Rumors about a new augmented reality headset from Apple have surfaced online. And we are talking about a second-generation model, although even the first has not yet been released. It is alleged that this model will receive a display with a pixel density of up to 4000 pixels per inch (Dots per inch, DPI).
According to rumors, LG will produce these displays, it was supposed to begin mass production of micro-OLED panels. Such screens are characterized by a high level of brightness and consume relatively little energy. Similar screens are probably preparing and Sony. By the way, in the first version of the headset there will be Micro-OLED screens of the Japanese company.
At the same time, it was previously said that Apple plans to use displays with a density of 3000 pixels per inch, as well as bring them to the market. AP Systems was involved in the development, she also develops models at 4000 pixels per inch.
Note that new screens should appear by 2024, so around the same time, we can expect the appearance of the second-generation headset itself. In addition, Apple augmented reality glasses are expected to appear in the same year. analyst Jeff Pu believesthat they will appear at the end of 2024.
As expected, the new AR glasses will be heavily dependent on the iPhone due to design features. That is, in fact, they will be just a wearable display option, and not a standalone device.
