Facebook has officially launched the Meta Quest Pro, the more expensive sibling of the Meta Quest 2 (formerly known as the Oculus Quest 2), and released the full list of specifications for the device. The Meta Quest Pro will cost $1,500 and will ship starting October 25th. Pre-orders are open now.
With a price like that, it’s clear that Meta is targeting businesses with the Meta Quest Pro, and the official specs descriptions show that too.
Meta Quest Pro has four times the resolution of Quest 2 and supports augmented reality — meaning users can “create and collaborate in the virtual world while remaining present in the physical world,” according to Meta.
Compared to Quest 2, Meta Quest Pro’s optical stack is 40% thinner and provides more vivid colors. In terms of hardware, the Quest Pro features “10 advanced VR/MR sensors, surround sound, 256GB of storage, 12GB of RAM, and a Snapdragon XR2+ processor.”
The Meta Quest Touch Pro controllers feature three cameras and a Snapdragon 662 mobile processor, as well as haptic feedback. This means you don’t need the headset to monitor, as the controllers have their own set of sensors.
There is backward compatibility and Meta Quest Pro users can access any Meta Quest 2 catalog items.
In related news, during the same Meta Connect event, Meta also announced that Xbox Game Pass is coming to Meta Quest 2 via cloud gaming.
