Apple has long been rumoured to be releasing a larger MacBook Pro for people who need a bigger screen, but with all the portability that the MacBook Pro offers, and while the Cupertino giant has so far not made any such announcements, a new report now suggests that the bigger MacBook Pro might finally be coming this September.
The report comes from analyst Jeff Lin from the research firm IHS Markit. According to Lin, the 16-inch MacBook Pro will have a display made by LG Display, and will boast of a 3072×1920 pixels resolution.
In an email, reported by Forbes, Lin says “We foresee that Apple will release a new product [at the] Sep’19 Apple event if there’s no unexpected development issue.”
This isn’t the first we’ve heard of this new 16-inch MacBook Pro. Back in February, famed Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said that a 16-inch MacBook Pro will be launched sometime in 2019, with a new design.
While Kuo didn’t mention anything about the display technology, or the company making the display, Korean website The Elec recently reported that Samsung was in talks with Apple to provide OLED displays for this upcoming MacBook Pro. However, if the IHS Markit report is to be believed, the Cupertino giant apparently chose to go with LCD panels instead.
Either way, if this report is true, then Apple will be launching the 16-inch MacBook Pro alongside its new iPhones at the September Apple event. So, are you excited about a bigger MacBook Pro, let us know in the comments.
