(Pocket-lint) - Apple's much-rumoured 16-inch MacBook Pro could debut in a matter of days.

The laptop, which has been expected for months, will reportedly be available by the end of October, which means it would likely be announced in the next week or so. This is all according to anonymous supply chain sources who spoke to DigiTimes, a publication with a decent track record when it comes to spoiling Apple news. The report details how one Taiwanese manufacturer has even begun "volume shipments" of the new laptop.

This all-new MacBook Pro would be the largest in Apple's existing lineup. It's thought to feature a scissor keyboard, thin bezels, and Intel's latest processors (Coffee Lake Refresh, or maybe even Ice Lake processor, which have yet to be announced for MacBook Pro). It should have the same footprint as Apple's current 15-inch model, despite packing a larger, 3,072 x 1,920-pixel display.

There's been talk about Apple possibly holding a second event this autumn; perhaps it'll be in October, and we'll see the laptop unveiled then?
