We already knew Meta Quest 3 was on the way after Meta made its latest consumer VR headset official back in June – just days ahead of Apple’s Vision Pro reveal – but the company has now slapped it with a 10th October launch date, and pre-orders are open now.
April’s initial unveiling confirmed some top-level features for Meta’s new VR headset – which is now more accurately described as a mixed reality headset – but we now have a much clearer idea of the specs being packed into this third iteration of Quest.
Meta Quest 3 is powered by the Snapdragon XR2 Gen 2 processor – which Meta says can manage “double the graphic processing” of Quest 2 – and it includes 8GB of RAM. It also sports two 120Hz LCD displays, each delivering a resolution of 2064 x 2208 – described as a 30 percent increase compared to Quest 2 – plus a 110-degrees horizontal and 96-degrees vertical field of view. Lenses have an adjustable IPD ranging from 58mm-71mm.
