Apple's upcoming MacBook Pros could feature upgraded 1080p cameras, 16GB of RAM and 512GB of storage on the base models, and smaller bezels all around, according to a leaker.

The rumors come from iOS developer and leaker @dylandkt, who made the predictions shortly after Apple officially announced its Oct. 18 "Unleashed" event.

The leaker says that both the 14-inch MacBook Pro and 16-inch MacBook Pro will feature a mini-LED display, echoing rumors and reports that have surfaced in 2021. Earlier on Tuesday, a display analyst said that mini LED is "100% confirmed" on the new models.

Additionally, @dylandkt also reiterated claims that both the 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro model would have the same M1X chipset with equivalent speeds across the lineup. Likely because of that, the leaker says that pricing will be similar on both devices.

The leaker also maintained past claims from other sources, including the forecast that both models will come equipped with a higher-quality 1080p camera. Dylan also claimed that the devices will have smaller bezels and no bottom "MacBook Pro" text and could ship with a new charging brick.

Both models are largely expected to make their debut at Apple's "Unleashed" event, scheduled for 10 a.m. Pacific (1 p.m. Eastern) on Monday, Oct. 18. Supply chain sources indicate that production began ramping up in August.
