LG has introduced a 27-inch 5K UltraFine display which complements the company’s 24-inch 4K UltraFine display, both of which are designed for use with Apple products.

The new 5K widescreen unit delivers “precise detail and color” aimed at creative designers, photographers and videographers, with its P3 color space and 500-nit brightness, and no calibration required. 218 PPI results in a 14.7 million pixel screen count, and there is a built-in camera, microphone and stereo speakers for multimedia applications.


Both UltraFine displays should be connected to a Mac or iPad Pro and include the ability to “enhance productivity”, while the UF 5K has several connectivity options, such as Thunderbolt 3 and USB Type-C. Video, audio and data can be transferred via a single cable to a Mac workstation, and 94 watts of power in the unit means USB-C devices can be charged.

The UltraFine 4K at 23.7 inches, meanwhile,  is 10% larger than the previous version, and also includes P3 color gamut and 500-nit brightness. Two monitors can be daisy-chained using Thunderbolt 3 ports on a Mac.

The retail price for the UltraFine 5K is $1,299.99, and is available from apple.com and Apple Stores.
