After retrieving OLED monitors to the iPhone line, Apple has been rumored to do the same with selected MacBook Pro and iPad Pro models in the future. Some reports earlier this year said Apple is developing a 16-inch MacBook Pro design that can be introduced in a few years. An insider who is accurate with his previous Apple premise, also said when Apple also worked on new iPad models, hardly a surprising revelation, when Apple launches new tablets every year. A new report from Korea now says Samsung has been in talks with Apple to deliver OLED displays for both of these products.

The report does not mention any details of these Apple products, but it emphasizes that the screens would be even thinner than before, which could contribute to the upgrading of battery sizes on tablets. It's also likely that a 16-inch OLED MacBook Pro will probably be about the same size as the current 15.6-inch model, so we're probably looking at an up-to-date full-screen design.
OLED monitors are superior to the LCD screen, and the feature certainly makes sense for the future of MacBook Pro and iPad Pro generations. Two of Apple's latest three iPhone sports OLED monitors from Samsung, and Apple are expected to eliminate iPhone LCD monitors in the following years. But OLED monitors are also more expensive than LCDs, which may explain why only Pro devices will get the upgrade.
This is just speculation, as the report focuses on the technology of Samsung's OLED laptops and tablets monitors. The Elec also says that Samsung Display aggressively presses OLED displays on devices larger than smartphones.
Other computer vendors, including HP and Lenovo, have already launched laptops with OLED displays, but it is unclear when this rumored 16-inch MacBook Pro would turn stores. Apple upgraded the MacBook Pro line a few days ago, focusing on incremental performance improvements, as well as a significant keyboard update. Therefore, the MacBook Pro is not expected to be updated soon. Image Source: Apple
