Mark Zuckerberg, Meta founder and CEO has introduced the next generation virtual and mixed reality headset which is named 'Quest 3'. The new headset will be launched later this year (timeline not specified yet). The 128GB headset will be available at an expected starting price of $499.99 and users will get an additional storage option for extra space, the company said in a blog post on Thursday.
It further stated, "It features higher resolution, stronger performance, breakthrough Meta Reality technology, and a slimmer, more comfortable form factor."
Also, the new headset features a next-gen Snapdragon chipset which will enable the device to have more than twice the graphical performance as the previous generation Snapdragon GPU in Quest 2.
"On Quest 3, our best-in-class Meta Reality technology lets you seamlessly blend your physical world with the virtual one," the company stated.
The new headset is compatible with 500+ Quest 2 VR games and will have more titles which are set to come soon in the near future. Also, starting from June 4, Meta will reportedly lower the price of Quest 2 to $299.99 for the 128GB SKU (stock-keeping unit) and $349.99 for the 256GB SKU.
He further added, "We'll continue to sell Quest 2 and Pro alongside Quest 3, as well as continue shipping new software updates to make the Quest experience even better.”
