DisplaySearch claims 13.3-inch 2560x1600 Macs on the way

Written by Fuad Abazovic



Production Q3, launch Q4 2012


Research outfit DisplaySearch talked about 15.4-inch panels with insane 2880x1800 resolution back in Q1 2012 and needless to say they got this one right.

They even wrote that Apple is the most likely candidate to use this monster screen with near-Retina density and they were not wrong about that either.

Now they are telling the world that 13.3-inch 2560x1600 resolution panels are being prepared for production in Q3 2012. Apple is again the most likely customer and OEM supply chain sources indicate that Apple will use this panel in MacBook Pro unit to be launched in fourth quarter this year.

The product volume is expected to be roughly twice that of the 15.4-inch version and needless to say that 2560x1600 doubles the pixel density of existing 13.3 inch MacBook Pro that is stuck with 1280x800 screens.

DisplaySearch claims that Apple is leading the change toward higher resolution panel adoption and we can expect that many others will follow. The bad thing for the competition is that these high density panels will be very hard to get at first and needless to say Apple will get the best price.
