Apple may even launch a new 16 ″ MacBook Pro later this year

The new ones MacBooks Pro landed last month, but that doesn’t mean Apple is no longer thinking about its next top-of-the-line notebook. So much so that the Cupertino giant, in reality, would 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 information agency, the new MacBook Pro should have a screen with a resolution of 3072 × 1920 pixels, well above the current display of 2880 × 1800 that has equipped the 15 ″ Retina models since 2012. The assumption is not exactly recent, a time that the analyst Ming-Chi Kuo had been promoting here and there that Apple could launch a new 16 ″ notebook.

As the MBP received an update this year, with newer processors and an allegedly revised keyboard design, IHS suggests that the 16 ″ model will usher in a new line of the device, with an estimated price of $ 3,000.

To the Forbes, an MBP of this size could use Intel’s next generation of processors, the H series, which will be launched next July. On the other hand, it is not known which graphics chip Apple would adopt in this future model, considering that the newly launched 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 for its smaller 13 ″ model. In this case, the agency suggests that both this MBP model and the MacBook Air (with Retina display) can be upgraded with a 32GB RAM option, among other improvements.

Both the launch of the new 16 ″ MBP and the upgrade of the 13 ″ Pro / Air models could coincide, according to IHS Markit, with the official launch of macOS Catalina 10.15, which is expected to take place shortly after the next special event from Apple in September this year.

This does not mean, however, that Apple will announce the news of its notebook line during the presentation, being possible that they will only appear on the Apple website before or shortly after the event. It is also likely that this launch will occur in a possible event in October of this year (along with new iPad Pro), after the presentation of the new iPhones – but this is just our guess. We’ll see.
