Although the upcoming 16-inch MacBook Pro will target professionals who have a generous budget and is rumored to start at US$3,000, we are also hearing that Apple will not move to an OLED panel. The yet-to-be-confirmed portable is expected to feature an LCD panel with a resolution of 3,072 x 1,920 pixels.

The 16-inch MacBook Pro has already surfaced in a few rumors, but its launch seems to be at least a few months away. For now, there is no official confirmation to talk about yet, but at least we got a few more details thanks to a new rumor that also involves a starting price. 

The aforementioned report claims that the 16-inch MacBook Pro will have a starting price of no less than US$3,000. Unfortunately, the same leak also reveals that Apple will not make the move to an OLED panel for the upcoming portable and will stick to the old LCD technology instead. The companies in charge with the assembly of the new MacBook Pro are rumored to be Quanta and Foxconn. The 16-inch LCD panel of the next-gen MacBook Pro is rumored to provide 3,072 x 1,920 pixels.

Now, the problem that remains in the dark is the launch date of this 16-inch MacBook Pro. Apple has never unveiled a new notebook at its annual iPhone keynote that takes place in September in the past, so it is rather safe to assume that things are not going to be different this year. However, it is possible for the new MacBook Pro to be unveiled at a separate event that could be scheduled around the same date.

Would you pay US$3,000 or more for a MacBook Pro with a 16-inch LCD panel or not? Do you think that Apple is keeping the LCD technology around just to get a better profit or because these panels provide better brightness and use slightly less power?

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
