Apple has been working on its next-generation MacBook Pro devices for some time, and the company is anticipated to unveil the new laptops later this month, powered by Apple Silicon’s undisclosed M1X chipset.
A prototype of the forthcoming Apple MacBook Pro has leaked online, confirming the MacBook Pro model with serial number DVT-X88102C, where DVT stands for Design Validation Testing (DVT), a prototyping step prior to Production Validation Testing.
It was also disclosed that the gadget has 32GB of RAM, with the firm promising up to 2TB of storage. The design of the next laptops is also likely to be updated.
Apple’s new M1X chipset, as well as two new MacBook Pro models, were supposed to be released in the last several months, but were repeatedly delayed due to production difficulties, and are now likely to be released in the next weeks.

Apple’s next MacBook Pro models are likely to include an all-new design and two display options: 14-inch and 16-inch Mini-LED displays. They’ll have a flat-edged design, a MagSafe charging port, and a few extra connections, including a USB port and more HDMI and an SD-card slot reader.
The M1X chipset may have a 10-core CPU with eight high-performance cores and two energy-efficient cores, as well as 16 or 32-core GPU choices and up to 64GB RAM support.
According to sources, Ruiyi Optoelectronics will be the sole provider of new Mini-LED panels, while Quanta Computer will be in charge of the final assembly of the next MacBook devices.
Aside from the MacBook, Apple has a couple more Mac products in the works. It was previously anticipated that the Cupertino-based tech giant will release a new high-end Mac Mini soon after the MacBook Pro, followed by a new iMac and Mac Pro next year.
