Ever since Ming-Chi Kuo talked about Apple reportedly working on a brand-new MacBook device, users and analysts have been excited about the 16-inch MacBook Pro from Apple. After so many rumors and not-so-trustworthy stories, we now have access to the images of the 16” device. Developers wandering inside the macOS Catalina 10.15.1 beta 2 build have found an official render of the upcoming 16-inch MacBook Pro. As the image was found inside an official release of the macOS beta version, there’s no need to worry about its authenticity.
The image as such answers a number of questions people had regarding the whole design philosophy of this supposedly unusual device. Of course, customers have wanted bigger-screen laptops from Apple for quite a long period of time, but this one takes the help of thinner bezels as well. It is expected, and now confirmed from the image, that the 16” MacBook Pro will have the same chassis that we see in 15” MacBook Pro from Apple. However, the company has apparently worked hard to tone down the bezels and increase the screen-to-body ratio at unprecedented levels. This results in an amazingly extra screen space.
Because the render is not aimed at press, much details are not available. As far as the design goes, a lot of elements resemble what we have seen in 15” MacBook Pro devices. At the same time, we can’t ignore a lot of rumors that have emphasized an upcoming, redesigned keyboard system and 96W charging. Also, these devices would be using some of the newest processors from Intel and AMD. It is not yet clear when Apple is planning to bring this device to the limelight but Ming-Chi Kuo had mentioned that the device may be floated later this year or in the first quarter of 2020.
