of Oculus tasks For those who want to get involved in the virtual reality world without spending a penny (or entangled in sensors), this is a boon. This is an excellent choice for people who don’t have a VR-ready computer setup, it offers higher power options, such as Oculus Rift S.
Now, Facebook chooses not to use its other lightweight, affordable VR headset Oculus Go, and Quest remains the best and most reliable choice in this category. This also means that the company is seeking to expand its appeal through low-cost VR. In short, it means the sequel to the original Quest: Oculus Quest 2.
With this in mind, all eyes are on Facebook for official disclosure and further information about what we might expect from Quest 2. In addition to various rumors, our expectations for expectations are still largely blank from Oculus Quest2. However, in order for you to get started quickly, we have provided all current information about headphones in this guide.

Oculus Quest 2 release date
Facebook hasn’t provided any clear announcements on the pricing or release date of Quest 2, but as usual, with large debuts like this, there are rumors constantly boasting about what we can expect.
At the beginning of this month, Nikkei Asian Review According to reliable sources, Oculus Quest 2 will apparently be “in mass production around the end of July.”
Following these reports, the latest Twitter leaker Walking cat There seems to Announced a new tentative release date Applies to Oculus Quest 2: September 15th. On July 24, the account posted a photo of the headset with the date as the title.
As early as May 2020, we have been passing Bloomberg At that time Quest 2 was in the advanced stage of testing in Facebook’s Oculus department. This may mean that the rumored September date is not impossible.
To get a better view of the problem, the original Oculus Quest was launched a year ago, so if we do see Quest 2 in September, we are looking for a reasonable timetable. In the purely digital age, we may find more information about Oculus Quest 2. Oculus Connect 7 The event will be held this fall. Although it is usually held from mid-September to early October, it is likely to be scheduled for the debut of Quest 2, as neither has announced when it will be held.
Oculus Quest 2 price
Just as there was no official announcement about the release date of Oculus Quest 2, there was no news about the price. When you have it in stock, the price of Oculus Quest is between 400 and 500 dollars, which may seem a bit high for some budgets, but it is still relatively cheap compared to the more expensive VR brothers.
Quest 2 is likely to eventually reach this price range, and if Quest 2 is not completely discontinued, it will receive a potential discount. So far, it seems that no substantial changes have been made to the core product, and this will result in a major difference or price increase, making it a cost limit at a different price from the original product.
Oculus Quest 2 specifications
Since we have little information, it is difficult to determine what specifications we can get in Quest 2, but Bloomberg’s original report does provide some information on the size of the device.
If the initial report is true, then our weight and overall size will be about 10% to 15% lower than its predecessor products. The images leaked through WalkingCat do indeed show a smaller and more streamlined headset, but it is difficult to say exactly what has changed.
We can see from the early images that Quest 2 may remove the interpupillary distance (IPD) adjuster to help change the lens distance for various users. It is not clear whether it was simply moved, or whether the model completely abandoned this option.
Internally, the original Quest used Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 CPU to power the device. Snapdragon 865 is now the preferred CPU that may be used here, but Facebook can choose a cheaper model (such as Snapdragon 855) to save some money and pass the savings on to users. Compared to Quest’s 4GB, it may also include additional RAM, but this has not been confirmed.
Otherwise, we can identify some kind of fabric inside (probably to increase comfort), a larger nose bridge (probably to prevent light from entering) and dual microphones. Currently, Facebook remains silent in all other respects.
Oculus Quest 2 controller
We may see some of the biggest changes to Quest 2 in the form of the included controllers. In April, VR developers Gerald McAllister A special driver is recorded in the Quest firmware update. The “Oculus Jedi Controller for Oculus Del Mar” driver appears to reference Quest 2 by internal codename.
Unfortunately, there is little discernible about the appearance of the Quest 2 controller or the features it comes with. At present, the Oculus Touch controller that comes with Quest has an accelerometer and gyroscope, which can accurately track with the 30Hz flicker of the original Touch controller. According to McAlister’s findings, it is believed that the new Jedi driver will use 60Hz IR LEDs and may improve the sensor and touch.
In terms of size or overall shape, the external dimensions of the controller may not change much, if any. This is another part of the information that we do not yet know.
Oculus Quest 2 pre-order
Currently, there are no real-time reservations for Oculus Quest 2. The product has not been officially released or discussed, but all of this may be carried out during the aforementioned Oculus Connect 7. Product reservations will be online at the same time, so we will pay close attention to any possible announcement events outside of this specific disclosure, which may give way to bookers.
