New Google VR headset to offer a resolution of 5500 x 3000 pixels with a pixel density of 1443 PPI and 120 Hz refresh rate

Google will soon come out with OLED screen for its VR headsets. The new Google VR headset will be offering a resolution of 5500 x 3000 pixels with a pixel density of 1443 PPI and 120 Hz refresh rate. This insane resolution will be a game changer for Google. This new Google VR headset resolution will be twice of what’s offered by HTC Vive and Oculus Rift. Currently, HTC Vive Pro VR headset offers a resolution of 2880 x 1600 pixels and pixel density of 615 PPI.

Clay Bavor, Google’s vice president for AR/VR said as per report by RoadtoVR “We’ve partnered deeply with one of the leading OLED manufacturers in the world to create a VR-capable OLED display with 10x more pixels than any commercially available VR display today.” saying that the panel under development would reach 20 megapixels per display – a bit higher than the display featured in the talk listed above, but holding the same implications.

Incorporating such a high-resolution display into a VR headset, Bavor explained, will also create enormous performance challenges of its own, and that data rates could range between 50-100 Gb/sec with current rendering configurations. Foveated rendering combined with eye-tracking is largely believed to be a solution to knocking down the massive graphical requirements for such a display.
