Facebook leaks new version of the VR headset


from Dominik Zwingmann
Oculus Quest 2 is on its way! Facebook leaked the successor to the all-in-one VR headset on its own website before the unveiling. Two videos showed the new hardware in action. In addition to a color change, players can look forward to improved technologies compared to its predecessor. Oculus Quest 2 will be officially unveiled later this week.

Actually, Facebook only wanted to talk about new announcements on Wednesday as part of their Facebook Connect developer conference. Now the company was responsible for a leak at the event itself. This is Oculus Quest 2. Two videos of the VR headset are on the website of Facebook blueprint popped up for a brief moment. These can now also be found on YouTube.

However, the successor to the all-in-one VR headset is not a surprise. In July 2020, a picture of a new Oculus Quest appeared on Twitter. At that time there was still talk of Oculus Quest S. But Facebook has now decided on a 2 in the name of the hardware. The games from the predecessor will all continue to run on the new VR headset. Facebook has not yet commented on the leak.

Oculus Quest 2 with technical and ergonomic improvements

While the price and release are still unknown, the specifications of Oculus Quest 2 have already been determined. The hardware of the VR headset is equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon XR2 processor, 6GB RAM and up to 256GB internal memory. The resolution per eye is now almost 2K and thus offers 50% more pixels than its predecessor. Ergonomic improvements have also been made to the controllers and the headset itself. Among other things, Oculus Quest 2 should be smaller and, above all, lighter than the previous model. We'll keep you informed here.
