The laptop details were leaked few days back when a Twitter user named @_rogame discovered it in 3D Mark benchmarks. As per the benchmark results, the 13-inch MacBook Pro may feature 10th-generation Core i7-10689G7 processor clocked at 2.3GHz (base) and 4.1GHz (boost) along with 32GB RAM and 4TB SSD.

It is being said that since Apple will be switching from Intel Whiskey Lake-U processors to Ice Lake-U, it will be a significant performance boost. Reports assume the device to cost over $3000, which roughly translates to ₹2.2 Lacs. For those unaware, the current model of 13-inch MacBook Pro in India is priced at ₹1,19,900 for the base variant.
We assume the device to have a better battery life with slight upgrades in the display and audio sections. There is no word on the company's 14-inch MacBook Pro's refreshed model though.
Talking about launches, if Prosser's information is true, this will be Apple's second laptop launch in a month after the refreshed 13-inch MacBook Air. The device was unveiled last month at ₹92,990 in India. Apple also updated its Mac Mini with more storage capacity. The 256GB is now available for ₹74,900 while the 512GB model is priced at ₹105,900.
