"With up to 14.7 million pixels, 1 billion colours, 500 nits of brightness, P3 wide colour gamut and an incredible viewing angle, iMac's Retina display deliver an immersive front-of-screen experience. All these pixels result in text that looks like a printed page, sharper photos with more detail, and the ability to edit 4K video at full resolution," Apple said in a statement.

The 21.5-inch display iMac model comes with 8th-generation quad-core, and for the first time 6-core processors, delivering up to 60-percent faster performance. On the other, the bigger sibling packs powerful Intel chipset with up to 9th-generation 6-core and 8-core processors, delivering up to 2.4 times the faster performance.

Apple has incorporated Radeon Pro Vega graphics in the 21.5-inch iMac, delivering up to 80-percent faster graphics performance. The 27-inch iMac with Radeon Pro Vega now delivers up to 50-percent faster graphics performance, ideal for professional with graphics-intensive workloads, such as developing 3D content, editing videos with complex effects or designing high-resolution games.

Both the iMac variants are powered by Apple's latest macOS Mojave, which also comes with popular Dark Mode, which transforms the desktop with a visually appealing interface that puts the focus on user content, Stacks organizes messy desktops by automatically stacking files into neat groups. It also supports FaceTime supports group calling.
