when Apple Vision Pro debut in WWDC 2023We got some details, but not the whole picture. For example, Apple promised “more pixels than a 4K TV per eye” in its two Micro OLED screens, but hasn’t actually given us the display resolution of its new headphones.
Well, we now have a better idea of the Apple Vision Pro’s display specifications thanks to a little explanation from Apple. In a developer video demo, apple He mentioned that for 2D content, the Vision Pro excels at 4K resolution and a 90Hz refresh rate — with a proprietary 96Hz refresh rate that will be automatically applied to content created at 24 frames per second. There is also native support for SDR and HDR, which we already know.
We may also finally have an idea of what “pixel transmission instead of a 4K TV per eye” means, though that’s still speculation. newly Offer supply chain consultants The report states that based on Apple’s official spec of 23 million pixels across both screens, each Micro OLED display in the Vision Pro has a pixel density of “about 3400 pixels per inch and the display resolution for each display is” about 3800 x 3000″ (h/ R Flatpanels HD).
Apple Vision Pro shows up against the competition
If the Apple Vision Pro can really manage a resolution of 3800 x 3000 per eye, this will put it above the other mainstream Virtual reality headsets outside. the Meta Quest 3The screen’s display resolution remains a mystery, though Meta calls it “our highest display resolution to date.” So expect to splurge on a display resolution of 1832 x 1920 per eye for Meta Quest 2 and the Meta Quest Pro. But I’d be surprised if its $499 price tag can match the accuracy expected from an Apple Vision Pro.
Vision Pro also beats PSVR 2 in display resolution. The PSVR 2 also promises 4K resolution with its dual OLED screens, but it tops out at 2000 x 2040 per eye. So, while both can handle 4K content, the Vision Pro will be the ultra-high resolution.
However, the 90Hz refresh rate is surprisingly standard for headphones that cost $3,499. The Quest 2, Quest Pro, and PSVR 2 all managed to match this metric, and the Quest 2 headset can manage a 120Hz refresh rate with a post-launch software update. However, none of them feature the Vision Pro’s 96Hz refresh rate for 24fps content. Unfortunately, we still don’t know the refresh rate for the recently announced Quest 3.
