The first iPad Pro with a mini LED screen would be launched during the first quarter of 2021. The launch was to take place before the end of 2020, but the company seems to have been forced by the pandemic to postpone its release.
If there is an Apple product expected to date, it is the next iPad Pro 2021 . Apple is in fact expected to unveil its next LCD screen technology called mini LED . The method promises to deliver virtually the same contrasts as OLED technology, while taking advantage of a larger color space , while keeping costs at reasonable levels.
OLED technology remains expensive for this screen format , and does not yet provide colorimetric precision equivalent to that offered by the best LCD technologies. The mini LED technology in this respect resembles, on paper at least, Samsung’s QLED technology. Going further: several tens of thousands of white LEDs will provide backlighting, allowing particularly precise local dimming .
The iPad Pro mini LED will arrive in Q1 2021
The first iPad Pro with a mini LED display was expected to launch before the end of 2020 . According to Apple Insider, it seems that the company has been constrained by the coronavirus pandemic – difficulties which would now be resolved. Analyst Fan Chin-Yung at Epistar now estimates that “mini LED chip shipments will start contributing to consolidated revenues in the first quarter of 2021” .
This therefore anticipates a launch before the end of the next three months. The mini LED screen should quickly be found in other products of the firm.
We think in particular of macs computers , which could benefit from the lower consumption of this component compared to current LCD technologies. The addition would in any case be in the tones of machines already very gifted in terms of autonomy.
