We are now less than a week away from Apple (probably) unveiling a couple of new MacBook Pro models. One being a brand new 14-inch model, while the other will be a revitalized 16-inch option. So it isn’t all that surprising that new rumors are cropping up, trying to paint a picture of what we can expect next week.
That’s where leaker “Dylandkt” comes in. According to their latest tweets, Apple will indeed be making some noteworthy changes to the upcoming 14- and 16-inch MacBook Pro models. First and foremost, the latest rumor echoes what we heard earlier today regarding the new MacBook displays. Specifically, that they will be mini-LED panels. There’s no mention of a faster 120Hz refresh rate, though.
From there, Dylan says the new MacBook Pro models will feature “smaller bezels” and that Apple won’t prominently feature a bottom logo, either. Which would be quite the change all by itself! However, while the new MacBook Pro models are said to have smaller bezels, there will still be a 1080p HD webcam for video calls and what not.
Dylan adds that the upcoming laptops will boast 16GB of RAM in the base models. What’s more, the new devices will also have 512GB of built-in storage in the base models, too. But Dylan also states that “pricing will be similar” between the two upcoming models (the 14- and 16-inch variants).
Finally, Dylan says that the new MacBook Pro models will have a new “charging brick” as well. Which could lineup with the rumors that Apple will be welcoming back the MagSafe charging option in this year’s MacBook Pro refreshed lineup.
Nothing is official just yet, of course, but we don’t have long to wait. Apple’s “Unleashed” event is set to take place on Monday, October 18.
