used by Apple.
