Google and LG creates VR AMOLED 120 Hz at 5500 x 3000

An amazing virtual reality OLED display under development by Google and LG has some downright impressive specifications:

  • 4.3 inch 18 megapixel AMOLED display
  • 5500 x 3000 resolution
  • 1443 dots per inch
  • 120 Hz refresh rate

Previous OLEDs were only 600 dpi, and this is twice the resolution of the HTC VIVE Pro.

Google made a large nearly-billion-dollar investment in LG to secure a supply of OLEDs for their Pixel phones, and it appears that this co-operation also extended to VR OLED displays. They will be showing this VR display at Display Week 2018 expo in May.

Being an OLED, it is anticipated that it will likely have a low-persistence mode similar to HTC Vive and Oculus Rift, to eliminate OLED motion blur.

We look forward to seeing VR headsets containing this display!

In the long term, we expect Frame Rate Amplification Technologies (FRAT) to eventually solve the GPU-side problem of driving high frame rates on high resolution displays. This is covered near the end of Blur Busters Law: The Amazing Journey to 1000 Hz Displays which VR scientists agree with.
