Sony shows an updated Morpheus VR HMD with an OLED display

On March 2014, Sony unveiled the Morpheus VR HMD system, specifically designed for the PS4 console. The original prototype system shown by Sony used a 5" Full-HD (1920x1080) LCD panel, but reports said that Sony plans to replace the LCD with an OLED display in the production model.

Now Sony unveiled a newer prototype of the Morpheus VR headset, which indeed uses an OLED display - a 5.7" 1920x1080 one. This OLED has lower latency (under 18 ms) and a higher field of view. Sony also said that the headset will launch in the first half of 2016. This is not a huge surprise - OLED enables a much faster display which is crucial for VR applications. Oculus's VR system also uses an OLED panel.
