 Oculus Quest 2 Pro Lets You Experience the Virtual World for Less

Oculus Quest 2 Pro Lets You Experience the Virtual World for Less

Oculus quest 2 pro doesn’t mean that Meta-owned Oculus isn’t working on the next big thing, with the Oculus Quest 2 VR headset offering exceptional standalone performance and a wide range of apps and games. In place of the Quest 2 Pro, we got a teaser for “the next Quest,” a high-end VR headset dubbed “Project Cambria” that should be released later this year. Unofficially named the Oculus Quest 2 Pro, we at Tech Advisor believe the leaks concerning a more powerful version of the Quest 2 are actually Project Cambria.

‘Project Cambria’

Mark Zuckerberg made it quite apparent throughout the ceremony that ‘Project Cambria’ is a high-end item. “The next Quest” was a term he used to describe it, but he underlined that it was a “totally new, advanced and high-end product” that would be sold at “the higher end of the pricing spectrum.” The Zuck did state, however, that Meta intends to expand its product range and release the most advanced VR innovations through the suggested high-end gear before these advancements can eventually trickle down to entry-level Quest costs. Meta All the latest information regarding the forthcoming Quest Pro headset, including release date and pricing rumours, is here!

What is the release date of the Project Cambria headset?

Some speculate that the Oculus Quest 2 Pro model won’t be released anytime soon, given how popular the ordinary model is, and Meta’s ambiguous statements appear to reinforce this. VP of Augmented and Virtual Reality at Meta, Andrew Bosworth, remarked, “Quest Pro? This is interesting,” and then winked, hinting that Meta is secretly working on a newer, more powerful version of the Q2 in a recent Instagram Q&A. At Facebook Connect 2021, Mark Zuckerberg introduced Project Cambria, a high-end headgear that many informally labelled the Oculus Quest Pro, hinting a release could be on the books for early 2022. It’s now clear that the Pro-level headset won’t be delivered in Q2 2022, the period spanning April to June of that year.

According to fellow analyst Ming-Chi Kuo: 

A “new Oculus Quest” will be released in the second half of the year, starting in July. Late in June, Twitter re-iterated this assertion with claims that the high-end headset will begin mass production in Q3 2022 ahead of a launch sometime later that year, with an objective to distribute approximately 2 million headsets this year. The Information, citing an internal Project Cambria roadmap, claims that the high-end headgear will be released in September 2022.

For the time being, this one is a little more difficult to call. With a suggested retail price of $299/£299, the Oculus Quest 2 is an exceptional value for a VR headset that doesn’t necessitate the use of a gaming PC.

In order to get the Pro version, you’ll have to pay more, but there’s no clue on how much. During Facebook Connect 2021, Mark Zuckerberg referred to the next headset as “high-end” with features like real-time facial tracking, which suggests a significantly higher price range than the entry-level Quest headset. When it comes to general market acceptance, we’d expect a price around $699/$699. Rumors back up our projection. From what we can tell from a leaked internal roadmap at The Information, Project Cambria will cost $799 in the United States, which we can guess equates to £799 here in the United Kingdom. According to Ming-Chi Kuo, the headgear will cost $799 when it goes on sale in 2022. The Project Cambria and Chromebook analogies suggest Meta is looking at this more as a ‘laptop for your face’ than a conventional VR headset, despite the fact that it is far more expensive than the Quest 2.

What to anticipate from the Oculus Quest, the most expensive headset in the line

  • Enhanced processing capabilities
  • Newly reworked size
  • A new set of control.
  • tracking of the face and eyes
  • Innovated lens technology

At Facebook Connect 2021, Mark Zuckerberg offered us our first glimpse at the high-end VR headgear, known internally as Project Cambria. A high-end virtual reality experience, mixed reality, face and eye tracking, and a focus on integrating the real and virtual worlds will make it an entertaining one.

When it comes to mixed reality: 

Zuckerberg stated that the headset would have a number of sensors and algorithms to rebuild the environment around you as well as colour, which is a major increase from the black-and-white passthrough of the conventional Oculus Quest 2’s colour display. Ming-Chi Kuo, an analyst, claims that the new headgear would have up to 16 cameras – 10 on the headset and three on each of the new controllers – to help with this. In spite of the additional sensors that detect your eyes and facial expressions in real-time, Project Cambia is noticeably thinner than other standalone headsets. It may appear strange at first, but social VR apps will benefit greatly from it.

