After seeing competition from Google’s Daydream announcement and HTC Vive, Samsung decided to step up their Virtual Reality game and unveiled a 5.5 inch 4K panel at the display week in San Francisco.
This will be a massive game changer as the pixel density immensely affects the VR experience of consumers. This 4K panel has a PPI of 806, same as that of the 4K Sony xperia z5 premium. Brilliant indeed. Other than that it also has 97% color gamut accuracy.
Samsung specifically named the panel “High resolution for VR” and its worth questioning whats special about the VR display other than the high resolution.
So where will we see this display?
Nothing has been confirmed as of yet, but considering Samsung uses 5.7 inch displays (and it will probably go up this year) in the Note series, it’s safe to say that we won’t be seeing it in the Note 6. It will more likely be in the 5.5 inch S8 edge.
Another possibility is that Samsung could make a VR Headset with a built in screen (that won’t need a smartphone), like the Oculus rift. Its quite possible as the Gear VR was also made by Oculus. But those are just our thoughts. Where do you think this display will be used? Let us know in the comments below!
