Apple to launch new 21.5 inch iMac with 4K display next week: Rumor

4K iMac

While #Apple has already released the 5K resolution 27 inch iMac, a new report talks about the company launching a 21.5 inch iMac with a 4K display. It is said that this device will be launched as soon as next week, although we’re yet to get official confirmation from Apple.

This 21.5 inch 4K iMac would have a pixel density identical to the 5K 27 inch iMac at 218 pixels per inch (ppi). The release of this new iMac makes sense considering what we’ve heard in leaks and rumors over the past few months. A report from early September suggested that the company was looking to release this 21.5 inch iMac sometime in October.

Apple hasn’t scheduled an event for anytime next week, so it’s likely that even if the new iMac is released, it will be a low key affair. These pixel dense iMacs are targeted at productivity and the multimedia loving public and is a perfect fit with the 27 inch 5K model in Apple’s Mac roster.

Pricing will obviously be a key factor as is always the case with iMacs. What do you make of this new revelation?