In a Q1 2022 earnings call, Mark Zuckerberg claimed that Project Cambria will “be more focused on work use cases and eventually replacing your laptop or work setup,” rather than games.

Aired a follow-up video in which he shows off the headset, but it remains hidden from view. Virtual items may be dropped into the actual environment using the headset’s high-resolution colour passthrough, which is demonstrated in a short film. Additionally, Meta has made an additional 2.5 minute film presenting the Presence Platform, which underpins the augmented reality experience, and showcasing the vast differences between the Project Cambria and Quest 2 headsets.

All we’ve got so far is this, but what about rumours and leaks? There’s been a lot of it around…

Intensity and showmanship

  • The Oculus Quest 2 isn’t lacking in power, but the ‘Pro’ designation of the next model hints that the Pro model will be much more powerful in the processing department.
  • However, because Qualcomm has yet to release a successor to the Snapdragon XR2, Meta may be forced to develop its own chipset for the forthcoming headset if it wants to increase processing power.
  • Meta’s Android-based operating system will operate on the future headgear, according to The Information, which claims that it will be about as powerful as a Chromebook. However, the information does not go into detail regarding the internals.
  • In terms of immersive VR experiences, it’s unlikely to be able to compete with PC-based systems, but it will help close the gap.
  • With an updated processor, panels might have a higher resolution and a more reliable 120Hz refresh rate, which is currently experimental.
  • Even said, Ming-Chi Kuo’s allegation that a Meta-developed chipset will be used in the headset is still unconfirmed at this time.
  • A 2.48-inch display with a greater resolution of 21602160 pixels per eye is predicted for “significant visual enhancements” in the Project Cambria headset, according to the analyst.

Videos that have been leaked

  • According to Twitter user Bastian (credited to Samulia), the new Oculus Pro headset will come with official lessons that look very different from those for Oculus Quest 2.
  • Quest 2 Pro mockups show a black VR headset with a headband that appears more. Like a pair of ski goggles than a headgear for virtual reality. 
  • Again, we’re getting closer to the glimpse of Project Cambria that we got from Meta. A brand-new set of lenses has been developed.
  • An investment report from Ming-Chi Kuo in June 2021 claimed that Meta and Sony had both ordered huge quantities of new virtual reality lenses for 2022. Although no specifics were provided, it’s possible that the new lenses may improve FOV.
  • When asked about the upcoming Project Cambria headset at Facebook Connect 2021. Head of VR Devices Angela Chang revealed it would use “pancake optics” to wrap light many times into the lens. The method would make it easier to make small lenses, which would aid in the overall slimness of the headset.
  • A “2P Pancake” lens, according to Kuo, will replace the present Quest 2 headset’s 1P Fresnel lens.

Tracking has been improved.

For hand tracking, the Quest 2 is excellent, but the forthcoming headgear appears to be much better. Rumors have it that there will be a slew of new trackers specialised. To tracking various areas of your body, including your hands.

An eye and facial tracking system is expected to be included in the Project Cambria headgear. Which is expected to allow for a more immersive virtual reality experience.

Controllers have been improved

There is a good chance that the controllers may see some upgrades as well. Additional haptics like those found on the PS5’s DualSense controllers could greatly enhance the gaming experience. Even if the present models are well-designed and provide adequate vibrational sensation.

Oculus Quest 2 Pro

There have been reports of a more significant shift, however. Towards the end of September 2021, Reddit user Samulia shared several low-res photographs of. What he claimed were brand-new Oculus Touch controllers. Unconfirmed images of what could be modified Oculus Quest controllers. Appeared on Imgur days after the Reddit leak, although an Oculus administrator discounted them.

If it’s a leak, should I be worried?

Slack competitor Workplace appears in the leaked image, which suggests that the leak came within Meta itself . However it could just be another organisation using Workplace as their remote work communication centre. An infrared LED ring will be replaced by three cameras (one in front and two on either side). Enabling inside-out tracking. Which will give the controllers a considerably cleaner appearance overall.

Several leaked films from October 2021 on Twitter gave us another sneak peek at the controllers. The leaked videos appear to show controllers without tracking rings. Like per earlier speculations, and they may also have a wireless charging station. Oculus Touch controller redesign is appearing more and more likely. Given the numerous leaks that all point to a new controller. But the normal grain of salt should be applied.
