Oculus Quest 2 VR headset revealed

Looks like Facebook couldn't wait to show the world its upcoming VR headset refresh and "accidentally" leaked the upcoming Oculus Quest 2 VR headset.

Like the previous generation, Oculus Quest 2 is an all-in-one virtual reality device.

In a snafu of sorts, Facebook and Oculus' latest product, the long-rumoured Oculus Quest 2, has been leaked. It was, of course, hastily removed, but not before the folks over at ResetEra got their hands on it.

In a series of videos shared to Facebook Blueprint (spotted by Aiman Farooq but now locked), Facebook described how the Oculus Quest 2 VR headset would be significantly more powerful thanks to upgraded hardware and specifications. You can check out both of these videos below.

The videos included live demos of the headset, as well as a detailed breakdown of the Oculus Quest 2's specs.

Also included in the leak is that all current Quest games will work on the Quest 2. So, for some games, you will be able to completely ditch the controllers. A follow-up to the Quest has been expected for some time, and now it's been fully revealed: a little sooner than expected.

When were we expecting this announcement?

This is apparently almost 50 per cent more pixels than the original Quest, which also had 4GB of RAM and 128GB of storage.

Curious enough, it appears that several YouTube tech influencers, including UrAvgConsumer and Potato Jet, have had some had on with the Oculus Quest 2 already. Be sure to tune into that stream if you're interested in hearing more about Facebook's VR strategy.

Tomorrow you can possibly confirm all these details, see this presentation again, officially and, in addition, know the price for which these new virtual reality glasses will go on sale.
