Oculus VR recently unveiled their 3rd-Gen VR HMD development kit, codenamed Crescent Bay. Oculus would not reveal any details regarding the display panel used, but they did confirm it is a new OLED display.

Oculus Rift HMD prototype

Oculus adopted a low-persistence AMOLED display for their 2nd-Gen VR HMD - and it was later discovered that it is the same Super AMOLED display used in the Galaxy Note 3 (complete with the touch layer and all).

Oculus is collaborating with Samsung, and their newest AMOLED is also made by SDC (not that there are any other AMOLED makers that are likely to supply to Oculus at the moment). I wouldn't be surprised if the new panel is the one used in the new Galaxy Note 4 - 5.7" QHD (2560 x 1440) Super AMOLED.

Display

The display was running at 90Hz. Maybe that is a clue for deciding if it's a Note4 display or not.

There is a suggestion the screen might be a 21:9 display:
