Apple’s new MacBook Pro features… a display notch!

Unfortunately, the new version of the laptop doesn't feature Face ID

Apple has unveiled its highly anticipated new MacBook Pro with an HDMI port, an SD card reader, MagSafe compatibility and more, at its ‘Unleashed’ event on October 18th.

However, what’s noteworthy is that the new MacBook now features an upgraded 1080p camera with a centred display notch. Yep, you read that right — just like its iPhone, the new MacBook Pro features a notch.

With 24 percent thinner bezels on the sides and a 60 percent thinner top bezel that wraps around the camera notch, the 16-inch MacBook now covers 16.2-inches of display real estate, whereas the 14-inch model cover 14.2-inches of display space.

Additionally, the mini-LED Liquid Retina XDR display features ProMotion with refresh rates up to 120Hz with up to 1 billion colours.

The upgraded camera features computational video for Machine Learning (ML) based noise reduction, ML-based Face detection, local tone mapping, auto white balance, auto exposure and Smart HDR.

During the event, Apple also revealed its new MacBook Pro and 3rd-gen AirPods.
