G7 ThinQ by LG, a high-profile maker of quality Android phones, has a notch of its own. Like literally every iPhone X rip-off to date, LG’s notch isn’t doing nearly as much as Apple’s because it’s a purely cosmetic implementation that’s simply meant to mimic the prestige of Apple’s OLED device.
LG debuted three new Thunderbolt 3 UltraFine monitors last week at CES and we got to go hands-on and check them out. The three models include an ultra-wide 21:9 aspect ratio monitor, 4K monitors capable of being daisy chained, and a 5K monitor.
Here’s another proof Apple should have thought twice before exiting the standalone display business—the company was forced to suspend sales of LG’s new 5K monitor that launched last fall along with the new MacBook Pro following a flurry of complaints from users, ranging from screen flickering to interference with nearby routers to problems with Thunderbolt, Business Insider reported Monday morning.
Apple Stores have stopped carrying the $974 LG UltraFine 5K Display for now. It continues to be available through Apple.com, with a shipping time of 5-6 weeks and no options for pickup in Apple Stores. Maybe now would be the perfect time to revive the phased-out Apple Thunderbolt Display?
