According to the trusted analyst Ross Young of Display Supply Chain Consultants (DSCC), the Reality Pro should debut with a pair of advanced MicroLED screens with a size of 1.41 inches, 4K resolution, pixel density of 4,000 ppi and a maximum brightness greater than 5,000 nits.
Such specifications exceed any of today’s most advanced models. The Microsoft HoloLens 2, for example, on 2K resolution screens with only 500 nits of brightness, while the Magic Leap 2 offers a 1.7K display with up to 2,000 nits, and the Meta Quest Pro bets on 1.9K resolution with up to 1,200 nits.
MicroLED technology is also another differential of the Apple headset, offering superior brightness and contrast, and high-density thanks to microscopic LEDs capable of emitting their light, with high energy efficiency and exceptional durability as they do not use organic diodes such as OLED, which deteriorate. with time.
The “Reality Pro” is expected to an Apple M2 process the r (same as found in MacBook models), an external battery “the size of an iPhone”, almost 15 image sensors for high precision spatial recognition, a similar Digital Crown for switching between modes VR and AR, premium finish body with glass, aluminum and supposed external screen.
