New MacBook Pro 2016 with surprising specs upgrade

As we get closer to the start of WWDC 2016, we have some new MacBook Pro rumors to bring you now. Specifically, reports that Apple may be planning to bring the MacBook Pro 2016 model to the table with some surprising spec upgrades.

While some may be expecting just a spec refresh, analysts over at KGI Securities believe that Apple is planning something big. This could include making the next MacBook Pro significantly lighter than previous models by incorporating USB-C and potentially removing the HDMI port altogether.

On top of this, we are hearing that the next MacBook Pro could come with Touch ID support for easy password input and interestingly, a brand new OLED display touch bar that will replace the current button layout above the keyboard.

USB-C could also be used to integrate the Thunderbolt ports and convert the HDMI port to mini-HDMI port, helping to make a new model lighter but still be available in 13-inch and 15-inch models.

It also sounds very exciting, but will Apple be ready for a WWDC 2016 announcement or will we have to wait until later on in the year? The latter seems to be the safe bet right now.

What are your thoughts on these new potential specs for the MacBook Pro 2016 model – would you upgrade in a heartbeat with the likes of Touch ID, USB-C and OLED display on board?
