A Digitimes supply chain report claims, Apple’s much-anticipated 16-inch MacBook Pro will achieve the larger screen size by making use of narrower bezels. This will allow it to fit in the same case as the 15-inch model.
The report indicates the 16-inch Macbook Pro, which could be released as soon as September, will feature narrower bezels on the display. The thinner bezels will allow the 16-inch screen to fit into the space currently allotted for the 15-inch MacBook Pro’s screen.
Digitimes’ “unnamed sources” in the supply chain says the new 16-inch MacBook Pro will use an LCD screen manufactured by LG Display, and will sport a resolution of 3,072 x 1,920.
The report says the price of the new laptop will be around $3,200. While that price is higher than previously reported, it isn’t clear whether the price is a base price or for a higher configuration.
While the publication has excellent sources inside industry supply chains, they have been incorrect about Apple’s upcoming products several times in the past, so take this report with the usual grain of your favorite low-sodium seasoning.
Previous 16-inch MacBook Pro rumors have claimed the new laptop will feature a return to the old style scissor-style keyboard, and will hit shelves in the fourth quarter, not September as the Digitimes report claims.
