Apple is set to announce its new MacBook Pro lineup towards the end of October. In June we reported of rumors that one of the new features in these new laptops will be an OLED touch bar, a secondary display placed above the keyboard (instead of the function keys). You can see a proposed render (this is not an official photo of course): MacBook Pro render (Source: Martin Hajek) Since June, more reports surfaced that confirm the secondary-OLED. It seems that most analyst now agree that the MacBook Pro will indeed come with this interesting OLED strip. A leaked Chassis image from June, which you can see above, supports these rumors. I’m sure Apple will find very nice use cases for such a display on a laptop. It is interesting to try and figure out the effect of Apple’s secondary MacBook Pro OLED on the OLED market itself.

NFL Network, an American sports-oriented cable and satellite television network, installed several transparent OLED displays at its NFL GameDay Studio. The studio now hosts a total of six 55″ FHD transparent Planar LookThru OLED monitors. The NFL Network says that the idea was to give the a show a technological forward-looking sense. Planar Systems unveiled its first 55″ Full-HD transparent OLED prototype in February 2015 , and started accepting orders for the Planar LookThru displays in November 2015 for $14,995. Planar is using Samsung’s 55″ transparent OLED (announced in June 2015 ) – which was supposed to start shipping in Q2 2016 – but actually Samsung halted production last month – which means that Planar will probably won’t be able to sell a lot of these displays (maybe the NFL Network will be happy to know that).
