Samsung has developed a new ultra-high resolution display. It is designed for virtual reality headsets and contains about 3.5 times more pixels than the screens used in headsets Oculus Rift and HTC Vive.
The development of Samsung new VR Headsets was demonstrated at the event, SID Display Week 2017 in late May, but information about it appeared only now. Samsung new VR Headsets display was characterized by a 3.5 inch diagonal and a resolution 2024 x 2200 pixels. These parameters correspond to the density of 854 pixels per inch, but Samsung claims 858 PPI.
The brightness of the panel is 100 cd / m2, update frequency – 90 Hz, which should be enough to get rid of the unpleasant sensations (dizziness, nausea) which arise after some people use of modern headsets VR.
It is unclear whether Samsung will use the display in their headsets or plans to ship it to other manufacturers. Now Samsung provides displays for Oculus, and HTC – in both devices is established by two separate screen (for each eye) 1200 x 1080 resolution pixels.
