LG, Google redefined the future of VR with 18 MP 3xPPI OLED digital display

After the reveal of a “secret project” been worked on since March, the future of virtual reality was given an uplift of redefinition by Google and LG with launch of OLED. Currently being labelled by Google as the “World’s highest resolution OLED on glass display” with a resolution of 3,840 x 4800, this world class invention holds the power of enhancing the pixels per inch (PPI) by three times with a field view of 120 x 96.

This 18 MP heavy headset in terms of weight has been invented to work in pair with each OLED screen covering each eye separately. The foveated rendering technique does the trick by focusing on only what the user looks at while fading out the view from the corner of the eye. The application of foveated rendering was the result of a Research carried by Google itself that led to the facts like: FOV of human eye is 160 x 150 and the upper limit of resolution being 9000 x 9600 which guided Google to the use Integrated Circuit (IC).

In comparison to HTC vive which offers a 1080 x 1200 resolution with 448ppi and a 3.6 inch screen, whereas the  Vive Pro that uses 3.5-inch 1440 x 1600 displays at 615ppi. Google and LG’s OLED display offers a 4.3 inch screen, 1443ppi and resolution of 3,840 x 4800. Also a refresh rate of 120 Hz. With the invention, the conventional idea of 538ppi has been successfully overthrown by the inventing firms bringing a new figure of 1443ppi forward eventually giving the VR an injection of boast it craved all this time.

 

We developed and fabricated the world’s highest resolution (18 megapixel, 1443 ppi) OLED on glass display panel. The design uses a white OLED with color filter structure for high density pixelization and an n‐type LTPS backplane for faster response time than mobile phone displays. A custom high bandwidth driver IC was fabricated

The launch of this product for sale has yet not been made obvious, however the inventors highly rely on their invention for bringing about some revolution into the over all industry and actually bringing the VR into limelight which it has been deprived of for a long time.
