OLED display tech might have emerged as the natural choice for AR or VR headsets though Samsung seems to have other ideas. For as per what the company’s Display exec Kim Min-woo said in a recent microLED conference held in South Korea, microLED displays might do a much better job in AR and VR headsets. The executive said this has to do with the higher levels of luminance that are needed for the reproduction of an image in AR that microLED displays can provide effectively, Notebookcheck reported.
However, with manufacturers ever on the lookout for producing AR or VR headsets that are slimmer and lightweight, the need of the hour is thinner components, something that applies to the displays as well. It is this that has led to the development of LEDoS which is being put forward as a new variant of microLED panels that are a lot slimmer. This has been achieved by having the diode chips to be attached directly to substrates that are made of silicon instead of glass. It basically is the same architecture that has seen application in some high-end smart TVs.
Kim Min-woo is calming such advanced microLED displays can have insanely high pixel densities of 6,600 pp. Also, the pitch, which is a measure of the distance between pixels is expected to be up to 5μm. With such parameters, Samsung is pushing for greater adoption of LEDoS display for the production of advanced AR devices of the future while OLEDoS can be best suited for the development of VR products. It will be interesting to see how things pan out in the future on this front, or what display tech headset manufacturers opt for eventually.
With a keen interest in tech, I make it a point to keep myself updated on the latest developments in the world of technology and gadgets. That includes smartphones or tablet devices but stretches to even AI and self-driven automobiles as well, the latter being my latest fad. Besides writing, I like watching videos, reading, listening to music, or experimenting with different recipes. Motion picture is another aspect that interests me a lot and maybe I’ll make a film sometime in the future.
