The Apple Vision Pro 2 is said to get brighter, more efficient RGB OLEDoS displays from Samsung.

Apple is preparing to launch the Vision Pro in early 2024, with production of the mixed reality headset ramping up in China ahead of the launch. As Apple’s spatial computer nears release, the company has already set its sights on the Vision Pro 2. The Cupertino, California-based tech giant reportedly intends to improve the displays on its second headset. The successor to the Apple Vision Pro is expected to have brighter and more efficient micro-OLED displays. The upcoming Vision Pro already has excellent twin micro-OLED displays, which, according to Apple, will have more pixels than a 4K TV for each eye.

The Apple Vision Pro 2 will have an RGB OLEDoS display when it launches in 2027, according to a report from market research firm Omidia cited by Korean news outlet The Elec (via MacRumors). The new displays will be an improvement over the WOLED displays with color filters that were used in the first-generation Vision Pro headset.

The upgraded displays, according to the report, do not require color filters because the RGB OLEDoS technology generates light and color directly from nearby RGB sub-pixels on a single layer. Displays that use the technology are significantly brighter and more efficient than WOLED and color filter OLEDoS displays.

Furthermore, Apple’s long-time rival Samsung is the only company that currently supplies RGB OLEDoS displays.

According to the report, Samsung will be the likely supplier for Apple if the iPhone maker decides to upgrade the displays on the Vision Pro headset following its acquisition of OLED microdisplays manufacturer eMagin. This, however, would not be unusual given that the South Korean technology conglomerate has long manufactured the OLED displays used on Apple’s iPhone models.

The Vision Pro 2 is said to be in the works under the codename Project Alaska. According to last month’s leaks, the second-generation Apple headset could be released in 2026 with a redesigned rear strap. The Vision Pro 2 also has two Micro OLED displays with semi-automatic interpupillary distance (IPD) adjustment, a TrueDepth camera, four computer vision cameras, two RGB cameras, two low-light infrared illuminators, and a variety of other smartphone sensors.

Meanwhile, the first-generation Apple Vision Pro units are expected to be available in January 2024. According to TF Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the headset will be Apple’s “most important product of 2024.” In 2024, the company expects to ship up to 500,000 units. According to Kuo, Vision Pro units are currently in mass production and will begin shipping in the first week of January 2024.
