Reports are coming in that Google and LG are teaming up to work on and show off a brand new VR headset which could boast some pretty impressing specs. It will have an 18-megapixel 4.3-inch OLED display with 1443 PPI. The refresh rate will 120Hz, and no number has been provided on the panel’s resolution.
Speculations are that the resolution could be within the 5500 x 3000 range.
This obviously makes it much better than HTC Vive Pro or the Oculus Rift. One of the complaints that some people have current VR headset is the display resolution. With a low resolution, you are more likely to see the pixels create jagged edges, which ends up ruining the immersive experience and can cause headaches to some people. With a higher display panel, all of this can be solved.
Currently, the only relatively successful VR headset to hit the market is the PlayStation VR. It gained its popularity due to the software support it has and will continue to have.
However, with that all being said, one thing that could set the device back from its competitors is the price. With specs like these, it only makes sense that it might cost more than other headsets out there, but if Google can manage to keep the prices relatively close to its competitors, albeit a little higher, it might be able to reach out a big buyer space then.
The device is supposed to be displayed during the Display Week 2018 trade show in late May
