While the Galaxy Note 4 is still warm fresh out of the oven, news of the possible Note 5 screen begins to arrive. And it is that Samsung could already be preparing a 5.9 ” Super AMOLED screen with 4K resolution and more than 700 dots per inch. Could Oculus consider a screen with such a resolution for the CV1? We will get out of doubt in “a few months”.
The news comes from PhoneArena, who claim that although it is not confirmed, Samsung has already hinted that AMOLED screens with 4K resolution would be its goal for 2015. There is no doubt that 4K at 90 Hz would be the best way to fight the screendoor effect and achieve the presence in a future HMD, but at the same time it would put a tremendous burden on graphics cards. In the case of Oculus, it might seem that the most sensible thing would be to launch the CV1 with a screen similar to the one used by Crescent Bay and save the jump to 4K for the next iteration of the Rift, but nothing has been decided… or yes, since Oculus claims to have the specifications of the final version closed, but they do not seem willing to release anything at the moment, nor in the near future. Meanwhile, a poll has been launched on our forum to vote on what the final resolution of the Oculus Rift CV1 will be. Bets are accepted.
