Meta Quest 3 Launching This Fall

This morning, Meta fully unveiled the Quest 3. It will release this fall for $499 and features a wide-range of improvements over the Quest 2.

The press release from Meta stated the following:

Quest 3 combines our highest resolution display and pancake optics to make content look better than ever. To power those extra pixels, this will be the first headset to feature a next-generation Snapdragon chipset developed in collaboration with Qualcomm Technologies. That next-gen Snapdragon chipset delivers more than twice the graphical performance as the previous generation Snapdragon GPU in Quest 2 – meaning you’ll get smoother performance and incredibly crisp details in immersive games.

According to Meta:

  • The Quest 3 has a 40% slimmer optic profile than the Quest 2 making it more comfortable.
  • There will be over 500 games at launch with cross-compatibility with the Quest 2.
  • The controllers are more ergonomic and feature Meta’s “TruTouch” haptics.

Meanwhile the Quest 2 will drop to $299 for the 128gb version when the Quest 3 drops while the 256gb version will retail for $349. It will also receive a software update that promises to improve performance across the board.
