Since its founding in 2012, Oculus VR Inc. has revolutionized virtual reality technology and has been steadily bringing new and innovative products to market ever since. Just recently, the first information about model “Meta Quest 3” was leaked.
What is the Meta Quest 3 VR headset?
Meta Quest 3 is a standalone VR headset that can be operated without a computer or console. It is expected to feature 2K resolution per eye, 120 Hz refresh rate, and 110-degree field of view. Possibly, it will come with touch controllers that will allow intuitive control.
The new VR goggles are said to be the successor to the Meta Quest 2. However, it is said to be twice as thin and twice as light as the previous model. The Quest 3, like the Meta Quest Pro, is said to offer a better mixed reality experience.
New features and improvements
The Meta Quest 3 is expected to bring many new features and improvements. Mixed Reality via passthrough camera is said to be one of the biggest new features. For this, there are almost twice as many sensors on the front of the VR goggles as on the Meta Quest Pro. These are said to be a depth camera, two black-and-white cameras and two RGB cameras. Meta has reportedly already developed 41 new apps in the backhand, including mixed reality experience, for the new headset.
In addition, the Meta Quest 3’s improved body is thinner and smaller than the Meta Quest 2’s, indicating that the new VR headset may use the Meta Quest Pro model’s pancake lenses. If the Meta Quest 3 uses the same lenses as the premium headset, it is expected to offer a much sharper image than the Meta Quest 2. It is also expected that the Meta Quest 3 may once again rely on a simple fabric strap for the head mount to save costs and offer a more stable and comfortable head mount accessory.
Furthermore, it is speculated that Meta’s new headset might have a new Snapdragon XR2 Gen 2 chip installed. This would mean a performance increase of two times compared to the Quest 2.
The possible new software and improved MR experience are expected to be the selling points for the Quest 3. These new features will presumably also justify the new, higher price compared to the previous model. This is estimated to be between 300 and 500 US dollars.
The Meta Quest 3 could go on sale in the fall of 2023 with its presentation at Meta Connect. Meta’s next VR headset should also be released in 2024. It is apparently codenamed “Ventura” and is supposed to offer the best possible performance at the most attractive price.
The Meta Quest 3 VR headset is expected to offer many new features and improvements. In particular, the possible hardware feature through the sensors on the front of the VR headset can make an important contribution to the development of VR technology. Also, user can look forward to the better performance of the VR goggles. In our eyes, the Meta Quest 3 has enormous potential to become an important device in the VR industry!
We are excited and will test the Meta Quest 3 as soon as the VR headset is available.
