Apple could use Samsung’s OLEDoS panel in next-gen Vision Pro headset


Apple plans to release the Vision Pro XR headset in the first part of 2024. But following a recent story, the business is already working on a sequel. The Apple Vision Pro 2 may come with a more sophisticated RGB OLED display from Samsung Display. Rumors about the upcoming version of Apple’s Vision Pro headset are already circulating, even before its arrival on store shelves. According to rumors, Apple plans to release the Vision Pro 2 by 2027, featuring a cutting-edge RGB OLEDoS display manufactured by Samsung.

According to MacRumors, RGB OLEDoS technology eliminates the need for a color filter by generating light and color directly from adjacent RGB sub-pixels on a single layer, making it a significant improvement over the WOLED (White Organic Light Emitting Diode) with a color filter found in the first-generation model. RGB OLEDoS technology eliminates the need for a color filter by generating light and color directly from adjacent RGB sub-pixels on a single layer, as per MacRumors. This results in noticeably higher brightness when compared to WOLED and color-filter OLEDoS displays, which depend on filtering white light via an RGB color layer. Its efficiency also exceeds that of color filters and WOLED technology.

Following its acquisition of eMagin earlier this year, South Korean tech giant Samsung is presently the only firm capable of manufacturing RGB OLEDoS screens, according to an Omdia report. According to an Omdia report, if Apple proceeds with the update, Samsung is expected to replace Sony in Apple’s supply chain. Though their production capacity is rather modest, a few companies are now producing MicroOLED panels with color filters. Remarkably, RGB OLEDoS displays do not require a color filter since they employ red, green, and blue OLED on silicon. The RGB OLEDoS displays have less color filtering than the WOLED and color filter OLEDoS displays, which makes them brighter.

As of now, just one company, eMagin, in the US, produces RGB OLEDoS panels for the military. A few months ago, Samsung Display purchased eMagin. With the bundled battery pack, the Vision Pro can currently run on a charge for up to two hours. The Vision Pro 2’s total battery life may be improved by the efficiency gains that have been documented. There are allegations that Apple has been developing a less expensive version of the Vision Pro, one that would lack a few functions to make the spatial computer more accessible.
