Oh I see... but as far as I know the Dell is out of stock (they don't build it anymore maybe?) and the HP/Philips do not support DCI-P3 so that's why I was looking into the Ultrafine 5k
Anyway I guess I'll wait for new monitors, and also does macOS support DP 1.4?
To be honest DCI-P3 gamut is not so interesting to me, especially because iMac has not HW LUT table so it cannot be profiled correctly. You will have sRGB and DCI-P3, lacking AdobeRGB and, more importantly, lacking any chance to have it correctly profiled. LG Ultrafine 5K is in the same league. Both are not professional monitors, despite their prices.
Monitors market is rapidly changing and more than 5K resolution what is appealing is HDR, Rec. 2020, 10bit wide gamut out of 12-14-16bits LUT tables. All this stuff is already available in 4K resolution but you won't find anything in 5K. At that point 4K (or even 5K scaled out of 4K monitor!) is more interesting than 5K by itself.
DP 1.4 support up to 8K/60hz on a single stream/cable but I guess it's way much easier to make a connector port than a panel. It's much easier assembling two 2K panels to have a 5K MST than building a new 5K panel SST.
