Oculus Quest 2 leaked by Facebook, features XR2, ‘almost 4K’


It seems that Oculus Quest 2 has leaked again, and this time by Facebook itself.

A ton of material surrounding the rumored device, which is actually called Oculus Quest 2, has been discovered on Facebook’s Blueprint website. Some of it has been taken down, but before others can stick it on YouTube, and some is still up. It includes in-depth observation as an undeclared headset, moving through some features and specs.

The video mentions that the headset has a new, more comfortable design that we already know about, less previous leaks of the device. It also details – the Quest 2 clearly has 6GB of RAM and uses Qualcomm’s Snapdragon XR2 chipset. This is a big jump from the original Quest, which had the Snapdragon 835.

It also gives players “a near 4K display”, with 2K per eye. The ‘Inside the Headset’ video below confirms that it has received 50% more pixels than the original Quest’s screen.

The video notes that Quest 2 will have a 256GB version and takes a look at the new controllers with “updated ergonomics”. The headset will also play your old Quest title, although we haven’t seen any new games or experiences yet. In the meantime, the Pulling Link support has been confirmed in the video below.

However, the videos do less than confirm the price.

It is very likely that this content was actually being saved for the Facebook Connect Developer Conference on Wednesday, September 16. The new show replaces the old Oculus Connect event and is widely expected to host the official reveal of Quest 2, among other announcements.

We will cover all the latest news from the show, so stay tuned. With Oculus Quest 2 leaked, are you planning to get the kit? Let us know in the comments below!
