Oculus Rift DK2's 1080p visuals are provided by a Galaxy Note 3 display

The display within the second Oculus Rift developer headset was lifted directly from the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, according to reports on Thursday.

An iFixit breakdown of the Oculus DK2 showed the VR company had used the exact 5.7-inch AMOLED panel from the Note 3 in order to feed a 1080p images to each eye. Oculus is also overclocking the display to run at a higher refresh rate according to the report.

The display, which hides within a little rubber case, retains the touch module and the Note 3′s front panel featuring holes for the home button and the front-facing camera.

Where’d it get them?

Oculus had previously been coy on where it obtained the improved screen for the latest kit, not mentioning Samsung at all.

The Facebook-owned firm has an arrangement with Samsung to built its own VR kit, but it could just as easily have bought up a bulk supply of Note 3 replacement displays online.

We reached out to Oculus for more information, but the firm offered a standard "no comment" response.
