LG has just announced a new version for its display specially designed for use in conjunction with Apple products, the UltraFine 5K.
The new model arrives after the release of the updated version of UltraFine 4K, which hit the market at the end of May.
Featuring a 5K panel (5120 x 3880), the model features broad support for the P3 color range, 500 nits brightness and up to 94W USB-C / Thunderbolt 3 (three-port) connectivity that lets you charge your MacBook, MacBook Pro or iPad while mirroring the 14.7 million pixel screen image.
Other interesting details are the integrated webcam and stereo speakers, which are differentials that can be enjoyed by many users looking for a monitor with more extra features.
Recalling that the original UltraFine 5K had to go through an official recall on its 27 ”version, seeing that it was experiencing incompatibility issues with Wi-Fi routers.
The current model has a height of 46.4 cm, a width of 62.6 cm and a weight of 8.5 kg and is already being offered on the official website of Apple in Europe for 1399 euros.
Apparently, despite bringing three USB-C ports, LG’s expensive new monitor has some limitations that interested users need to know.
For MacBook Pro owners, for example, the model is not able to project more than one screen at full panel resolution, something that was possible in the previous generation.
In the specific documentation, Apple describes that when connecting a MacBook Pro to two UltraFine 5K displays, they will display content at 4K resolution (4096 × 2304 pixels); meanwhile, in the previous model, it was possible to do so with the maximum resolutions (5K).
