Google VR OLED Display Leaps Current HMDs with 1,443 PPI

A new OLED display for virtual reality glasses leaps competition.

Google announced last year that the company will develop a high-definition OLED display for Virtual Reality glasses. Google is now set to unveil this display. Google will present a 4.3-inch 18MP OLED display with 1,443ppi and 120Hz at the SID 2018 in May.

The new OLED display is design for wide field of View and high acuity head-mounted displays (HMDs). Google's Carlin Vieri will present the display at the SID show. The new Google VR OLED display more than doubles the PPI of current OLED display found in HMDs. It's still unknown who the partner company of Google is. It could be LG Display or SDC.

Eagle-eyed OLED-Info spotted the Google VR OLED display details in the preliminary program (pdf) for the SID 2018. Google could have chosen a more general title of the session and not spill all the specs ahead fo the conference. The presentation will take place on May 22 at 11:10 am in LA.

Google has so far focused on the mobile device based virtual reality glasses. The development of new cutting-edge OLED display points towards Google entering into competition with HTC and Oculus.
