Leaked Photos of New MacBook Pro With OLED Touch Panel?

Spy photos that reveal a new MacBook Pro with an OLED touch panel have surfaced online. The photos were provided to CultofMac by an anonymous source who claims to work for one of Apple’s manufacturing partners in China. The touch panel sits above the keyboard, replacing the function keys. It could presumably be customized.

It looks like the touchpad might have a lip that slips into that smaller hole on the left side of the cutout, keeping it in place. The hole on the right side appears to contain three pins, which likely connects the touchpad to the logic board.

According to the photos, the MacBook Pro appears to have two USB-C ports on the left and two on the right. There also appears to be a headphone jack.

The images corroborate a report from KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo last week. Kuo said Apple is working on a major update to the MacBook Pro which will bring a new OLED display touch bar above the keyboard, USB-C/Thunderbolt 3, and Touch ID.

We'd definitely like to see the new notebook unveiled at WWDC but unfortunately the release date is currently being pegged at sometime in 4Q16.

This reminds me of the 2nd gen Thinkpad X1 Carbon disaster. There's no way I'll get another laptop without physical function keys.

I wonder about the arrow keys placement on that new keyboard. The left and right arrow keys seem too big in comparison to the up and down keys, if they were to remain like the existing design.

Probably just a prototype.

I'd love to be a designer at Apple, minimalist design with little design changes year to year and I get paid a decent paycheck, where do I sign up?

I like the way you think. Judging something that isn't released only to make a half baked excuse. Where do you get your inspiration dear?
