27-inch iMac 2016 with Intel Kaby Lake Processor Leaked?
While many are waiting for the iMac 2016 to come around, a listing pops up with a surprising revelation: an Intel Kaby Lake-powered 27-inch all-in-one (AIO) desktop may be making its way to the U.S. market soon.
A 27-inch iMac 2016 popped up briefly on Best Buy as a new product, Business Insider reported. While it is certainly interesting on its own, what is more shocking is that its listing indicated that it is coming with "7th Gen Intel Core i7 processor." For those unaware, this refers to the Kaby Lake processor that has not been released yet.
iMac 2016 Specs
Other details of the iMac 2016 revealed by the Best Buy listing include a 27-inch Retina 5K display, 32GB of RAM and a 2TB Fusion Drive, which are borrowed from the previous iteration of Apple's AIO desktop.
It could also include an AMD Radeon R9 M380 GPU with 2GB of VRAM, as per ValueWalk.
It should be noted, however, that the listing could simply be a mistake. On the other hand, it could also be an advertising stint that may be a signal of the computer coming soon.
iMac 2016 Release Date
Apple has not officially announced a release date for the iMac 2016, but they never do anyway. According to rumors, it is coming in October alongside the new MacBook Pro 2016 complete with an OLED touch bar, a new keyboard mechanism and more.
A source cited by Bloomberg in a previous report also mentioned that Apple is planning to launch new Macs this month, but plans can still change.
There are some doubts over the authenticity of this leak, but with recent reports suggesting that new Macs are coming soon, it may just be another marketing stint by Apple to garner attention prior to a worldwide launch.
As of now, fans can only hope that the iMac 2016 October launch rumor is true.
