Rumors have been circulating for a few months that Apple is preparing its new product, a mixed reality headset, for presentation at WWDC 2023. Accordingly tweet According to Ross Young, CEO of Display Supply Chain Consultants, who has shared accurate information about Apple products in the past, the new headset will feature displays with extremely high pixel density and brightness. In other words, every display will be 4K resolution.
Yang claims the AR/VR headset will feature two 1.41-inch MicroOLED screens, each with a pixel density of 4,000ppi and a brightness of more than 5,000 nits. According to him, the 5000 nits specification most likely refers to peak brightness, which means the headset doesn’t dazzle the user, but rather delivers better contrast and brighter colors than other headsets available today.
For SDR displays, peak brightness is often a measure of how well a display performs in brightly lit rooms as it corresponds to maximum brightness, and for HDR displays it is a measure of how well a display renders color and contrast. In comparison, high-end TVs have a brightness of 2,000 to 5,000 nits.
For example, with the Quest 2 VR headset from Meta* The display offers 773 ppi and 100 nits of brightness and the device itself is designed for the budget segment. However, when you look at the difference in specs between Apple’s $3,000 device and the less expensive Quest 2, it’s immediately clear just how impressive an Apple headset can be.
Apple is expected to introduce the headset, dubbed “Reality Pro,” at its developer conference starting June 5. The headset is rumored to have a physical switch from VR mode to real-life mode and enhanced hand-tracking capabilities.
