MacBook Pro 2016 Release Date, Rumors and Reports: Apple Laptop To Sport Intel Kaby Lake, USB-C, 4G LTE, and Come In A Variety Of Colors

Many people highly anticipate the soon-to-be-released MacBook Pro. Some of us can’t wait to see the design and learn about the final specs of the flagship laptop by the Cupertino-based company. New reports now indicate that the MacBook Pro 2016 will have a cellular connection and will be available in a variety of colours.

The most intriguing feature of the MacBook Pro 2016 will be the ability to connect to 4G LTE cellular connection. Imagine using a laptop that does not need Wi-Fi. The fact that the laptop will be slimmer and lighter than the MacBook Air may mean the MacBook Pro 2016 will face out the Air model. Apple is yet to confirm the release of a MacBook Air model this year.

According to Game n Guide, the laptop is also expected to sport the next generation Intel Kaby Lake chipset. The chipset is an improvement of the current Intel Sky Lake. The new processor improves processing speeds as well as lowers the battery consumption. Speculators also suggest that the new processor will boost the 4K video playback and the other video inputs expected such as HDMI 2.0 and 10-bit HEVC. The laptop also has Thunderbolt 3 ports and the already famous USB-C port.

Enough has been said about the USB-C, which first featured in the 12-inch MacBook laptop released last year. The 2015 laptop only has one USB-C port and the 3.5mm audio jack that Apple plans to eradicate. The USB Type C offers faster transfer speeds and can charge laptops as well as phones. Apple earlier suggested that all its products from this year will feature the USB Type-C connectors, including the soon-to-launch iPhone 7 and iPad Air 3.

Other reports indicate that the MacBook Pro 2016 will be available in a wide range of colours. It will come in rose, silver, Space grey and gold. The laptop will have a 15-inch display, but a 13-inch variant will also be available.

As we had reported earlier, the MacBook Pro 2016 is expected to launch in October 2016.

According to Apple Insider, the release of the MacBook Pro 2016 is around the corner as indicated by the fall in prices of existing MacBook laptops. Still, the details of the specs are scarce, but the information above is what we have. Keep visiting us for more details and latest news about the MacBook Pro 2016.
