Galaxy Note 7 or Galaxy S8 May Have 4K Display Made for Gear VR!

Apparently, Samsung has been working hard behind the scenes to make the next generation Gear VR with a 4K display.  Current virtual reality headsets top out at around 2K including the Gear VR, Oculus Rift, and HTC Vive.  Having a 4K display may mean Gear VR users will finally be able to enjoy their virtual reality with double the resolution.  This will literally KILL other standalone VR products like Oculus Rift and HTC Vive since the resolution experience alone is going to be twice better.

This prototype is a 5.5-inch 806PPI 4K display that may be coming to the upcoming Galaxy Note 7 or Galaxy S8.  Our HOA experts believe that this prototype is made for the Galaxy S8 and timeline may be too short to be featured on the upcoming Note 7.  However, there is still a slim chance that Note 7 may be the first 4K-based Gear VR.  FYI, Galaxy Note 6 will most likely be called the Note 7 instead this year.

If this 4K display does make it to one of the future Samsung smartphones, the big question is going to be about battery life and actual 4K usage.  While 4K display may benefit virtual reality experience, it may be advisable to have an automatic display switch between 4K for VR and 2K for everything else.  We have seen Sony’s Xperia Z5 Premium bringing the world’s first 4K smartphone but the phone only plays back 4K videos while everything else is 1080P, really making it a 1080P phone with 4K video playback.  If Samsung could do the same thing but have 4K for VR and 2K for everything else, then we might just have our winner for very high-res VR and excellent battery life.
