Samsung Showcases 4K UHD Display For VR

Samsung’s got a new prototype 4K 5.5" screen that offers a 44.7% increase in pixel density from 2K. Let’s hope the resolution doesn’t also mean a 44% decrease in battery life.

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). Shown outside of a headset, display itself was pretty gorgeous, bright with excellent contrast and color آ– however it seemed to be running at a lower frame rate, so it may currently have a less than optimal refresh rate for VR, though we were unable to verify this.
