The horizon of virtual reality enthusiasts is tingling with excitement as Meta’s Quest 3 VR headset appears to be on the cusp of release. A new Meta-crafted VR headset has emerged in the database of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), a decisive step that signifies its readiness for sale in the United States.
Notably, the FCC label adorning this device intriguingly refrains from explicitly featuring the nomenclature “Quest 3.” Yet, discerning observers, as highlighted by UploadVR, connect the dots. Given Meta’s prior announcement of the Quest 3 and their pledge to unveil further details during the forthcoming September Connect event, combined with the conspicuous similarity of the FCC label placement to that of Quest 2, it becomes an informed conjecture that this listing indeed pertains to the Quest 3.
Moreover, the filings have already hinted at a noteworthy enhancement: the integration of Wi-Fi 6E technology. Meta’s vows of a substantial upgrade from Quest 2 appear poised for realization with Quest 3.
Do you realize that in today’s dynamic tech scene, the line between tablets and laptops has become increasingly blurred? The pursuit of a unified experience continues despite the fact that iPad Pro and Windows tablets such as Surface Pro 9 offer distinct advantages:
The impending model boasts a sleeker design, harnesses the prowess of a novel Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset, and introduces the novel feature of color passthrough. However, this elevated experience is set to be accompanied by a relatively higher price tag. While the Quest 2 can now be acquired at a newly discounted starting price of $299.99, the Quest 3 is slated to debut at a base cost of $499.99.
Supplementary to the impending headset, the FCC database has also unveiled two handheld controllers of Meta’s crafting. This discovery, initially noticed by UploadVR in July, strongly suggests that these are the all-new Touch Plus controllers destined for Quest 3. Notably distinct from their Quest 2 counterparts, the Touch Plus controllers eschew the outer tracking rings while embracing Meta’s signature “TruTouch” haptic technology, as witnessed in the Touch Pro controllers of the Meta Quest Pro.
The excitement surrounding the Quest 3’s unveiling gained further momentum when Meta disclosed their intentions to divulge substantial insights during the forthcoming Meta Connect event scheduled for September 27th. This anticipation aligns with the revelation that the device will commence shipping in the fall season. Enthusiasts eagerly await the potential revelation of an exact release date during this eagerly awaited event.
