For a few months now, we have been rumored about a new MacBook Pro with a larger screen that could come with a major design change. Today we have risen with the confirmation that this new Mac will have a 16-inch screen and it will not be the only novelty that will arrive this year.
As reported by Jeff Lin, an analyst at IHS Markit, in Forbes, this new MacBook Pro will have a 16-inch panel of 3,072 × 1,920 pixels of resolution that will be manufactured by LG. In addition to this new model, it is expected that the 13-inch MacBook Pro without Touch Bar and MacBook Air will receive new processors.
We will see new Mac in September
It is not the first time we heard a rumor of this style, Ming Chi-Kuo himself has already reported on the occasion that Apple is preparing a larger MacBook Pro. What is currently unknown is whether this new model of 16 inches will replace the current 15 or complement it.
“WE ANTICIPATE THAT APPLE WILL LAUNCH A NEW MACBOOK PRO AT AN EVENT IN SEPTEMBER IF THERE ARE NO UNEXPECTED DEVELOPMENT ISSUES”
The screen of this new 16-inch MacBook Pro will have a resolution of 3,072 × 1,920 pixels, by comparing the current 15-inch MacBook Pro has a resolution of 2,880 × 1,800 pixels, so the increase will be considerable. In addition, everything indicates that the OLED panels will have to keep waiting and Apple will opt for an LCD screen manufactured by LG Display.
In addition to this new model, Apple will update two of its best-selling MacBooks, the MacBook Air with Retina display and the 13-inch MacBook Pro without Touch Bar. In May we had an update of MacBook components but the most affordable Pro ran out of the news.
This update of the MacBook Air and the 13-inch MacBook Pro will be internally and the biggest novelty will be the new Intel processors. The report says that they will be launched in September of this year, like the iPhone XI, however, Apple usually postpones this update to October.
