Oculus Rift Dev Kit 2 Uses Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Displays

I stumbled on this yesterday, but didn’t get a chance to post on it. iFixIt tore apart the Oculus Rift Dev Kit 2 units that have recently started shipping. Turns out their new 5+” 1920×1080 screens are actually repurposed 5.7″ Samsung Galaxy Note 3 AMOLED screens.

This is definitely a cost conscious and smart choice, since the displays can be had at a discount and have great contrast and color.
