In early December Patently Apple posted a report titled " Top Apple Analyst Kuo Revises his mini-LED display adoption rate due to an all-new Form Factor coming to the M1 MacBook Pro in 2021." Ming-Chi Kuo noted in a report to clients that the adoption rate of mini LED panels in MacBook will be better than expected in 2021. To counter Apple's leap in quality to mini-LED displays for their MacBook Pro this year, Samsung will be upgrading displays for PC notebooks to OLED  in a major way.


According to a new Korean tech report today we're learning that Samsung Display announced on Sunday that it plans to to launch over 10 OLED panels aimed at notebooks this year.


Further, the report notes that Samsung Display is expecting to ship five times the OLED panels for notebook in 2021 compared to a year ago due to continued demand for PCs from the COVID-19 pandemic.


In 2020, the company supplied OLED panels for Razer, HP, Asus, Lenovo and Dell. Panels ranged in 13.3-inch to 15.6-inch in sizes and 1920x1080 and 3820x2160 in resolution.


Samsung Display said it will diversify the size and specification for its OLED panels further this year. Last year, the company launched a 13.3-inch FHD OLED panel. It is planning to launch a 15.6-inch version of the same resolution this year. The company said it was aiming to expand in the mass market.


As we reported earlier today, Samsung will be holding a special event this Wednesday where they're expected to share their "New Vision for Displays." Whether they'll mention their massive shift to OLED displays for PC notebooks, or even mini-LED for 2022 is unknown at this time.


If the news from the event is significant, we'll be sure to follow up with a report. With Samsung being a major Apple supplier, this could be a must-see event.
