Sony may have released the PlayStation 5 last year, but it is yet to replace PlayStation VR (PSVR). However, according to Bloomberg, Sony plans to address this next year, probably in the autumn.

Bloomberg's report is the first to offer an approximate release date for Sony's next-generation VR headset. In February, Sony confirmed that it would release a PlayStation 5 VR headset, just not in 2021. At the time, the company claimed that the headset would be the culmination of lessons that it had learned from its previous VR ventures, presumably including PSVR.

Apparently, Sony has looked to Samsung to supply OLED panels for its next PSVR headset, with an alleged 4,000 x 2,040-pixel resolution. The headset will support foveated rendering too, via iris tracking. In principle, this will allow the device only to generate what someone is currently looking at, allowing it to do so at a native resolution.

Additionally, Bloomberg believes Sony's upcoming VR headset will utilise haptic feedback, like the DualSense controller. Supposedly, the headset will connect to the PlayStation 5 using a USB Type-C connection, which should offer simplicity where other VR headsets do not.
