Apple will probably ship the new MacBook Pro 2016 with a new OLED touchpad above its keyboard, revealed recently leaked images. These pictures substantiate previous predictions made by renowned KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.
A set of images published by Cult of Mac indicates that a new OLED touchpad may be placed above the keyboard of the new models of MacBook Pro 2016.
In a report last month, noted Apple analyst Kuo also mentioned a possible inclusion of an OLED panel in the much rumored 2016 models of MacBook Pro. The physical buttons for function keys on the keyboard may be replaced by OLED display touch bar, added Kuo.
According to the Apple analyst, this move might prove to be one of the “most significant upgrade” made by tech giant. Kuo has brilliant track record when it comes to predicting specs and features of upcoming Apple devices.
In the report, he also stated that the MacBook Pro 2016 line-up will get a thinner and lighter form factor as compared to its predecessor. The tech giant is speculated to introduce a new hinge design, built by metal injection molding.
Moreover, the butterfly mechanism keyboards would help Apple to make the new MacBook Pros thinner than ever. The company may also introduce its iconic Touch ID to the new MacBooks.
Apple will apparently introduce the MacBook Pro 2016 line-up in two screen sizes of 13-inch and 15-inch. The overhauled MacBook Pro models feature USB Type-C and Thunderbolt 3, according to unofficial reports. The MacBook Pro 2016 models are believed to be powered by Intel’s latest Skylake processors paired with 256GB of internal storage space.
Previously, Apple was anticipated to launch its MacBook Pro 2016 models on June 13 at its annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC). But now it seems that the company has deferred the release of the new MacBook Pros to the last quarter of 2016.
