New MacBook Pro Rumored Features Are Floating Over Net, Users Speculate A Notch, 120Hz Refresh Rate

Many rumors are making rounds on social media about the complete redesigning of the Apple MacBook Pro before the Apple ‘Unleashed’ event, which Apple Inc scheduled on the 18th of October 2021. Finding the insider updates of Apple products is a tough nut to crack. However, some strong rumors are coming from reputable sources.

Apple will reveal the newly facelifted MacBook pro lineup. According to the speculations floating on social media, the redesigned Macbook will be available in two different screen sizes – 14 inches and 16 inches, stretched to the edges.

What Can Be Expected From Revamped MacBook Pro 2021?

The about to be revealed MacBook will be sporting mini-LED displays that can produce a brightness of up to 1000 nits. As an interesting fact, Apple is offering the 14-inch screen size option after a gap of 14 years. At the same time, the 16 inches screen size option was already available in the Apple MacBook pro. If the sources are to be believed, one of the two pro variants of the MacBook will have a 120Hz screen refresh rate.

MacBook Pro laptops will be built upon an entirely new chassis and apple’s latest processor series, M1X, with ten core CPUs, out of which eight are oversized, and 2 are efficient cores. Additionally, the revamped laptops will have HDMI ports, Micro SD card ports, and the MagSafe power connector. One HDMI port and micro sd card reader slot will be given on the right side. In comparison, A 3.5mm audio jack, two thunderbolt ports, and the MagSafe connector will be present on the left side of upcoming MacBook pro models.

Apple’s M1X chip is a robust version of its previously used M1 chips, powering most iPhones, iMacs, and iPad pro. Apple first launched the M1 chips with iMac back in 2020 and further installed the M1 chips in 13 inches MacBook Pro, MacBook Mini, and MacBook Air. For the uninitiated readers, Apple replaced the intel chips used for Apple devices since 2006 with self innovated M1 chips.

Color Options For MacBook Pro

There are also many speculations about the color options apple will offer for the upcoming MacBook Pro. Silver and space grey colors are the identity of Apple devices. The MacBook Pro has been available in both of the colors mentioned above since 2016.

Apple also introduced midnight and starlight colors for its devices like iPhone 13. So, there’s a little place for expecting new color options if Apple sticks to its holistic approach towards redesigning MacBook Pro. Moreover, there’s a massive demand for matte black color options coming from Apple users.

Rumored Notch

A center notch at the upper edge of the MacBook Pro is also rumored on social media. Several mockups of MacBook pro hosting a center notch comprising a camera are prevalent on the internet and have become the talk of the town.

If the rumor about notch turns out to be accurate, it will help expand the screen to the edges on all sides and augment the looks of redesigned MacBook pro. Additionally, the camera is believed to be 1080 pixels with a truetone sensor and a microphone but will lack a face id feature.

Exclusion Of Touch Bar

It’s also said that the redesigned MacBook Pro will not consist of a touch bar which was the distinct feature of the MacBook pro. Apple is reverting to the class keyboard wholly painted in black color, involving the keyboard buttons.

Thankfully, the Touch Id feature is going to be retained in the latest MacBook models. Touch Id will have tiny illuminating lights in the background, most probably around the edges of touch id.

Apple has organized its unleashed event on the 18th of October 2021. Now, only tomorrow’s ‘unleashed’ event will divulge what speculations were authentic and what was just a smoke of the fire.
