Here an interesting 9to5Mac story concerning a possible new Apple external display.
I can't even begin to imagine what Apple would charge for such a thing, especially at that size.

Are there other mini-LED screens already on the market?

I mean, that's nice and all... but I wish Apple would spend more time trying to cater to their more mainstream audience and less time trying to push the engineering envelope just to prove they can...

My sig is 1 pixel too big.

if it’s anything like the 32UL950, Apple should price it competitively, e.g., $1299. It’ll sell well.

No. There are others working on it so Apple may not be first, but there are none out yet.
The new Mac Pro has up to 30 MB of cache inside the processor itself. That's more than the HD in my first Mac. Somehow I'm still running out of space.

Because Apple is notorious for pricing things competitively.
I have plenty of more important things to do, if only I could bring myself to do them....

Apple wouldn't sell a 31" 6k display for less than $2999.

Agree. Original Cinema Display cost $3299.
The new Mac Pro has up to 30 MB of cache inside the processor itself. That's more than the HD in my first Mac. Somehow I'm still running out of space.

From what I see on Mactracker, all LED-model monitors that Apple released this past decade cost less than $1000.

Also, with the current base 5K iMac cost at $1799 (P3, 625 nits), it bewilders me to think that the expected price for a 6K monitor would exceed even an iMac's cost.

A price bump from $999 to $1299 for newer (and superior) technology corresponds to a percent increase similar to that of some of Apple's other recent offerings (e.g., MacBook Air, Mac Mini).
