Last year at the Society for Information Display’s 2017 conference Clay Bavor the head of Google VR/AR announced his team was working on a "secret" project. It's now believed that secret project was a brand-new HD OLED VR glass display that will be announced in May.
Currently, the highest end VR headsets on the consumer market have a 2-megapixel resolution per eye with roughly a 110° field of view. The secret Google OLED should sport 10 times the resolution and more than double the field of view of current standard displays on 2.5 x 4K displays. According to 9 to 5 Google, this year's advance program for the Information Display Conference states that it will reveal an "18 megapixel 4.3-inch OLED display with 'wide-field-of-view.' Meanwhile, a 1443 PPI is touted with a 120-Hz refresh rate."
