The American Apple Store Online started selling the new display today 27 inch LG UltraFine 5K, which joins the 23.7-inch 4K model launched at Ma's store last May.
LG's new display offers the same 5120 × 2880 pixel resolution as Ma's previously sold UltraFine monitor, which was taken from the Apple Store Online next to the old 4K monitor.
The UltraFine 5K has 14.7 million pixels, 500 nits brightness and support wide color gamut (P3). Like the 23.7 ″ model, the larger display connects to the Mac via a Thunderbolt 3 or USB-C cable, meaning that it is also compatible with iPad Pro!
The model offers three other ports, also USB-C, at speeds up to 5Gbps, and when used with a MacBook (Pro / Air), charging through the Thunderbolt 3 cable can deliver up to 94W of power. What's more, the monitor has built-in narrow speakers, a built-in camera and a microphone, plus an adjustable height / tilt stand.
The new LG UltraFine 5K display is available from the US Apple Store Online for $ 1,300, while the smaller model sells for $ 700. It is not yet known if the new models will be available on the Brazilian Apple Store Online, which also stopped selling the previous models.

An Apple document indicates that LG UltraFine 5K display support for the iPad Pro is only available at a lower resolution of 3840 × 2160 pixels, as pointed out by 9to5Mac.

Apparently, the details of the new generation UltraFine 5K display have greatly disappointed users.
Besides not transmitting the content of iPads Pro at full resolution, the new monitor from LG also does not reach its full capacity when two of them are connected to a MacBook Pro which was possible with the previous version.
In the document, Apple describes that by connecting a MacBook Pro to two UltraFine 5K displays, they will display the content at 4K resolution (4096 × 2304 pixels); In the previous model, the company claimed that two displays supported a MacBook Pro at its maximum resolutions from the Thunderbolt 3 port.
This also means that it will be possible to achieve higher pixel density with an XDR Pro Display (with Retina 6K resolution) than with two LG UltraFine 5K displays, which is great for Apple's prosperous display advertising, of course.

If you, like me, found it odd that a display like the LG UltraFine 5K would simply “stop” supporting something that already existed, because that was an Apple documentation error that was fixed by the company on its support page.
According to Ma, the new monitor actually supports its maximum resolution when two of them are connected to a MacBook Pro via the Thunderbolt 3 input.
Hopefully, from now on, there is no more misunderstanding about the specifications of the new display, as surely recent news must have discouraged some users.
