MacBook Pro 16 “, Apple lets the photo escape

It’s been a while since we talked about a new MacBook Pro with a larger display but with the same dimensions as the 15 “model, which will be pursued by reducing the thickness of the frame around the display and working with surgical precision. And now, Apple has let slip the photo of the new laptop.

The image you see at the top of the post and immediately above is not a rendering created by a designer based on rumors; it is the MacBook Pro 16 “that could be launched in a few weeks.

The photo was in fact identified within the resources of the first two Beta of macOS Catalina 10.15.1. Therefore it is to be considered 100% reliable. Den for Apple.

“We expect Apple to release a new product at the Apple event in September 2019,” analysts wrote a couple of months ago, “as long as there are no unexpected development problems” of course. And now it looks like we’re in it.

In fact, DigiTimes has confirmed this independently, revealing the launch of an Apple laptop with 3.072 × 1.920 pixel monstre resolution, whose assembly was commissioned to Quanta Computer. The computer will feature a very compact and modern display, provided by LG.

For the rest, no other details are known, except the presence of a more efficient scissor mechanism for the keyboard; but in any case the alternation of rumors leaves no room for doubt: soon, probably within a few weeks, Apple will issue invitations for a special event in which it will present, among other things, this mythical MacBook Pro; for the 13 “models, instead, we’ll talk about them again in 2020. The availability for our country is in autumn.

Those hoping for 10th generation Intel Ice Lake processors will be disappointed. In a note to shareholders, Jeff Lin of IHS Markit revealed in August that the new MacBook Pro 16 “coming later this month will be powered by Intel’s 9th-generation Coffee Lake processors, in line therefore with the 15” Pro released last may.

This implies that it will be possible to configure this machine a la carte with processors up to 8 cores, with a speed of 2.4GHz and maximum Turbo Boost of 5.0GHz; besides of course the options with Core i7 6 Core.

Super-Charger

According to rumors from China, it seems that the MacBook Pro 16 “will be equipped with a new and more powerful 96W battery charger, identified by the alphanumeric code A2166. As for shape and size, it will be very similar to its 87W and USB counterpart -C dedicated to the MacBook Pro 15 “but will deliver more power.

A number we had already seen: it is the maximum electrical power available in pass-through indicated in the official specifications of the XDR Pro Display; more energy than the demands of any existing laptop or Apple device, to see. And now we also know what it will do.
