Apple, LG Unveil UltraFine 4K, 5K Displays for New MacBook Pro

Sorry folks no Apple Cinema Display this year...

Apple has announced all new MacBook Pros recently. However amidst all this happening one announcement made by Apple has gone unnoticed. Apple has announced that it is partnering with LG to produce 4K and 5K displays respectively.

These will be specifically designed so that they work perfectly with newly announced notebooks. The two monitors are dubbed as LG Ultrafine displays. They will work perfectly with the MacBook Pro but will not come in cheap. Let’s start with the 21.5-inch 4K screen.

This display has a resolution of 4096x2304 and P3 wide color gamut. You can certainly get your hands on this but you will have to hand in $699 in order to do so. The screen is able to connect with the existing or new MacBook Pro via a single USB-C or thunderbolt 3 cable.

This is actually good given MacBook only has one port. However the screen itself does have many ports which make adding accessories easier. Coming to the 27-inch 5K LG Ultrafine Display, this monitor features a 5K resolution of 5120x2880 and a P3 wide color gamut.

However the potential buyers will have to pay a handsome amount of $1299.99. That is quite much money for a monitor now matter how gorgeous it looks. Nevertheless, those who are not put off by the price will have to wait anyway.

This is because it is marked ‘unavailable’ on Apples official website. The company however has said that it expects the display to go on sale in December. Meanwhile, the 21.5 inch 4K variant is available with a 5-6 lead time.
