Apple to release iMac 8K late this year

Apple will release an iMac 8K later this year, according to a press release from display partner LG.

This seems like an unfortunate accident from LG’s press department who are promoting their latest 8K offerings today. Apple likes to keep their new products top secret and has sued “leakers” in the past.

The release reads:

The World is Turning to 8K

It is not difficult to hear the call for bigger and clearer images from everywhere around the world. When the BBC took on the broadcasting of the 2012 Olympics, they said, ‘Since 8K resolution is the highest resolution that the human eye is capable of seeing, it will put an end to the resolution discussion,’ predicting that ‘ultimately, 8K images will overtake the market.’

It has become clear that Japan is planning to launch an 8K SHV test broadcast and then promptly restructure the UHD service. Apple has also announced that they will release the ‘iMac 8K’ with a super-high resolution display later this year. Korea is also preparing to offer an 8K service demonstration at the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympics. LG Display displayed a new beacon of the 8K era by revealing their 98-inch 8K Color Prime Ultra HDTV at CES 2015.
