World’s First 5K Monitor with Thunderbolt 3
LG announced the UltraFine 27-inch 5K and UltraFine 21.5-inch 4K monitors designed to complement the powerful new 2016 Apple MacBook and MacBook Pro laptops. With seamless macOS integration, you can control volume and brightness on your 5K display without the need for physical buttons, and charge your MacBook at the same time with only one connection cable.
As the world’s first 5K display with Thunderbolt 3, the LG UltraFine 5K display has the capability to receive and transfer 5K video, audio and data from the new MacBook Pro while simultaneously charging it through a single Thunderbolt 3 cable. Resolution clocks in at 5120 x 2880 at 218 pixels per inch (ppi). LG claims its color reproduction capabilities allow it to cover 99 percent of the P3 color space. Advanced IPS display technology minimizes color shift and color loss from any viewing angle.
The LG UltraFine 5K display features three downstream USB Type-C ports for additional connectivity and power with compatible accessories. Seamless macOS integration enables brightness and volume control like built-in display without the need for physical buttons on the display.
The front-facing camera and microphone works with FaceTime and high fidelity integrated speakers enhanced by LG’s Rich Bass feature completes the multimedia experience while a height and tilt-adjustable stand maximizes user comfort.
The 21.5-Inch LG UltraFine 4K (4096 x 2304) Monitor offers a pixel density of 219 ppi. It also covers 99 percent of the P3 spectrum, boasting vibrant brightness levels and an IPS panel capable of providing more uniform color expression. Featuring USB Type-C connectivity for video, data and power over a single cable and macOS integration for display control, the LG UltraFine 4K display offers three downstream USB Type-C slots, a high-quality Rich Bass Speaker and an adjustable stand for enhanced ergonomics.
