Apple’s virtual reality (VR) headset rumors may include a high-resolution micro OLED display with up to 3,000 pixels per inch, according to Korea The Elec.

Apple has reportedly asked South Korean company APS Holdings for a sample of a screen component called a thin metal mask (FMM). Apple has specifically requested samples from an FMM that can supply 3,000ppi high-resolution screens for use in virtual reality (VR) headphones, the report explains.

The company is expected to test the FMM sample to see if it is suitable for mass production of a VR device. An FMM is a plate of metallic material that is used to deposit red, green, and blue organic materials and form pixels in the production of OLED panels.

APS Holdings has developed an FMM with a more advanced laser pattern technique that can offer much higher resolution micro OLED displays. Current FMMs used in the production of OLED screens for smartphones offer up to 600 dpi with a wet engraving technique, but the FM APS Holdings laser pattern has much smaller holes to make 3,000 dpi possible. Therefore, the laser pattern is said to be Apple’s preferred manufacturing technique for displaying headset rumors.

The APS Holdings dashboard is also an RGB dashboard, instead of the white dashboard commonly used on OLED displays, meaning it doesn’t need a color filter. A micro OLED display also offers some additional advantages, such as pixel sizes between four and 20 micrometers, compared to 40 to 300 micrometers with standard OLED panels. In addition, the micro OLED has a much faster microsecond response time which is also expected to be more suitable for augmented reality (VR) and augmented reality (RA) applications.

It has been repeatedly reported that Apple is trying to develop advanced micro OLED displays for its VR and AR devices, but this is the first indication of the resolution the company is apparently aiming for with these products. Apple’s trusted analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said the micro OLED displays will allow for a “visible AR experience,” as well as virtual reality experiences.
