Samsung to Launch First Next-Gen 5.5-inch 4K Display for Virtual Reality Make it to The Galaxy S8



Samsung just showed its first prototype for a 5.5-inch 4K display which could be used in the company's future smartphones.  and 2016 has been described as “the Year of VR” a lot lately, and for good reason.

Tucked among the televisions, cellphones and monitors Samsung quietly was showing off a “high resolution for VR” 5.5” display boasting a 4K (3840 x 2160) resolution and a 44.7% increase in pixel density (806ppi). Samsung were showing off the new prototype display during Display Week in San Francisco, and while there are whispers that this is their next-generation display, it seemed to have lower frame rates, so this might need some more work yet. Still, a 5.5-inch 4K display would be a real big selling point for a Galaxy S8 device next year.

Samsung demoed the display and told the significance of 4K displays for VR. Samsung justified the same by exemplifying the difference between various displays like LCD, OLED, AMOLED, and so on. Samsung put the Bio Blue technology along with these displays to illustrate the importance of 4K displays for the VR.



Samsung also had other experimental technologies that might benefit VR as well. "Bio Blue", for example, could help reduce the amount harmful blue light coming from screens and bombarding our eyes. A lightfield display also helps give a sense of depth, almost like holograms, which can be viewed at different angles, with parallax in full effect.
