This isn’t the primary 3K LCD panel we’ve seen offered by show suppliers. At 2019’s Show Week AUO offered a 3456×3456 LCD panel with greater than 2000 backlight parts to assist HDR. Nonetheless, that panel was bigger (2.9 inch) and we haven’t heard something about it since. Actually, AUO’s sales space at this yr’s Show Week didn’t characteristic any VR-sized panels in any respect.
JDI at present provides the 2K (2160×2160) panel utilized in HP’s Reverb headsets. It’s 2.9 inches diagonal, so these new 3K panels are concurrently smaller and far greater decision.

Neither JDI nor Innolux revealed if they’ve a buyer but, but when this does attain merchandise we might be in retailer for a brand new era of compact extremely excessive decision VR headsets.
