Facebook Connect: Introducing Oculus Quest 2, a Partnership with EssilorLuxottica and More
At Facebook Reality Labs, our mission is to build tools that help people feel connected, anytime, anywhere. Today marks our seventh annual AR/VR conference, recently rebranded as Facebook Connect to reflect its broader scope. For the first time, the event was completely digital, free and open to anyone to attend. From cutting-edge VR headsets to all-day wearable AR glasses, we talked about building the future. And underpinning it will be a deeper sense of connection with the important people and things in our lives.
During today’s keynote, we heard from Facebook Founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg, Head of Facebook Reality Labs Andrew Bosworth and more as they shared AAA gaming partnerships, Quest Platform news and updates to Oculus for Business, among other announcements. Here’s a look at the highlights.
Introducing Quest 2
We announced Oculus Quest 2 – the next generation of all-in-one VR. It has our highest resolution display ever, weighs less than the original Quest and starts at just $299 USD. It comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon XR2 Platform processor and 6GB of memory to power even more immersive experiences, with newly redesigned controllers for better ergonomics and longer battery life. Pre-orders open today, and Quest 2 will ship October 13. Learn more here.
