Meta Quest Pro Release date
Meta has now officially announced that the Meta Quest Pro will ship on October 25th 2022.
This is the same for both the UK and US markets.
Meta Quest Pro specs
Meta has gone for the pancake lenses in the Quest Pro, allowing the overall lens assembly to be 40% thinner, similar to how the PICO 4 VR works.
The Meta Quest Pro also comes with a charging dock, allowing the headset and both controllers to charge simultaneously.
Additionally, there will be a lot of emphasis on expression tracking, supposedly allowing for more realistic person-to-person communication.
