Sorting out suppliers

Asustek is choosing suppliers for its VR head-mounted display (HMD) devices so it can have its production start in the third quarter of 2017.

According to Digitimes, Samsung Display is likely to get the display panels work and the OEM production will take place in Taiwan. Samsung Display is the top choice for AMOLED panel supply among HMD developers becuase it has been making them a bit longer.

Microsoft's aggressive promotions on mixed reality (MR) technologies also prompted Acer, Dell, Asustek, Hewlett-Packard (HP) and China-based 3Glassses, to expand into the market. Samsung's Gear VR has had the strongest shipment performance in 2016, delivering over four million units worldwide. Samsung has also recently announced a new version of Gear VR for 2017 using the Oculus technology.

Microsoft's jointly developed mixed reality HMD for developers will begin shipping in March.
