Meta Quest 3 headset is 4 times cheaper than Apple and will be released in October

【PhoneAuto News】Although Apple has not yet launched its own headset product, many manufacturers have felt threatened.

According to foreign media reports on May 29th, Meta plans to incorporate upgraded mixed reality technology into its latest Quest 3 headset, while also undercutting Apple in terms of price.

According to Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, who broke the news, he has experienced a prototype version of the Quest 3 headset, which is expected to be released in October.

He said that the earphone, code-named “Eureka”, is thinner and lighter than Quest 2, abandoning plastic straps and instead using fabric straps. At the same time, the hardware of the Quest 3 headset has been upgraded, allowing users to see the real world around them. It will be equipped with a pair of RGB color cameras, which can provide a “realistic real world”.

Gurman said that there are position tracking cameras, volume knobs, and lens adjustment wheels at the bottom edge of Quest 3. These are relatively large upgrades. It is reported that Quest 2 supports interpupillary distance (IPD) values between 56 and 70 mm, with three settings: narrow (IPD < 66 mm), medium (61 mm to 66 mm IPD), and wide (IPD > 66 mm). Quest 3 will allow IPD adjustment without taking off the headset.

In addition, it is said that the Quest 3 controller no longer has a grip ring function, but relies on improved air-hand tracking.

According to leaks, Apple’s upcoming “Reality Pro” headset will use advanced eye tracking and imaging hardware to provide a mixed reality experience, with a price tag of over $2,000. The Quest 3 may be priced at over $400, potentially at least four times cheaper than Apple’s headset.
