The rumored — and expected — 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pros could come with higher resolution. This hypothesis comes from the hand of the seventh beta of macOS Monterey, the new operating system of the apple company scheduled to be released to the public later this year.
As indicated MacRumors, macOS Monterrey guts reveal two new screen resolutions. The system graphics configuration files mention “Retina 3456 x 2234” and “Retina 3024 x 1964“, options that are not present in any current or previous Apple product.
The 13-inch MacBook Pro has a screen with a resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels per inch. For its part, the current 16-inch MacBook Pro has a resolution of 3072 x 1920. This seems to indicate that the new resolutions are intended for Apple’s next professional notebooks.
If the assumption is correct, the 14- and 16-inch MacBook Pro displays would arrive with an increase in pixel density of around 250 pixels per inch. This would allow offering a high native resolution, rather than rescaled, which would result in a sharper and cleaner image.
It should be noted that the files in which the new resolutions were found also include others. That is, they have all the configurations supported by the operating system. However, as he points out MacRumorsOnly those corresponding to Apple products are presided over by the word “Retina”, as in this case.
New MacBook Pro and more news
According to leaks and rumors, the new 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pros could arrive later this year with multiple changes. These include a new flat-edged design without the characteristic “MacBook” legend on the bottom bezel of the display and with the definitive absence of the controversial Touch Bar.
In addition, it is mentioned that notebooks will take a significant leap in terms of processor with the adoption of the successor to the M1. Also expected is the return of the SD card slot and MagSafe technology for charging, the addition of a backlit Touch ID button, and the addition of the HDMI port.
