On May 23rd, Google and LG Display jointly launched a new OLED display for VR/AR devices at Display Week 2018 in Los Angeles. The screen size is about 4.3 inches, resolution reached 3840 × 4800, pixel density peaked at 1443 ppi, and it has a 120Hz refresh rate. So far, this is the highest resolution OLED display in the industry.
In contrast, HTC Vive’s monocular effective resolution is 1200×1080, binocular combined resolution is 2160×1200, and the refresh rate is 90Hz. All in all, Google and LG Display introduced this OLED display and it is far more advanced than the HTC Vive.
It is worth mentioning that when this display is used with mobile devices and powered by a mobile chipset, the refresh rate may be reduced to 75Hz. It is not yet clear when this display will enter the market. If its experience is as tempting as claimed, then this is definitely worth the wait.
