Meta’s Quest 3 VR headset is likely to be out there to buy someday quickly. A brand new Meta-made VR headset has just shown up within the Federal Communications Fee’s (FCC) database, that means the gadget could be bought within the US.
As noted by UploadVR, an image of the FCC label on this gadget doesn’t truly embrace the phrases “Quest 3.” However provided that Meta has already announced the Quest 3, promised to share extra in regards to the gadget at its September Join occasion, and that this new headset has its FCC label in mainly the identical spot because the Quest 2, it looks as if a fairly protected guess that this itemizing is for the Quest 3. And one enchancment we will already inform from the filings? The brand new headset will help Wi-Fi 6E.
Meta is promising that the Quest 3 shall be a giant improve over the Quest 2, with a slimmer design, a brand new Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset, and help for shade passthrough. Nevertheless, it’ll come at a costlier value: whereas you will get the Quest 2 for a newly lowered starting cost of $299.99, the Quest 3 will begin at $499.99.
Two Meta-made handheld controllers have additionally appeared within the FCC’s database, which UploadVR noticed in July, and it appears probably they’re the Quest 3’s new Contact Plus controllers. Meta already revealed that the Contact Plus controllers will look completely different from those who got here with the Quest 2 and gained’t have the outer monitoring rings. They’ll additionally include Meta’s “TruTouch” haptics discovered within the Meta Quest Professional’s Contact Professional controllers.
When it announced the Quest 3, Meta mentioned that it’s going to have “tons extra to share at Meta Join” on September twenty seventh and that the gadget will ship within the fall. Fingers crossed we get a agency launch date at the show.
