LG Accidently Leaks Apple iMac 8K Is Coming Later This Year
LG accidently revealed in blog post that Apple is planning to release 8K iMac later this year. This news comes as a surprise as the leak came from a different company rather than Apple. LG is one of Apple's biggest display partner and has already demonstrated 8K monitors at CES in Las Vegas, and notes that the panel boasts 16 times the number of pixels as a standard Full HD screen.
Since 8K is the maximum resolution, human eye can see and Apple jumping on the 8k bandwagon is possible considering it already have 5K iMac. However, what makes anyone question the validity of this leak by LG is LG's own statement.
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.

Note that Apple never officially announced the existence of 8K iMac like LG stated. May be this is mistake from LG side, or LG slipped and revealed something. Nevertheless, LG is one of Apple's biggest display partner and may know thing or two about upcoming Apple products.
Last year, Apple revealed a stunning 5K iMac (pictured above) that surpassed the pixel density of many display competitors, and Apple could have a similar trick up in the near future. Speaking of display resolution, the next Apple TV to be announced this summer is rumored not to support 4K video streaming.
