Facebook has leaked the next Facebook VR, the Oculus Quest 2. News outlets reported on Monday that details of the headset had been published on the Facebook Blueprints site but the post has now been taken down.

Eagle-eyed fans were quick to capture and repost the video of the headset, presenting the VR as a spec upgrade to the current Quest. Oculus Quest 2 will be a standalone headset, which means it will not require external sensors or processing hardware to function. The video also reveals it will play all original Quest games and will have the ability to display VR games running on a Windows PC via Oculus Link.

In terms of size, the next edition of the Oculus Quest is relatively smaller and lighter than its predecessor, with controllers featuring upgraded ergonomics. According to the video, the Oculus Quest 2 will sport a Qualcomm Snapdragon XR 2 processor and a new 4k display, making it capable of delivering as much as 50% more pixel density than the first headset.

The Snapdragon XR 2 processor will be a significant upgrade from the Snapdragon 835 of its predecessor, which was adapted for the Quest from mobile phones. According to Qualcomm, the Snapdragon XR 2 is capable of providing up to two times the CPU and GPU performance of the first Quest, as well as four times the pixel throughput and 11 times the AI operations per second of the Snapdragon 835.

Dubbed as “the highest-resolution headset they’ve ever made,” the Oculus Quest 2 will feature 6 GB of RAM, 2 GB higher than the original unit. The video also reveals that the headset will offer up to 256 GB of storage and will feature 3D positional audio. It will also come with a redesigned headstrap in the form of a “new soft touch strap.”

The Oculus Quest 2 is compatible with the Oculus Link cable, allowing users to plug it into a desktop gaming PC and expand the number of games available to use.

The Facebook video did not reveal the price of the new VR headset, but Walmart previously listed a headset codenamed “Oculus Point Reyes” for $399.
