Apple will introduce a new 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display at its WWDC, which takes place from 10 to 14 June.
Analyst Mingchi Kuo of KGI Securities believes that the new MacBook Pro and MacBook Air will become even thinner and will allow the user to work longer with the computer on a single charge.
“We expect the new MacBook, featuring an upgrade to Intel’s (US) Haswell processor, will be in the spotlight for Apple at the upcoming WWDC from June 10. Along with the new processor, we expect the following modifications to each product line:
Retina MacBook Pro to be slimmer slightly, along with a camera upgrade. We expect the 13″ Retina MacBook Pro will have a slightly slimmer form factor for increasing its portability. Also, we think the camera spec will be upgraded from HD to full HD. This will improve Facetime and video conference quality in the high resolution Retina display.”
According to Intel, its Haswell processor can increase a laptop’s performance by 50 % longer than the previous generation processors.
Kuo also predicts that the MacBook Air will come with the same dual built-in microphone design that is featured on the MacBook Pro with Retina Display.
