'Apple Studio Display' With 7K Resolution Reportedly in Development

Apple is working on a new "Apple Studio Display" with a 7K resolution, according to 9to5Mac's Filipe Espósito, who cites sources familiar with the matter. The display is also expected to feature a dedicated Apple silicon chip.

Pro Display XDR Yella
The report claims it is unclear whether the display will be a replacement for the Pro Display XDR or a new addition to Apple's standalone display lineup. Additional details are still unknown, including the size of the display and a release timeframe.

Bloomberg's Mark Gurman was first to report that Apple was working on at least one new external display, but he said that display would have a lower price with reduced brightness and contrast ratio. By the sounds of it, the new 7K model would be slotted above the Pro Display XDR in the lineup, so it is possible that Apple plans to offer displays at several price points as it did with its Cinema Display lineup in the 2000s.

Apple released the Pro Display XDR in December 2019 for $4,999, with an optional $999 stand. The 32-inch display features a 6K resolution with peak brightness of 1,600 nits for HDR content, 10-bit depth for 1.073 billion colors, and a 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio.

Please also make displays for people who are not absurdly rich, Apple. Remember you used to do that?

Folks who have no need for it already crying about the 6k display. This'll make them weep even more and get on their soap box about how despite having no need for one they should be able to afford one. "The Bugatti should be the same price as the Civic!"
Actually, wise one, people aren't complaining that the 6K monitor should be priced low. People are merely saying that they want an Apple monitor that normal people can afford. But thanks for posting your wisdom.

7k? Why? 8k would make so much more sense…
And clearly a niche product at a super high price…
Need something affordable…

Still holding out hope for another ~$999 display in the 27-30" range. Honestly the existing LG 5K monitor with Apple industrial design team doing the enclosure would be great.
