It has three USB-C ports downstream to connect to other devices and accessories, and a Thunderbolt 3 port that connects to 85W only to the new MacBook Pro and at the same time recharges it. It also includes a microphone, a camera and narrow speakers. It is already on the US Apple website for $ 1,300, but not yet available for purchase (scheduled for December).
The cheapest version of the monitor, the LG UltraFine 4K Display, has a 21.5 inch screen with a resolution of 4096 × 2304 pixels and the same number of ports as its larger brother, except that it has a 60W connection on the Thunderbolt 3.
