Apple might be getting into the world of virtual and augmented reality in a big way.

According to a new report from CNET, the tech giant is planning to release a wireless VR and AR headset sometime in 2020.

The headset, which is reportedly codenamed T288, is said to have an 8K display for each lens, which is particularly noteworthy given that high-end headsets currently barely reach 4K. Moreover, the T288 is rumoured to be connected to a box through high-speed wireless tech called 60GHz WiGig, while a 5-nanometer proprietary Apple processor powers the device.

Notably, this would be a new, as-of-yet-unreleased chip for Apple, as the most current processor adopted by Apple — the A11 Bionic in the iPhone X — utilizes 10-nanometer construction. With chips such as nanometers, the smaller the number, the faster and more power efficient a device can be.

While Apple hasn’t yet commented on the reports, the company is planning to unveil more about upcoming products at its Worldwide Developers Conference, which runs from June 4th to 8th.
