Apple is rumored to release MacBook Pro (2020) sometime next month. Jon Prosser, a well-known YouTuber and tipster, has tweeted that the new MacBook Pro will bear the codename J223. It will be a successor to the currently available 13-inch MacBook Pro but is also speculated to receive a display size upgrade to 14-inches.
Other than the bigger display, MacBook Pro (2020) is further rumored to offer a mini-LED display panel. It will make it only one of the few laptops in the market with the display panel. If it is indeed released with a 14-inch panel, it will be replacing the 13-inch model that will get discontinued after the launch. This is in line with a previous leak shared by reliable tipster Ming-Chin Kuo in the beginning of the last month.

One major issue with the current 13-inch MacBook Pro is its butterfly keyboard. It is known to suffer from fewer durability issues which is the reason Apple released MacBook Air (2020) with the scissor keyboard mechanism. It is expected that we might see a similar keyboard mechanism change with the Pro model too,
Additionally, we can expect Apple to offer a processor upgrade with the new MacBook Pro (2020). This is pretty much what is known about the upcoming model and we should know more details in the coming weeks. We will keep you updated on all the new information.
