Apple's AR and VR Headset Reportedly Packs 8K Displays

VR headset Report: Apple working on wireless AR/VR headset…

Apple looks set to throw its competition beyond voice computing wars as the company aims to have a great lead in the virtual reality field. It is slated for a 2020 release, and the product - if finalised - could be Apple's long-awaited breakthrough into the AR market.

The project codenamed T288 is still in the early stages of development but the report says that Apple plans for an 8K display for each eye, meaning the headset will have higher resolution than the best LED TVs out there.

Already in 2020, the market should appear a wireless headset that supports the technology of virtual and augmented realities, which are now developed by the engineers of Apple.

The software behemoth reported diluted earnings per share (EPS ) of $0.95 on revenues of $26.8 billion. Microsoft's stock closed up more than 2 percent to $94.26 in Thursday's regular session.

Coming back to the headset being developed by Apple, it has been reported that it will come with a dedicated box which will be connected to it. It would come with 16K resolution at user's end on both the eyes. Such a feature already places it ahead of the competition, as the HTC Vive Pro, already sharper than most of the other VR headsets, only offers up to 1,440 x 1,600 pixels per eye. WiGig 2.0, or 802.11ay, is expected to be finalized by 2019, so a 2020 release date fits for the headset.

CEO Tim Cook addresses at Apple's Chicago Event.

If we talk about the future, Augmented Reality would cover medical, engineering and more areas in the coming years. It would connect wirelessly to a chunk of hardware like a small tower, which would contain powerful processors to power the experience. Apple's most advanced mobile processor is the 10nm A11 Bionic processor which the company used in iPhone X. There's no 5 nm available in the market yet, that should take us some generations to achieve from today. This processor would work as a brain of the headset and the headset would be controlled by the built-in processor itself. In the coming years, the entire technology world will be changed with the Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality technologies.
