iMac rumors: Fans may see a 21.5 inch iMac with 4K resolution because of … – Vine Report
Rumor has been going around regarding a possible 21-inch iMac with a 4K retina display from Apple. With the success of its 27-inch iMac with Retina 5K display as the only one with stunning details on its display, fans are excited by the idea of a smaller version with the same display quality.
It is almost certain that the American company will introduce a 21-inch ultra HD with 4K retina iMac next month, according to 4K news. After looking into OS X El Capitan, Apple’s latest operating system upgrade for Mac computers, it was found that this OS is built to handle 4K resolutions of 4096×2304 pixels, way beyond the capacity of other 4K PC screens at 3840×2160. Since Apple is expected to release a 21.5 inch iMac soon, it is highly likely that it will showcase the 4K technology.
Aside from this, the same news portal reported that Consomac, a French website, saw images of a beta version of El Capitan working on two 27-inch screen and one 21.5-inch device. The latter could be the upcoming anticipated release from Apple.
Even the analysts agree with the speculations. KGI Securities Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, known for his accuracy in predicting Apple product releases, said: “We believe Apple will introduce new iMac models in 3Q15, which are supposed to have major selling advantages like an upgraded processor and improved display quality. It is likely that the platform will use an LED phosphor material referred to as KSF to considerably enhance color concentration.”
In terms of price, it may come a little more than $1,099 but cheaper than its 27-inch predecessor which sold at $1,999.
No official statement has been made by Apple, but speculations indicate that it may come before September end, just in time for the company to pick up its sales growth, as indicated in ischoolguide.
