A new MacBook Pro come here. We don’t know if in 2019 or 2020, but that it will be released, there are not many doubts – even because of the problematic keyboard that Apple launched (the so-called butterfly mechanism) which, after more than three generations, is still giving the company a headache.
And since the keyboard needs to be redesigned, how about taking advantage of and changing other necessary things like a new screen (with smaller borders and that would have 16 inches instead of 15), among other internal technologies that make more sense today? Well, that is the idea.
Although several concepts were created for this machine (with really thin edges and a more rounded design, the French website MacGeneration shared a possible reference to that 16-inch MacBook Pro. And, at least for that image, it will not be that different (visually speaking) from the current model.
The image above was found in macOS Catalina 10.15.1 beta – the second trial version was released yesterday by Apple. The design of the computer seems to be exactly the same as the current one, but notice the screen, as it gained a little more space.
Everything becomes more noticeable when we put this new image (left) and the current MacBook Pro (right) side by side:
The problem is that something like this could easily be created by anyone – and how asset was found by a reader of the French website, there is no way to pinpoint that it is something genuine, at least for now.
For those interested in this supposed machine, the possible discovery serves to, at the very least, reduce expectations – at least around a major change in design.

According to the developer Guilherme Rambo, the image refers to the current MacBook Pro model.
But how, then, is the icon different? Maybe it was rendered by Apple again and she decided to make these modifications to the frame so that everything would be more harmonious, you will know…

Turnaround: Rambo believes that the image may indeed be of the new model! Time will tell.

If there was any doubt about the veracity of the image, the MacRumors tried to confirm her existence with his own eyes:
There are already people seeing even a physical Esc key there, unbelievable:
If that’s the case – just a slightly larger screen and maybe the return of the scissor keyboard (since a Face ID is unlikely at the moment) – it is quite possible that this new MBP does not deserve a keynote. That is, it can be announced at any time by Apple, directly through its website, probably later this year.
The expectation is that this new model will start at US $ 3,000 in the United States.
