Meta Quest Pro Leak Reveals First Look at New VR Headset — And It Looks Legitimate

Meta Quest Pro launches on October 11 at Meta Connect 2022, but we may have already seen a first look at the new VR headset – thanks to leaked images and a video from Zectariuz Gaming.

Spotted by The Verge, content creator Ramiro Cardenas posted a video of the Meta Quest Pro apparently left unattended in a hotel room, according to a Reddit post. The clip shows the VR headset and controllers being taken out of a box with an official looking “Meta Quest Pro” label. In addition, the design of Meta’s next VR headset looks identical to the renderings shown by YouTuber SadItsBradley.

From the images and video shown, we see Cardenas unboxing a black VR headset and controller, with the headset having three cameras on the visor. The controllers also look vastly different from the Meta Quest 2’s controllers, as there isn’t a loop in sight. In addition, the top of the controller shown has what appears to be a small, circular sensor, which can be used for enhanced body-tracking capabilities.

We’ve heard about VR controller cameras before and Project Cambria could be the VR headset to use this kind of body tracking sensor.

The Quest 2 Pro will reportedly feature two brand new 2.38-inch mini LED displays with 2160 x 2160 pixels (an improvement over the dual 1832 x 1920 pixel LCD panels of the Quest 2). The upcoming headset is also reportedly swapping its 1P Fresnel lenses for a 2P, pancake-like design.

Speaking to Laptop Mag, AlasItsBradley (Bradley Lynch) has secured an unofficial rough design of the Quest Pro (which could also be called the Meta Quest 2 Pro). This could be the same model as in the leak, as Cardenas shows the label from the VR headset box that reads: “Not for resale – technical sample.”

According to Lynch earlier this year, the Quest Pro has more mixed-reality capabilities (AR and VR) and is now more adaptable to a user’s head thanks to three IPD adjustments and a dial on the back of the headset that can be adjusted. to secure the device (this can be seen in the video).

Plus, the headset is lightweight and well-balanced, and eye and face tracking are said to be excellent; the headset could even catch the flickering of your nostrils.

While the alleged Meta Quest Pro shown in the leak looks legit, there’s a lot more to discover – from how it works to its tracking capabilities. While we wait for the big announcement on October 11, you can check out the best Quest 2 games right now.
