The LTPS TFT-LCD display has a screen size of 3.42-inches with a pixel density of 651ppi and will be used in VR glasses. It will solve the grainy image issue plaguing current VR display and the fact that it uses Low Temperature Polycrystalline Silicon Thin Film Transistor Technology allows it to have such a high resolution.

The display also has a high refresh rate of 90Hz and a liquid crystal response speed of just 3ms. It also has an improved animation mode which results in clearer images.
