    Interesting. Although I wonder if something around the port got lost in translation... it may be just a Mini DisplayPort connector (which happens to be the same and connect to a TB2 port).

    BTW, Apple sources a lot of panels from LG. I wonder if Apple will release a display based on this same panel (either before, simultaneously, or after).

    The aspect ratio is a little crazy (if you click through to the original story), so I don't think Apple would use this panel specifically.

    The Dell story the other day was interesting though. I'd hope Apple would come in at a similar price point to Dell.

    Although I wonder if the wider aspect ratio might appeal more to Apple professionals who are working on 4K production material.

    No it isn't. It's the 4K resolution for film. 3840 × 2160 is there so that consumers can play 1080p content on "4K" TVs without distortion. There are a monitors from Eizo, Sony and Panasonic with 4096x2160 resolution and there will be many more now LG are going that route.

    It is a farce.

    4K Ultra high definition television 3840 × 2160(16:9)
    4K Ultra high definition 4096 x 2560 (16:10)
    Digital Cinema Initiatives 4K (native resolution) 4096 × 2160 (256:135)
