Apple is now selling a new generation LG UltraFine 4K Display for the same $699 price as the previous generation. The product is now listed at the Apple Online Store with shipping from tomorrow.
The new model is a mixed bag. It features a larger 23.7-inch screen but the resolution is actually lower than the previous 21-inch incarnation. This means the effective pixels-per-inch is also lower.

The new display was already quietly on sale at some Apple Stores as discovered yesterday. Now, everything is official.
The old 4K display only had one Thunderbolt 3 port, the input port which provided the content to display. The new generation LG UltraFine features two Thunderbolt 3 ports, one for input and one to daisy-chain additional Thunderbolt 3 accessories. This means you could connect a Thunderbolt 3 external hard-drive array through the display, all terminating in a single cable to your MacBook Pro.
