LG Display, a major supplier for Apple's OLED panels, has announced the mass production of the industry's first 13-inch tandem OLED panel designed specifically for laptops.

This new panel, which is more durable and performs better than traditional single-layer OLED panels, is a major advancement in the industry.

The tandem OLED technology, previously developed for cars, uses two stacks of RGB layers to reduce power consumption by 40% and boost brightness threefold. The new laptop panel is also 40% thinner and 28% lighter, enhancing portability.

The panel features a high resolution of 2880×1800 and meets the DCI-P3 standard for accurate color. Its self-emissive pixels and infinite contrast ratio have earned it the Display HDR True Black 500 certification, ensuring high-quality image display. LG Display has also added a touch sensor to its new panel, indicating potential use in touchscreen devices.

Currently, no Macs feature OLED displays. However, according to a report by Jeff Pu of Haitong International Technology Research, Apple is actively developing an OLED screen for the MacBook Air, with an OLED MacBook Pro expected to be released first. Bloomberg's Mark Gurman has also reported that a new MacBook Pro with an OLED display could be the first touchscreen Mac, potentially launching in 2025.
