Please type this command in the command prompt: ioreg -lw0 | grep "EDID" | sed "/[^<]*</s///" | xxd -p -r If you see LP, then you got LG panel. If you do not see LP, then you got Samsung. My 2017 macbook pro is Samsung Panel and it is WAY BETTER than my 2018 LG panel in terms of brightness and color. I was wondering how to get the Samsung panel. I have already returned 4 macbook pros but all of them are LG panels.
