Sony allegedly plans PSVR successor for next holiday season

Sony’s next-gen PlayStation VR headset is probably going to turn out in late 2022, as indicated by another report. Bloomberg’s sources say Sony is “aiming to release the successor in the holiday period next year,” and that the headset will utilize OLED panels from Samsung Display.

A release in that time period wouldn’t be excessively amazing, since Sony has effectively started talking up the PS5 headset’s potential. Its existence was first affirmed in February alongside some initial details, and Sony followed up by flaunting the new controllers in March.

The actual headset hasn’t yet been uncovered. Yet, as indicated by a UploadVR report from last month, it’ll have a total resolution of 4000 x 2040 and make use of eye tracking to empower foveated rendering, which should facilitate the processing load by utilizing lower resolution imagery in your peripheral vision. The next-gen PSVR is additionally said to use inside-out tracking and include haptic feedback in the headset as well as the controllers.

Bloomberg’s report is all the more extensively centered around Japan Display Inc, a LCD expert that has seen cell phone display sales slump as the market moved to OLED however now thinks about VR headsets “big business.” While OLED was at first the norm for VR, all the more recently makers like Facebook and HTC have been moving to LCD panels since they’re more practical at higher resolutions, in spite of having lower contrast. Sony, be that as it may, appears to be sticking with OLED for the next PSVR.
