Several Apple leaks have hinted at a possible notch display on Apple’s next MacBook Pro models, such as the iPhone 13. Apple is expected to launch a new MacBook Pro lineup in the near future including a 14-inch model and a new 16-inch model, and according to GSM Arena, it may come with notches on the screen.
Rumor has it that the new gadget will feature a bouncy mini LED display, with a much thinner backlight area and supposedly capable of up to 1000 nits of brightness. Several reports claiming to be familiar with actual panel production also state that at least one of the two Pro models will also have a 120Hz refresh rate and a screen notch. Notches can be placed to accommodate the new display’s nearly borderless design, with square corners, which are reminiscent of the aesthetics of today’s iPads and iPhones.
According to GSM Arena, the notch will house the 1080p camera, TrueTone sensor, and microphone, but “Face ID”, which is also rumored for the notch, doesn’t appear to be the case. Speculation regarding the display also suggests that Apple will pull the iOS-style move and sort of designate those 74 pixels (presumably the exact height of the notch) as a “custom area,” with the option to process the rest. standard 16:10 panel, effectively “hiding” the notch. There are even reports of some strategically designed laptop wallpapers circulating.
The MacBook Pro 14 and 16 will also run on the M1X chip. GSM Arena reports a more powerful variant of the current Apple M1, with a 10-core processor with 8 large cores and 2 efficient cores and the number of GPU cores has doubled or never quadrupled. All created by TSMC on node 5NP. Apparently, we can expect a slightly bigger and heavier chassis on the newer MacBook Pro models, to accommodate the two large fans for cooling.
Apparently, both laptops will ditch the Touch Bar and return to a more traditional keyboard, albeit a redesigned one. Gadgets can have an all-black color scheme including buttons and backplate. Touch ID can be backlit. The upcoming MacBook Pro models will also be rich in ports, with HDMI, Thunderbolt, and SD card readers on the right side and another two Thunderbolt ports, as well as a 3.5mm audio jack and a new MagSafe connector on the left.
