Meta’s upcoming Quest 3 Headgear will be Lighter and More Powerful: Report
Meta’s Reality Labs division made an announcement to its employees regarding the company’s plans for the future of its augmented and virtual reality (AR/VR) devices.
In the year 2025, the business is expected to launch its first pair of smart glasses equipped with a display. It is anticipated that Meta will produce its first pair of fully functional augmented reality glasses in the year 2027.
It was reported that Meta Quest 3 will offer enhanced form factor and processing power, in addition to a more advanced mixed reality that is comparable to that of Meta Quest Pro. Moreover, the price of the device will be higher than that of the Meta Quest 2.
In 2024, it is anticipated that a headset with the codename Ventura that is perceived to be more “accessible” and that may have fewer features than its predecessor will be introduced, following in the footsteps of Meta Quest 2 in terms of pricing and product strategy.
According to Meta’s vice president of VR, Mark Rabkin, it appears that the next iteration of Meta Quest, which is scheduled to be released in 2023, will be targeted more at enthusiasts than it would be toward typical users.
A prospective successor to the high-end Meta Quest Pro headset is referred to by its codename, La Jolla, and will not be released until “far out in the future” or until after Ventura has been released.
Codec Avatars, a form of virtual reality (VR) conferencing that Meta has been developing for years and that Facebook Zuckerberg sees as a potential killer app, will reportedly be supported by the device.
