Apple plans to release a 16-inch MacBook Pro in September, according to Jeff Lin, an analyst with research firm IHS Markit.
Lin believes that the 16-inch display will be an LCD provided by LG Display, with a resolution of 3,072 × 1,920 pixels , as highlighted in the latest IHS report , published Thursday. For comparison, the 15-inch MacBook Pro has a resolution of 2880 × 1800 pixels.
We had recently reported that Samsung was negotiating with Apple to supply OLED displays for the 16-inch MacBook Pro, but if the IHS Markit report is accurate, the notebook will have an LCD display instead.
The rumors on the 16-inch MacBook Pro started with the well-known analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. In February, he said the notebook would be launched in 2019 with a ” completely new design “, but did not comment on which display technology the notebook would use or share other details.
