A new report has found evidence that Apple is planning to release three new MacBook devices during its “Hello again” event this Thursday. Based on the Eurasian Economic Commission filing that was discovered recently, the Cupertino giant could be launching two new MacBook Pros and one new MacBook Air.
According to MacRumors, French website Consomac apparently found a Russian-language filing that gives clues on what devices Apple is preparing to launch this week. The filing is said to contain details about three new laptops that are running macOS Sierra.
The identified devices have model numbers A1706, A1707 and A1708 and all three are described to be “portable personal computers.” This just means Apple could only be debuting new laptops during its upcoming event, leaving no room for consumers to see new iMacs, Mac minis and Mac Pros during the final quarter of the year.
Other details in the filing indicate that there are two new MacBook Pros — one 13-inch variant and another with a 15-inch display. The other portable computer, on the other hand, comes with a 13-inch screen. The latter is believed to be the refresh of the Air line of thin laptops.
AppleInsider reports the details in the filing are actually consistent with the things KGI analyst Ming-Chi Kuo previously said. Kuo stated before that the Cupertino giant is releasing revamped 13-inch and 15-inch MacBook Pros and a MacBook Air refresh.
Previous rumors and leaks have claimed that the new MacBook Pro models will sport an OLED touch bar that will replace the topmost function keys of the keyboard. Touch ID sensor is also rumored to be embedded into the power button.
Recent reports added that the revamped MacBook Pro is going to come equipped with Intel’s Skylake processors and the AMD “Polaris” graphics for the top-tier variants. There is also word that Apple is introducing new high-end models that will come with 2TB SSD storage.
The news about the filing comes in the wake of the release of Apple’s macOS Sierra 10.12.1, which is said to come with new features and support for the hardware tweaks present in the new MacBook Pro.
