Apple will reportedly introduce a 5K standalone monitor soon

30 Aug 2016 | Rasmus Larsen |

Apple recently discontinued its only PC monitor but will soon return to the monitor segment, says Bloomberg. The manufacturer is planning to launch a new standalone monitor with 5K resolution.

A 5K Thunderbolt monitor

Apple has already employed ultra-high 5K resolution (5120x2880 pixels) in its iMac. The first generation of the 5K iMac made use of 5K resolution alone while the second generation added full support for DCI-P3 color gamut used in cinema.

It is not clear if the new 5K standalone monitor from Apple will support DCI-P3 color gamut, too. However, Mark Gurman from Bloomberg believes that Apple will source panels from LG. The report did not detail how the monitor will be connected to an iMac either but earlier reports have claimed that the 5K monitor will feature a built-in graphics card.

Mark Gurman also says that Apple will soon launch new products in the iMac, Macbook Air and Macbook Pro ranges. Some of these Macs will be launched in October, he claims.

Apple event on September 7

In related news, Apple has sent out official invitations for its next event. It will take place on September 7 at 10:00 am San Francisco time.

The invitation depicts an Apple logo made from colorful bokeh spheres, the special out-of-focus look that you can create with certain types of cameras. It is expected that Apple will launch new iPhones and a new version of the Apple Watch at the event. The Mac products are not expected to make a debut here. There are no signs pointing to new Apple TV hardware yet.

Apple has yet to comment on whether the event will be live-streamed but we suspect that it will.
