The Meta Quest 3 was unveiled at the Meta Quest Gaming Showcase 2023 back in June. However, its primary features and pricing were kept a secret until now. Meta and Reality Labs have finally revealed the specs of the Meta Quest 3 headset along with its release date and cost.
Meta Quest 3 is all set to be launched on October 10th. The headset will come in two variants– 128GB and 512GB, which are both priced at $499.99 and $649.99, respectively. It will offer players an extraordinary new experience in mixed reality.
The Meta Quest 3 weighs a hefty 515 grams which is just a little more than its predecessor. It comes with six advanced camera sensors; 8 GB of RAM and an LCD monitor with a resolution of 2064×2209.
The VR headset uses the Qualcomm Snapdragon Xr2 chipset and has a 120Hz refresh rate. The controls have also been redesigned to boost efficiency. Meta Quest 3 supports a 6E Wi-Fi signal for seamless gameplay.
Surprisingly, the battery life of the Meta Quest 3 is nothing spectacular. With a full charge, players can enjoy up to 2.5 hours of gaming. This is similar to the Meta Quest 2 which offers 2 hours of usage when fully charged.
Here’s what you can expect in the box:
- Meta Quest 3 Headset with pre-installed Standard Facial Interface
- 2 Touch Plus Controllers with wrist straps and 2 AA Batteries
- Charging cable & power adapter
Meta Quest 3 comes with a one-year warranty which includes defect and malfunction coverage. The highly-anticipated VR action title Asgard’s Wrath 2, which releases in December, is also included in the headset.
The developers have confirmed that Meta Quest 2 will not be discontinued yet. Additionally, most games are likely to be compatible with both headsets. With the Meta Quest 3, gamers can choose from over 500 immersive experiences with more titles on the way. Pre-orders for the Meta Quest 3 are currently available.
