Facebook says that the Quest 2 is about 10 percent lighter than the first, and is also a smaller one, which should reduce the front-facing heavy annoyance from the first model. There is also a new head strap that relies on flexible material rather than the previously tightened mechanism. Revised controllers also take some cues from rift touch controllers. They are a bit big, and they bring back the thumb rest that I missed from the first quest.
The company is making Quest 2 more customizable this time. It plans to offer various face plate options for wide and narrow heads. And if you missed the previous headstrap, it will return as a “premium” option with room for the rear battery pack. Facebook says the extra battery will double the runtime of Quest 2, and act as a counterweight to balance the entire abortion on your head.
So with Oculus Quest 2 being so capable, what does crack S mean? Okay, it seems that Facebook also finds that the midling headset no longer runs at some point. The company says it will stop selling Dar S in the spring, and it will focus on Quest 2 as its flagship tool for the next year. It is devoting resources to building more Quest 2 units (to help overcome production issues beforehand), and is making a big push in Japan.
You will be able to illuminate Quest 2 on 13 October. The $ 299 model will come with 64GB of storage, but there are also $ 399 models with 256GB playing hoarders out there for you.
