Facebook reveals Oculus Quest 2

VR ready.

Facebook has revealed the Oculus Quest 2 headset seemingly ahead of an official announcement planned for this week.

A couple of videos popped up on the Facebook Blueprint website showing off the next all-in-one VR system. Some of the information has been taken down, but some remains - and of course the videos were ripped and published to YouTube.

We have specifications but not release date or price. Here's a list of what's inside:

  • Qualcomm Snapdragon XR2 processor
  • 6GB RAM
  • Nearly 2K resolution per eye - over 50 per cent more pixels than Quest 1
  • 3D positional audio
  • New controller ergonomics
  • Optional 256GB of built-in storage

Also of note, all Quest games work on Quest 2, and there's a new softtouch strap to make the headset easier to slip on and off. The Quest 2 is smaller and lighter than its predecessor.

Expect more on the Oculus Quest 2 when the announcement is made proper, probably at the Facebook Connect developer conference on Wednesday, 16th September.

Sometimes we include links to online retail stores. If you click on one and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. For more information, go here.
