Analyst Ross Young has revealed fresh information about Apple’s highly anticipated AR/VR headset, ahead of the upcoming WWDC 2023 event. The headset may include dual displays with a remarkable brightness of 5,000 nits.
Apple’s AR/VR Headset Display Specifications
According to analyst Ross Young, Apple’s upcoming AR/VR headset may feature dual displays with impressive capabilities. While previous rumors mentioned 4K micro OLED displays with an 8K total resolution, Young provides more specific details.
- Each display on the AR/VR headset will measure 1.41 inches diagonally.
- The brightness level of the displays is expected to exceed 5000 nits.
- The pixel density will be around 4000 pixels per inch.
Apple’s AR/VR headset stands out from other VR headsets on the market by supporting high dynamic range (HDR) content. Most existing headsets offer lower brightness levels, with Meta’s Quest 2 supporting only 100 nits and Sony’s PS VR2 offering 265 nits.
The 5000 nits brightness mentioned by Young refers to peak brightness. This allows for superior contrast, vibrant colors, and enhanced highlights, all without causing discomfort to users. In comparison, high-end TVs generally offer around 2000 to 5000 nits of brightness, ensuring an immersive viewing experience.
If Apple achieves its target of 5000+ nits brightness, their AR/VR headset will provide unmatched display quality.
Software and Applications
In addition to impressive hardware, Apple reportedly plans to bring various Sports, Gaming, and Fitness apps to the AR/VR headset, enhancing the overall user experience.
Price and Availability
While Apple’s AR/VR headset is expected to be one of the more expensive virtual reality headsets on the market, with a rumored price range of $3,000 (Rs. 2,48,210 approx.), it will be competitive in price with AR-based products such as the Magic Leap 2 and the HoloLens 2.
The highly anticipated WWDC 2023 event is just a few days away, bringing us closer to obtaining more information about Apple’s VR headset. The wait to learn more about the device will soon come to an end.
