Apple MacBook Pro 14 and MacBook Pro 16 are to arrive early next month, as we reported earlier and already we’re listening to rumours regarding the presence of the new M1X chip. However, a prototype of the upcoming MacBook Pro has leaked online, providing us with some astonishing details.
Someone paired his iPhone with a prototype of a new MacBook Pro, which kind of made some information go online ahead of the launch. As in the screenshot, one can see that it is the new MacBook Pro with M1X, and the name DVT-X88102C refers to nothing but Design Validation Testing (DVT), a prototyping stage before Production Validation Testing (PVT). The screenshot seems to be legit because there are con-ordinates to Apple Park.
Apparently the new MacBook Pro that will be released soon will be equipped with the M1X chip, this is demonstrated by this image of a DVT unit tested in Cupertino #Apple #AppleInternal #MacBookProM1X pic.twitter.com/jwRVXP4ezq

The screenshot confirms the presence of the new M1X chip that Apple has not separately announced yet, and there is the mention of 512GB storage and 16GB RAM. Apart from these, the screenshot has nothing more to tell the Apple fans.

However, it is believed that the new MacBook Pro 14 and 16 will come with up to 32GB of RAM and 2TB storage. The new lineup of MacBook Pros may come with a new I/O, including HDMI and an SD card reader. They should still retain the MagSafe charging port. However, they may now come with a new flat design.
Apple kept delaying the M1X announcement and subsequently the new MacBook lineup, and now it looks like the company will announce it the day they launch the new MacBook Pro lineup. The new M1X chip may be a 10-core CPU with eight high-performance cores and two energy-efficient cores. In terms of GPU, there could be two options, and the company may launch the new Mac Mini, powered by the new M1X chip.

A few model numbers have come out from the rumour mill, and if we believe them, Apple is working on MacBook Pros with the model numbers J314 and J316. There are references to two other models J374 and J375, which could be the new Mac Minis, powered by M1X.
