The videos outline the specifications for the standalone glasses, successor to the Oculus Quest for 2019, and it’s also on the site Live demos The glasses are scheduled for September 16 and 17.
This matches neatly with the previously popular (Oculus Quest 2) release date of September 15.
According to the videos, the new glasses are supported by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon XR2 platform, which is specially designed for virtual reality and immersive reality devices, unlike the Snapdragon 835 general-purpose platform that supports the original Oculus Quest.
One of the videos shows that the Oculus Quest 2 glasses include a 4K resolution screen, almost 2K resolution for each eye, and another video says: The glasses contain 50 percent more pixels compared to the original Oculus Quest.
The glasses also contain 6 GB of RAM (instead of 4 GB) and up to 256 GB of storage (instead of 128 GB), in addition to 3D spot audio, and the return of hand tracking without control.
Although the videos provide many new details about Oculus Quest 2, it is not clear what the screen refresh rate is.
Previous reports had indicated that the refresh rate may increase from 72 Hz to 90 Hz or even 120 Hz to display smoother motion.
There is also no mention of the size or weight of the glasses, and previous reports indicated that they will be smaller than the original glasses, and the videos show that the new glasses are streamlined and light.
The videos talk about a new soft-touch strap they say: It makes it easy to put on and take off the glasses, as well as updated controllers with a new work environment that Oculus claims will make it more comfortable to use.
Oculus Link support is also due to Oculus Quest 2, allowing you to use a USB-C cable to connect the glasses to a PC and use them to play PC-based VR games.
And it seems that (Oculus Quest 2) will be the first eyeglasses released by Facebook after its decision to require (Oculus) users to own a Facebook account.
Although users of the company’s current glasses can use a separate Oculus account until 2023, Facebook said that future devices will require a login to Facebook, regardless of whether there is a separate Oculus account.
