Samsung has bounced back in the display arena once again with a massive improvement in VR headset. The Korean company unveiled an ultra-high resolution display for VR headsets.

This headset will have more than thrice the pixel count that of Oculus Rift and HTC VIve.

The new display from Samsung is expected to be used in VR headsets. It has 2024*2200 pixels in just 3.5-inch form factor. This means that the overall pixel density is more around 858. This number is enormous compared to 460PPI of Rift and Vive.

The display is also capable of 90Hz refresh rate and 100 nits’ brightness.

Samsung wants to make a strong stand in the VR headset department.

According to experts, there is a major reduction in “screen door effect” in the new display. The individual pixel is not visible and combines to produce stunning display.

Samsung currently provides a display in both Rift and Vive. These both display is of 1080*1920 with 90Hz refresh rate.

Samsung also produces smartphone display for Gear VR compatible devices. This display has higher 1440*1280 per eye resolution than that of Rift or Vive.

Surely, Samsung is putting the massive effort into the future display technology and might give a tough competition to Sony.
