LG says Apple is planning to release 8K iMac later this year

iMac 5K

Apple is working on a “super-high-resolution” iMac with an astonishing 8K display, according to its manufacturing partner LG Display.

In a blog post on Monday, LG Display spoke of the future of screen technology and claimed Apple is planning a follow up to its well-received iMac Retina Display 5K all-in-one by taking things to the next level.

The company wrote (via CNET) "Apple has also announced that they will release the 'iMac 8K' with a super-high resolution display later this year."

Of course, Apple has actually announced no such thing, but if it were were planning such a move LG Display is likely to be in the know, having manufactured the 5K iMac's display.

If LG is indeed correct in its assertions (and it’s not a case of poorly fact-checked writing), then Apple is likely to be fuming. The company keeps its products a closely guarded secret and such a careless slip is unlikely to go over well.

Last year Apple wowed with its 5K iMac display, packing a resolution of 5120 x 2880. The 27-inch Retina 5K Display delivered 67 per cent more pixels than a 4K display.

The 14.7 million pixel screen offered video editors the chance to view full size 4K video while still seeing their editing tools on the same display. An 8K version of the iMac would push the envelope even further.

Had LG let it slip or is it more likely the firm’s display unit has gotten its wires crossed? Share your thoughts below.

Only if it's a 34" super-widescreen or similar. There is 0% chance this is a 27".

I am sorry but I cannot get past the poor grammar to which I have mentioned on other reviews. It is shocking to keep reading articles that are presented as if it is the reviewer is providing a talking commentary (which as bad) instead of written professionally.

If I was the editor of this on-line publication I think I would start a new recruiting strategy maybe even be concerned if I was (the editor that is) was capable of running this publication. Please proof read your articles then you would not have poor grammar, spelling, illiterate use of the English language. Extreme poor use of scripting forcing the most basic errors that shows a complete lack of understanding of what a word means and where it should be used in it's context, and how to use commas with correct emphasis of the sense of the sentence structure.

TRUSTED REVIEWS:- "The company keeps its products a closely guarded secret and such a careless slip is unlikely to go over well."

I think you could of finished with something like this:- "such a careless slip might prove to be provocative"

TRUSTED REVIEWS:- Had LG let it slip or is it more likely the firm’s display unit has gotten its wires crossed?

Or maybe:- "Have LG let this slip or did the firms display unit division have it's wires crossed!"

Back on topic.

And with that in mind I am sure we will find out from Apple's point of view in due course!

I think it should be "Have LG let this slip or did the firm's display unit division have its wires crossed?"
