An Apple Thunderbolt Display with 4K resolution is unlikely to arrive anytime soon; know why [atualizado]

When Apple officially launched the new Mac Pro at its special event in late October, it put some units in the hands-on for journalists, and to demonstrate the machine?s support for up to three 4K displays, some were connected to a Sharp monitor.

Just yesterday, our reader @iNovarro sent us the tip of this page on the Apple website about the Thunderbolt interface and, in the middle, you can see again a Mac Pro connected to a Sharp 4K monitor.

Well, today, coincidentally, the Macworld has discovered that Apple is now marketing this very same Sharp monitor in its European online stores, such as the UK.

Sharp 32

Sharp's PN-K321 monitor is 32 inches, uses LED technology and has an Ultra HD (4K) resolution of 3840 × 2160 pixels. He is leaving for £ 3,500, the equivalent of more than R $ 13,000.

Although rumors about a future Thunderbolt Display with 4K resolution have recently reheated, the fact that Apple is using and now selling this Sharp monitor indicates that this new model of it should not be released anytime soon.

That a new Apple monitor with 4K resolution will arrive someday, there is no doubt unless it gives up on making its own monitors. But, by the way, the new Mac Pro hits the market this month without the possibility of being purchased together with a Thunderbolt Display of the latest generation

In view of the media repercussions, the Sharp monitor is no longer sold in European Apple Online Stores but I bet it will be back with the new Macs Pro.
