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 image to each eye. Oculus is 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 played coy about where it obtained the improved screen for the latest kit, not mentioning Samsung at all.
The Facebook-owned firm reportedly has an arrangement with Samsung to build its own VR kit, but it could just as easily have bought up a bulk supply of Note 3 replacement displays online.
We asked Oculus for more information on its Note 3 use, but the firm offered a standard "no comment" response.
