There have been various rumors on Apple is working on a 16-inch MacBook Pro and now new information has surfaced, courtesy of sources reporting to DigiTimes. According to the report, the notebook will feature an “ultra-narrow bezel” design which will allow it to be roughly the same overall size as the current 15-inch model.
Another interesting information coming out of the industry publication is that Apple will launch this new MacBook Pro in September. This is, however, not something new we are hearing, a report came last month indicated the same possibility.
An analyst at IHS Markit postulated that Apple will make use of an LCD type display with a 16-inch MacBook Pro model and not the OLED one. Multiple reports have conveyed the 16-inch display is going to have a resolution of 3,072x1,920 pixels resolution. Apple is also said to be planning to use a more durable scissor mechanism keyboard rather than the butterfly mechanism. The predicted keyboard mechanism will not only improve the typing experience and keep the failures due to heat, dust away.
The latest report from DigiTimes doesn’t include anything else but does corroborate a report from the past about September launch of the MacBook Pro. Note that Apple typically launches new MacBooks in October and the reports over a September launch does look like an uncertainty.
Well, more and more reports have begun to consolidate on the 16-inch MacBook Pro existence and even if September is the likely month of the launch of the new notebook, we are still quite far from witnessing it. This means we will continue to hear more rumors and reports on the same. Stay tuned while we collect your more information for you.
