Last week, Apple unveiled its long-awaited Vision Pro headset. With impressive features, the device hits the market as a strong competitor in the virtual/augmented reality sector.

According to rumors, the launch would have forced Samsung to rethink some aspects of its Galaxy XR headset, changing some aspects of its development and changing the launch schedule.

A new rumor reveals that Samsung is rethinking the specifications of its Galaxy XR headset. For years, the South Korean would be developing the device with a pixel density of 2,000 PPI. However, after seeing the Apple Vision Pro with 3,500 PPI, the South Korean decided that the display of her headset will come with 3,000 PPI.

New samples of the improved display could be manufactured in November, according to tipster @OreXda. A change of this size in the Galaxy XR headset is not simple and if true, Samsung will need to review its supply chain strategy and even postpone its launch.

Another informant claims that Samsung will not be able to launch the Galaxy XR before the end of 2023. If samples of the 3,000 PPI display are not available by November, the South Korean will need to schedule the launch for next year.

Some are betting that a small demo of the Galaxy XR could be revealed at the Unpacked event in July in South Korea, along with the Galaxy Z Flip 5, Galaxy Z Fold 5, Galaxy Tab S9 and Galaxy Watch 6.
