Features the new Snapdragon XR2 CPU.
It hasn’t been officially announced, but Facebook’s upcoming VR headset, the Oculus Quest 2, was accidentally leaked online. The device is scheduled to be revealed during the company’s Facebook Connect conference happening next week.
The Oculus Quest 2 will have upgraded hardware without changing much of the design. The Oculus Quest 2 is a standalone headset, which doesn’t use any type of sensors, unlike other VR headsets. It can fully play all Quest games and even display VR games from a Windows PC using the Oculus Link accessory.
As for the hardware, the Oculus Quest 2 will run on the Snapdragon XR2 processor. It can provide double the CPU and GPU performance compared to the Snapdragon 835 running on the first generation Oculus Quest. This also allows the VR headset to achieve an ‘almost’ 4K resolution at around 2K pixels per eye. Other specifications include 6GB of RAM and up to 256GB of storage.
No word yet on pricing but we should be knowing more about the Oculus Quest 2 once it gets officially announced by Facebook next week.
