Anticipation For Meta’s Quest 3 Headset At Peak As Sleek New Design And Exciting Features Unveiled

The anticipation for Meta’s Quest 3 headset is at another high as new features including a robust design and sleek interface were made public today.

The Quest 3 VR product by Meta is not going to be arriving anytime soon until this year’s end but by the way it’s being described, we can understand why people are having a hard time waiting.

Thanks to Mark Gurman from Bloomberg, fans are getting a more up close and personal description of what might be on offer soon. He revealed how he was able to get a thrilling hands-on experience to better realize how the product works and how it compares to other rivals in the industry including Apple’s upcoming mixed reality initiative.

Gurman mentioned how such prototypes that have been dubbed Eureka are going to be lightweight in design and thinner in build than its previous version. Similarly, he shed light on how users can expect to see a head strap that was also stronger than before and one that made use of fabric on the edges instead of the classic Quest 2 plastic endeavor.

More importantly, the device’s front side would entail a new design and a better sensor suite with up to three different sensor areas that arise shaped like vertical pills. They would feature color cameras, other than the double standard cameras installed with a great sensor.

As one can imagine, the upgrade is massive from what we’ve witnessed through the likes of Quest 2 and it does not arise with any depth sensors or pass-through effects. The latter means users won’t be required to designate play space walls.

Meanwhile, the lower parts of the product would feature cameras for tracking, and then toward the bottom, we’d be able to see volume rockers with wheels to adjust for the interpupillary distances. So it’s possible to make changes while the user is still wearing the product and that would have never been possible for Quest 2.

The real clarity arrives with this Quest 3 and it’s quite similar to that seen with the previous model, other than rumors surrounding the higher resolution taking center stage. In the same manner, Gurman went on about how a pass-through for mixed reality apps and better performance is going to be enhanced over previous products.

Quest 3 seems to be a huge change from its older counterpart and it’s also thanks to the addition of cameras that come under the dual RGB category. Moreover, some claim they could make use of their smartphones while holding headsets and that’s not something people would have ever imagined to do with Quest 2.

Coming down to performance, Quest 3 is believed to feature a new Snapdragon chipset that would assist in shorter duration launch times and greater consistency for games.

But it’s important to note how Quest 3 would not be featuring any form of face tracking or detection through eyes which were seen commonly in the Quest Pro variant.

It’s only allowing for the system to put computing resources at a priority in areas that the user seems to be interested in. Moreover, another feature that we will not be seen in Quest 3 despite being in its predecessor are cameras that come mounted across controllers. But it is believed that Meta is working hard to improve on this aspect and better tracking in various ways.

For now, we are yet to have a clear understanding of how much the new device would cost. But experts predict it’s definitely going to be steeper than that observed for Quest 2 which was roughly $400.
