The new ones MacBooks Pro landed last month, but that doesn't mean that Apple is no longer thinking about its next high-end notebook. So true that the Cupertino giant would actually be ready to launch a new 16-inch MacBook Pro later this year, according to an IHS Markit report released by Forbes.
According to the news agency, the new MacBook Pro should have a screen with a resolution of 30721920 pixels, well above the current display of 28801800 that has equipped the 15 ? Retina models since 2012. The assumption is not exactly recent, since the analyst Ming Chi Kuo I was telling here and there that Ma could launch a new 16 ? notebook.
As the MBP received an update this year, with newer processors and a supposedly revised keyboard design, IHS suggests that the 16 ? model usher in a new device line, priced at $ 3,000.
To the Forbes, such an MBP will be able to use Intel's next-generation H-series processors, which will be released next July. On the other hand, it is not known which graphics chip Apple would adopt in this future model, considering that the newly released 15 ? MBP still uses AMD Radeon Pro Vega 20 graphics.
MacBook Pro / Air Retina
Like Kuo, IHS Markit also reported that Apple plans to leverage the settings of its smaller 13 ? model. In this case, the agency suggests that both this MBP model and MacBook Air (with Retina display) could be upgraded with a 32GB RAM option, among other enhancements.
Both the launch of the new 16 ? MBP and the upgrade of the 13 ? Pro / Air models may coincide, according to IHS Markit, with the official release of macOS Catalina 10.15, which is expected to take place shortly after the next special event. Apple in September this year.
This does not mean, however, that Apple will announce the news of its notebook lineup during the presentation, and it may only appear on Apple's website before or shortly after the event. It is also likely that this release will take place in a possible event this October (next to new iPads Pro), after the presentation of new iPhones but this is just our guess. We'll see.
