Apple has announced that it will hold a new product launch event on October 19 at 1:00 am. The theme of the event is “Unleashed”. It is expected to release new M1X MacBook Pro products, AirPods 3, etc.

A piece of new information claims that the new MacBook Pro will use the latest and more powerful M1X chip. Apart from this, it will also use Mini LED display technology with a screen refresh rate of up to 120Hz.

Recently, several digital bloggers have come up with a rough configuration, revealing that Apple’s redesigned MacBook Pro model screen may have a notch that includes a webcam.

Zhihu user @LycheeLi Lizhili said that the new MacBook Pro is a notebook with a notch screen, a MiniLED 1000nits screen, and a Face ID and Touch ID at the same time. It is thicker, heavier, and more stylish. Interfaces include MagSafe, HDMI, SD, and Modern Display and have Bottom lettering as well as a black keyboard.

Also, Weibo bloggers revealed that the new MacBook Pro’s bangs are identical to the iPhone 12 version. Higher to screen ratio, smaller bezels. There is also greatly enhanced dual-fan heat dissipation, 100W cooling capacity.

Moreover, as per the report by MacRumors, a Reddit netizen posted that the new MacBook Pro will use the standard-sized notch instead of the smaller one in the iPhone 13 series.

However, the new MacBook Pro’s notch doesn’t have a Face ID TrueDepth camera like the iPhone, but it does have a 1080p webcam, True Tone sensor, and a microphone.

It is said that even if there is a notch at the top of the display, Apple may not provide a quad-wide bezel for the MacBook Pro. This bang groove design is also expected to appear on the redesigned MacBook Air in 2022.

Some Reddit users also say that the new 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro resolutions will reach 3024 x 1964 and 3456 x 2234. When 74 pixels are subtracted from the height of two, 3024×1890 and 3456×2160 are equal to a 16:10 aspect ratio.

All of Apple’s current MacBooks have an aspect ratio of 16:10, so it seems reasonable with a height that allows 74 pixels.
