The Japanese publication Nikkei Industrial News reported that Sony would provide apple with OLED micro display for its rumored ar/vr glasses. Since then, the report has been confirmed by rossyoung, an analyst in the display industry. He said that many sources have informed him that Apple really plans to use Sony’s micro display technology for its head mounted accessories.

According to framos, a supplier of embedded vision technology, Sony’s OLED micro display is a cutting-edge small display. It has the advantages of ultra fast response speed, ultra-high contrast and wide color gamut to achieve accurate color restoration, high brightness and low reflectivity. It is very suitable for Apple’s glasses.

The OLED (organic LED) micro display of Sony semiconductor solutions is a cutting-edge small video display that provides fast response, high contrast image technology and accurate color restoration. The extremely thin display brings visual improvement to applications in ar/vr/mr, broadcasting, electronic viewfinder, industrial maintenance and medical treatment. With large aperture and high brightness, wide color spectrum, less reflection and high dynamic range, and they will not appear any motion blur at extreme speed.

Sony’s micro display also integrates a driver, realizing a light and thin design, and has a power-saving mode, which can extend the battery life. Young said that Apple glasses are expected to use a 0.5-inch display with a resolution of 1280×960. These specifications seem to correspond to Sony’s ecx337a components. According to Sony’s website, this micro display has a maximum brightness of 1000 nits, an ultra-high contrast of 100000:1, and an ultra-fast response speed within 0.01 milliseconds.

The high contrast provided by Sony micro display enables additional information layers to appear seamlessly rather than as a stack. “This information is simply added to the background to get a ‘real ar’ experience.”

According to the daily industrial news, Apple plans to release ar/vr glasses in 2021, but analyst Kuo expects that it will not be released until 2022 at the earliest. The news from young is more accurate. He believes that this kind of glasses will be launched in the first half of 2022.
