Apple's 16-Inch MacBook Pro To Be Revealed Soon; Launch Date Possibly In December

A bigger screen and new keyboard

There hasn't been any news from Apple about the MacBook Pro this year, and initial expectation of there being an announcement in an October has seen the month come and go with no word. So it comes to a surprise that we're getting some updates now as we reach towards the end of the year. According to Bloomberg, Apple may introduce a revamped MacBook Pro "as soon as" November 13th, which is likely tonight or tomorrow based on Malaysian timing.

There isn't much revealed other than that, though we can expect a larger screen and revamped keyboard on the MacBook pro. Apparently, Apple is moving away from 15-inch screens and heading towards a higher-resolution 16-inch screen in hopes to appeal to video and photo editors, gamers and software developers.

In terms of specs, Apple will adopt Intel’s 9th generation H-series CPUs, likely the Core i9-9880H Processor which has a base frequency of 2.40 GHz and a max Turbo Boost frequency of 5 GHz and packs 8 cores. It will also likely come with an LED display rather than OLED, with its 3072 x 1920 resolution and have a slimmer bezel. It's still unclear if Apple will switch the Butterfly switches to scissor switches. 

Engadget shares that a tipster has claimed that Apple would ship the redesigned Mac Pro in December, which means Apple could still launch in their promised fall window. But whether or not it's true, we will have to wait until Apple makes an official announcement which hopefully means soon enough.
