It looks like Oculus Quest 2 found its way on to the internet ahead of its official unveiling, and this isn’t the first time it has leaked.
The recently surfaced Oculus Quest 2 gives us a brief glimpse of the outward appearance, reveals a higher-quality display, coupled with 6GB of RAM, 256GB of storage, and a slew of other details. Originally listed on the Facebook Blueprint website, Quest 2 was accompanied by a 3-minute introductory video, which has now been removed.
Another trailer was also removed but been rehosted on YouTube channel DimetappWUT.
The aforesaid videos reveal a myriad of features of the upgraded all-in-one VR headset. Available in white color option, the headset sports a new display with over 50 percent higher pixel density as compared to Quest, offering nearly 2K resolution per eye.
Furthermore, it is smaller and lighter than the original. The controllers have undergone a radical overhaul to improve ergonomics. Under the hood, the Quest 2 packs a powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon XR2 processor, paired with 6GB of RAM, and up to 256GB of storage, potentially crafted to deliver a smoother experience than its predecessor.
Moreover, it can be connected to a PC using Oculus Link to play higher-powered games. Details about its release date and the price tag it would carry are still scarce.
It is highly likely this content was being saved for the Facebook Connect developer conference, which is slated to take place on Wednesday. The new show replaces the Oculus Connect event and is widely expected to host the official unveiling of Quest 2 in addition to other announcements.
