During the Display Week tradeshow in late May, Google and LG are reportedly set to reveal a highly-detailed 18-megapixel 4.3-inch OLED VR headset display. You can see the session, which will take place from 11:30AM – 11:50AM on Tuesday, May 22nd, listed in this advance program here.

According to the session summary:

An 18 Megapixel 4.3” 1443 ppi 120 Hz OLED Display for Wide Field of View High Acuity Head Mounted Displays

The world’s highest resolution (18 megapixel, 1443 ppi) OLED-on-glass display was developed. 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. A custom high bandwidth driver IC was fabricated. Foveated driving logic for VR and AR applications was implemented.

With the Vive Pro on the horizon, the Pimax 8K headset (pictured above in the featured image) and other high-resolution headsets with increased visual fidelity all coming soon, the resolution wars are quickly getting underway. Next to the need for wireless headsets, resolution concerns are often near the top of the list for most VR consumers.
