The two tech companies have reportedly teamed up to develop a new VR display this May at Display Week 2018. A program guide for the launch was posted by Digital Trends.

According to the guide, the set will be a “4.3-inch display with an 18-megapixel resolution” with a 1,443 pixel-per-inch ratio and a 120Hz refresh rate. The aforementioned specs would equate to a 5,657×3,182 resolution. This would make it the highest-resolution OLED VR yet. The event listing also says a “White OLED with color filter structure was used for high-density pixelization, and an n-type LTPS backplane was chosen for higher electron mobility compared to mobile phone displays,”

The rumored headset will be looking to take on displays such as the Oculus Rift and the HTC Vive Pro, the two having resolutions of 2880 x 1800 and 2160 x 1200, respectively.
