Some time ago, two monitors – 4K LG UltraFine and LG UltraFine 5K Display – disappeared from the Apple Online Store range, after which the Apple store was left without displays. Many saw this as a hint of the imminent release of a brand-new branded monitor. However, in reality it turned out not quite so.
Today, LG UltraFine 4K Display is available again on the virtual shelves of the Apple Onlines Store. Despite the old name, the novelty has a number of differences. And not all of them can be called positive.
The updated LG UltraFine 4K Display has a larger diagonal (23.7 vs. 21.5 inches), but the display resolution has decreased from 4096 x 2304 to 3840 x 2160 pixels. The monitor is also equipped with two new Thunderbolt 3 ports and three USB-C connectors. The price of the display has not changed. The new LG UltraFine 4K Display costs $700.
It is worth noting that after all the monitors disappeared from the Apple Online Store, many hoped for the announcement of a brand new branded display from Apple. According to rumors, the novelty was to have a resolution of 6K and a diagonal of more than 31 inches. Sources claimed that the announcement of the branded monitor will take place within the framework of WWDC 2019. But now many people doubt it.
