When it comes to VR, some of the biggest hurdles has always been price and the cumbersome technology that can be more trouble than it’s worth. While we’re still a good way away from high end headsets being affordable for many and with less wires, one option has been the Oculus Quest, with its relatively reasonable price point and completely wireless application. And now, an even smaller version is on the way.
According to sources close to Bloomsberg, a new version of the Quest is in the works. It will be lighter than the current version of the headset, which is already incredible light at only 1.25 pounds. It won’t just be the size and lightness however, the refresh rate will be higher than the current 72 Hz, being tested with screens supporting 120 Hz. Though it’s unclear what the final rate will be.
The updated version of the Quest was slated to come later this year, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic disrupting production lines it could slip into 2021.
